Slash Honored Scott Weiland With a Cover of ‘Sucker Train Blues’
He was playing a New Year's Eve show with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators
Enigmatic guitar god Slash — of the possibly reuniting Guns N’ Roses — took a moment during his New Year’s Eve show in Las Vegas to remember some of the musicians we lost in 2015, including Motöhead’s Lemmy and Velvet Revolver frontman Scott Weiland. Flanked onstage by Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, Slash honored “these amazingly talented, f**king original, character driven f**king personalities,” before playing an emotional VR track as a tribute to Weiland. “We lost them both this year, so we’ll dedicate this one to Scott. It’s called ‘Sucker Train Blues.'” Watch the performance below (h/t Alternative Nation).
