In a recent interview with Seznamz Pravy from Czech Republic, Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash shared a story about how he was nearly collabrate with late singers, Chester Bennington and Chris Cornell.
According to Alternative Nation, Slash said:
“When I get back to it, it was fun, but it was also a big challenge. I am confronted with complex logistics and the fact that I barely knew what it would mean to finally put the record together. I did not involve any publishers or teams of managers in the process.We recorded the record and then we solved the formalities.
Among his guests, Ozzy Osbourne, Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead, Iggy Pop, and Chester Bennington from Linkin Park recorded for his eponymous debut.”
“He did not get on the record, but we got it recorded. Unfortunately, we could not release it because it did not allow band management. He wrote a really beautiful piece that detailed the state of his mind at that time.
I had no idea what was going on in his head and what he was suffering. Just recently, somebody reminded me that Chester had a recording demo. I also like to recall Chris Cornel, because it was the most intense collaboration we’ve ever had before to leave us.”
