The former Guns N' Roses' guitarist has shared his plan for reviving the band's tracks for his solo tour by having the Alter Bridge's frontman covers Axl Rose's original vocals.
Former Guns N' Roses' guitarist Slash is revamping hits for his planned solo tour - because he trusts singer Myles Kennedy to cover Axl Rose's original vocals. The top hat-toting rocker famously fell out with Rose and quit the band in the mid-1990s, and over a decade later, the pair has yet to patch up their friendship.
Alter Bridge's frontman Kennedy has signed up for the guitarist's upcoming solo tour in summer, and Slash is keen to resurrect the hits from his Guns N' Roses days. Slash tells the Los Angeles Times, "More than anything, it's because Myles is such a capable singer."
He continues, "He knows those songs, and he sings them great. A lot of those songs are in a register that most people can't sing, and Myles can, and he can do it from the heart. That's the real reason for unwrapping certain material that I haven't played with anybody else."
