Guns n Roses question.

Does anyone know who it is that recites this spoken word line during GNR's cover of Knockin on Heavens Door or who wrote it or where its from:

You just better start sniffing your own rank subjugation Jack
'Cause it's just you against your tattered libido
The bank and the mortician, forever man
And it wouldn't be luck, if you could get out of life alive

I've always wondered and cant seem to find any info.

Danke.

Josh Richman, not AXL.

Re: Guns n Roses question.

knew the answer by heart [since album came out ], that's how much I love UYI I & II albums... but here's confirmation

In 1991, Richman developed a professional relationship with Axl Rose from Guns N' Roses that led to him directing their video for a cover of Paul McCartney's "Live and Let Die". He is featured prominently in the Guns N' Roses home video titled, Making F@#$ing Videos Part 1 which chronicles his involvement in co-writing the promotional video for the GN'R hit "Don't Cry". Richman's involvement with the band landed him the inclusion of his photo in the booklet of their multi-platinum selling Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II albums. Richman had a small speaking role in the spoken word section of their cover of "Knockin' on Heaven's Door".
