Slash Recorded an Unreleased Song With Chester Bennington
Slash recorded an unreleased song with Chester Bennington and there's a chance it could be released in the future. In a new interview with Variety, the guitar legend spoke on his first solo album and revealed the collaboration.
"When I was doing my first solo record, I worked with a lot of different people, some of whom, for whatever reason, didn’t end up on the record," he said. "One was with Chester. We did a song and Linkin Park at the time didn’t allow it to happen, so I did it with Lemmy [Kilmister]. The guy who engineered my demos sent it to me and I sent it to Chester’s family. But it was a trip cause the song [called 'Doctor Alibi'] really speaks to his state of mind."
Regarding whether or not it will ever be released, he said, "His family has got it so it would be totally up to them. It was really good. He was awesome. It would be fine with me if they wanted to [release] it. Musically it’s basically the same as the Lemmy song, but the lyrics are really poignant."
