wasted opportunity indeed. Jack sure can write a riff and vocal line.
This could have been one of Slash's real winners...
Damn..
I wonder how many others turned him down to sing on the album?

Anyone who puts 'Axl' and one of these 16 should go play with the traffic 21

Slash states in the original article:

Jack White Turned Down Slash’s Request to Sing on Solo Album

Slash has recruited an impressive roster of guest musicians to appear on Slash & Friends, the Velvet Revolver guitarist’s 2010 solo album. Pals like Dave Grohl, Flea, Chris Cornell, the Pussycat Dolls’ Nicole Scherzinger and pretty much every Guns n’ Roses member not named Axl Rose will make appearances on the LP. However, Slash revealed that one guy he really wanted to work with rebuffed him: The White Stripes/Raconteurs/Dead Weather’s Jack White.

“I wanted to get Jack White to sing on something, but he didn’t want to sing,” Slash told Musicradar.com. “He said ‘I’ll play drums, I’ll play guitar, but I don’t wanna sing.’ He was one guy that I wanted to work with. Pretty much everyone else that I went after I managed to get.”

While White opted out, Slash was reportedly able to recruit another of Michigan’s most musical native sons, Iggy Pop, plus artists like Fergie, Cypress Hill, Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, Meat Loaf and Maroon 5’s Adam Levine. As Rolling Stone previously reported, Slash also found time in his busy schedule to appear on someone else’s album, contributing guitar to Rihanna’s “Rockstar 101″ on Rated R.

According to Slash’s Twitter, the guitarist recorded the final track for his solo album yesterday and Alter Bridge singer Myles Kennedy handled vocals. “Record will be completely done this month,” Slash promises. In addition to a November 16th appearance on the new Lopez Tonight, Slash & Friends will perform at a fundraiser for the Los Angeles Youth Nation at Hollywood’s Avalon Theater on November 22nd. Slash’s friends that night will include Ozzy Osbourne, Billy Idol, Wolfmother’s Andrew Stockdale, Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington, Dave Navarro and Travis Barker.

Meatloaf?   Oh hell yeah, this album just went up another notch in my book.

Slash's solo album will be the only new album I'm going to want to purchase for a long while. I think it has tremendous potential to be as good as Chinese Democracy.

Re: Jack White turned down Slash collaboration

The album is gonna be cool.

Maybe I'm being a stick in the mud but Alice (even though I worship the original band), Adam Levine, Meat Loaf and Cypress Hill don't have me excited. It sounds like their will be more than a few throw aways. But it does sound like there's a huge chance for hits and I really hope Slash gets them.

I'm definitely interested to see what the Meatloaf collaboration sounds like!

I agree, but every album has filler anyway. At least there's diversity. Couldn't imagine Maroon 5 guy singing with Slash. It'd be cool if it was a rocker to see if he can pull it off, but I think it will be tailor made to be a Top 40 song a la Rob Thomas/Santana with "Smooth". A chick song. Hope it's not a carbon copy ripoff of it.

Cypress Hill could be interesting, they're early stuff was cool. Could be terrible though.

Yeah, usually when I think that way, it just comes out exactly as I expect. I think I'll like it, some hits, some misses. One or two hidden gems.
