Slash is the original guitarist for Guns and Roses, a battle hardened metal group from the 1980s, and Fergie, is the lead vocalist for Black Eyed Peas, a frilly hip hop group from the early 2000s. Their music was meant for two entirely different audiences and who I am to judge either group? It’s all based on preference.
However, putting the two together was not something I expected two years ago when I first discovered this song. The combination is surprisingly effective, though, with Fergie giving some powerful vocals that prove, holy cow, she really is a good vocalist and Slash with his usual good guitar work to back her up. This video is kind of sleazy, but I still find it very interesting.
