Guns n' Roses, Sebastian Bach Together at Gods of Metal Fest

Whenever you attend a show and something out of the ordinary happens, say, a special guest pops on stage and does a duet, it's magic. Imagine how cool it would have been to be in the audience at Italy's Gods of Metal festival when Guns n' Roses performed... and Sebastian Bach hopped up on stage for a rendition of "My Michelle." Going to a metal festival in Milan would be amazing. See the bands on the Gods of Metal bill would be over-the-top.

Some of the other Gods of Metal bands included Motley Crue, Ozzy Osbourne, Slash, The Darkness, Ugly Kid Joe, Within Temptation, Black Stone Cherry, Hardcore Superstar and many more!

Would have been even cooler if Slash joined them...

Slash just shoulda duckwalked one of his blistering leads right over the top of both of 'em AND Axl's twin guitar slaves, entering stage left and exiting stage right.

The whole stunt woulda taken around 30 seconds or so and would have been the biggest Rock and Roll news event since Cobain checked out.

Slash would forever be larger than life, trumping Rose as a household name forever!

It would go down as one of the biggest moments in Rock & Roll History, right up there with Jimi at Monterey, Dylan going electric, Woodstock and The Stones at Altamont.

p.s. A friend of mine told me it would be completely possible as he could play right through Ashba's amps and P.A., basically heisting his rig. Oh, the collective jaw dropping and Axl's facial expression of shock and awe would be worth every cent of pain that clown ever put Slash through plus the ensuing litigation hat would take place. Plus, Slash would no longer find it necessary to screw up his album's front cover graphics with anyone else's names anymore.

Mr. Bach joining G n R has happened to many times to make it really special in my opinion.
Seeing Iggy Pop in a small club back in '93 and having Slash, Duff and Matt join him on stage, now THAT was a wow moment.

@ metalboy..I agree, that would be unbelievable. I just saw slash in Baltimore and he was amazing, but I'm not sure why u don't like the album cover w miles' name on it? I think Miles should be on there, cause he slays all those sons including the GnR tunes in concert. Anyhow, let's go see Accept in September in DC

I wonder if Axx-Hole was perturbed by all the kidz wearing Slash t shirts at the gig.

Baz on stage w/ Guns n' Posers? Yawwwn. Non-Event.

Yep, I don't really see the big deal about this. Baz has been suckling at the Axl teat for years.

Metalboy! described exactly the scenario I had in mind.

I love Metalboy's hypothetical scenario too. Problem is, it would have to be an inside job, else Slash (1) wouldn't be able to gain access to the venue, much less the stage; (2) couldn't hijack anyone's amps. Just imagining Axl's reaction is worth the dream, though.

Slash should f*ck with Axl but after I wrote that "Stage Robbery" scene I realized Slash is too big to bother.

Aw, ya can't really knock Bach for jumpin' up on stage with Axl. Besides, Axl should be grateful as Baz sings much better than he does.

Snoot! That Iggy moment was HUGE! Talk about Rock and Roll History in the making. Makes sense it happened since Slash played all over Iggy's biggest album, "Brick By Brick".

Bri -- Look at all the great front covers of Van Halen, Montrose or the first few Ted Nugent albums. They don't put David Lee Roth's, Hagar's or Derek St. Holmes' names on 'em. Now, granted those acts used their key player's last names as their band names, or in the case of Nugent really is all about him. But I was startin' to think of Slash's name as the name of his band. Besides it just makes for more kick a*s monumental front cover when you don't muck it up with a buncha extra sh*t on it. He shoulda taken a clue from Van Halen and put each of the member's pictures on the back as separate shots. That would suffice.

Accept in Baltimore?! Thanks for lettin' me know! See ya in September!

p.s. Hands down, Accept, "Metal Heart" is easily my favorite 80's Metal album. Before the gig in Orlando last summer, at the meet n' greet, I got 'em to agree to play "Midnight Mover". Let's see if we can get 'em to do it in Baltimore, as they don't always put that on the set list. Sorry, but Wolf Hoffman smokes Slash.

Geez! And did you see this line-up? What a festival. It's like a modern day Woodstock of 80's Hair Metal (Got news for ya -- G'n'R are Hair Metal). I wish I had been Italy for it!

Except for Ugly Kid Joe. They blow! Santa Lucia!
