Did you know Slash and Megadeth's Dave Mustaine were once roommates? If you read Slash's autobiography, you might recall that he wrote "[Mustaine] was a true, complete fucking maniac and a genius riff writer. We'd hang out, smoke crack and come up with major heavy metal riffs, just fucking dark and heavy as hell."
In a new interview with Loudwire, Slash says he would be open to actually committing something to tape with Mustaine, but questions where it would fit:
"I haven't ever talked to him about it," Slash admitted, going on to say, "He's pretty prolific in doing his Megadeth records the way that he does them. I don't see myself guesting on a Megadeth song. I don't think it would work in the context of what Megadeth does, but maybe Dave on one of my things — I don't know."
"It was so cool," he beamed, reflecting on the riffs they conjured up together. "I really love Mustaine's whole riffing style; I really love where he's coming from. So when we were hanging out together, granted it was heavily under the influence, it was a blast," he added. "We sort of got our shit together and went back to our respective bands, but we've jammed a couple times. I played with him recently at a concert where myself and I think Zakk [Wylde] and a couple other guys got up and we jammed on something and it was pretty cool."
It would make way more sense for Mustaine to guest on a Slash track rather than the other way. But if it were to happen, it would be a while as Slash has already completed a new solo album, Living the Dream and its out Sept. 21st. Hear a new song right here.
