SLASH - 'By The Sword'
April 28, 2010, 8 years ago
SLASH (VELVET REVOLVER, ex-GUNS N' ROSES) has premiered his new video for the song 'By The Sword', featuring Andrew Stockdale from WOLFMOTHER.
There was talk that the first single from Slash's new solo efforts would be OZZY OSBOURNE's 'Crucify The Dead' but it was pulled last minute and replaced with 'By The Sword'. Slash recently shed some light on the switch with BraveWords.com:"It’s so funny how things go. A lot of the brass wanted to go with the Ozzy song as the first single, but he’s got a record coming out. So I guess they wouldn’t want to have two competing Ozzy singles. It would have been a little bit of a conflict of interest, so that was basically it. And I was sort of not totally into the Ozzy idea because it was just the predictable thing to do. I love the Ozzy song, but I didn’t want to try to capitalize on Ozzy’s presence on the record. I thought that would have been sort of tacky, so when it turned out that there was no way it was going to happen, I was sort of relieved."
