  3. Izzy's first post-Guns album. Anyone a fan? Would any of the songs have made good GNR tracks?
  4. Post Guns N' Roses Izzy Stradlin very eloquently explains how he discovered peace of mind after leaving the band. This was 1993 and he was already comfortable with his new role as leader of Izzy Stradlin & The Ju Ju Hounds. Particularly intriguing was his characterization of Axl -- even as of '93 - as the very embodiment of the kind of stress that he drove him from Guns. Osamu Masui interviewed and Steve Harris interpreted on Sept. 22, 1993. __ For those who care and those who haven't listened to this. It's a cool interview. Izzy talks about his departure, the reason he rejoined Guns for a few shows, why he left after that and finally, Ju Ju Hounds. * Thanks to John Bonham at GNFNR, Will at GNREvolution and lola2010 at Shuffle It All

  13. New Dizzy Reed interview Oct 25th, 2012

    VEGAS.com had a chance to talk to Reed about the group’s upcoming residency and what it means to the band to be playing in the Entertainment Capital of the World. Here’s what he had to say: What made the band decide to do this residency in Vegas at the Hard Rock? “Vegas is a fun town, a great place to play. We love playing there. Great atmosphere, very festive, so it seemed like a good idea.” What does the band have planned for the residency shows? “We’ll do a lot of drinking, a lot of gambling, hope to play some golf during the day and yeah and play at night.” Are fans in Vegas going to see anything different with your residency shows than they would when the band is on tour? “There’s definitely going to be some cool surprises, and I don’t want to give anything away. The main thing is that they’re going to see a kickass rock and roll show. That’s what we deliver, and we do it every night. That’s where it’s at; that’s the bottom line.” What about your set list? What do you have planned? “Well, we have a shitload of songs worked up, and we have for a while. You know the thing with this band and the way it’s always been with this band is there’s never really a set set list. It’s just more of a guide. … We have a huge repertoire, and we’ll be pulling stuff from that every night?” When you’re not performing are you going to be staying in Vegas? “As far as I know, we’re going to be hanging in Vegas most of the time, the whole time probably. I may have to come home maybe once or twice just to check on the place, but for the most part we’ll hanging there. So, you’ll see us around out on the golf course, in the casinos, the nightclubs – that’s what Vegas is all about.” What does it mean to you that 2012 is also the 25th anniversary of “Appetite for Destruction?” “The whole anniversary thing is pretty amazing to me – it just makes me feel kind of old. I’ve been in this band a long time. That’s a lifetime for a lot of people, but it’s cool that it’s still going strong. It’s great to be a part of it. Like I said, this is just a kickass band, and we definitely do it all justice.” Why do you think that album continues to be so iconic today? “Today I think music is so much more about the production and the bells and the whistles and the tones and the sounds, who won ‘American Idol.’ It’s more about the presentation, but at the end of the day if you can sit down and play a song on your acoustic guitar or on the piano and it still sounds great, that’s what it’s all about. I think that record comes from that period of time when you had to have that.” I know you joined the band after that album came out, but what is it like for you to play those songs for fans 25 years after ‘Appetite’ was released? “Well, you know, we’ve been playing a lot of those songs for a long time, but when I first joined the band, I was a big fan of that record. It’s always a treat for me to add what I can to those songs. I always think it’s good to twist things around a little bit when you play things live. To me, it’s always kind of disappointing to go see a band and they play their record exactly the same as the record from beginning to end. It’s a little boring… To add anything creatively and to help deliver it to people that’s always a treat. That’s why we do this.” Are you working on any new music now? “We’ve been kicking some ideas around. We have some time off in Vegas. Hopefully we’ll be able to organize ourselves to get in a room and continue to refine a lot of those ideas and see what happens. I think as a whole this particular lineup has never really written together. We have in smaller groups…it could be great, it could be a disaster, you never know. We have three guitar players. You have three guitar players in a room together it’s always going to be volatile, but I shouldn’t say that because those guys are great. They actually work really great together, and they’re all so good. They’re the top of the heap, and for them to be able to work things out and present it the way we do every night live, it’s pretty amazing. I’m sure we can harness that energy and that vibe and get stuff recorded.” There always seems to be some controversy surrounding GNR, but what do you want fans to know about the band and your music? “I just want our fans to know we’re thinking about them. We always do because it’s for them. Everything we do is for the fans. As far as controversy and stuff, I probably said something in this interview that’s going to start something. I never know (laughs)… We’re here for the fans and we appreciate the fans, especially the ones that have been fans for such a long time and the ones that have come out and seen the new band. I know there’s always been skeptics, obviously, and the ones that actually come out, I think most of them walk away going, ‘Wow that was cool; that is a great band.’ So if you haven’t seen us yet come check it out.” What does it mean to you that GNR is going to be part of the entertainment lineup in Vegas? “You know when I was growing up it was such a really cool special thing. You heard about the Rat Pack performing there. Then when Elvis did his residency, that was just a huge thing. It was just like magic – you just wanted to be there. So I think , you know, not that we’re as cool as Elvis or anything, but we’re still alive, that’s a positive, and just to be a part of that, that’s pretty awesome.” http://blog.vegas.co...in-vegas-25064/

