Had an affair with Axl Rose for the song 'Rocket Queen'
This song is about a junkie prostitute who was once the love interest of Axl Rose. He was going to start a band with her called Rocket Queen, but she was too strung out. (thanks, nikki - sunderland, England)
If you listen closely towards the end, you can her frontman Axl Rose having sex in the studio with the woman who helped inspire the song. Axl explained: "She kind of kept me alive for a while. The last part of the song is my message to this person, or anybody else who can get something out of it. It's like there's hope and a friendship note at the end of the song. For that song there was also something I tried to work out with various people - a recorded sex act. It was somewhat spontaneous but premeditated; something I wanted to put on the record. It was a sexual song and it was a wild night in the studio. This girl we know was dancing; everyone was getting real excited. The night could have gotten really explosive, lots of trouble for everyone, and I thought wait a minute, how can we make this productive. And this is what we got." (thanks, Bobbie - c*ckeysville, MD - quote courtesy gnrsource.com)
While performing this song in St. Louis in 1991, Axl Rose jumped into the crowd and hit a fan who had a camera. The singer said, "Thanks to the lameass security I'm going home," then walked off stage. The rest of the band soon followed, causing a full-scale riot to break out. (thanks, Owen - Liverpool, England)
