"Watch This" features Mr Foo Fighters Dave Grohl & and ex GNR and Velvet Revolver bassist Duff McKagan.
Slash said “I wrote the basic parts and I had sort of a loose arrangement, but this was definitely the loosest song of the bunch, and having Dave there, who is such a dynamic drummer – I’d never actually worked with him but I’m very familiar with his drumming – and with Duff there too, they’re both very creative so I knew we could throw this together.
"I didn’t want it to be epic, I wanted it to be three minutes long, and it came together very quickly with a very spontaneous, live kind of vibe. Actually, I tried to get Dave to sing it, but he wouldn’t sing it, so I just said fuck it, we’ll put guitars on it. He was adamant about not singing, he was like, I just wanna play drums, and he’s a fucking phenomenal drummer.”
The irony of coming to the site looking for Watch This lyrics are that this song is an instrumental!
Have a listen, you can totally hear echoes from Use Your Illusion era Slash:
Nommé "Watch This Dave" puis "Watch This", ce titre est un instrumental car Dave Grohl ne voulait pas chanté mais seulement jouer de la batterie malgré les motivations de Slash.
