We can hear it now, the inevitable "Youth Gone Wild in the Paradise City" medley.

Sebastian Bach has revealed that former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash has contacted him "out of the blue" about collaborating on a top-secret project.

The erstwhile Skid Row frontman tells Billboard he was invited by Slash to team up on a musical odyssey, which Bach is predicting will be absolutely "mind-blowing."

However, he couldn't say much more about it, claiming he's been sworn him to secrecy.

The one thing Bach did say is that he won't be joining Slash's current outfit, Velvet Revolver, as a replacement for fired vocalist Scott Weiland, who has since reunited with his old mates in Stone Temple Pilots.

Bach said joining Revolver would be "awkward" because he's pals with Slash's old partner Axl Rose. Skid Row opened for the Gunners in the early '90s, and Bach contributed vocals to the eternally delayed Chinese Democracy.

According to Bach, he and Slash are expected to get together soon.

As for Weiland, after getting tossed out of Revolver for "increasingly erratic onstage behavior and personal problems," he gave his blessing to the idea of Bach replacing him, saying he would be "fantastic."
