The first ever Gibson Brands Alternative Press Music Awards sponsored by Monster Energy Drink are without a doubt already the musical event of the summer. This event has a truly incredible list of outstanding performances and guest musicians slated to appear. There is no other awards show of this nature that can rival it. Adding to the excitement, it has just recently been announced that legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and Grammy award winning guitarist Slash is set to receive the first ever Guitar Legend Award presented by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This certainly is an honor for Slash and coincides beautifully with the history of Alternative Press Magazine as Slash graced one of the first covers of the magazine back in late 1980’s.




After many decades of creating musical history Slash is still going just as strong as ever with Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators releasing their new album “World On Fire” on September 16 through Dik Hayd International which happens to be Slash’s own label. This will be the third solo album that Slash has released and the second album to feature his band Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators. The album’s title track and first single “World On Fire” has already broken into the Top 15 on the Active Rock Charts. Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators are currently embarking on nationwide summer tour supporting legendary classic rockers Aerosmith while also performing a handful of headlining solo gigs along the way.
