Working With Mutt Lange

"With Mutt Lange, whoís our producer on all those records, he tried to make a classic hybrid. He tried to fuse pop with hard rock. As we know, hard rock is very machismo, and itís got a beat in your chest, and it attracts girls. If youíre of that age, and you got that thing going, an infectious pop song or a groove, mission accomplished. Mutt Lange, he was a genius. He was trying to create something different."

Guns N' Roses

"I love Guns Ní Roses, I got to say. Always did. I think itís a shame that they broke up in the first place. So, no, I donít think they were pale imitations. I think they were real. I remember when the first album came out. I remember meeting a couple of the guys, and they were genuinely into it, and they had a sound that was really needed. It was very aggressive."
