A week ago, rock journalist Mitch Lafon has revealed an exciting rumor that Guns N’ Roses will be recording a cover song for T-Rex’s tribute album “Children of the Revolution.”
Today, Hal Wilner, producer of the upcoming T-Rex tribute, has shared a statement via Mitch Lafon and clarifed the all rumors. Here’s the statement:
“Just wanted to clear up a rumor you wrote about regarding Guns N’ Roses recording “Children of the Revolution“ for BMG and my Bolan project.
They are NOT on the record. In fact “Children of the Revolution“ is done by Kesha with a live orchestra that features Wayne KRAMER and LA’s Jack Shit band that has members of Elvis C and Jackson B’s bands .
There is a rumor that Axl Rose recorded that song for a different Bolan project without Guns N’ Roses but again it is not ours. Our project is done and BMG is putting it out in March or April. It is called “Angelheaded Hipster – Another Look at Marc Bolan”. The title comes from Allen Ginsberg “Howl” poem.
Some of the featured artists are Marc Almond, Nick Cave, Perry Farrell , Foo Fighters , Emily Haines , Joan Jett, Father John Misty, Todd Rundgren , Peaches , Bjorns , Nena and more – 27 tracks over 2 CDs , vinyl and all the other ways …. so just wanted to give you the real info ….”
Apparently, rumors aren’t real. Check the Facebook post from below.
