Thanks to Faldor from HTGTH.
Just started listening to the interview, it started about 15 minutes ago. Eddie played "Nothing To Say" before Slash came on and he said he always wanted to play "thrash" songs like that but was never in a band that allowed him to before but he plans on doing a lot more like it in the future. Was influenced in thrash by Black Sabbath originally and is a big Dave Mustaine fan. Saying back when they both were in the process of quitting their bands they got together and wrote some killer stuff, but never recorded them. He joked that it was probably best for both of their sobrieties, or lack thereof, that they didn't continue to work together.
Eddie brought up "Beautiful Dangerous" and said he was man enough to admit that he loved the track. He also mentioned how he heard the version of "Paradise City" with her singing and said she sounded great. Slash said she was a huge Axl fan so it was easy for her to do. Eddie joked, "I'm surprised that didn't scare you off. That's a deal breaker right there". Slash then replied, "no, no, come on. We're all Axl fans in our own special way". Eddie mentioned how Steven Adler was on That Metal Show recently and he was pleading for a GNR reunion and Eddie asked him where the disconnect between Slash and Axl came from. Slash explained that it all began when Steven was ousted from the band.
Eddie asked about the upcoming US tour. Slash said that they'd tour the US until October and Myles will go back to do some stuff with Alter Bridge. They'd reconvene in January and do some stuff with Ozzy and do some stuff in Australia and ultimately tour into NEXT summer. Eddie asked him straight up, "So you're gonna go out and play with Ozzy in America?" To which Slash responded, "Yeah".
On Velvet Revolver. They're going to get together from October to December and try to find a singer. He said he's got his fingers crossed on that one.
Said they're thinking of adding "Been There Lately" or "Serial Killer" from Snakepit to the set, and they'll probably add "My Michelle" for the US tour. Fergie is playing the LA gig and "Beautiful Dangerous" WILL be a single at some point. Eddie said he got a Steven Tyler vibe from Fergie on the song. After letting Slash go, Eddie played "Beautiful Dangerous".

We think we've come so far
On all our lies we depend
Facing our consequence
This is the beginning of the end
