DJ 5agge Creates Virtual Guns N’ Roses Reunion
August 16, 2010
DJ 5agge has combined Axl Rose’s vocals from Chinese Democracy with tracks from Velvet Revolver (featuring Slash, Duff McKagan, Matt Sorum and Dave Kushner) and Slash’s new solo album.
The mashups contain elements of Axl Rose’s vocals from “Prostitute,” “Chinese Democracy,” “If the World,” “There Was a Time,” “Scraped,” and “Madagascar,” as well as audio from Axl Rose’s performance as DJ Tommy “The Nightmare” Smith from the video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
The instrumentation comes from Slash’s “Beautiful Dangerous,” and Velvet Revolver’s “Slither” & “Messages,” (an iTunes bonus track from the band’s much-maligned 2007 release Libertad).
All 4 songs sound killer – Axl’s voice and Slash’s guitar complement each other perfectly. You can tell by these remixes that a new album from Axl and Slash would totally rock and would beat anything either has done post 1993.
