Track: Slash Covers Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Oh Well’ (feat Chris Stapleton)

Slash recently announced his sixth solo album ‘Orgy of the Damned‘, which is due out on the 17th of May 17 via Gibson Records. After sharing the first single ‘Killing Floor’ feat. Brian Johnson, Slash has now released the second single a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Oh Well” which features outlaw country star Chris Stapleton on vocals.

About the track Slash comments:

“So, this is the original Fleetwood Mac, which was founded by Peter Green, one of the greatest singer-songwriter-guitar players, he’s less known in the public, but very well known to us guitar players re the 60s British blues and he’s up there with Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Nick Taylor. He sort of had a misadventure with drugs and disappeared early in his career, but he had some great fucking songs and ‘Oh Well’ is one of my favorites.”

“I remember hearing the song on the radio when I was probably 13, they used to play both the older version of Fleetwood Mac and the new version of the band with Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham a lot. I always loved this song, and it’s a great guitar riff. I jammed it with the Blues Ball back in the ‘90s, and I’ve played it live here and there. I knew from the beginning I wanted to do the song on this record. It was also one of the songs that I was trying to figure out who would be the right vocalist for it, and one of the ideas I had was Chris Stapleton, who is one of the most brilliant singer songwriters today. He’s also got such a gritty and distinctive voice, so I called him up and he did an amazing job. I mean, his voice is so cool.”

A faithful rendition that really shines with Stapleton’s vocals as Slash gives the track a more laid back hard rock vibe before descending into chaotic guitar madness to bring the track to a close. Some of Slash’s finest fretwork in a long time.
