Brent Fitz – Slash, ex- Union, Alice Cooper, Vince Neil etc.

August 26th, 2015




Brent Fitz is a Canadian musician, multi-instrumentalist and the drummer of ex-Guns’ N Roses guitarist Slash’s solo band. Previously, he has played with Alice Cooper, Vince Neil and Econoline Crush among others. At the end of the 1990s he had a band called Union with Bruce Kulick (ex -KISS) and John Corabi (ex -Motley Crue). But nowadays Fitz plays with Slash’s solo band where he joined in 2010. The band’s current line-up has recorded two studio albums, the latest WORLD ON FIRE was released in 2014. I met a good-humored Fitz last June in Sweden Rock Festival. We discussed Fitz’s own Guns’n Roses/Slash’s history, about how he ended up in the band, and what the future might bring. We also talked about his time in the Union and what all it takes to be able to end up in a position where he currently is. Read on!

Legendary guitar hero Slash appeared in Finland for the second time as a solo artist, this time in Hartwall Arena in Helsinki.

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



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.
