Slash has composed an original score for Clowns 3D, a new maze that will be featured as part of Universal Studios Hollywood's annual "Halloween Horror Nights" attraction. The maze and score will premiere on September 19th and run through the Halloween season. Slash said, "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 . . . (I) 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.”
Slash told us he's always been a fan of monsters of all kinds: "Oh, you know, all the monster movies, Creature From The Black Lagoon, The Fly, and then went on to, you know, Alien was a favorite, we talk about The Thing all the time -- I mean, all the way up until, you know, after you had Mike Myers and Freddy Krueger and Jason. Then everything started to get very diluted. But up until then I was pretty much drawn to any monster that looked scary."
- Universal Studios has previously partnered with Black Sabbath, Rob Zombie and Alice Cooper on past "Halloween Horror Nights" attractions, although this is the first time that an artist has created an original score for one.
- The maze will be based around the concept of coulrophobia, a disturbing condition affecting those with an extreme and irrational fear of clowns.
- Slash is also a horror film producer, with his Slasher Films producing last year's Nothing Left To Fearand having several other films in development.
- Slash is currently on the road with Aerosmith and is scheduled to perform on Tuesday (August 19th) in Denver. The tour resumed over the weekend after two shows were canceled due to Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer falling ill.
- Slash's third album with his band Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, called World On Fire, arrives on September 16th.
