ICYMI Gibson Films is off and running with the official premiere of the new full-length music documentary, “The Making Of 4”, streaming worldwide on Gibson TV

“The Making Of 4” takes you deep into recording a live-off-the-floor album with Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators! An album that debuted as the #1 most-selling hard rock album. RCA Studio A in Nashville is of legend. And Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, John Prine, Jason Isbell, Brandi Carlile) captured magic.

As you’d expect, “The Making Of 4” doc has interviews with Slash and his all of his bandmates; Myles Kennedy (vocals),Todd Kerns (bass and vocals),Brent Fitz (drums) and Frank Sidoris (guitar and vocals), producer Dave Cobb, and seven songs performed.

Slash says, “The making of the album ‘4’ was a great experience despite the fact we did it in the throes of Covid. We recorded the album at the iconic RCA Studio A in Nashville with Dave Cobb. This was SMKC all playing live which is the first time I’ve been able to record the band with a live a setup, like in a club. This special room at RCA allowed us to play totally live and out of all of the records we have done as a band, ‘4’ shows how much further we have arrived as a band from where we started. I think people will really appreciate the behind-the-scenes peek at the making of ‘4’.”

Gibson Brands’ director of brand experience, Mark Agensi, added, “For the last three years, Todd Harapiak and I have dreamt about expanding our storytelling into full-length feature films. We want to give music fans around the world a glimpse behind the curtain on the artists and the stories that only Gibson can tell. There are so many stories we plan to tell with Gibson Films, and we are proud to have Slash as the first. The album ‘4’ was our first release on Gibson Records, so it is only fitting that ‘The Making Of 4’ is our first release on Gibson Films…and this is only just the beginning.”

HOW FREAKING COOL IS THIS VIDEO?! How many bands need to do THIS, eh? OMG. Imagine if all of your favourite bands shot content like this and released it as part of the album cycle!
