Hear Slash and Erik Gronwall on Michael Schenker’s ‘Mother Mary’

Michael Schenker has recruited Slash and ex-Skid Row singer Erik Gronwall for an updated version of UFO‘s “Mother Mary,” the first single off his upcoming retrospective album My Years With UFO.

You can listen to the song below.

Originally released in 1975 on UFO’s fourth album Force It, “Mother Mary” sports a titanic groove and no shortage of punchy riffs. Schenker and Slash trade leads on the new version, while Gronwall hits plenty of the piercing high notes that made him a vocal phenom ever since he won Swedish Idol in 2009.
