Slash Stepping Away From Guns N'Roses For Solo Tour

Guns N'Roses guitarist Slash will be taking a little break from GN'R to hit the road solo.

His solo band, Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, will launch 20-date U.S. tour in September before Guns N'Roses launches a massive tour of Asia later this year.

The tour will kick off at L.A.'s Whisky A Go Go, one of the clubs where Guns N'Roses first got their start. Slash has also promised a new solo album coming soon.
