I’ve always been impressed with just how much of a true rock song this is. Replace the acoustic guitars with distorted electrics and the sappy lyrics with something a little darker and all of a sudden you’re listening to something that would fit right into Zeppelin’s catalog.

In addition, there’s an interesting chapter in Slash’s autobiography that deals with the infamous GN’R/Metallica tour of 1992 in which Slash describes entering a hotel room to find Hetfield doing unspeakable things to a groupie. You’ll have to read it to get the details because I don’t want my site showing up in google results for the terms that are used to describe those acts.
