Slash told Musicradar.com
: "It was a piece of music I couldn't let go of. I finally got to the point where I had a complete arrangement and had written string parts on keyboard and recorded a demo. Even the engineer who I was doing the demos with was sick of hearing that song!
I thought Adam wasn't going to be sure about it. But I went to his house and he actually liked it a lot and he wrote the perfect vocal for it. He sings like an angel on it, and it doesn't sound like Maroon 5 but you can tell it's his voice. I think people will really appreciate the way it sounds."
