Can't help but think that if this song was Guns N' Roses and had Axl singing it, it would be considered a 'Classic' Guns song.

Incredible song.

I feel that it could have been 10 times the song it was. With better lyrics, more interesting structure, Axl's melodies and more lead guitar in the front.

Still a cool song tho.

Not according to Axl. He said Slash didn't let him work on the song, even tho Axl showed interest when Slash played it for him.

I've never been on the "FTP would sound so much better with Axl" wagon. I think Axl's vocals don't suit the song at all. Scott did a damn good job, as does Myles (acoustic version especially)

Axl would have ruined the song.

Part of the beauty of the song is its simplicity and that melody.

Axl would have had horns/keyboard/pianos/orchestras and 10 other layers of shit added on that would have taken away from what makes the song great.

The song is perfect now...Scott really nailed that one. The guy writes killer vocal melodies.

I don't know about that. I mean, look what Axl did for SCOM. It was an amazing, simple Slash riff, and Axl knew exactly what to do to help make it a classic.

Axl has a talent to take something and make it much better imo.

Even if Axl has that Queen over indulgent thing going on, the chemistry he had with Slash would probably have allowed him to make Fall To Pieces a Guns classic.

I wonder if this was during the time Axl didn't have the courtesy to show up to rehersals at a reasonable time.

I think that Fall To Pieces is a great example of what has been missing from a lot of Slash's post-Guns work.

Lovely melodies have been replaced by boring riffs.

not at all, between FTP and Nothing To Say or Starlight, I'd take either of the latter.

Was listening to this for the 1st time in a couple years(at least) and had forgotten just how fuckin great it is. Slash's solo orgasmic.

Pretty much a masterpiece IMO, yet so was YGNR and LTA. An amazing record. rock2

One of Slash best post Guns songs IMHO.

The original version with Scott is great but if there is one song Myles kills on it is that one.

Go listen to the pro recorded version from the Melbourne show from the Slash solo tour.

Myles is amazing and the guitars are in your face.

Best version I have ever heard
