Clint Mansell taler om Slash i interviewet her.

Mickey: “Axl Rose is a good friend of mine and actually, when I used to box, I used to come out to “Sweet Child O’ Mine,” but on our $5.5 million budget we couldn’t afford that music so he gave it to me. So that was something really special.”

Clint Mansell: “We just thought it would be interesting, given that the character’s favorite music is rock — metal — music. We wanted that sensibility and wanted to bridge the gap between score and source. Slash is one of the world’s great guitar players, and he was up for trying something different than what he’s known for, but he could also bring his sensibility to what I was trying to do.”
