Mitch Lafon, the host of Westwood One’s Rock Talk with Mitch Lafon, is reporting a rumor that Guns N’ Roses have recorded a new cover of T-Rex’s “Children of the Evolution” for an upcoming tribute album, which would also feature Foo Fighters.
Lafon tweeted, “Unsubstantiated reports claim Guns N’ Roses have recorded a cover of T-Rex’s Children Of The Revolution for inclusion on a upcoming tribute album. Other artists on the album are said to include U2, Elton John, Foo Fighters and Joan Jett. Until released consider this to be rumor.”
The last time Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan released a new recording together was Guns N’ Roses’ cover of The Rolling Stones’ “Sympathy for the Devil” for the Interview with the Vampire soundtrack in December 1994. There was tension during the recording as Paul Tobias recorded over some of Slash’s guitar leads. Gilby Clarke also left the band around the time of the recording.
Clarke said (via Ultimate Classic Rock), “They did that while I was on the road touring for my solo record. […] I knew that that was the ending because nobody told me about it. Officially I was in the band at that time, and they did that song without me. That was one of the last straws for me, because nobody had said anything to me, and they recorded a song by one of my favorite bands. It was pretty clear I’m a big Rolling Stones fan, and they recorded the song without me. So I knew that was it.”
Guns N’ Roses are wrapping up their two and a half year long ‘Not In This Lifetime’ reunion tour this weekend in Honolulu. Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators will tour across the world in 2019 to promote their new album Living the Dream.
