It has been revealed that Guns and Roses guitarist, Slash, has recently discovered a song that he had recorded and features lead vocals from the late Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington. But for it to be released, Slash has said that Chester’s family will be the judge of that.
The song was originally written and recorded for Slash’s solo album. The album featured a host of all-star names, and the track that Chester recorded “Captain Alibi” did make the album, but the final recording had vocals from late Motorhead singer Lemmy Kilmister.
Slash told Varity :“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.”
When asked about plans to eventually release the song, Slash said: “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.”
