Slash told The Pulse of Radio;
"He was one of these sort of youngish rock singers that I wasn't real familiar with, who is probably one of the best, you know, young new rock 'n' roll singers around. There's actually two songs on the record that he did, and he can basically perform any other songs on the record, plus he knows how to do all the Guns 'n' Roses stuff. So it's worked out nicely."
Slash's solo album is due out on 6th April. To kick off the release, Slash will be the featured performer at Revolver Golden Gods Awards, with several of his album collaborators making special guest appearances.
Slash will also make a series of late-night performances with talk show hosts Jay Leno, George Lopez and Craig Ferguson.

* Tuesday, April 6 - "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" (NBC)
