I Hold On

Songfacts®:

  • This track features American singer-songwriter and rapper Kid Rock. Slash recalled to Musicradar.com: "Sometimes I would take two different ideas and send them to one artist to see which they gravitated towards. With Kid Rock, I sent him the first one – absolutely no reaction, no phone call back, nothing. I thought, hmm. So I sent him an email telling him I had another song that I thought he should hear because I had two songs that sounded like him. So I sent him the other one; instant reaction. This is great."
