In a brand new interview with CNN Indonesia, slash he was asked what advice he would give to young musicians starting out. He replied (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “The music industry has changed so much since I got into it. It’s hard to give anyone real advice because I’m still trying to learn how to navigate this new genre. But I think the most important thing is to stick to the music you really love – don’t let anyone try to tell you otherwise – and then try to figure out how you can connect with an audience and the best way to make it happen and do what you need to do and be willing to work really, really hard and sacrifice everything to do what you love to do.”
