    In this exclusive interview, Slash shares his favorite movies with ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino. The iconic Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver guitarist happens to be a big Martin Scorsese fan, and he can't wait to see Shutter Island! He also dives deep into making of his solo album for us, and he explains how he's crafting "the darker side of American Idol" with his Guitar Center contest in an effort to find something that's, of course, "fucking fantastic."

    If you want Slash to be behind the board on your album, enter the Guitar Center contest, but be sure to check out his solo album first due out April 6, 2010. With everyone from Ozzy Osbourne and Iggy Pop to Avenged Sevenfold's M. Shadows and Fergie making guest appearances, it's one of the best rock records of 2010, and it showcases some of Slash's most incendiary and explosive playing since Appetite for Destruction

    So what movie would Slash's solo album be? Watch the video here below to find out…
