Speaking to Ultimate-Guitar.com
, McKagan recalled the recording of this song: "We all played in the same room, Slash, Dave and I. We went down to the studio. I hadn't heard the song and neither had Dave, so I went down there, and listened to the song. Slash had a guitar, and he played it so we could watch. None of us read music, so you gotta just watch the guy play. We went in the room, and we hashed around the song for about forty-five minutes maybe. We then just started recording, and I think we were in and out of there in a matter of two, maybe three hours. It was recorded pretty quick; we caught that energetic first or second take, and we nailed it pretty good.
It was great playing with Dave. I've never played with him before; we're friends, but I had just never played bass with him also playing drums. It was a great experience, really fun. The three of us playing together was really fun, a lot of laughs."
