Slash Talks About the Current State of Rock Music and His Favorite Bands + Video

In a new interview with USA Today, Slash discussed the current state of rock music and his feelings about it saying, “Rock isn’t mainstream anymore, and in some ways, I like that. It harks back to when rock ’n’ roll was more of an underground concept, when people were speaking about things that they weren’t necessarily comfortable saying in the mainstream arena.”

Slash also commented on his favorite rock bands. "My favorite band consistently has been Queen of the Stone Age because they always put out cool, interesting records. But I still listen to a lot of old stuff because the rock 'n' roll that turned me on as a kid, not too much of it exists.”

Slash’s fourth album Living the Dream was released September 21. Below is a video for the second single “Mind Your Manners”
