What did he "say" though?Originally posted by: Deadtrees
In one of the concerts or interviews, Axl Rose stated that he's not going to sing 'get in the ring' as his point has already been adressed in the studio just like 'One in the Million.'Originally posted by: sandorski
One in a Million isn't the bands mantra, it is a song about a fictional person. You don't watch a movie and assume it to be what the Writer assumes to desire/aspire too.
That's the way I always looked at it anyway.
Basically, what he said in 'Get in the Ring, One in the million', he really meant what he said.
Either way, I tend to ignore the Artists personal views and form my own interpretation of the lyrics. I view that song as the internal workings of the angst ridden skinhead. An example of darkness to be avoided.
