Video : Slash Jam Session at Red Rock

This is - to me - what Vegas entertainment should be.

On July 5th, Slash, Perry Farrell (Jane's Addiction), Jason Bonham (son of John and current holder of the Zeppelin drum stool), Jerry Cantrell (Alice In Chains) and Royston Langdon (Spacehog - remember them?) got together at Red Rock's pool and jammed for a coupla hours.

Here's Stevie Wonder's "Superstition":

This seemingly random coming together of disparate musicians to invent music 'in the moment' before an 'in the moment' Vegas crowd is truly what Las Vegas is all about. Firing up the jets, without a net and letting the chips fall where they may. Instantly, I'm reminded of 'The Sound of '66' - the gangbuster recording of a late late late show by Sammy Davis Jr. at the Sands (with Buddy Rich). Killer band, playing lush pounding arrangements like a train running off the rails.

Let's hope Red Rock has more of these kinds of events in the future. Awesome.
