Electric guitar legend Slash has unveiled the details of his new solo album – which contains cameos from some of music's biggest names.

Appearing on the eponymously-named album are the likes of Dave Grohl, Ozzy Osbourne, Iggy Pop and Chris Cornell.

His rhythm section is equally impressive – on bass guitar playing duties is Chris Chaney from Jane's Addiction and the man behind the drum kit is Josh Freese from Nine Inch Nails.

Talking about the making of the record, which is set to be released on May 10th 2010, Slash said: "These are all artists I wanted to work with – that I thought it would be amazing to do something creative and collaborative."

The electric guitar legend added: "We had a lot of fun making these songs."

Last year, Slash, who shot to fame in Guns N' Roses, was named as the second best electric guitar player ever by Time magazine – only pipped to the top spot by Jimi Hendrix.
