What do you get when Slash, Chad Smith, Chris Chaney & Post Malone Come Together?

January 2, 2021

If you caught Post Malone’s tribute to Nirvana earlier in the year, then you know you have to check out this “Bud Light Seltzer Sessions Presents: New Years Eve 2021” from MGM Resorts in Las Vegas with Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, Jane’s Addiction bassist Chris Chaney & Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash!

This was part of a Facebook livestream on New Years Eve. The trio covered Alice In Chains’ “Rooster” and Black Sabbath’s “War Pigs”. Ozzy was a featured guest on Malone’s “Take What You Want”.

The show was hosted by Lilly Singh and Matt Steffanina, and also featured sets from Saweetie, Steve Aoki and Sebastián Yatra.

Post Malone talked about working with Ozzy on “Take What You Want”, “Ozzy Osbourne, baby. I was in Utah because I had just got off tour. It’s good, right? Ozzy went over to Watt’s house. You’ve talked a lot before. He’s a maniac. I said, ‘Hey, you know what? Ozzy Osbourne’s coming down. We’re going to cut it and I’ll FaceTime you. And you let me know what’s going on.’ We talked and it was like a big deal. Yeah. Ozzy Osbourne. I think he crushed it. I mean he was talking to Watt and Watt was telling me he was like this, ‘Yo, this is my favorite that I’ve done since, you know, SABBATH and since I started my own, own way.’ I was like, ‘That’s huge.’ I’m like honored. Thank you very much.”

Gotta hand it to Post Malone. He’s talented and heavyweights in the rock world take notice and support him. Not sure this performance was as good as his Nirvana tribute, but it’s still pretty damn sweet.

Way to ring in 2021!
