This epic track was born out of something Slash started doing during his guitar solo on the live shows. He told MusicRadar.com: "It turned into an entire song and there's an extended outro solo and an extended fingerpicking intro. It's probably the most guitar-focused song on the record."
Speaking with the Irish Times, Slash responded to suggestions that the song's intro sounds like it was inspired by Bach's "Toccata and Fugue in D Minor." "In this really interesting day and age of social networking, it started with just one person who said it was a Bach thing," he said. "I had no idea it sounded like a Bach thing, and then everybody asked me about it. I think it is just the style of the arpeggio. Still, there are worse musicians to be compared to than Bach."
"I'm proud of the song," he continued, "I always liked it. It was one of the songs that came up at the tail-end of the recording when we were in pre-production."
