Poison's "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" Played By An Actual Rose Bush

When rockers are in a melancholy mood they turn to songs like Poison's "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" for comfort, but sometimes even Bret Michael's sweet voice can't make us feel again.

We need something that literally stings to show us what it's like to love and lose, and since we're talking about roses then a thorny branch will definitely do the trick.

Michael Ridge wanted to unleash the true pain and heartache hidden deep inside the grooves of that classic Poison single, so he attached a contact mic to a branch from a rose bush and let the thorns draw out the tears.

Why does the turntable have that odd precession as it spins?
