Going out with a bang

"By all accounts, this single, which was taken from the Interview With The Vampire: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, marked the end of the Guns n' Roses we used to know. Apparently the band members were barely speaking at the time and recorded all of their parts separately. Axl cut Slash's guitar parts and replaced them with someone else's. That was all she wrote for the legendary band, which in the years that followed pretty much became Axl and some guys.
The band's cover of the Rolling Stones' Sympathy For the Devil may have been their last track as a unit, but at least they went out with a bang. This is a killer cover song, with Axl sounding every bit like the serpent in the Garden of Eden as he recounts his various misdeeds throughout history. I've never really cared for the Stones, but this is a great rock song, and Guns n' Roses definitely did it justice.
The CD single also contains a symphonic track - Escape to Paris - from the film score. I own the movie soundtrack and love the score, but including this song on the single is just an excuse to hit the skip button and listen to Sympathy again.
