"We got into doing these huge production videos and by 'November Rain' it was too much, just too involved. At the end of the day it was a great video but that's when I started realizing that it was getting out of hand." - Slash
"I said, 'God, listen to the tom toms on that (''Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me''). And Axl goes, 'Yeah, that's cool. So epic.' I go, 'What if I use that sort of a phrase as pieces of the song, almost like a melody that would work into the song structure.'" - Matt Sorum (drummer)
"When we were doing that EP for L.A. Guns, like in 1983, Axl was playing 'November Rain' on piano. Way back then. It was the only thing Axl knew how to play, but it was his. He'd go: 'Someday this song is gonna be really cool.'' - Tracii Guns (guitarist)
