Legendary guitarist Slash is currently completing the Australian leg of his Apocalyptic Love World Tour with vocalist Myles Kennedy and backing band The Conspirators, which kicked off with a show at the Brisbane River Stage last night (August 23rd). Wolfmother frontman Andrew Stockdale appeared at the show, performing lead vocals on the song ‘By the Sword’, on which he was featured for Slash’s self-titled debut album in 2010.
Tweeting shortly after the show, now-constant frontman Myles Kennedy declared that “Andrew Stockdale killed it tonight in Brisbane. Super talented cat. It’s always a pleasure to hear him sing with the band.”
Stockdale has previously performed the song live with Slash and co. a number of times, in April 2010 in Melbourne and in Brisbane in March last year, as well as on a number of TV appearances. The singer is currently in Australia with Wolfmother, recording the band’s third studio album.

After leaving Wolfmother in August 2008, former members Chris Ross (bass, keyboards) and Myles Heskett (drums) have tried their luck in a number of musical projects, including Doom Buggy and Palace of Fire, and have now returned with their latest group, Good Heavens.
With Sarah Kelly at the helm on vocals and guitar, Good Heavens released their debut single on July 17th through Australian independent label Rice Is Nice Records. ‘It’s Not Easy Being Mean‘ is taken from the group’s upcoming debut album Strange Dreams, which will be released on August 17th, and showcases the trio’s mid-paced, grungy sound featuring Kelly’s powerful vocals on top of the experienced rhythm section of Ross and Heskett.
Good Heavens’ official biography can be read on the group’s page on the Rice Is Nice website, here, and the band can also be found on Facebook and Twitter. As usual, be sure to discuss this story on our forums, and stick with Wolfmother.net for more news and updates!
