Contributor Jay Trucker has this review: The banner atop the stage during Thursday night's tour-opening performance said it all. In size-72 font was the billboard for monosyllabic lead guitarist Slash, followed by a colorful size-48 font promo for his current lead singer-collaborator, Myles Kennedy. Below Kennedy's name, in 12-point font was the name of their touring rhythm section, the Conspirators.  For their part, the Conspirators were a capable and enthusiastic group, tearing through a 19-song set that showcased Slash's solo material and his work withGuns N' Rosesand Velvet Revolver equally.

Not only is he regarded as one of the greatest guitarists of all time, but Slash was also behind one of the greatest rock bands of the past 25 years. And while his days as the lead guitarist for Guns N' Roses ended long ago, Slash has since moved on to other endeavors, namely, as the lead guitarist for supergroup Velvet Revolver. The quintet includes former Stone Temple Pilots front man Scott Weiland and other founding members of GNR. Before Velvet Revolver launched its latest tour, Slash talked about his days in GNR, the future of Velvet Revolver and, of course, Axl Rose.

Take the heart of Guns N' Roses, the soul of Stone Temple Pilots and add a shot of attitude from Wasted Youth, and you get the supergroup Velvet Revolver. With its driving throwback approach to rock, the quintet (lead guitarist Slash, bassist Duff McKagan, and drummer Matt Sorum, all formerly of GNR; Dave Kushner of Wasted Youth; and lead singer Scott Weiland of STP) returns fully charged on the newly released Libertad. The album, whose title is Spanish for liberty and freedom, is the much-anticipated follow-up to Contraband, VR's multi-platinum 2004 debut.
