Congrats to Slash, who will receive the inaugural ‘Guitar Legend Award’ honor at the first annual Alternative Press Music Awards. The honor is being presented by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and will be one of the highlights of the ceremony, which is taking place at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum at North Coast Harbor in Cleveland on July 21.

The timing is perfect for Slash, who is just about to hit the road in support of his upcoming studio album, ‘World on Fire.’ Slash recently checked in from the band’s rehearsal space with a pair of updates suggesting that the rehearsals were coming to an end and he was ready to rock out with Aerosmith on the “Let Rock Rule” tour this summer.

The first photo comes from a recent session in late June where Myles Kennedy took a breather and Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins dropped by to hang out. Hawkins reportedly stepped up to the mic to lead Slash and The Conspirators on a rendition of ‘Nighttrain’ during rehearsals. Check out the photo below.
