VIDEO: Axl Rose That Metal Show preview clip

Axl Rose hits TV this Friday as part of VH1’s “National Metal Day” celebrations.

That Metal Show host Eddie Trunk interviewed Axl following Guns N’ Roses October 29 show in Miami…at about 6:30 a.m. the next morning.

The late/early hour of the session was due to Axl’s late start (again), as GNR kept Miami fans waiting 2 hours following Buckcherry’s set before showing up on stage around midnight, which meant the show didn’t end until after 3:00 a.m.

Trunk reports that during the interview, which included guitarist DJ Ashba, he did ask 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 shows), and more.

The first preview clip from the show has been posted; in it, Axl is asked about his perception of the biggest misconceptions about him.

“There’s too many things,” begins Axl. “It’s like two decades of people talking; most of the time, they’re talking of things somebody who had a bias started, or said. They could have said it jokingly.”

Check out the clip to hear more on this from Axl.

As a side-note, does anyone else notice how much Trunk sounds like Jimmy Kimmel?
