Nashville (dpa) – Traditional guitar maker Gibson has founded his own music label and signed rock legend Slash (56) as lead artist. A Slash album with Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators will be released in cooperation with BMG, he said.

“It is an honor to be Gibson Records ‘first release,” guitarist for American rocker Guns N’ Roses said, according to a statement on Tuesday. “This is definitely a highlight of our partnership – and after working so closely with Gibson for so long, I know this will be a label that will truly support its artists in a creative way.” The exact release date of the album was initially not known.
