You can keep stating that as fact, but it's just not true. Also, he didn't write any of the Coma lyrics as you claimed.

Speaking of Locomotive, was it always titled "Locomotive (Complicity)" ?

I don't remember ever seeing it but it shows up on streaming services like that all of a sudden.

And speaking of Locomotive on streaming services:

I have rental cars for work travel at least once, sometimes twice per week. I do a lot of driving, so the sound is important to me. With every single rental car I get into, I connect me phone to the sound system, then I bring up Locomotive on Spotify and blast it while I EQ the sound in the car. I make sure to do all of this before I move the car at all, lol.

I've done the same thing haha. I'll play some GnR and some SMKC and that's usually enough to go by.

Matts intro at the start would be a good factor of how to set the right eq.

Yep, I usually let it run until the first line of the lyrics start, then I'm good.

WStill haven’t found it ? U have to dig deep - Slash didn’t admit to the lyrics but Axl said it back in the day 

 

Axl couldn’t find the lyrics for the song - that’s been documented

Ooh, the suspense is killing me! Why can't you provide us with the documentation or what Axl said?

Lol, typical people who have lost. Try and hint things and want someone to find it and thinks he has the answer but is "holding it back" because he wants you to find something that never can be found. So in his mind he hasnt lost yet.

It’s not that big a thing that Slash wrote some lyrics - 

He wrote for Snakepit- Smkc — he never wants credit for it - listen to Snakepit - 50 percent of those lyrics are wrote about Axl 

 

Slash Had Coma And Locomotive mostly  done when he brought it to Axl 

If u listen to Coma - half the song is about Slash being in a drug induced Coma and speaking about it - The breakdown is all Slash lyrics 

Axl response is maybe we will be better off without u anyway 

Axl was never in a coma but Slash was 

love this topic

I’m not holding anything back man - it’s a fact Slash wrote lyrics 

Like I said I AM a day 1 fan 

Every magazine article I read - every interview on tv during the recordings of the Illusions 

Never knew that Slash writing lyrics was such a big deal

Except that Axl was in a coma.

Axl: There's this song called 'Coma' […]. I started to write about when I OD'ed four years ago, and the reason why I OD'ed was because of stress, I couldn't take it, and I just grabbed this bottle of pills (?) in an argument and gulped it down and I ended up in a hospital. But I liked that I wasn't in a fight anymore and I was fully concious that I was leaving. I liked that. But then I go, all of a sudden my real thoughts, though, were that 'Okay, you've haven't toured enough, the record's not gonna last, it's gonna be forgotten this and that, you've got work to do get out of this,' and I went 'No!' and I woke up, you know, pulled myself out of it. But in the describing of that some people could take it wrong and think it means to go and put yourself into a coma, so, it's a little tricky and I'm still playing with the words to figure out to, like, show some hope in there [Famous Last Words, MTV, 1990].

Axl: I just got out of the hospital a little while ago, 'cause I partied too much one night, blacked out, got into it with the cops, got stun-gunned, was knocked out, went into a coma for a coupl’a days and woke up strapped to my bed, plugged into a catheter [San Francisco Chronicle, August 30, 1987].

And there is no denying Axl wrote the lyrics to Coma

Axl: At times l enjoy writing, and other times just hate it because it's definitely having to go back and experience some pain and express how you really feel. Sometimes the writing ends up being cathartic in the long run, but, like, writing "Coma" on "Use Your Illusion I" was so heavy I'd start to write and I'd just pass out. I tried to write that song for a year, and couldn't. l went to write it at the studio and passed out. l woke up two hours later and sat down and wrote the whole end of the song, like, just off the top of my head. It was like, don't even know what's coming out, man, but it's coming. l think one of the best things that I've ever written was maybe the end segment of the song "Coma." It just poured out. I thanked Slash for that, because I used to curse him, going, "Man, that son of a bitch has written this thing and I've got to write to it and don't know what to write." It was so hard; it made me feel like, "l don't know how to write, I should just quit." (Axl laughs) But I finally did write it, and l ended up feeling a lot better about a lot of situations that l expressed In that song [Interview Magazine talks to Axl Rose, 1992].

Slash: Like "Coma," I just wrote all the music from one end to the other. I don't know how, it was just the way I heard it... that arrangement. Axl adapted the lyrics to that [Interview CD, 1992]

“ Axl Adapted the lyrics to the music “ U gotta remember this was 1989 - 1994 

Axl is never gonna admit - Slash wrote some lyrics - I’m not saying Slash wrote the whole song - just added lyrics to it 

Slash never takes credit for lyrics and probably never will - That’s too much ego 4 him and 2 Personal
