From "Swamp Song - Believe In Me"


I don't really need the ego
Of being a pop star
Playing rock & roll makes
Me stand hard & tall
Once an old man with blood on
his hands
Said "Pick up my guitar and
use it"
The he took it from me said "Let
Your soul run free"

People get so stuck on getting
their name in lights
Fuckin' some famous model
Keepin' their assholes tight

So I played that guitar
Til my dick got hard
I fucked that bitch night & day
Time went by and that old man
died
Got a note "Remember what I
said"
Brought flowers to his grave
Laid 'em down, and my fingers
Started to bleed I was finally free
I was finally free yeah

People get so stuck on getting
their
Name in lights

Fuckin' some famous model
Keepin' their assholes tight

Uh uh uh
Don't get me wrong I ain't singin'
This song bout bros who truly
deserve it

But money & fame is for those
truly lame. The ones who need
to get their heads lit

So I play my guitar, Yeah I played
that bitch all night
Long
Yeah I played my guitar I was
finally free

So keep your head clear don't
believe what you hear
Just play what comes from your
soul
But if money & fame is your
fuckin' game

Then I hope you die fat & old.



Is this directed to Axl?
If not, then I think it should be...
Seems like he was as sick of the prima donna attitude as the rest of them
not surprising reallly, all things considered...
But, was this track directed at Axl? has it ever been confirmed?

I loved all the solo albums, Izzy, Duff, Slash and Gilby's at the time, but I played this one recently, and couldn't help
but think this was aimed at Axl, am I wrong?......

He said "pop star", it's more about short sighted goals of being rich and famous, and not being dedicated as an artist, people who take shortcuts and look like the part of a rock star, but have no heart and soul.

Anything to do with money and greed would be directed at Axl, as he called him greedy in the book.

Duff's wife is a model, and could be about Axl as much as it could be about Scott Weiland, his ex Mary was a model, but it's more about one's motivation to be rich and famous.

I actually always thought it sounded like Axl singing this part.

"So keep your head clear don't
believe what you hear
Just play what comes from your
soul
But if money & fame is your
fuckin' game
Then I hope you die fat & old."

Slash, Love ya man but the Top Hat has become a cheesy cliche.. Just wear a ball cap or something and bust it out for the encore if you have to.
