Sam Fox Wants Slash To Play On Her New Record
According to the Daily Star
Sam Fox, The 53-year-old ex-glamour model is a frustrated rock chick.
So she has hatched a plan to get in the studio with axe legend man Slash and record favourite heavy guitar anthems by Motörhead and Iron Maiden.
Sam, who was a friend of late Motörhead frontman Lemmy, revealed: “I want to record a rock covers album with songs by Motörhead, Iron Maiden, Def Leppard and I want to record it with Slash. I want to do it because I’ve always been, in a way, a frustrated rock star.
“I covered (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction by The Stones.
“That was a very pop version but when I sing it live I make it a rock version.”
Sam topped the charts in 17 countries with her debut single Touch Me (I Want Your Body) way back in 1986.

Your new bass is a beauty. Tell us how it came about.
“When I started playing with Walking Papers in 2012, they had recorded part of their first record in Seattle with [singer] Jeff Angell, who is a Seattle treasure and deserves international attention. I came in and played, and there were a lot of songs in drop-D tuning. I brought my Fender Special, which is my first signature model – an amazing recording bass – and I was dropping the E string down to D. One thing led to another and we went out to do a tour. At the time I was taking lessons with [legendary session bassist] Reggie Hamilton.”
What elements of bass playing did you work on with Reggie?
“I wanted to know more about the neck. My playing was fine: I felt comfortable, and whenever I play live I play in anger and I dive in, but I wanted to dive deeper into playing with my fingers on my right hand a bit more, and seeing what that’s all about, so I listened to Booker T & The MGs and Donald ‘Duck’ Dunn and James Jamerson and Larry Graham. I’m a huge Prince fan, too, and I wanted to know how to play like that.
“Anyway, at the end of Velvet Revolver’s last tour in the UK, Reggie sent me out a modded Geddy Lee Jazz bass. It had a Hipshot Xtender, so I grabbed that bass for the Walking Papers tour, so I could just Hipshot between those drop-D songs and songs with standard tuning without switching basses.”
