Guns 'N' Roses covered this in 1994 for the move Interview With The Vampire
(the song appears at the end of the movie, which stars Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt and a young Kirsten Dunst). Their version hit #9 in England, and marked the first appearance of their new guitarist Paul Huge (rhymes with "boogie" - he later went by "Tobias"), who replaced Gilby Clarke. Axl Rose brought in Huge, and it caused considerable conflict in the band, which broke apart over the next few years. At one point, Matt Sorum
called Huge "the Yoko Ono of GNR."
In our 2013 interview with Gilby Clarke
, he recalls this recording as a signal that the band was over. "I knew that that was the ending because nobody told me about it," he said. "Officially I was in the band at that time, and they did that song without me. That was one of the last straws for me, because nobody had said anything to me and they recorded a song by one of my favorite bands. It was pretty clear I'm a big Stones fan, and they recorded the song without me. So I knew that was it."
The song ended up being the last one Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan recorded together. "If you've ever wondered what the sound of a band breaking up sounds like, listen to Guns N' Roses' cover of 'Sympathy for the Devil,'" Slash wrote in his memoir.
