May 7th - Weiland/Guns
N' Roses Record Second Song
Scott Weiland has recorded a second song with the band featuring ex-Guns
'N Roses members Slash, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum. McKagen and Sorum
attended the taping of Metallica's MTV Icon show Saturday and said
they've contributed an original song titled "Set Me Free"
to The Hulk soundtrack to go with the already announced cover of Pink
Floyd's "Money" for The Italian Job. The five-piece band,
which has been referred to as The Project--although Sorum and McKagen
refused to confirm that the name is "set in stone"--also
includes ex-Wasted Youth guitarist Dave Kushner. The Hulk premieres
June 20th, three weeks after The Italian Job.
The band had been auditioning singers from all over the world, but
Sorum tells us they knew Weiland was their man the minute he walked
into the studio. McKagan says they hope to release an album next February.
He calls the two soundtrack songs, "a good way to start this
thing. Number one, it puts a little money into our thing so maybe
we can do our own record and license it out, but it's also a good
way to see what it's like in a studio situation with Weiland."
