The new group featuring former GUNS N' ROSES members Slash (guitar),Matt Sorum (drums),and Duff McKagan (bass) are set to make their national TV debut this week when they perform on the "Jimmy Kimmel Live" show on ABC. Slash has been tapped to co-host the show all week long and will reportedly bring his bandmates along for a quick jam on Wednesday, March 26. Since the group have yet to name a vocalist, CYPRESS HILL rappers Sen Dog (a.k.a. Sennen Reyes) and B-Real (a.k.a. Louis Freese) have been invited to join the band on a version of the CYPRESS HILL song "(Rock) Superstar". It is also possible that the group will perform a version of GUNS N' ROSES' "Paradise City", although this has not yet been confirmed. Also set to appear on the show this Friday (March 28) are CAMP FREDDY, the Los Angeles-based "jam" band consisting of JANE'S ADDICTION guitarist Dave Navarro, former THE CULT touring bassist Billy Morrison (on guitar),ex-GUNS N' ROSES/THE CULT drummer Matt Sorum, bassist Scott Ford, and vocalist Donovan Leitch (the son of 1960s U.K. folk-rock icon Donovan). There is no word yet on which special guests CAMP FREDDY will bring along to jam with them during the performance, but it is believed that Slash will NOT be one of them (although this could obviously change).
