Quoted from lostlumberjacks:
I hate to sound like one of the negative internet jerks, but this one doesn't make sense to me. The original was a masterpiece and would be hard to beat. Especially in the cost cutting, jacking price up era. Seems like there would be so many other great bands to make a theme after, Zeppelin, Queen, Pink Floyd, rush, etc... The jersey jack guys seem to know what there doing so I guess I'll reserve judgment. But, I don't like this choice if true, and I like GnR.
Quoted from Pinballomatic:
All great bands but none have Slash who is a big time pinhead.
Slash liked WOZ and owned one. He requested a DI be present back stage at 1 or more concerts (Joe at PinballStar brought 1 to at least 1 of his concerts). Maybe … just maybe … he approached JJP to make a GNR pin. Or mutual chit chat between them brought it up and Slash made it an easy license to get. Sometime that story will come out.
