How much Rolling Stones influence can you pick on Guns n' Roses songs 3768e010

Every time I listen to the Stones I pick something that I have heard somewhere on a Guns n' Roses song

Specially on the ones written by Izzy

"I Used to Love Her (But I Had to Kill Her)" seems to be a clear "twist" on "I Used to Love Her (But It is All Over Now)" by the Stones. And it has a chord progression that is nearly identical to "Dead Flowers"!

There is a Stones song called "Pretty Beat Up" and I can't help but think that Izzy had that song title in his mind (consciously or not) when he wrote "Pretty Tied Up"

The line "You Could Be Mine" appears on "Emotional Rescue"

There is more...

Have you guys noticed that?

I'm sure there's some influence by the Stones (especially on Izzy).  Cool

It was Paul Buckmaster who did the string arrangements on some Stones tracks (on "Sticky Fingers") and guess who Axl had arranging some stuff on Chinese Democracy?  Surprised

Talkin' of the Rolling Stones, there's a new release of an old concert (1989) coming up and it features a guest appearance by both Axl & Izzy:
Track 11
Salt Of The Earth (featuring Axl Rose & Izzy Stradlin)
