Listen to Slash Guest on the new Michael Monroe single

Guns ‘n’ Roses guitarist Slash can be heard solo on Michael Monroe‘s new single “I Live Too Fast to Die Young.” It’s the title track from Monroe’s latest album, which is available now. You can watch the video below.

“This one started life as just a song title – a heavy nod to Vivienne Westwood’s ‘Too Fast to Live, Too Young to Die’ T-shirts after I got one from a fan in Japan,” guitarist Rich Jones said in a declaration. “It’s a reference to Michael’s seemingly boundless energy and the fact that he’s still kicking ass after all these years.”

Monroe added: “I love reinventing old clichés. The whole ‘live fast, die young’ cliché is so boring, so I live too fast to die young! It takes more to survive and be here today than to self-destruct and die young. … Slash is one of the nicest guys I know and one of rock’s greatest guitarists as he has maintained the spontaneity, the human touch and the heartfelt kick-ass attitude in his playing. I thought , that it would be a good one for him to solo on. He said he loved the song and it’s super catchy.”

Jones described Slash’s entry as “an absolutely ripping guitar solo” and said it has become a favorite during the band’s shows. They begin a UK tour with Black Star Riders in feb. 13, with a series of Finnish dates to follow.
