VIDEO: Watch Axl Rose That Metal Show interview

We’ve been hearing about if for weeks, and the event finally aired on VH1’s self-proclaimed “National Metal Day.”

On 11/11/11, the station ran a special edition of That Metal Show, as Eddie Trunk sat down with Axl Rose for a rare, extended interview.

The interview took place in Miami following the GNR show on October 29, which meant it happened at about 5:30 AM the next morning….since the midnight GNR set wrapped up around 3:00 AM.

Teaser clips from the show have surfaced to attract viewers, and we’ve played a bunch of them here, and I have to say the conversation flows much better in real time than the edited pieces.

Some of the most interesting bits, to me, are talk about the “Appetite For Destruction” cover, on why videos have yet to be done for “Chinese Democracy” and, of course, the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame discussion.

Check it out…
