Rod Jackson (Slash's Snakepit) on

I have said it before: Rod Jackson (Slash's Snakepit) never ceases to amaze me - What an incredible voice & talent! He is getting funky on the new "Tweek Show - Dirt Ta Dust" - He has appeared on around 65 Big Swede tracks and is kickin a$$ on my upcoming REFURBISHED record - I consider him one of the finest vocalists in rock! Also on this track are Reeves Gabrels (David Bowie, Tin Machine) & Greg Hampton (Alice Cooper, Bootsy Collins), together with BS - LISTEN BELOW: SPOTIFY: http://open.spotify.com/album/6EhSXQ73yDQ488aRiW11PM ITUNES: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/dirt-ta-dust-feat.-big-swede/id881674521 GOOGLE PLAY https://play.google.com/store/music/album/Tweek_Show_Dirt_Ta_Dust?id=Bmqy7pnozln5xmdtllvnssqaiby...
