Former SKID ROW frontman Sebastian Bach has posted the following message on his official web site:
"Sometimes in life you make true friends. A true friend is someone whom you can see and then not see, but when you see them again, it is like no time has passed at all. A true friend is someone whom you can laugh with, talk with, hang out with, rock with, and confide in.Then there is the friend who gives you so much you can't express in words how much they mean to you.
"When I look back on my life, I have to say that one of my true friends is Mr. W. Axl Rose. As everyone now knows, when GUNS N' ROSES made their triumphant return to New York City a few weeks ago, Axl was cool enough to invite me onstage all four nights to sing with him the GUNS N' ROSES song of my choice, which happens to be 'My Michelle'. During the NYC shows Axl asked me if I wanted to fly with him to Europe to duet with him in England at Donington and Hammersmith. Of course I said YES and then I mentioned to him the recording of the new CD 'Angel Down' and how much it would mean for our band to open some GUNS N' ROSES shows. Axl's response was to offer the band the whole European tour.
"To say that my mind is blown, or that I am thankful for this opportunity, is so superfluous. I really cannot express how much this means to me.
"Axl Rose is the most honest, genuine, straight-up, and talented person I have ever met in this business, and for him to give my band the chance to rock in front of all his fans is something I will never forget. He is now singing better than ever!
"My personal favorite new GUNS N' ROSES song is 'I.R.S.'
"Last night I jammed with him at Rock Am Ring in Germany in front of 70,000 people after a two-day plane journey which put me in four countries in one day!
"It is gonna be a truly killer summer playing on tour with GUNS N' ROSES and recording the new CD as well!!!
'See ya soon Europe and Japan!"
