When after Robert Plant's cancellation of a permanent Led Zeppelin reunion Page, Jones and Bonham Junior looked around for another frontman, Myles Kennedy was invited among others and it took a lot of persuasiveness from his environment to stop Jimmy Page from continuing with Kennedy as Led Zeppelin frontman. Afterwards Page always emphasized that he had hardly any doubt in his singing that Myles was the right one, only he didn't want to expect the big expectations from himself and him. That's why the Alter Bridge frontman ended up with the Guns-N'-Roses icon Slash. "World Of Art" is the second complete work the two of them have put together. It shows that they are slowly picking up speed. The guitarist shakes the riffs in all his coolness from his hips and Myles, who is considered by many to be the best current hard rock shouter, picks up the thread, and so great tracks like "Dirty Girl" or "Too Far Gone" emerge. Unlike his former colleague Axl W. Rose, Slash is not only more productive, but also better and more authentic.
