I'm sure its more complicated than this, but Chris seems like a nice guy and that he just means that he never understood the whole behind the scenes stuff about GNR. Thought it was an interesting paragraph:

http://www.vulture.c...-interview.html

In 1991, Soundgarden opened for Guns N’ Roses. What do you remember most about that tour?
Without saying anything negative about Axl, what I remember the most was Duff and Slash and everyone else being regular, sweet, warm guys in a rock band that just wanted to play rock music. And then, like, there was this Wizard of Oz character behind the curtain that seemed to complicate what was the most ideal situation they could ever have been in: They were the most successful and famous rock band on the planet. Every single show, hundreds of thousands of fans just wanted to hear songs. For some reason there seemed to be this obstacle in just going out and participating in that. That is what I remember the most. It’s sad.

Axl said himself that he shouldnt have been on tour at that time. We all know he was dealing with his psychological problems, just sucked for him at that point in his life the world was watching him.

interesting indeed, it's cool to get a 1st hand perspective from a 3rd party

I'm sure we can expect excuses, excuses, and of course; more excuses in regards to Axl :jerkoff:

Sums up perfectly why Axl is my favourite. :lol:

Classy to not say anything negative about Axl. Should have ripped Slash since he spends dolla dolla bills on hookers!!

First off Chris Cornell is my second favorite rock vocalist next to Axl but why is he even being asked these dumb questions? how was it with the queen or ur experience with GnR after 20 or so years have passed? Wow the guy just made a new album n that whats being asked lmao.

Intresting insight, nothing we didn't already know but it further solidifies what we do know


On a different note, the new Soundgarden album is incredible!

I love Chris Cornell, but I don't think he knows enough about the inner workings of Guns or about Axl for that matter, to say that.

Yes, Guns were in an amazing position, but the band always had real issues to deal with, not caused just by Axl. Not even close.

Got my ticket to the rollercoaster of destruction. It's never too late to ride. B-)

Yes the album is totally worth checking out. It defiantly surprises me that a band that hadn't played for so long could create a great album; just wish GnR could've done the same.

Nive to hear a fkn layman like Cornell having no idea that some people may have personal issues that most of us are fortunate to not have.
