Slash – Live: Made In Stoke (Armoury / Universal Music Canada)

The first live set from Guns N Roses / Velvet Revolver guitarist Slash is a two CD / one DVD set that captures the legendary guitarist and his band at their best. Vocalist Myles Kennedy (from the unfortunate Creed-offshoot band Alter Bridge) does an admirable job handling the GNR material here, of which there is plenty. No less than 7 Guns N Roses songs appear here and naturally, are given the biggest reactions and generate numerous sing-alongs from the crowd. Truth is though, Slash’s solo material like Mean Bone and Ghost stand up reasonably well when back to back with GNR classics like Nightrain, Sweet Child O’ Mine and Rocket Queen.
