"I actually talked on the phone to Sly Stone because I always wanted to do obscure covers of Sly Stone songs," Bach said. "I want to do them in the style of 'Back in the Saddle' from [Bach's new solo album] 'Angel Down'. I had a whole session ready to go. Sly said, 'I'd love Axl and Slash to come play on this.' I texted Axl and said, 'Would you be interested in singing with Sly Stone on some music?' He goes, 'Yeah. If this is a real album that Sly's doing, I will come down there and sing with you guys.'
"I was footing the bill for this session on my own. I had everyone ready to go. At the very last minute my manager calls Sly and says, 'What's Sly going to need?' Sly wanted me to buy him a dog. He gave me this information on a specific kennel in northern California in Napa Valley and a specific breed for one puppy that he wanted me to buy for him for $8,500. That was the straw that broke the camel's back on the session." - more on this story
