The Guns N’ Roses / AC/DC path has crossed yet again with Brian Johnson of AC/DC joining Slash of Guns N’ Roses for a cover of the Howlin’ Wolf blues classic ‘Killing Floor’.

AC/DC and Guns N’ Roses co-habitated back in 2016 when AXL Rose was lead singer from April to September that year for around two dozen shows when Brian was out of action with hearing issues.

This new Slash song also has another special guest with Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler playing harmonica on the track.

The song is a preview of Slash’s upcoming blues album ‘Orgy of the Damned’. Guests across the album include Chris Robinson of The Black Crowes, Gary Clark Jr, Billy F. Gibbons of ZZ Top, Iggy Pop, Chris Stapleton, Paul Rodgers of Free/Bad Company and Beth Hart.

‘Orgy of the Damned’ will be released on 17 May, 2024.
