Frontman Axl Rose has teamed up with former Skid Row frontman and long-time pal Sebastian Bach on Bach’s forthcoming solo album ‘Angel Down’.
Rose appears on two of the album’s tracks. The first track, ‘(Love Is) A Bitchslap’, is the album’s first single. The second track is a cover of Aerosmith‘s ‘Back In The Saddle’.
Bach, who sang on the forthcoming Guns N Roses album, said he decided to ask Rose to return the favour as a joke, and was surprised at his response.
"I just texted Axl, I go, ‘Hey, dude, when are you gonna come and sing on my record?’" Bach told Blabbermouth.
"I was just joking — I didn’t think he would do that. But he never ceases to amaze me. 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 fucking kidding me. Pinch me, I’m dreaming.’"
‘Angel Down’ is due out in the US on November 20. It is Bach’s first solo album since 1999’s ‘Bring ‘Em Bach Alive’.
