This song features The Cult singer Ian Astbury
on vocals. Slash told Musicradar.com
: "It was actually pretty smooth sailing, and pretty easy to get it all together. I was amazed. Ian and I have a long history. Guns N' Roses' first tour of Canada and the US was with The Cult. Those guys had been around, and we were this crazy upstart band that they took out with them.
I always thought Ian was great and when I finished the music to 'Ghost,' he came to mind instantly, probably because of the chord changes. But I hadn't talked to him in a while and I felt sort of embarrassed to send it to him. One of the things I had to get over making this record was getting the nerve up to go after these people. But he's an amazing singer. To be in the studio and watch him work was definitely a very cool experience."
