Axl Rose Joins Bach


Guns N' Roses man teams up with Sebastian Bach
Axl Rose joins long-time pal on new album

Axl Rose by Kevin Mazur
Guns N' Roses 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 U.S. on November 20. It is Bach's first solo album since 1999's Bring 'Em Bach Alive.

I just checked the wall calendar and it did not say 04/01.

I am confused.

What the fuck? I mean, huh? Axl Fucking Rose is the reason I went in search of better music and I ended up for the most part listening to jambands.

I sure hope they keep us up to date on the latest Whitesnake tour. I heard it's going to be awesome. They are going to have like almost 2 original members.

Now c'mon people. I'm sure this is going to be some top notch, high quality music! I've been waiting for a collaboration like this since 1985.

Shouldn't Axl focus on finishing HIS album before working on other people's stuff. I mean, that Chinese Democracy album has only been in the works for like 15 years...

I heard Gene Simmons is a guest on many of the tracks playing his infamous flaming sword.

I think it's time Axl gets a reality show? Anyone have any ideas?

Axle's album nor his face are completely done and won't be for some time. Botox and Pro Tools have a way of drawing things out.

i believe the chinese communists will be a democracy before axl gets around to getting his "chinese democracy" album out..........maybe he can debut it when they "tear down that wall".........

maybe if he had released something within a decade (or so) after the illusions i would have cared.......

Oh my gosh-this would have been my dream "band" in 1993!!! Now if they could get Jani Lane of Warrant to join, this might be the next super jam!
Sebastian Bach is still hot!

Hey Axl,

Where is Chinese Democracy?!!! We've been waiting like almost 15 years for that album. My guess is that democracy will actually come to China before that album drops.

Speaking of China,

It's gonna be kind of amusing to see how all of those foreign athletes are gonna perform in the outdoors next year at the Olympics in Beijing in all that air that is so polluted to the point where you can even see much more than two feet in front of you.

Hey Gmoo-How about we call his reality TV gig-"Junk Show" A contest to see which upcoming musical star of Blender Magazine can shoot the most smack and not OD. However, if the celebrity singer shows up to a concert on time they lose points. If they have to cancel a gig due to bursting veins or passing out in thier own vomit the get bonus points.

Jambase-Thanks for a good laugh, I know this was only for the comedy.

Here's your reality show. You put Axl, Sebastian, Brett Michaels (i know he's busy though), and maybe someone like Mick Mars on a stage and people pay money into their "braid fund" and try to decide if their faces have been ravaged by drugs or the Grim Reaper. You call it "Meth or Death". If you win, you get to be on either their current or future VH1 reality show. If you lose--they give you the clap. Nice!

Thank you all for a good laugh. I had to come back to this board to see what was going to be said. Meth or Death, not bad.

Never a GnR fan but Axl gave all music fans one great thing:


Now I'm gonna go write my words on the face of today

Hair jokes aside, this might be really good.

I caught GnR last fall in SF, they were really awesome. The "hired guns" played killer. Bach(& Skid row) was the opening act, and later he sat in with Axl for a couple tunes and they sounded suprisingly good together.

who knows, it might turn into some crappy VH1 reality show, or totally rock out!

Axl rules!!! I have heard a few tracks from Chinese Democracy and thought they were pretty cool. It's no "Outside/Inside" but it was alright.

boknows that is the best comment ever, blind melon is prolly the most underrated band of all time. Shannon Hoon is a genius, i still will not watch VH1 since they named them one of the most underrated bands of all time, totally bullshit.

GN'R was one of the great bands of the late 80s, early 90s but AXL had to wreck it. Too many cancelled gigs, the St. Louis Massacre, then he had to make a video where he just HAD TO swim with dolphins. Dolphins? Jeez. There's some street cred. Nice friggin name: AXL.LOL!

I think its funny how axel goes out of the way to do something like this, but won't finish tours (or even shows sometimes) with his own band.

Axl Rose is basically insane okay? What about "Chinese Democracy" or whatever it was supposed to be called?
