SLASH Jams With BLACK EYED PEAS In Hollywood; Photos Available

According to MTV.com, VELVET REVOLVER/ex-GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Slash jammed with the BLACK EYED PEAS on "Let's Get It Started" at Avalon in Hollywood, California on Thursday (Feb. 8). The BLACK EYED PEAS threw a benefit concert for their Peapod Foundation, which helps underprivileged children around the world. This year's effort raised funds for the band's Peapod Music and Arts Academy, an educational center that will serve foster children in inner-city L.A. Other guests included Wyclef Jean and John Legend. Check out pictures from Wire Image.

In other news, Slash recently met up with Grammy-nominated CCM rocker Sarah Kelly at his Hollywood's RockWalk induction ceremony, also attended by producer Mike Clink. It proved to be a reunion of sorts for Kelly, who recruited Clink to oversee her Grammy-nominated sophomore release — "Where The Past Meets Today". Clink, in turn, introduced Slash to Kelly's music — and he immediately jumped onboard to record two amazing guitar solos on the project, including "Still Breathing" and "Out Of Reach". Slash comments: "I was blown away by how much emotion and balls her voice had and how expressive it was… She has a sincerely pure presence in her voice."
