(Radio.com) On the latest Minimation, where Radio.com animates classic interviews with legendary artists, they revisit a 2014 interview where Slash recalls his legendary sessions with Michael Jackson. You remembered that he played guitar on "Give In To Me" from 1991's 'Dangerous' album, right?

Michael Jackson always had a knack for finding great lead guitar players when he wanted to rock out a bit on a single. On 1982's Thriller, he used Eddie Van Halen on "Beat It." On the follow up, 1987's Bad he called on Billy Idol's axe-man Steve Stevens for "Dirty Diana." And, by the '90s, there was no guitarist hotter than Guns N Roses' Slash. And so it was that Slash got a call from the King of Pop while he was staying in the famed "Riot House" aka the Hyatt on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles.

The song that Slash played on the album was "Give In To Me." He also provided some guitar noise on "Black Or White," but didn't play on the song, contrary to popular belief. But Jackson and Slash hit it off, and the guitarist even hit the road with him for a short time.

And Slash has another story about that. We'll post part two of that interview, where Slash talks about performing with the King of Pop, next week. For now watch part one here.
