It was also revealed that Slash performs on “I’m Just Ken,” which was written by Mark Ronson and sung by Ryan Gosling. Ronson recruited Slash for the song, he explained in an interview with Variety. “Slash is my hero,” he said. “I was, what, [in] seventh grade when Appetite for Destruction came out. He’s my all-time hero. I had pictures of Slash all over my walls. So when we were getting near this song being done, I was like, ‘It never hurts to ask.’ It seems like such a long shot.”
The risk ended up turning into a reward. “I sent him the song and he was like, ‘This is a good song,’” Ronson said. “I [didn’t] know Slash that well before this, and he was like, ‘Cool, I’ll play on it.’ And he was so cool. He killed it. He plays the solo at the end and the rhythm parts. It’s wonderful.”
