Slash was on Fox News 411 last night discussing his new hit album, Apocalyptic Love, which is No. 4 on the Billboard 200 album chart this week. Slash told Pulse of Radio that fans embrace the new material along with the classics.

"I'd say probably about 50 percent of my set makes up of new material and the other 50 percent is old stuff, and so they take the new stuff with the old stuff pretty well —fortunately, you know," said Slash.

"The new stuff is as inspired as any material I've ever done, so I just go out and do it, and I think probably 'cause I have the balls to just go out and do it and not care, people sort of go, 'Oh, okay.'"

Slash will be back in the U.S. for a North American tour July 12.
