Guns N’ Roses’ “Sweet Child O’ Mine” Featured In First Teaser Trailer For “Thor: Love And Thunder”

Guns N’ Roses‘ “Sweet Child O’ Mine” is featured in a new teaser trailer for “Thor: Love And Thunder.” That film will hit theaters on July 8. Here’s an official synopsis:

“The film finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – a quest for inner peace. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late. Directed by Waititi (“Thor: Ragnarok,” “Jojo Rabbit”) and produced by Kevin Feige and Brad Winderbaum, “Thor: Love and Thunder” opens in theaters July 8, 2022.”

Mike McCready (Pearl Jam) & Josh Homme (Queens Of The Stone Age) To Guest On New Ozzy Osbourne Album

Mike McCready (Pearl Jam) and Josh Homme (Queens Of The Stone Age) are set to appear on Ozzy Osbourne’s upcoming album. They join previously announced guests: Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath), Zakk Wylde (Black Label Society), Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Robert Trujillo (Metallica), Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses), Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Andrew Watt (Post Malone, Miley Cyrus), and the late Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters).

Smith said the following about the record during an appearance on Chris Jericho‘s “Talk Is Jericho” podcast:

“We made another [Ozzy album], and it’s getting mastered tomorrow. We’ve got Robert Trujillo playing on some songs, who’s been in Ozzy‘s band. Duff‘s on a couple again. Me and Andrew are doing it.

Tony Iommi and Ozzy have never collaborated outside of Black Sabbath. Tony sent us a bunch of riffs and we took what we thought was the best of ’em, which was fucking great. So Andy‘s on the bass doing fucking great — the bass on the song is amazing. And Tony sent us the riffs — files; he’s in England — and we played to it. It’s fucking got everything. It’s got all the stuff that you would want. Ozzy loves it. And so he’s on that track.

Then Eric Clapton plays a fucking wah-wah Cream-type solo. We’re, like, ‘Eric, can you solo on this song? Wah-wah, please. Eric, what do you think about this, with the wah-wah?’ Because that’s his fucking thing. And so he’s soloing all over this other track.

Then Jeff Beck is on two songs. We tried to get Jimmy Page, we tried to get the holy trinity, but I don’t think Page plays anymore too much, unfortunately. But Mike McCready‘s on a track. Josh Homme, my neighbor from Queens, solos on a track. And then Zakk Wylde is on the record as well, all over it. So it’s like if you’re a guitar player, [it’s] pretty fucking good.”

Slash On The Possibility Of A New Guns N’ Roses Album: “I Feel Pretty Confident That At Some Point Down The Road, There Will Be”

During an interview with Rolling Stone, Slash was asked about the possibility of a new Guns N’ Roses album. The guitarist responded by saying he is “pretty confident that [there will be a new record] at some point down the road.”

Slash said the following while discussing the band’s latest single “Hard Skool”:

“‘Hard Skool’, in essence, was a completed song when I was first introduced to it. And Duff [McKagan] and I went in and redid the bass and the guitars. It’s a simple song, so it didn’t take a hell of a lot of thought and analysis. I think it was a lot of fun just because it was part and parcel of a bunch of stuff that we were working on that was all sort of new — at least to Duff and I — so we had a good time. There’s a bunch of new stuff also coming, maybe a little bit more complex, but it’s just as much fun.”

He continued when asked about a new album:

“I know we’ve got some songs and we’re releasing another one at some point soon, and there’ll be another one after that. As far as the record is concerned, that remains to be seen as far as a whole package, but I feel pretty confident that at some point down the road, there will be.”
