Slash says Garage Days is 'one of the best cover records of all time'

Slash believes Metallica's 'Garage Days' is one of the best cover records "of all time".

The 54-year-old musician has hailed the band's version of 'Garage Days' whilst discussing Guns N' Roses' 1993 covers album 'The Spaghetti Incident?'.

Slash told the radio station 95.5 KLOS: "Just being able to do an interpretation of a song that you really like [is really cool].

"Some cover records are better than others. But the ones where the artist really relates to the original material and it becomes part of their personality when they re-record it, I think that's really cool.

"I thought 'Garage Days' from Metallica was one of the best cover records of all time. It was great."

Slash - whose real name is Saul Hudson - also recalled the creative and production process behind 'The Spaghetti Incident?'.

Discussing how they picked specific tracks for the album, Slash explained: "Duff [McKagan] picked a couple. 'Since I Don't Have You', I remember [Axl Rose] had brought it up, and I'd always loved that song, so I was, like, 'Yeah, that'd be a great song to do.'

"I think 'Hair Of The Dog' was one of the ones that he and I both wanted to do. But, yeah, everybody sort of threw ideas in the hat."

Of the recording process, Slash added: "It was a hell of a lot of fun.

"It was very spontaneous and it was recorded in different studios around - well, some stuff was in the States; I think we recorded some stuff in, I wanna say Canada - don't quote me on that.

"But I know that there were different studios, different locations while we were on the road."
