The coronavirus pandemic has led to a lot of unusual artist collaborations, but maybe none quite as bizarre as this one between Jerry Cantrell and Slash.

In a recent Instagram post, the Alice in Chains electric guitar player, sporting an “amazing quarantine beard,” reported that after discovering a rattlesnake had taken up permanent residence on his LA property, “I called a buddy of mine who I knew knew a little something about snakes.”

That buddy, of course, was Slash. The Guns guitarist connected Cantrell with LA Zoo worker Ian, who promptly removed the “heated up” rattler from Cantrell’s property.

As Cantrell wrote in the accompanying caption, “Snake problem? Who you gonna call? Slash of course, duh!?!

“Thanks for introducing me to Ian from the LA zoo who came over and expertly removed my unwanted guest, and relocated him to a more suitable location. Glad we didn’t have to kill him.”
