Slash, Myles Kennedy, And Two Of Their Conspirators Bandmates Contracted COVID-19 During The Making Of Their New Album

Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators will be releasing their new album “4” on February 11 and Slash recently discussed the effort with Radio Regenbogen. In the same chat, the guitarist also revealed that him, Myles Kennedy, and two other members of the band all caught COVID-19 while working on the record.

Slash said the following about the COVID-19 cases:

“The funniest story about this record was the COVID story, because we took a tour bus to Nashville to keep ourselves safe — to get there and not travel commercially. And then we went and recorded the whole record, and then I got a phone call from Myles in the studio when I was about to do overdubs, and he goes, ‘Man, I tested positive.’ And subsequently, two of the other guys tested positive, so they all had to go into quarantine. And we still had to do percussion and background vocals, and so we sort of stalled. So we mixed what we had, which was a lot. And then we recorded the background vocals in the guest house of the house that we were all quarantined in. And then those guys got better. I tested positive finally. And so I had to quarantine. But I just got vaccinated, so I only had to quarantine for a few days. And so I came out, and then we did the percussion and mixed [the rest of] the record and drove home. So that was the funny experience about this particular record, was everybody having to navigate the whole COVID experience.”
