I'm not a hardcore G&R fan but I enjoy some of their stuff. Anyway, Slash is co-hosting Jimmy Kimmel Live this week. Last night he performed with his band in the making which also includes former G&R bassist Duff McKagen. They had a few other guys and were joined by B-Real and Sen Dog from Cypress Hill. They did "Rock Superstar" and a surprisingly cool rendition of "Paradise City".
I think with a good lead singer, this band could go somewhere. Farther than the current G&R lineup with the ever destructive Axl.
Slash and company have to be kicking themselves for letting that jackass Rose get hold of the G n'R name and trademark. They could conceivably reform the entire original band and just get a new singer.

I like John Denver. He had an amazing voice. And good lord knows it's better than the last few Metallica albums have been. Hell, I'd rather listen to John Denver singing "Sanitarium" than the new Metallica album.
