SLASH: Sweet Child o’ Gold Mine
Slash says “Sweet Child o’ Mine” has brought him riches — and mental pain.
In an interview with Metro the guitarist says that the Guns n’ Roses number-one smash has been his most lucrative song. The problem is the amount of bad versions he’s had to sit through over the years. Slash explains, “There are some really good instrumental versions for the piano or violin, but I’ve been horrified by some muzak versions. I’ve been sitting in a doctor’s office thinking ‘that sounds familiar’ and then realizing it’s someone’s interpretation of what I’ve written — that can be a creepy feeling.”
