PRB Media are very honoured to present these exciting blogs & information from legendary music manager, Ms Vicky Hamilton, with the second in the series of blogs featuring Slash (Guns N’ Roses) “It’s been an interesting road from the mid 90s up until now,” says Slash. “I never stopped to think, ‘What am I gonna to do in the long term?’ Or ruminated on my solo career, where it was heading. I’ve just been jamming around, going wherever the muse has taken me. And this is the first time where I feel like I’m in the saddle and riding my own destiny with some genuine focus.”
 
Long time Grammy Award-Winning music industry executive and personal manager, featured in VH-1s Behind the Music, Driven and the Biography Channel’s on Guns ‘N’ Roses, Brett Michaels, and Mötley Crüe and the BBC series Born To Be Wild, The Golden Age Of American Rock.
 
Considered one of the most successful music executives in the industry, Vicky has discovered, developed or managed the careers of Guns N Roses, Motley Crue, Poison, Faster Pussycat and many others. In 1988, David Geffen hired her as A&R executive at Geffen Records, where she stayed until 1992. She has also worked with famed manager Elliot Roberts at Lookout Management/ Vapor Records, before moving to Capitol Records as A&R consultant with longtime friend Gary Gersh.
 
At the House of Blues after watching Johnny Cash perform, Rick Rubin (Def Jam, American, Columbia Records) suggested she make a record with June Carter Cash. Hamilton shopped June’s demos around to all the major labels but there was a reluctance to sign this country legend. 
This is when Vicky started her own label Small Hairy Dog and gave June a label 
to call home. Her CD, Press On was released in 1999 and earned a Grammy Award in 2000.
 
As Hamilton later stated, “I didn’t plan on starting a record company, I just knew that June’s music needed to be heard.”Currently, Vicky owns and operates Aesthetic V management and productions, which represents and develops bands, artist and special projects.  Enjoy the second blog in the series with Slash….next blog will be Vicky Hamilton interviewing Trash McSweeney… For more information see the links below..
