The year was 1991, I was only ten years old but my god that year was amazing.
We saw the release of the greatest action movie of all time, Terminator 2: Judgement Day, and if Arnie's kick arse T2 cyborg tough guy wasn't enough, Guns N Roses released Use Your Illusion 1 and 2.
This song featured on album 2 and also featured in the T2 soundtrack. It was also responsible for starting a love affair with rock that would last a life time.
The Use Your Illusion world tour was the largest in the history of music, lasting 28 months and consisting of 194 shows. It was also well known for the insane antics of Axl Rose who would notoriously rock up late leading to riots, which caused $200,00 in damages and saw the band banned from St Louis for life.
From the moment I heard this song, I was GNR obsessed, and picked up every album they had and played my Walkman until the batteries were dead all while trying to bust out those Axl high pitched screeches.
I do apologise for Axl's white lycra shorts in the clip! W. Axl Rose: Waste Of Ammo.
