As far as accolades go for Rock N Roll music, it doesn’t get much better than having the illustrious legend himself Slash, the Guns & Roses lead guitarist not only spinning a copy of your album all around the USA in his tour van but actually taking the time to let you know he digs your music too; with Slash saying “Great vocals, riffs & groove!”. That is exactly what’s happening right now for Melbourne’s riff rocker Dallas Frasca and their sophomore album “Sound Painter”.
