Hits At All” compilations #8 and #9. Hear NICK OLIVERI and Slash fire on all cylinders with “Chains and Shackles”!
About the song “Chains And Shackles”, he says: “The first single is an outtake track from Slash’s 2010 self-titled album. Slash wrote the music and Eric Valentine and myself wrote the words. I feel the song is hard-driving and it has the right amount of uncensored dirt, filth, sex, drugs and rock’n’roll to be called a SLASH song! Until now, this track has only been available for those who happen to stumble upon it online… But 13 years later, it is available through the good people at HPS Records! Produced by the one and only Eric Valentine (producer for The Dwarves, Queens of the Stone Age). If you haven’t picked up on it yet, it gives me a great sense of pride to have worked with these guys and to tell you about! So PLAY THE TRACK AND TURN IT UP!“
