Nothing lasts forever...In the cold november rain

I love the epic, sweeping cinematic quality of this video.  I really think this is when Guns N' Roses were at their peak.  Though earlier songs like "Welcome to the Jungle" were simpler, harder, and purer, this one showed that their music could cross into different styles and be universal.  According to his biography, Axl Rose toiled for 8 years to write this song and ultimately locked himself in a room for weeks until he finished it.  In my opinion, all the struggle was worth it because this is a masterpiece.
