Slash Recalls Contracting COVID Along With Conspirators Members When Working on New Album

When promoting his band's new album '4', the veteran guitarist spills on the funny experience he and his bandmates had despite their best effort to stay safe for the recording.

AceShowbiz - Slash and his Conspirators bandmates all contracted COVID-19 while working on their new album, "4". The guitarist, singer Myles Kennedy, and their bandmates were working on their fourth album together when they all fell ill.

"We took a tour bus to Nashville to keep ourselves safe - to get there and not travel commercially," Slash tells Germany's Radio Regenbogen. "And then we went and recorded the whole record, and then I got a phone call from Myles in the studio when I was about to do overdubs, and he goes, 'Man, I tested positive.' "

"Subsequently, two of the other guys tested positive, so they all had to go into quarantine. And we still had to do percussion and background vocals, and so we sort of stalled. So we mixed what we had, which was a lot. And then we recorded the background vocals in the guest house of the house that we were all quarantined in."

"Then those guys got better and I tested positive, finally. And so I had to quarantine. But I just got vaccinated, so I only had to quarantine for a few days. And so I came out, and then we did the percussion and mixed the record and drove home. So that was the funny experience about this particular record, was everybody having to navigate the whole COVID experience."

Slash and his band recently released "The River Is Rising", the opening track and first single from "4". In a teaser clip ahead of the album's release, he gushed, "I think the record itself is probably the best one we've done so far. We're showing no signs of slowing down."
