Tak Matsumoto and Slash on the cover of the February issue of「Young Guitar」

I finally got around to posting about the Tak and Slash interview published in the 「Young Guitar」 magazine today! But let's make one thing clear first: They did not announce a collaboration or something along those lines. But perhaps we will see one in the future, who knows? The article starts by explaining that Tak and Slash have a lot in common: They have their own Gibson Signature Models, they have won a Grammy Award, they both released a number of no.1 albums, ... So it was about time that the two sat down for a proper talk. As it turns out, they have even more in common!

Find out more after the break!
