has apparently drawn a lot of criticism for recruiting Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie to appear on a cover of Guns N' Roses' "Paradise City," because he's been defending her on his Twitter.
The cover also features Cypress Hill and is the B-side to Slash's "Sahara" single. It will be released on the Japanese version of Slash's upcoming Slash & Friends
solo disc, but thankfully will not come out anywhere here. (Please, God. I don't believe in you, but whatever, just don't let this happen.)
If you have no effing clue what I'm talking about, please educate yourself:
(I'm really, really sorry for that, just so you know.)
Let's face it, the original version of "Paradise City" (which really should have been called "Paradise Shitty") was bad enough in itself. But this one is just... I'll let you make that judgment.
Anyway, here's what Slash has been saying to back up Fergie's rock cred on Twitter
"Until now, not too many people have heard Fergie sing Rock & Roll but she sings it better tha [sic] most dudes I know. She's a screamer at heart."
At this point I'm very curious what Axl Rose would have to say about that... but we'll just leave it there.........( Just so you are aware, here is the full list of confirmed guests on Slash & Friends (not including Fergie and Cypress Hill):Collapse )
I'm pretty sure Chris Cornell is a bad, bad idea considering
