“Driving Rain” opens with a quintessential, unrelenting Slash riff. He peppered the hard rocker with jagged licks and solos, while Kennedy wailed, “I can’t see the road through the driving rain/ But I won’t stop now/ Her love is calling me home, seems to guide the way/ So I won’t stop now.”
Slash, Kennedy and the Conspirators also performed the bluesy ripper, “Mind Your Manners.”
“Driving Rain” and “Mind Your Manners” will appear on Slash’s upcoming album with Kennedy and the Conspirators, Living the Dream, which arrives September 21st. The album marks their first together since 2014’s World on Fire.
Slash featuring Miles Kennedy and the Conspirators will embark on a North American tour tonight, September 13th, at the famed Whisky A Go Go in Los Angeles, California. The trek wraps October 14th at the Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, California.
