    Myles Kennedy

    Myles Kennedy's second solo album "The Ides of March" is coming out on May 14th. It turned into a Corona album to some extent - exploring the idea of being human in the times we live in and how to navigate through them, exploring the emotions we all are going through and how our expectations and normality are being turned upside down. In our exclusive interview with Grandmaster Myles we talked about all that - and also about becoming cat parents, being home for that long in a row and how to cope (because that usually doesn't happen as an every busy rockstar), about being productive and about looking forward - on future projects as well as on new material with Alter Bridge and Slash. Enjoy!
