Slash has confirmed that his third solo album with his band Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators will be released this September. No title has been revealed yet for the disc, which the group completed recording earlier this week. Slash told me that leading his own solo outfit continues to be a great experience: “One of the great things about working with these guys is there’s no issues. All they want to do is play, and they love rock ‘n’ roll and they’re just — they’re fully into it and it’s sort of like when you’re working with people that don’t have any other baggage that they’re concerned about.”
August 2 – MGM Grand Garden Arena – Las Vegas, NV

A new documentary dredging up the baseless and completely discredited theory that Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain was murdered and did not commit suicide is tentatively slated for release this year. Titled Soaked In Bleach, the film recreates events in Cobain’s life with actors playing the troubled musician and his wife, Courtney Love, while also featuring interviews with forensic experts, investigative journalists and law enforcement officials.
The film has been spearheaded by Tom Grant, a private investigator who was hired by Love “to find her missing husband” during the last days of his life.
Grant has been pushing — for 20 years — his theory that it was in fact Love who was somehow behind Cobain’s death.
The police have never found any evidence to suggest that Cobain’s death was anything but a suicide.
“Joe Satriani: The Complete Studio Recordings” will arrive on April 22nd. A companion book will follow on May 6th. Satriani tells Billboard.com he’s not dishing any dirt in “Strange Beautiful Music: A Musical Memoir.” He admits that the book “evolved” into something “more autobiographical” than he originally intended, but says it focuses on the music. Joe explains that he’s read a number of autobiographies over the past 18 months, and from some he “learned a lot,” in others the author shared “way too much” and some were “a waste” of his time. He says he’s hoping his book “gives the fans some useful information.”
