SEBASTIAN BACH, MICK MARS And DUFF MCKAGAN Collaborate On Cover Of 'Black Betty'

hip hop legend Darryl “DMC” McDaniels (RUN DMC) is preparing to release a new single called “She Gets Me High”. A remake of “Black Betty” by means of RAM FAULT, it features McDaniels, Sebastian Bach (SKID ROW) on vocals, Mick Mars (MOTLEY CRUE) on guitar, Duff McKagan (GUNS N’ ROSES) on bass and Travis Barker (BLINK-182) on drums.

said Bach: “It kicks complete and total ass in every way!! I CAN’T WAIT FOR YOU ALL TO UPGRADE THIS!!!!!”

about how? barker were involved in the project, McDaniels told SPIN: “I went to a party. Travis is there. He walks up to me and says, ‘Most people jumped on the’ [RUN-DMC] bandwagon with ‘Walk this way’, but I was there since ‘Rock box’. When I heard ‘Rock box’“I knew I could be a rock star.” And he said, “If I can ever do anything for you.” I go, ‘Oh, by the way, me and Sebastian do this.’ He says, “I’m in.” That showed me that what I did in ’85 resonated two generations below me. But we were always healthy. We were dominant, we were divine, but you didn’t see any celebrity; you felt like you were with us.”

Although an early recording of “Black Betty” goes back to 1939, courtesy of bluesman Huddie Ledbetter, it was later addressed by MANFRED MAN in the early 1970s before it became a hit at the hands of the New York City outfit RAM FAULT in 1977.

This is not the first time Sebastian and duff recorded together. Back in 2014, McKagan played on Bach‘s “Give Them Hell” only albums. duff and Sebastian previously collaborated on McKagansolo album from 1993 “Believe in me”.

Almost 20 years ago, McKagan confirmed that Bach was at one point considered for the lead singer position in VELVET REVOLVER before the arrival of Scott Weiland.

“[Sebastian] did some great, amazing things [the music we gave him to record vocals over during the VELVET REVOLVER singer-audition process] and, you know, he’s an old friend of ours and I love that man dearly,” duff said. “The problems we ran into are, it’s, a little bit, with… bazo, we sounded like SKID ROWand we don’t want to go into that [road]… We’re moving forward, you know, [and] we want to try to break new ground.”
