We Will Roam

Album: Apocalyptic Love (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • Most of Apocalyptic Love was written on the road but Slash penned this song at home. He told MusicRadar.com: "I play both the rhythms on here. The first guitar that you hear in the intro is a baritone then I did it again on a regular guitar.

    It was written on a baritone, too – a Music Man that I have at home. It's a very spontaneous fingerpicking solo in We Will Roam. All solos should take on the life of the song. I think that's really important."
