Guns N' Roses played this at their early shows and covered it on their 1988 live album G'N'R Lies
. In the summer of 1988, Guns N' Roses opened for Aerosmith on their Permanent Vacation
tour. By the end of the tour, "Sweet Child O' Mine
" was the #1 song in America and Guns N' Roses was the hottest band in the land. Aerosmith was peeved when Rolling Stone
dismissed them in favor of G N' R for their cover story, but the bands got along very well on the tour, as the Axl Rose and his bandmates showed great respect for their headliners. At the last show on the tour, Aerosmith brought Guns N' Roses on stage for an extended performance of "Mama Kin."
