Rocket Queen is the last song on Guns N’ Roses debut album. Axl Rose, lead vocalist of the rock band wanted some pornographic sounds on Rocket Queen, so he brought a girl in and they had sex in the studio.
Axl Rose is known for many things, most prominently for being awesome and batshit crazy at the same time. The man is pure genius at what he does, but he has some issues he needs to seek help for.
Need you be reminded of that time he threw himself off the stage midway throughout a song and attacked one of his fans for taking a photo of him? How about the time he threatened to commit suicide unless his girlfriend that he physically and verbally abuses marries him?
What took the cake of his insane shenanigans however, is that the notoriously volatile frontman decided that it was imperative to include sex sounds in the recording for Rocket Queen.
Being the demented perfectionist that he is, of course Axl Rose would not settle for recording a girl generating fake moans into the mike. He had to have the real thing. So he banged a woman in the studio right then and there.
Talk about going all the way. Axl Rose enlisted the help of Adriana Smith, who was then the girlfriend of the band’s drummer, Steven Adler. Smith selflessly sacrificed herself for the purpose of making a good song. Nah.. not really! Smith isn’t that noble. She was just a slut who wanted to get back at Adler for cheating on her previously. Adler probably didn’t give a rat’s ass, most of these girlfriends of rock bands get traded around like Pokémon cards anyway.
Axl Rose wanted to do the nasty with her but couldn’t even be assed to arouse Smith himself. He had a harmonica player get naked with Smith to make her all horny and slippery, after which he stepped in, told the harmonica player to bugger off and promptly did the dirty deed with her with the mike recording.
Check out the video below, Adriana Smith’s authentic sex moans can be heard from the 2:40 mark.
