WOLFMOTHER Frontman Talks SLASH Collaboration

WOLFMOTHER frontman Andrew Stockdale recently spoke to Artisan News Service about his collaboration with Slash on a song that will likely appear on the former GUNS N' ROSES guitarist's upcoming solo album.

"Well, he just reached out," Stockdale explained when asked how the collaboration came about. "His manager sent an e-mail through and asked if I'd be interested and I was honored. Honored to play with Slash. So when we got to L.A. to make the WOLFMOTHER record, after the session of doing WOLFMOTHER songs, Slash dropped in one night and we just sat there with an acoustic and went through the song."

He continued, "It was really, really like an incredible experience to write with Slash. He's a cool guy. He moves really fast too. His creative process had me on my toes. He's very alert with what he's looking for and how a song needs to move."

Slash is tracking his solo record with former NINE INCH NAILS drummer Josh Freese and ex-JANE'S ADDICTION bassist Chris Chaney. Confirmed guest singers so far include Ozzy Osbourne and AVENGED SEVENFOLD's M. Shadows. The CD is being produced by Eric Valentine (GOOD CHARLOTTE, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE) and features additional appearances by ex-GUNS N' ROSES drummer Steven Adler and RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS bassist Flea. Freese told MusicRadar.com that Iggy Pop, Fergie (a.k.a. Stacy Ann Ferguson) of the BLACK EYED PEAS and Chris Cornell (SOUNDGARDEN, AUDIOSLAVE) will also appear on the LP. Working songtitles include "We're All Gonna Die", "These Last Words", "Crucify The Dead" and "Beautiful, Dangerous".

Slash left GUNS N' ROSES in the mid-'90s, forming SLASH'S SNAKEPIT before later assembling VELVET REVOLVER with several other ex-members of GUNS N' ROSES and STONE TEMPLE PILOTS singer Scott Weiland.

VELVET REVOLVER is currently searching for a replacement for Weiland, who was dismissed in April 2008.
