Slash has revealed that he was forced to ditch a collaboration with Steven Tyler from his recently released solo album because he was certain the track would be blocked by Aerosmith’s record label. Said long player did feature contributions from the likes of Black Eyed Peas’ vocalist Fergie, Ozzy Osbourne and Motorhead frontman Lemmy.

The guitarist told “I worked with Steven for a second, but it was just a huge conflict of interest with Aerosmith. The song hasn’t been used with anybody else, but there was no chance that the record company was gonna allow us to release it, so we had to let it go”.
