John Petrucci originally recorded this cover of the Bon Jovi song as a practice tape for one of his guitar students before Images and Words was released. The demo tracks laid down by John were recorded with guitar and a drum machine only and no added vocals. Eventually Chris Collins, one of Dream Theater’s earliest vocalists, got hold of the tape and decided to add some vocals of his own to the background music. The final result is what you hear on the version available as an MP3 on various websites and P2P networks.
