Slash has released a cover of "Where Do I Begin?," the theme from the 1970 drama, Love Story.
The Guns N' Roses guitarist recorded the instrumental cover as a tribute to his close friend Robert Evans, who produced the film, and passed away last year.
You can hear the cover in the clip above, and see a clip of Slash recording the tune in the studio below.
Of course, "Speak Softly Love," the theme from The Godfather – another film that Evans worked on – has been part of Slash's live solo spot with Guns N' Roses for decades.
