Following the release of his second solo album 'Apocalyptic Love', legendary guitarist Slash has praised Adele for her song writing ability that has seen the 24 year old selling over 6 million albums.
Speaking to The Independent, Slash said that Adele is "a shot in the arm for this industry." He was full of praise admitting "she's great" adding "she writes her own music that's not at all contrived."
Slash was critical of other music claiming "everybody else is so synthetic" but artists like Adele and the late Amy Winehouse are "organic and real" and it was "great to have that happen at this moment."
The former Velvet Revolver man also spoke about his time in Guns 'n' Roses; "I still look back on it being the ultimate pre-adult, post-adolescent experience." Slash left the band in 1996 after a fallout with Axl Rose but said "I'm a pretty durable survivor and I'm fortunate to be here anyway. But I think if I'd kept trying to negotiate that existence, I wouldn't be here."
