Nikki Sixx revealed that Guns N’ Roses nearly covered an early Mötley Crüe classic. reported that while promoting his new memoir, The First 21: How I Became Nikki Sixx, the Crüe bassist appeared on Sirius XM’s The Eddie Trunk Show and recalled, “After we took Guns N’ Roses out on tour, and they first put out ‘Welcome To The Jungle,’ or was it ‘Patience’ that was the next one? ‘Sweet Child. . . ‘? “I’m sorry, but I do remember going to the Rainbow, and I saw Axl (Rose) there and he jumped up, he said, ‘Hi, thanks for the tour,’ because now MTV was going to play ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine.'”

Sixx went on to recall, “It really gave them a shot, and I was super stoked for those guys. And then he told me that he always loved the (Mötley Crüe) song ‘Stick To Your Guns,’ and thought about covering it in GN’R or something. That’s pretty cool to hear, those guys thought that was cool, and that song has got its own little life, so to speak.”
