Honestly, do you really care who wrote it at this point? The only real proof you have is that it came out of the Chinese Democracy sessions….end of discussion…anything else is our societies newfound concern with “conspiracy” theories and believing idiotic random message board trolls or any former band members who may not remember what was originally played or thought about.
Silliness over 2 songs that weren’t good enough for Chinese after 10 years of work on the album!
If this, then that…again, everyone was at fault from the label to management to the engineers/producers, and ultimately Axl.
The only people not at fault were all the new Gnr musicians who gave everything they had to make a GNR worthy album. Those guys and the fans got fucked. With the Best Buy deal CEO Rose parachuted out of the mess….the other guys were not so fortunate.
The problem is what is “dated”? Is I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry dated? The song carries the day for me and if we are going to talk about tracklisting, how does Think About You and Anything Goes fit on an album with 10 other perfect hard rock tracks. AFD only needed one power ballad and definitely didn’t need a Hollywood Rose cover.
Did you really want GNR to be the Sex Pistols? If that were the case, then you don’t get Coma, Locomotive, Civil War, Estranged, November Rain, Breakdown, etc….those epics and that “dated” sound made them the Led Zeppelin of our generation and not one and done SexPistols.
