Reclusive Guns N' Roses
rocker Axl Rose
amazed his friend Sebastian Bach
when he agreed to sing on two songs for the ex-Skid Row
star's upcoming solo album. Perfectionist Rose is still working on the long-overdue Guns N' Roses album Chinese Democracy
, the band's first disc of original material in 14 years.
So when Rose agreed to sing backing vocals on two tracks, including upcoming single (Love Is) A Bitchslap
, for Bach's solo album Angel Down
, his friend was stunned.
Bach says, "Basically, the collaboration with me and Axl started when he asked me last December. I was at his house and he was playing me the new Chinese Democracy
album - actually, there's more than one; there's, like, four - but he was playing a song called Sorry
. And I started singing a high harmony on the chorus of this song and he flipped out, and he goes, 'That sounds great. I want you to sing that on the record.' So in January, I sang the chorus of this song Sorry
, and it came out really, really amazing. So now that I'm finishing my record, just for the fun of it, when I got to LA, I just texted Axl, 'Hey, dude, when are you gonna come and sing on my record?' I was just joking. I didn't think he would do that. And his response was, 'When? Where? What time? Where is the studio? What time do you want me there?' I was, like, 'You've gotta be f---ing kidding me.' He sings two songs on the record."
