The work is based the first interview Axl Rose gave in 20 years. In it Axl reveals Gun's n' Roses record label’s boss, David Geffen, talked Axl out of using an image of NASA’s Challenger exploding as the album cover their 1987 album Appetite For Destruction because it was in bad taste.
This work is a reimagining of the album cover design based on Axl's original idea. The video is Axl onstage during the Use Your Illusion Tour. Axl was doing intensive past-life-regression therapy with a therapist who was touring with him. These therapy sessions were why the band were sometimes hours late on stage. Axl would also work through some issues on stage between songs.
The video features the interview with Axl Rose where he reveals David Geffen talked him out of using an image of the Challenger explosion as the album cover of their forthcoming album Appetite For Destruction.
