Guns N’ Roses debuted their cover of Velvet Revolver’s ‘Slither’ live in Berlin on Sunday. Slash and Duff McKagan played with Scott Weiland in Velvet Revolver, so the performance is a fitting tribute to their fallen bandmate. There’s fan footage of the awesome cover available below.
According to Alternative Nation, rumors in the past have stated that Velvet Revolver recorded ten songs with Stone Sour and Slipknot singer Corey Taylor. Rhythm guitarist, Dave Kushner recently revealed in interview that the band recorded eight songs with Taylor but things didn’t work out.

Dude, we tried, we worked with fucking … we recorded like eight songs with Corey Taylor.’
