The cool stuff:


Watch the first of the multi-segment digital series featuring weekly studio updates of Slash with Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators!


Ever wish you could be a fly on the wall in the studio while Slash was recording – watching the iconic guitarist collaborate on tunes with band mates Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators?  Well now you can, thanks to Ernie Ball guitar strings, who have launched an innovative online series titled, ‘Real to Reel with Slash.’

“We’re incredibly excited to give music fans an inside look into the recording process of one of the most anticipated Rock albums of the year!” said Brian Ball, Vice President of Ernie Ball Inc.

The weekly segments will take you inside the entire in-studio recording process of Slash’s forthcoming third solo album along with his world-renowned ‘partners in crime’ Myles Kennedy, Todd Kearns and Brent Fitz.  The cameras roll from the first day of recording  to the last, following along with  Slash and The Conspirators from pre-production at NRG Studios in Los Angeles to Studio Barbarosa in Florida, as they write, play, create and record the new album from start to finish. 

Slash and Myles emphasize that creatively, it was crucial for them to bring the recording process back to basics and keeping it simple.  This new series will set out to document that process by capturing the essence of a classic rock band utilizing the often forgotten art form of recording to two-inch analog tape. Yes, you read that correctly…two-inch analog tape!  They’re rollin’ old school for this one, folks! 

This unprecedented access will give viewers up-to-date, virtually real-time progress on the recording journey each week, along with commentary from the band members, gear talk, and more.  

A new episode clip will be featured for fans every week starting  today (February 25).  Check out the first one here!

  1. Analog way of life. There’s something to be said about the importance of every wire and circuit and inch of tape it takes to be authentic.

    Thanks guys.

    • Thanks for checking it out and leaving a comment. I love analog recordings and still buy vinyl. Yesterday, had a kid who manages a punk band ask me a question about disclaimers for explicit lyrics and it came up that they are releasing on CASSETTE. I was like, “WTF for real – that’s awesome” and he said it’s “the new thing – like a movement”… Just when I think I’m getting old, I’m made to feel older by not knowing that it’s now cool to do something old. I cannot win. 😉
