Slash has started work on his second solo album.

Previously he had detailed his journey back to the US, writing: "Left Serbia 8am, just arrived in LA, 10:30pm. Delays, broken toilets, u name it. Gotta love Delta." Two days previously, he tweeted plans to start on the new album, saying: "We've put together some killer material for new record. Will keep u posted! ii|; ) (sic)."
The former Guns 'N' Roses guitarist had an all star cast of singers on his 2010 debut - including Ozzy Osbourne, Fergie, Iggy Pop and Adam Levigne - but confirmed this time he will work with his live vocalist Myles Kennedy on all the tracks. He previously said: "Myles and I have been writing all throughout the tour so we've got a lot of material, we're starting pre-production in June and then do the tour in July. "In September we're going to do more pre-production and the album is slated to come out in March or April."
It is not currently known if Slash has hired a producer for the record, or where he is planning to record it.
