April 18, 2008

Wes Orshoski of Billboard.com reports that Slash, Tom Morello, Jerry Cantrell, Perry Farrell, MC5 guitarist Wayne Kramer, Jakob Dylan, Joseph Arthur, Sen Dog of CYPRESS HILL, OURS and others banded together last night in New York for a concert marking the tenth anniversary of Road Recovery, an organization that helps former drug-addicted and alcoholic children get past their addiction through music.

The show worked as a cross between a greatest-hits showcase and an all-star covers band, with Cantrell and Morello joining in for JANE'S ADDICTION classic "Mountain Song" and Slash, Morello and Cantrell joining Kramer for the MC5's vintage "Kick Out the Jams".

Throughout the night, fans chanted "Guns 'N Roses," not knowing that the finale was indeed a GNR anthem, "Paradise City", which brought nearly the entire cast of musicians, from the kids to the professionals, back onstage.
