Ex-GUNS N' ROSES Guitarist To Collaborate With Actress GINA GERSHON On Movie Soundtrack

Actress Gina Gershon is trying to arrange a songwriting session with former GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Slash and songwriter/producer Linda Perry (CHRISTINA AGUILERA, PINK) in hopes of recording an original song for the "Prey for Rock and Roll" soundtrack, according to Rolling Stone magazine. "Prey…" features Gershon in the role of Jacki, the lead singer of the fictional band CLAM DANDY and an aging punker who refuses to give up on her dream.

Gershon originally hooked up with Slash and fellow ex-Gunners Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum when they jammed together at the Sundance Film Festival in January. "The movie's producer said I had to play the party at Sundance," she said, "and I wasn't about to do an acoustic solo thing. Slash said he was coming to see the movie, and then I ran into Matt, so it just kind of fell together."

Gershon led the band through NANCY SINATRA's "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'" and THE STOOGES' "I Wanna Be Your Dog". "I turn to my left and see Slash and think, 'Oh my God, I'm playing on stage with Slash," she recalled. "It was one of those weird out-of-body experiences: The first band I ever play with is Guns n' Gershon. It was so much fun. At this point, I'm just working on a movie so I can support my music habit."

Gershon has so far recorded eight songs for her own as-yet-untitled album, but hopes to put down at least fifteen more before she decides when, and if, she wants to release it.
