I heard an old country song called Wild Weekend by Bill Anderson

It's a song by Bill Anderson from 1968. I had never heard it up until a few days ago. I immediately thought of the similarity to Mr. Brownstone. I'm not sure which is cooler: If Axl got the idea from this song or if they are similar by pure coincidence.

Anyway, I just thought it was neat. :)

Sometimes things are in the subconscious. The song would've been out when Axl was 4 or 5, and he & Izzy prob. grew up with parents that listened more to country & religious music than to rock.

A lot of songwriters worry the song they're writing came from somewhere else. The intro's "Bo Diddley", which Slash mentioned in interviews before.

I'd say it's inspiration, not plagiarism ;)

There's a big difference and the songs are different enough to be considered so. Everything comes from somewhere doesn't it?

I come from a land down under
