That's Fergie on the chorus? Sounds a lot like Eric Martin. Not as good as the original but I thought it was fine for the 2 minutes I played.

Sounds like Joss Stone to me.

Is this the super-secret project that Slash was working on with various artists when I saw him on American Idol last season?

Re: Slash featuring Cypress Hill and Fergie cover "Paradise City"

That might explain why Slash played with the Black Eyed Peas at the U2 Show in Pasadena?

They did Sweet Child O' Mine, that was pretty cool.

Re: Slash featuring Cypress Hill and Fergie cover "Paradise City"

Great! Now we have something just as awful to match the legendary "raping of a classic" that was the Diddy w/Jimmy Page "Come With Me" take-off of "Kashmir".....

Re: Slash featuring Cypress Hill and Fergie cover "Paradise City"

Sorry guys this version of Paradise City isn't very good at all. Now the Japanese tune I at least found interesting. FYI, apparently a tune with Ozzy is going to be a rebuttal to Axl's "Sorry" (song on last year's Chinese Democracy album primarily aimed at Slash and others).

Re: Slash featuring Cypress Hill and Fergie cover "Paradise City"

I thought Fergie's parts were pretty good... I think she has a good rock voice. But the rapping just didn't work for me. I like Cypress Hill but they sound so generic here. It reminded me of those rap breakdowns that get tacked on to the end of songs (like Weezer ft. Lil Wayne) except it was throughout the song.

If I could remove any group from existence, so it appears to all concerned that they never existed at all, it may very well be The Black Eyed Peas.

I like the way Fergie moves her hips. Josh Dumeail (sp?) is an idiot.

This sounds like when you hear of a bunch of 40-year olds trying to do "today's new sounds" and failing miserably.

Which is what it is.
