Legendary guitar hero Slash appeared in Finland for the second time as a solo artist, this time in Hartwall Arena in Helsinki. Slash released his second solo album LOVE APOCALYPTIC LOVE last May and it also features Slash’s longtime touring band members: vocalist Myles Kennedy, drummer Brent Fitz and bassist Todd Kerns. The new album has not only been a sales success, but critics have also generously praised the disc. The success of this album and ongoing tour has proved that ex Guns’n Roses guitarist is doing great on his own without the burdens of the past.
Eric Dover is an American vocalist and guitarist, most notably working with Alice Cooper, Slash’s Snakepit and Jellyfish. Dover joined Jellyfish in 1993 but the band disbanded just one year and he then formed a new band called Doverman with Roger Manning. In 1995 Dover joined Slash’s short lived Slash’s Snakepit and recorded album IT’S FIVE O CLOCK SOMEWHERE with the band. Manning and Dover re-grouped in late 1995 and formed another band called Imperial Drag. The band released its self-titled debut in 1996 but broke up one year later. In late 90’s he did join Alice Cooper’s band. Dover stayed altogether over four years in the band and recorded album THE EYES OF ALICE COOPER in 2003. After quitting with Cooper, Dover has been working on various studio sessions, project bands like Starfuckers and his own band Sextus which has released two albums to date. However, it was band Lost Angels which finally bring the man back in Finland, for the first time since 2004. The band is a kind of all-star band featuring past and current members of Cinderella, White Lion and of course Alice Cooper. The band landed in Helsinki on early January and then we had a pleasure to sit down with Eric and discuss about the past, present and future as well.

Ruisrock celebrated its 40th anniversary in sunny Ruissalo. Although the festival lineup included mostly domestic artists, there were lots of interesting foreign names as well such as the legendary Ozzy Osbourne, former Guns’n Roses guitarist Slash, Arch Enemy, and Amon Amarth represented the heavier side while there were also a long list of bands from pop, punk, prog and alternative worlds as well. Such names as: Billy Talent, Canned Heat, NOFX, Flogging Molly and the Sounds show clearly how versatile the festival Ruisrock is and that mix seems to work out well. Altogether there were over 70,000 visitors in Ruisrock during three days.
