This is a collab we can’t wait to listen to
Slash reveals in a new interview with Variety that a solo track he recorded originally featured the late Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington and says previously unheard demo could be released in the future. The track Slash recently rediscovered was supposed to be part of Slash’s first solo album but he ended up recording the song with the late Motörhead singer Lemmy Kilmister instead.
“When I was doing my first solo record, I worked with a lot of different people, some of whom, for whatever reason, didn’t end up on the record. One was with Chester. We did a song and LINKIN PARK at the time didn’t allow it to happen, so I did it with Lemmy. The guy who engineered my demos sent it to me and I sent it to Chester’s family.”
The song, titled “Captain Alibi”, could be released at some point, he says. Slash adds,
“His family has got it, so it would be totally up to them. It was really good. He was awesome. It would be fine with me if they wanted to [release] it. Musically it’s basically the same as the Lemmy song, but the lyrics are really poignant.”
Slash’s fourth solo studio album “Living The Dream” is to be released on September 21 of this year. This will be the third album he’s recorded with his band The Conspirators.
