SLASH LOVES AIRBOURNE!

Posted on July 29, 2010

Having just shared the bill on quite a few European summer festivals earlier this season, famed rock guitar god Slash has namechecked Aussie rockers AIRBOURNE in various interviews of late. Most famously citing that, “those guys are phenomenal. As far as new rock and roll bands are concerned right now, there haven’t been a lot of insanely great acts for some time. It’s hard to say who else I’d pick but Airbourne rock!

Airbourne frontman Joel O’Keeffe comments on their legendary endorsement of sorts, saying, “Slash is Rock’n’Roll and Soulful at the same time, he is a phenomenal guitarist that will be remembered forever. His showmanship, musicianship, guitar tone and trade mark riffs and licks have influenced countless guitarists worldwide. We are honored and stoked that he tips his top hat towards us. Slash Rock’n’Fk’n’Roll forever!

And as if that wasn’t enough, Alice Cooper has also brought up whiskey-rockers Airbourne in a recent interview. Says Cooper, “I really like garage bands… I like bands that sound like drunk bar bands. I just saw this video of Airbourne the other night (“Blonde, Bad & Beautiful”) and I went ‘ok, that looks like fun’.
