Slash Teams With Universal Studios Hollywood To Create ‘Creepy Clown Maze’
Slash has composed the score for a frightful new Universal Studios Hollywood maze. 'Clowns 3D, with Music by Slash,' set to premiere as part of the park's 'Halloween Horror Nights' on September 19, will feature the former Guns N' Roses guitarist's recognizable guitar riffs, while specifically targeting those suffering from coulrophobia -- a psychological condition affecting people with an extreme and irrational fear of clowns.
“I’m a huge fan of ‘Halloween Horror Nights’ and was inspired to partner with Universal Studios Hollywood because they are the founders of creating extreme horror,” Slash says. “I’ve been composing music for as long as I can remember, and jumped at the chance to be an integral part of this year’s event and create the original score for this creepy clown maze. I can’t wait to see the fans’ reactions and will be first in line to experience the maze myself.”
'Clowns 3D' isn't the first time Slash has indulged his love of horror. May brought news that he is producing a remake of the 1972 film 'Cut Throats Nine.' Slash also had a hand last year in composing the score to the film 'Nothing Left To Fear.'
This Universal Studios Hollywood project caps a busy summer for Slash, who is currently part of the 'Let Rock Rule' tour with Aerosmith. Those dates ground to a halt earlier this week when Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer fell ill, nixing a show in Concord, California. Early reports had this Saturday's stop in George, Washington, canceled, as well, but Aerosmith's official website still has the concert listed as a part of their itinerary.
Slash has also set a mid-September release date for 'World On Fire,' his newest project featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators.
