HALESTORM singer Lzzy Hale joined Slash (VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES) and his touring band MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS on stage on February 22 at Bandit Rock Awards at Annexet in Stockholm, Sweden to perform the GUNS N' ROSES classic "Out Ta Get Me". Fan-filmed video footage of her appearance can be seen below.
Hale previously sang "Out Ta Get Me" with Slash on June 10, 2012 at Heineken Music Hall in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. She later stated about the experience: "It was so cool. When we started the song, out of habit I went into live rock mode and kind of spaced out for a second and then went into the middle section where we were just kind of riffing with the solo and just kind of lost my mind for a second. I was like, 'What's going on? Slash is right here! He’s sweating on me!' It was so cool; it was the best thing ever."
HALESTORM recorded a cover version of "Out Ta Get Me" for its 2011 EP, "ReAniMate: The CoVeRs eP", which saw the band putting its unique stamp on a diverse collection of classic songs, including tracks by THE BEATLES, HEART, TEMPLE OF THE DOG, SKID ROW and LADY GAGA.
HALESTORM was honored with a Grammy in the "Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance" category in the pre-telecast ceremony at the 55th annual Grammy Awards, which was held on February 10 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. HALESTORM was nominated for the track "Love Bites (So Do I)" , from the band's 2012 album "The Strange Case Of…" The group was up against ANTHRAX, IRON MAIDEN, LAMB OF GOD, MARILYN MANSON and MEGADETH in the category.
