Slash Wants To Rock Sesame Street

08/14/2012
.
(Gibson) Slash has done it all: played in one of the most legendary rock bands of all time, shared the stage with Michael Jackson, paid tribute to Van Halen at that band's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, but there's one gig he's never been able to land: Sesame Street.

In an interview with Australia's Rip It Up magazine, the guitarist said, "Sesame Street have never approached me, though I would do it and I love kids. There's no way I'd ever turn Sesame Street down, but I don't know if parents would think I'm the best public influence on little kids."

It does bring up the question: what exactly would Slash play on Sesame Street? R.E.M. reworked "Shiny Happy People" as "Fuzzy Happy Monsters," Nora Jones changed "Don't Know Why" to "Don't Know Y" and even James Blunt got in on the action by changing "You're Beautiful" to "My Triangle." Perhaps "Sweet Child o' Nine" or perhaps new lyrics for "Welcome to the Jungle" about different types of jungle fauna? more on this story
