Songfacts®:

  • Slash used his live guitar - the Gibson Slash Appetite Les Paul - on this towering rocker as his trusty Derrig, the guitar he played on Appetite For Destruction, was in the shop for repairs.
  • Slash told MusicRadar.com: "The outro riff I play at the end of this was a very spontaneous thing – I made it up on the spot because we couldn't think of an ending! Whatever the first idea is when I'm working on a song that's the one that stays. Then I'll play it every time we rehearse and it'll start to take on a life of its own."
