Slash and his solo band, Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, have shared a new music video for the song “Mind Your Manners.” The clip was edited together from live footage shot by fans during the group's performance at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles. The footage was submitted via an app called Cinebody, then assembled by director and editor Clifton Collins to create the final “Mind Your Manners” clip.
Slash remarked, “It was great to involve the fans to make this video. They did an awesome job! Having Clifton shoot as well as edit it all together was just perfect.”
“Mind Your Manners” is taken from Slash's latest album, Living The Dream, which was released in September. He said it was the first song that the band began working on when it started pre-production for the LP back in February.
Slash told us how the songwriting usually starts with the Conspirators: “A lot of the writing happens when we're on the road, and so what I'll do is I'll come up with an idea in a dressing room or in a hotel room or sometimes even on the bus. You know, I'll tape it on my phone and I'll bring it to soundcheck if we have time, and I'll start jamming it with Todd (Kerns, bass), Brent (Fitz, drums) and Frank (Sidoris, guitar). And then Myles will start recording some vocal melodies and we'll get, you know, the idea together. And then whenever we get a sizable break, you know, a couple of weeks or something, we'll go into a rehearsal room and start fleshing out some of those ideas and getting arrangements together.”
Slash and the Conspirators have been touring behind Living The Dream, but on a break right now as the legendary guitarist heads out this month with Guns N' Roses to Malaysia, Taiwan, China, the United Arab Emirates, South Africa and one final show in Hawaii.
