    If this would’ve been the album that came out instead of the spaghetti incident back in 93 I think Guns N’ Roses will still be relevant. But don’t take this the wrong way I still believe Guns N’ Roses is one of the all-time greatest bands Lord knows all the previous albums are the soundtrack to my teenage years

    The original guitar solo was by Brian May, but Axl decided not to use it.

      @Madness Official Yeah he's right. Brian May didn't know that his solo wasn't on the album. He came in to lay the solo on the track because Axl was having a tough time with the album so he called May and after they talked he did the original solo to "Catcher in the Rye" but Axl didn't use it.

      Madness Official are you sure? I thought he recorded it in 99, then in the final stages he saw that axl removed it. He said “shame. I was proud of it” at least that’s what I heard. You might be right

    • Madness Official

      No, Brian thought his solo was overproduced, so he decided to delete it

    I wish things could have worked out differently for the original lineup years ago, but what's done is done. Disagree if you will, but Axl Rose is a creative genius. It took way too long to record this album because he's a perfectionist, probably even O.C.D. , but there are great lyrics on here !!!

    When all is said and done
    We're not the only ones
    Who look at life this way
    That's what the old folks say
    But every time I see them
    Makes me wish I had a gun
    If I thought that I was crazy
    Well I guess I'd have more fun
    (Guess I'd have more fun)
    Oooh, the Catcher In The Rye Again
    Won't let ya get away from him
    (Tomorrow never comes)
    It's just another day...
    Like today
    You decide
    Cause I don't have to
    And then they'll find
    And I won't ask you
    At anytime
    Or long hereafter
    If the cold outside's
    As I'm imagining
    It to be
    Oh, no
    Lana nana na na na
    Lana nana na nana
    Ooh, the Catcher In The Rye Again
    Won't let ya get away from him
    (Tomorrow never comes)
    It's just another day...
    Like today
    When all is said and done
    We're not the only ones
    Who look at life this way
    That's what the young folks say
    But every time I see them
    Makes me wish I had a gun
    If I thought that I was crazy
    Well I guess I'd have more fun
    (Guess I'd have more fun)
    Cause what used to be's
    Not there for me
    And ought to for someone
    That belongs...
    Like I do
    Oh, no
    Not at all
    On an ordinary day
    Not in an ordinary way
    All at once the song I heard
    No longer would it play
    For anybody
    Or anyone
    That needed comfort from somebody
    Needed comfort from someone
    Who cared
    To be
    Not like you
    And unlike me
    And then the voices went away from me
    Somehow you set the wheels in motion
    That haunt our memories
    You were the instrument
    You were the one
    How a body
    Took the body
    You gave that boy a gun
    You took our innocence
    Beyond our stares
    Sometimes the only thing
    We counted on
    When no one else was there

    Did Mark Chapman (John Lennon’s murderer) listened to this track, considering it has the same title of his favorite book?

  • aboutthetruthmedia organization

    I prefer the Brian May version. Cleaner guitar solos.

      @Lang Hansen Yeah you're right. I checked via a search engine. It seems bizare. You seem to have sanitize what the event, because when you read the full quote apparently it's all based around 1 note when he was doing outtakes in the studio . I don't understand why they've done this, but at the end of the day I still prefer it to the final release version on the album. To be honest, I always felt the guitar solo sounded nice but a bit conservative. To me it's good enough despite the controversy. Thanks for showing me. Even after the emotion I had in my post, I feel ok about it to be honest. But why would anyone want to mess with Brian May? It's like telling Roger Federer or Novak Djokovic how to play tennis!

      PS: It just shows you we can't have trust in anything!

      I couldn’t get into it. Kept waiting for something to happen but it doesn’t. All he does is complain and it’s considered a classic. Maybe I should read it again

    Just finished reading the book because of this song, it's a classic, I know, but I would have never reached for it, had it not been for GN'R - and I'm grateful for this. This song makes a fascinating epilogue btw.

      I also got into the book because of this song. Thank you to the one who commented the quote from Axl and his disliking of the book, I did not know that was his intentions with the song. I couldn’t disagree with him more though. Interesting enough, when I read the book the first time, I was 15 and related to the Holden character so much. Tried reading it again when I was in my early twenties and I couldn’t stand the main character. Thought he was to whiny and pessimistic all the time. Guess that shows what age can do to you. The book is genuinely annoying to me now.

      Agreed. Currently reading the last chapter, nearly done with the book. I relate very well with Holden (Not the prostitute, drugs, drinking, or "sex" parts)
