Slash: Releases "Gotten" Video And Song To Raise Awareness For Homeless Youth; Star-Studded Video And Behind The Scenes Footage Posted
is releasing a special video and song to raise awareness for the
plight of homeless youth in Los Angeles. Fans can make a donation to
the Los Angeles Youth Network (LAYN) by downloading the song - a
special mix of "Gotten", with Adam Levine of Maroon 5 on vocals, from
Slash's previous 2010 debut solo album. A comprehensive
nonprofit organization, LAYN provides for more than 10,000 runaway
and homeless youth on the streets of Los Angeles every night, with
emergency shelter and group homes for those 12-17 years old and long
term transitional housing for young adults 18-24. The goal is to keep
these often neglected, abused and homeless youth off the street and
provide them with the basic necessities of life such as safety, food,
shelter, counseling and supportive services. To watch,

in downtown LA, the star-studded cast for 'Gotten' features Slash as
himself, as well as Amanda “AJ” Milchalka (Hellcats, Super 8),
Kristin Bauer (True Blood), Clifton Collins Jr. (Traffic, Capote),
Jacob Vargas (Next Friday, Traffic), Sevier Crespo (Fast Lane) and
Judd Nelson (The Breakfast Club), among others. “This
video was created to make people take notice of the homeless teen
epidemic which is rampant in L.A. as well as in the rest of the
country,” explains Slash. “The story in this video is just one
scenario amid millions of potential situations happening at any given
time in Los Angeles alone. Everybody involved with the making of this
video selflessly donated their time and talents to this cause. I
thank them with all my heart.” "LAYN is extremely
grateful to Slash, Astound Studios, GenAudio and the entire creative
force that has come together to support the programs and services of
LAYN for homeless and runaway youth often missed by so many systems
and who have such limited options for support,” explains Mark
Supper Executive Director of the Los Angeles Youth Network. “Your
donation helps us prevent the potential harm these youth are
vulnerable and at risk for, and assists us in keeping them from being
exploited or victimized on the streets of Los Angeles."
"Gotten" was remixed at Astound Studios from its original version using
GenAudio’s unique 3D spatial audio technology, AstoundSound, which
is based on over two decades of R&D into how the brain processes
audio information. AstoundSound delivers a deeper and significantly
enhanced artist-fan connection that stimulates a powerful artist-fan
connection triggering a more intensive emotional response.
team at Astound Studios and GenAudio were very excited to work on
this with Slash and his people," said Jerry Mahabub, CEO of
GenAudio and Owner of Astound Studios. "Slash is a visionary, an
idol to many, and a friend to me. It was both an honor and a pleasure
to work on this project for the benefit of homeless youth that need
all of our help."