  15. Axl Interviewed by USA Today

    DATE: Tuesday October 30th 2012 TITLE: Exclusive interview: Axl Rose on time, on task in Vegas TEXT: Few front men in rock 'n' roll have been as controversial, sensationalized or polarizing as Axl Rose, who suffered sexual and physical abuse in childhood, led Guns N' Roses to global fame starting with 1987's Appetite for Destruction and engineered its collapse a few years later. He spent years in seclusion hiring and firing new players while tinkering endlessly on 2008's Chinese Democracy. His current GNR lineup takes the stage Wednesday night in the first of a dozen shows at The Joint in Las Vegas' Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. In a rare interview, the press-leery Rose shares his thoughts on Guns now and then, old wounds and the music industry. New music: "All the guys are writing, and we recorded a lot of songs over the years. We'll figure out what we feel best about. Chinese was done in piecemeal with one person here and one there at different times. Appetite for Destruction was the only thing written with lyrics and melody fitting the guitar parts at the same time. After that, I got a barrage of guitar songs that I was supposed to put words to, and I don't know if that was the best thing for Guns. I do want to lean more toward lyrics and melody." The long wait for Chinese Democracy: "I had to deal with so many other things that don't have to do with music but have to do with the industry. There's such a loss of time. It was more about survival. There wasn't anyone to work with or trust. Someone would come in to help produce and the reality was they just wanted to mix it and get it out the door. They had a different agenda. (The next album) will come out sooner." INTERVIEW: Axl Rose on time, on task for Vegas residency Songwriting slump: Supermodel girlfriend Stephanie Seymour and original Guns guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan "did more damage to my ability as a writer. To those three, it was all crap. It beat me down so much. At the time of the (Use Your Illusion) tours, Slash and Duff said, 'You're an idiot, you're a loser.' I didn't write for years. I felt I was hindered for a very long time. I was also trying to figure out what I wanted to say, when it's right to be venting and when you're digging a bigger hole. Lyrics on Chinese took a long time." Good times with GNR: "Here's what I miss about old Guns the most. And this is really before we got Appetite out. In the very beginning, you had three people (Rose, Slash and guitarist Izzy Stradlin) on the same page for a short period looking out for the best interest of that band and its goals. We were trying to get signed from the beginning. We were figuring out the right attorney, the right label. I had two other guys I could rely on. I don't necessarily have that now because it is more my thing, but I do ask everyone's opinion about everything." How the original band might have lasted: "Maybe if we could have worked together in the way Appetite was put together. I was really naïve. I thought the success of that record would bring everyone together more. It did the exact opposite. They got success and wanted to run in their own directions. I thought they'd go, 'Whoa, it did work.' But they wanted to do their own huge bigger success off of Guns." The odds of a Guns truce: "I feel that ball's not in my court. I'm surviving this war, not the one who created this war." The music industry now: "It's horrible. It has nothing to do with music. I'm not trying to be bitter or cynical, but it's an ugly business. People want you to care about them or their lives, their kids, but in the end, you're just a commodity. I don't feel that way about this Guns lineup. I'm not trying to use them. I have to treat it like a business, but I don't want to make decisions that are detrimental to anyone's welfare." Skipping the 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction: "It wasn't painful to not be there. It was a beating to deal with all the pressure of feeling I was supposed to be there and deciding what to do. I try to be respectful about getting an honor or recognition, but I don't really know what the Rock Hall actually is. In my experience with the people who run it, I don't see it having to do with anything other than them making money." Seclusion and ducking the media: "I just didn't go places where media was. I wasn't interested at the time. If the place to go was some restaurant in Hollywood, I went to the Valley. There was so much negativity, I didn't see any way to go public. I felt I was going to be slammed. The rock entertainment world just wanted to sell magazines." Psychological issues: "I worked out a lot of them. It was strange to get successful and lose almost your entire family. Then you end up with daytime TV talk shows. All of a sudden, things considered horrific when I was growing up were so what? You were abused? Who cares? There should be more of a public acknowledgement of reality. When I talked to Rolling Stone about it, I thought people would take a harder look at my stepdad. Instead, they came down harder on me. That's still confusing to me. But surviving at any level is good. I'm a lot better than a lot of people predicted. They were rooting for the opposite. There were things on the Internet about how I'd be found dead. I had a very dark attitude." Free time: "I go to movies, go out with friends, go to car shows. I have a zoo. My animals (wolves, parrots, dogs, cats) are my buddies. They need lots of love and attention." Fans who discount GNR as less legitimate than the original: "They can think whatever they want. I'm not interested in their opinions." SOURCE: http://www.usatoday....c-more/1669329/ RELATED DISCUSSION: http://www.mygnrforu...rose-interview/ Thanks to GNRFan53 for the submission!
