MTV's report from the Camp Freddy show
GN'R related part of MTV's news article:

While Public Enemy were all seriousness (save for the unintentional comic relief derived from comments by the group's Flavor Flav, decked out in his prison issue orange jumpsuit), Camp Freddy, the supergroup cover band composed of the Cult's Billy Morrison, GN'R's Matt Sorum, Dave Navarro and Donovan Leitch, simply brought after-hours unadulterated fun. Joined by a host of guests, including actress Gina Gershon, Slash, Moby and Linda Perry, to name just a few, the band tore through classic rock covers such as David Bowie's "Jean Genie" and "Rebel Rebel," Black Sabbath's "Paranoid" and the Rolling Stones' "Brown Sugar." A tribute to the Clash featured Twisted Sister's Dee Snider singing "Tommy Gun" and Bush's Gavin Rossdale performing "(White Man) in Hammersmith Palais."

"Check this sh-- out, New York, we got the real Guns N' Roses here onstage," said Fuel's Brett Scallions, surrounded by Sorum, Slash, and bassist Duff McKagan, before they blasted into GN'R's "It's So Easy."

The cameo-spiked jam culminated with Melissa Etheridge joining Kid Rock for a cover of Bad Company's "Feel Like Makin' Love." Rock, emphasizing his expected lewdness, just wouldn't be himself if he didn't alter a few lyrics to reflect that he felt like making that sweet love with Etheridge. A sing-along cover of the Stooges' "I Wanna Be Your Dog" brought out the entire cast for the first encore, while the second one ended with Kid Rock straining his vocal chords on GN'R's "Paradise City" after everyone else had left the stage.
