After a few weeks of hype, Season 9 of VH1 Classic's 'That Metal Show' kicked off last night (which isn't its regular night, mind you) with the mother of all interviews and on National Metal Day. The camera-shy, elusive W. Axl Rose agreed to a sit down with Eddie Trunk and co. in the early morning hours in Miami. He was rather candid and shared his thoughts on his lateness and lawsuits. He also revealed his original idea for the 'Appetite for Destruction' cover.
Eddie Trunk Offers a Preview of Axl Rose Interview
Guns N' Roses members are chatting away about the status of the band with local newspapers as the band traipses across the country on tour, playing at arenas. First, guitarist DJ Ashba revealed to the Omaha World Herald that his boss, the often temperamental and tardy W. Axl Rose, is "an amazing friend" who is "loyal and honest" and who treats him like gold. That's a bit of a contrast to Rose's public persona, but Ashba appears to love the man her performs with and who writes his checks! He also shared some news about upcoming GN'R material!
We're still a long ways away from a full-scale Guns N' Roses reunion, since Slash would still rather stomp on the olive branch than hand it to frontman Axl Rose, but some factions of the Guns camp are making nice. Rose will be sharing stages in the near future with former Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan, revealed Rose in his interview with 'That Metal Show' set to air Nov. 11.
It's Axl Rose's world and we all just live in it and play by his rules, even in 2011. Apparently, the temperamental and interview-shy Rose, who is famous for his tardiness and doing things on his clock and whenever the hell he feels like it, granted an hour-long interview to Eddie Trunk of VH1 Classic's 'That Metal Show' in the wee hours of this morning (Oct. 30). The interview took place at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Fla., around 7 in the morning!
More fan-shot footage of Axl Rose has turned up on the Internet, pulling in viewers who are following the singer's journey as Guns N’ Roses continue on their first major tour in years. The latest clip to pop up online shows Rose strolling around onstage during a GN'R gig in Mexico City -- and taking a nasty fall, much to the amusement of many laughing fans in the crowd.
So, the last video we saw of Axl Rose was the Guns N' Roses frontman allegedly entering an airport in Rosaria, Argentina, a little disgruntled, but it seems the tide has changed. As Guns N’ Roses continue the South American leg of their world tour, a new video has surfaced, this one showing a jovial Rose cajoling with fans at what appears to be a bar at the Hotel Sheraton in Asunción, Paraguay.
