    Slash has great admeration for Axl, but his over baring control freak crap tore them apart, he told a cable show he would take Axl over velvet revolver singer for ability but can't see it happening due to the situation!
    I take that as forget it folks gnr is dead!
    So we get what we had many times over two power houses doing their own s*t and we as fans benefit to see both unfold in time.
    Intersting Ozzy was up for this s*t kicking when Slash has been so guarded on the whole subject.
    Ozzy you did a great job!

    Axle was holding back Slash's genius. I hated the singing in all Gn'are stuff and these new songs prove that Slash is huge. He makes songs a thousand times better than anything Gn'are did. And if you can't figure out from these lyrics that Gn'are are finished, then you can't read. Woohoo! Slash rules!
    Btw Kevin Churko; Ozzy Osbourne; S. Hudson are credited as composers on the album for this song.

    1. Axl rose and Slash will never ever get together again, ever, it makes me very sad but it's true
    2. All songs(well, most, but this one included) where written by slash, so this is not told from Ozzy's perspective
    cuz Slash says that only current and former gnr members have the right to rant on axl, and gets really pissed when some1 else does.
    3. This is an absolutely beautiful song and it's freaking genious
    and from the line "a loaded gun jammed by a rose" it's pretty clear it's about gnr.
