Ex-Guns N' Roses' guitarist Slash has defended recruiting Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie to take up vocals on a new version of his former band's hit 'Paradise City'.

The guitarist has also roped in Cypress Hill for the new version, which features on the b-side of a single he recently released in Japan.

Writing on his Twitter account, Twitter.com/slashhudson, he wrote: "Until now, not too many people have heard Fergie sing rock & roll but she sings it better than most dudes I know. She's a screamer at heart."

It is unclear whether the track will appear on his forthcoming solo album 'Slash & Friends', due in early 2010. The record features a host of guest musicians, including Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea, Dave Grohl and Alice Cooper.
