Used to Love Her

This song was written by Izzy Stradlin and Slash (no Axl Rose) and was from the 1988 album G N’ R Lies. I’ve always liked Guns N’ Roses but didn’t notice how different their songs were compared to their beta-crooning glam contemporaries of the late 80s and early 90s until only recently. The message is simple enough. And the tone is light enough that the whole act can be easily taken in jest.



Even in music, an admixture of anger, resentment and bitterness totally ruins the alpha frame. Shouting and thumping has its place, but is seldom necessary.

“I had to put her … six feet under … and I can still hear her complain!”

Imposing Your Frame, Writing Your Life Story

I want you to be in that story. You and I, we can write some of the plots together. Bold ones. Moving ones. Arousing ones. Details that will make other people’s lips smile and hearts sigh. Scenes that will stay in people’s minds for a long, long time … Follow my script. Don’t misbehave. I will feel bad if I have to replace you.”
