I have always liked this song, but the new, leaked version is really beautiful.

In a new episode of the Banned podcast with Rick Dunsford (ep. 24, roughly 15 minutes in) he speaks of how he talked to Tommy about the two demo tracks and 2019 leaks.

• Tommy wasn't familiar with the locker leaks but after learning about it he said it was ridiculous.
• The name of the "Tommy Demo #1" is "Ten Percenter", likely referring to an agent, who takes 10% from a client's earnings.
• He also said that he's trying to get both "Ten Percenter" and "Going Down" back from GNR to release on a future solo album and that he doesn't think GNR is interested in using the songs anymore.
• He prefers the stripped down version of "Going Down" on the Village disc to the newer Bumblefoot version. If he releases the song it will sound more like the original.

Tommy apparently didn't have any versions of the songs, so Rick had to send them to him, which seems to line up with the band fearing leaks (lol).

I'll say what I always say about GD - it sounds 'Earthy' to me, whatever that means, lol
