Slash: ''Sweet Child O' Mine' Is One of the Gayest Things You Can Write'
Former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash was recently asked to single out the song from either GN'R or Velvet Revolver he explicitly hates.

Being a bit surprised by the question, the axeman told WEBN (via Blabbermouth), "I can't think of a song that I actually completely hate from either band. You know, I mean, maybe there's some songs that I like more than others.

"But I'll tell you one thing ... I didn't hate it, but I wasn't fond of 'Sweet Child O' Mine,'" Slash continued. "And that gives you a good idea of how credible my opinion is ... The actual riff itself I love, but the song itself..."

Getting to the thick of it, the guitarist added, "You know, Guns N' Roses was always a real hardcore, sort of, AC/DC kind of hard rock band with a lot of attitude. If we did any kind of ballads, it was bluesy. This was an uptempo ballad.

"That's one of the gayest things you can write," he said. "But at the same time, it's a great song - I'm not knocking it - but at the time, it just did not fit in with the rest of our, sot of, schtick. And, of course, it would be the biggest hit we ever had."

In one of the previous reports, Slash also singled out "Sweet Child O' Mine" as the most lucrative song he ever wrote.

In other Slash news, the guitarist posted another "Real to Reel" studio update, sharing more positive vibes and killer riffs. The studio series keeps setting the expectation higher, so keep your eyer open for this one, we might be in for a record of the year.
