Axl Rose tapes hour-long interview with VH1’s That Metal Show

Axl Rose has taped an hour-long interview with VH1’s That Metal Show following the Guns N’ Roses show in Miami Saturday night.

The session will air on November 11 as part of VH1’s “National Metal Day” (11-11-11).

TMS host Eddie Trunk reports that during the interview, which included guitarist DJ Ashba, he asked Axl about the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame situation (band is eligible and nominated; we’ll know mid-December whether or not they get in); new music, his lateness, this lineup, playing with Duff McKagan (Axl said Loaded will open some shows), and more.

Trunk kept fans posted on Twitter about the unfolding plans to secure the Axl interview after the gig, which he says GNR didn’t start until midnight. At one point, Trunk wrote that the restless crowd were “now booing loud because [of the] late start.” Openers Buckcherry finished their hour-long set at 10pm, and Axl made fans wait two full hours before he felt like getting on stage.

GNR finished their set just after 3:00 am, and it had been a crazy long day for Trunk. “5:30 AM, got to this arena at 3P yesterday. Still here.... If this interview happens I might dose off for the first time ever in an intv.”

Shortly before 7:00 a.m., Trunk tweeted, "Axl Rose has just done an hour interview for TMS [That Metal Show]. History made! Will air 11/11 on VH1 Classic! Get ready!"
