This song, along with all along the watchtower by Jimi Hendrix, are probably the best covers I've ever heard. Coincidental l y , they were both written by bob Dylan. However, I wouldn't say that they're better than Dylan's versions, they're just different.

It would be cool if g&r they would do show like . Motley Crue did when they went out but g& r lost it axle Roses does not have it any more an I grew up with them

amazing song. this version is good. but, i'm sorry, it ain't dylan. his is the definitive version. like so many others of his songs. every one who covers them just doesn't do it the way it's supposed to be. dylan's nasty voice just does dylan like no one else. that's why he's dylan and guns and roses is just guns and roses. you know what i mean?
