Slash: ''Sweet Child O' Mine' Is the Most Lucrative Song I Wrote'
Having a plethora of hit numbers to choose from, Slash singled out Guns N' Roses classic "Sweet Child O' Mine" as the most profitable song he ever wrote.

"It was always about albums rather than singles but I'd guess 'Sweet Child O' Mine' because it's the most covered," the guitarist explained to Metro.

"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," he said.

Naming GN'R's 1989 Dallas show at the Cowboys Stadium as his worst gig ever, dubbing it a "huge disaster in front of 65,000 people," Slash focused on some of the misconceptions people have of him. Directly asked about the matter, the axeman replied:

"That I was limited to the image of me as a crazy loser junkie. People were a little intimidated by that. It was a narrow-minded idea of who I was but at the same time I gave that impression during interviews."

Slash is currently busy working on a new studio record, marking a follow-up of 2012's "Apocalyptic Love."
