Marc Canter, a long-time friend of Slash who grew up together recollects Axl and Erin’s relationship.

“I remember when she first came around. She had a good job, was doing a little modeling and always had a little bit of money on her and took good care of Axl. Erin didn’t seem the type that would hang around with GNR. She looked like you know a step above you know like she didn’t look like a stripper.”

When the interviewer asked him what she thinks about this song, “Sweet Child O’ Mine.”

Erin Everly also featured in another Guns N’ Roses music video for the 1987 song “It’s So Easy.” Erin played a slightly raunchier role (to say the least) compared to her previous music video. The footage comprised mostly of S&M stuff between Axl and Erin but was unreleased at the time.

“Axl wanted to put in some S&M stuff that he shot with [ex-wife] Erin Everly, unbeknownst to me at the time; he quietly arranged this with Nigel Dick. When I went to look at the footage and sit with Nigel and start to get a basic edit on it, there was a lot of hanging Erin off the door, putting a ball gag in her, beating her and stuff.”

Four years after they had initially started dating, the couple finally got married on April 28, 1990. The couple exchanged vows during a wedding ceremony held at Cupid’s Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas. Allegedly, Axl wanted an annulment only 48 hours after the marriage!

Four months after the marriage, Erin Everly lost her baby due to a miscarriage, largely contributing to the breakdown of their relationship.

Around the same time as the miscarriage, the famous bottle incident happened with Axel’s neighbor. Which eventually led to part of the inspiration behind the song, “Right Next Door To Hell.”

Their marriage eventually ended 10 months after the Las Vegas wedding.

When talking about their relationship, Axl Rose stated, “Erin and I treated each other like crap… Sometimes we treated each other great because the children in us were best friends. But then there were other times when we just messed up each other’s lives completely.”
