Speaking about the film, Ronson also added that he is “psyched and satisfied” with the final product.
“We hadn’t met before, we just went into the studio and talked about music”, Ronson said. “As he started to get warmed up, I was like, ‘Oh my god, this guy is gonna murder this song.’ And of course he would. He’s Ken. Who would understand this song better than him?”.

Speaking of films, Slash himself spoke about the recent horror film which “scared the s***” out of him.
“I don’t scare very easily”, he said. “That said, the first Night Of The Living Dead scared the shit out of me. It was so visceral, raw and fucking bleak. I found it quite unsettling”.
