So far, the 50th anniversary of the Rolling Stones hasn’t amounted to much — unless you count Ron Wood talking out of school about recording sessions and the rumored return of Bill Wyman to the band.

A year ago, Slash was in Texas rocking out with pop stars the Black Eyed Peas and Usher as part of the Super Bowl XLV halftime show.

This past weekend, he was a good 2,000-plus miles away from Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis — and for good reason. The former Guns N’ Roses guitarist was in Los Angeles wrapping up his second solo studio album, which is slated for a May 22 release on Slash’s own Dik Hayd International imprint.
