SLASH–the iconic, Grammy-winning rock guitarist and songwriter–made a surprise guest appearance today (Sunday, February 6)
at Super Bowl XLV, the biggest sporting event on the planet. SLASH performed “Sweet Child O’ Mine,” with Fergie of the
Black Eyed Peas on lead vocals, at the Super Bowl XLV halftime show.

“There’s is nothing cooler than performing at the Super Bowl. It’s been a terrific experience to say the least!” said
SLASH.

The 2010 Super Bowl was watched by more than 106 million people, becoming the most-watched
program in U.S. television history
(Nielsen Co.).

SLASH released his debut solo album in 2010, the acclaimed SLASH, which bowed on the Billboard
Top 200 chart at #3
(#1 on the Rock chart, #1 on the Independent chart, and #1 on the Hard Music chart). Digitally, the album also became the #1 overall digital album and
hit #1 on iTunes in 13 countries. The 14-song disc features collaborations with vocalists Ozzy Osbourne, Iggy Pop, Ian Astbury, Lemmy Kilmister, Chris Cornell, Rocco DeLuca, Dave Grohl, Myles
Kennedy, Kid Rock, Adam Levine of Maroon 5, Duff McKagan, M. Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold,
and Andrew Stockdale of Wolfmother.


THE WHITE STRIPES ARE DONE!?

According to sources, The White Stripes have announced they are done, and will not be making any new recordings or performing live anymore. There are no hard feelings between the brother and sister
duo, no citing of creative differences, no issues of ill will nor ill heath to point the blame.

Apparently the blame lies at the top of numerous reasons, that being the sustain of what is pulchritudinous and extraordinary about what musical art they
have created.

“Third Man Records will continue to put out unreleased live and studio recordings from The White Stripes in their Vault Subscription record club, as well as through regular channels.” —
Thirdmanrecords.com

“The White Stripes do not belong to Meg and Jack anymore. The White Stripes belong to you now and you can do with it whatever you want. The beauty of art and music is that it can last forever if
people want it to. Thank you for sharing this experience. Your involvement will never be lost on us and we are truly grateful.”

Sincerely,
Meg and Jack White
The White Stripes”
