Lzzy Hale Joins Slash for Cover of Guns N’ Roses’ ‘Out Ta Get Me’ at Sweden’s Bandit Rock Awards
There are times in rock where the planets just align for a great collaboration and that happened again last week (Feb. 22) at Stockholm, Sweden's Bandit Rock Awards when Halestorm's Lzzy Hale hopped onstage to join Slash and his touring band Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators for a performance of Guns N' Roses' 'Out Ta Get Me.'
This isn't the first time the pair have teamed up on the song, as Hale crossed paths with Slash and his band in The Netherlands last year and also performed the Guns N' Roses cover. At the time, Hale stated, "It was so cool. When we started the song, out of habit I went into live rock mode and kind of spaced out for a second and then went into the middle section where we were just kind of riffing with the solo and just kind of lost my mind for a second. I was like, 'What's going on? Slash is right here! He's sweating on me!' It was so cool. It was the best thing ever."
This time around, Hale and her old pal Slash were better acquainted and even shared a warm embrace at the end of the performance. Fan-shot footage from the Bandit Rock Awards performance can be seen below. In addition to playing 'Out Ta Get Me' with Slash onstage a couple of times, the Guns N' Roses song was one of Halestorm's covers on their 2011 EP, 'ReAniMate: The Covers EP.'
