“Living The Dream” is Slash‘s fourth solo album, and third with Slash and his bandmates Myles Kennedy (vocals), Brent Fitz (drums), Todd Kerns (bass and vocals) and Frank Sidoris (guitar and vocals).
Slash describes creating the enjoyable clip: “The concept behind doing an animated video for ‘Driving Rain’ is usually because of the darkish material of the music influencing administrators to give you very dramatic, darkish and sullen common reside motion therapies that weren’t any enjoyable in any respect (no offense to these guys). So, I wished to create one thing that could possibly be tongue-in-cheek and but nonetheless be darkish with live-action animation. We’re all huge followers of Stoopid Buddy and so they got here up with an incredible idea and therapy. We love the video and it got here out effin’ sensible. FYI, no puppets had been harmed through the making of this video.”
“Our complete group at Stoopid Buddy Stoodios was past excited to work with Slash, Myles and people arduous rocking CONSPIRATORS,” explains John Harvatine IV, inventive director and co-founder. “We had a blast making a dramatic heart-pounding music video with rag-doll-like rod puppets and adrenaline-filled RC Jeeps. From this second ahead, ‘Driving Rain’ is now the ‘Citizen Kane’ of music movies!”
Slash described the creation of “Driving Rain”: “This is a riff I particularly keep in mind taking part in with the blokes for the primary time at a venue in New Hampshire on the ‘World On Fire’ tour. It’s a cool guitar half we ran although, and from that time ahead the remainder of the music began to come back collectively in my thoughts whereas on the street. We put all of it collectively this 12 months and Myles got here up with an incredible melody for it.” Myles Kennedy provides: “The riff may be very paying homage to classic AEROSMITH. It’s acquired a sure funk to it that is compelling. Lyrically, it is a story about anyone who works on the street — it could possibly be a musician, and it could possibly be a touring salesman. What makes it fascinating is that this man has an addict girlfriend or partner who continues to relapse, and he or she finally ends up getting him to come back house. She’s depressing and falls again into unhealthy outdated habits, and that compels him to go again to her to save lots of the day.”
Myles added: “It’s one other concept that had been round for years. To me, the riff may be very paying homage to classic AEROSMITH. It’s acquired a sure funk to it that’s actually compelling.”
