Speaking with Variety in a new interview, Slash disclosed that the collaboration took place when he was working on his first solo record.
“When I was doing my first solo record, I worked with a lot of different people, some of whom, for whatever reason, didn’t end up on the record,” he said. “One was with Chester.”
“We did a song and Linkin Park at the time didn’t allow it to happen, so I did it with Lemmy [Kilmister]. The guy who engineered my demos sent it to me and I sent it to Chester’s family. But it was a trip cause the song [called "Doctor Alibi”] really speaks to his state of mind.”
“His family has got it so it would be totally up to them. It was really good. He was awesome. It would be fine with me if they wanted to [r[release]t. Musically it’s basically the same as the Lemmy song, but the lyrics are really poignant.”
