Slash returned to The Warfield with Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators once again for a monstrous Sunday night show. It may have been a Sunday, but you couldn’t tell by looking around at the packed house and energy in the crowd. Starting off the night was RavenEye, an epic three-piece band from the UK, hand-picked by Slash to come on his U.S. tour in support. This trio was insanely great and was one hell of a start to the night. I am sure we will seeing more of these guys in the U.S. soon.

Slash and Kennedy have been playing together for a while now and have released some great music. When they come to town, they bring a perfect mix of new and old. From Guns N’ Roses to Velvet Revolver songs, they continue to rock the socks off of people. Slash is showing not one sign of slowing down, and Kennedy still belts out the vocals with powerful precision. I am more certain after this show and the crowd’s energy that this kind of rock is so very much alive and kicking.

While I, like many, still hope to fulfill a childhood dream of seeing Guns N’ Roses live with Slash and Axl on stage together, this group has carried the torch for now and constantly refuels my love for rock ‘n’ roll.

Seymour Duncan 3rd Annual Notes For Notes Benefit
Lobero Theatre — Santa Barbara, CA
December 6th, 2013

Notes For Notes is a Santa Barbara-based charity that provides youngsters with FREE access to music instruments, instruction, and recording studio environments so that music may become a profoundly positive influence in their lives.

The organization hosted a stacked Benefit Show December 6th that featured Jimmy Vivino & the Basic Cable Band (Conan O’Brien’s house band), Seymour Duncan, Slash, Robert Randolph, Alan Parsons, Don Felder & more.

Chimaway Lopez, Notes for Notes’ first Hall of Fame inductee who is now 15 years old, stepped it up while sharing the stage-seasoned professionals. All the musicians sign a guitar and held a ‘live’ auction during the show — and the guitar sold for $8000.00.
