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?
