He also joined Ozzie Osbourne on the Scream tour (Read the Technorati Scream Tour Review).

On April 14th Slash will be joined by the other original members of Guns N' Roses for a live performance during their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (Full list of 2012 Hall of Fame Inductees). With several successful projects under his belt, including Velvet Revolver, Slash's Snakepit and his widely acclaimed debut release, Slash recently released the album cover art for his forth-coming follow-up release, Apocalyptic Love.

Apocalyptic Love, which will feature Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators, is set to hit the streets on May 22, 2012. The band will be hitting the tour circuit as well as several major music festivals in support of the new album.
