    Thanks for finding it and sending it, @MillionsOfSpiders ---------------- [...] [On the Motley Crue biopic and the possibility of a Guns N’ Roses movie]: Slash: I thought the Motley movie was great. Actually, I just saw it a couple of days ago, and it really took me back to the early days in the 80's all the way through their career, because I just remember everything that sort of happened along the way. And then it gave me an insight, sort of internal details that I wasn’t really aware of. But I thought that came out great. I wouldn’t want to do a Guns movie like that. I couldn’t imagine trying to find somebody to play the different members of the band (laughs). It just doesn’t even seem possible. But I think we have a lot of concert footage from the 90's in the can, like 24/7 footage from 1991 to 1994 of just every day on the road with Guns N’ Roses, and it’s been sitting in a vault for years. I would love for that to be edited at one point and put out. So we’ll see if that ever happens. [On “Leaving Neverland” and the new Michael Jackson controversy]: Slash: I can’t weigh in on that. I haven’t seen it. I mean, I was on the road in Europe and there was some talk of what the movie revealed and so on, but I can’t really make any kind of statement about it, because I haven’t seen it yet. And it’s been really quiet since that initial release, so I’m not really sure. [On the plans for the rest of 2019]: Slash: After South America, we'll go straight to Europe and do the festivals over there. And after Europe, we'll go back to the States and Canada to do our first Canadian tour plus some U.S. dates; and that goes until August. Then, after that, I’m gonna hook up with Guns N’ Roses. Guns N’ Roses has a small tour in October. And then, you know, there’s been so much talk about the Guns N’ Roses record, which we haven’t actually done anything with (laughs); so we’re gonna sort of focus on that. And the Conspirators will be some time coming up, depending on what Guns N’ Roses is doing, but I’ve already started putting together material for the new Conspirators record. -------------- I have transcribed all the interview here: http://www.a-4-d.com/t3818-2019-04-05-futuro-88-9-fm-chile-interview-with-slash#14101 Original source: https://www.futuro.cl/2019/04/slash-no-me-gustaria-ver-una-pelicula-de-guns-n-roses-como-la-de-motley-crue/

    I'll start with two: 1) I prefer Don't Cry (Alt Lyrics) over Don't Cry. 2) I think Chinese Democracy is some of Axl's best work.

    I dont get some of you so called fans. Most of us fans support the dying breed of Rock N Roll music. Today its all EDM music and festivals built to attract social media influences to take a snap of themselves at a festival because its cool and hip. When the major headline from Coachella is Ariana Grande having a lemon thrown at her by a Beyoncé fan because of an issue they have, you know the music industry is in trouble. Any chance offered to embrace and support Rock N Roll, with our favourite band appearing is a good thing in my eyes.

    I don't understand why so many people get upset over GnR doing a show? Because it has grown old or boring? Realistically what could you possibly be doing on a Saturday night in September that is better than seeing Guns n Fucking Roses live. Have a drink at the show and have fun. That's what life is about, enjoying it and having fun. If a GnR show isn't enough for you than go do something else with your time and stop complaining Axl, Slash and Duff all said new music is coming and i have no reason not to believe them. I just hope there is a tour date closer to me.

    This is our 11 wedding anniversary. We were supposed to celebrate in Firenze but my wife's been terribly sick for the last 2-3 months so we couldn't travel. Good thing is that she's been good for the last few days so we are hoping that we will be able to travel to my parents for Eastern, at least. Firenze can wait. 11 years . 11 good years. It tends to get supplanted by the tediousness of routine. Pressures at work. Kids. Family. But today we have the evening for ourselves. We are finally alone. We don't expect much. We don't take anything for grated. really. Not with her disease, but maybe just an embrace on the couch and watch some stupid shit as I get steadily more drunk. Just being together with nothing else on our minds than us. And just being happy because she is getting better.

    I agree with both of these. By far the most unpopular opinions I've ever had are the following: Robin Finck is my favorite guitarist in the history of the band. The Blues is 100% about Slash.

    My educated guess is, that general public doesn't care about Izzy and Steven (if they know who they are in the first place). So the answer is no.

    In other words, there wont be a new Guns album. If they were serious about it they wouldn’t be working on their solo projects instead of focusing on Guns. The next tours will just be more greatest hit shows. This is NuGuns with Slash and Duff.

    Interesting and... unexpected interview The article "Guns N' Neuroses" was in the September 1991 issue of Spin that was released just about 3 weeks before the release of the Illusion albums. The albums must have already been printed and packaged by then - or at least they were in the process of. So, although Axl seemingly had a problem with that article, it couldn't have been the reason for Bob being called out in Get In The Ring. Spin published the contract for the press in the June 1991 issue http://www.a-4-d.com/t3224-1991-06-dd-spin-magazine-no-appetite-for-criticism-guns-n-roses-contract-for-the-press and we know that the Get In The Ring rant was recorded in Toronto on June 6th 1991. That press contract wasn't something the band was secretive about, though. It was floating around since Rock in Rio, and the band had claimed (via Alan Niven) that it was aimed only at non-US publications, namely British ones. So, the publishing of the contract alone doesn't seem to me as enough of a reason for the attack to Bob Guccione Jr. I wonder if it had something to do with another article printed earlier in Spin and with the author Danny Sugerman (for those who don't know, Sugerman had worked with the Doors since he was very young and later he became their second manager; later in the 70s, he managed Iggy Pop for a period; then he became a writer and wrote books on the Doors, most notably "No one gets here out alive"). Sugerman was interested in GnR and started writing a book, but, according to Alan Niven, the band was opposed and wanted nothing to do with it. At one point Sugerman had a conversation with Axl (mostly) and Izzy at a bar, and then wrote a story for Spin (which was also a preview for his then forthcoming GnR book) that was published in the November 1990 issue: http://www.a-4-d.com/t554-1990-11-dd-spin-magazine-bad-to-the-bone-axl In March 1991, Alan Niven did an interview with the L.A. Times, where he defended the press contract, and mentioned Sugerman's story in Spin as an example of the band's distrust towards the press: http://www.a-4-d.com/t2465-1991-03-17-interview-with-alan-niven-in-los-angeles-times A look at Spin’s feature story on Axl Rose, titled "Axl Comes Clean to Danny Sugerman," offers an intriguing glimpse at the often messy aftershocks of a celebrity profile. According to GNR manager Alan Niven, the piece was “full of inaccuracies and self-serving embellishments.” [L.A. Times, March 17, 1991] Sugerman, though, blamed Spin for editing his piece and misquoting both him and Axl: Danny Sugerman: “I don’t blame Alan for being upset. [...] Spin rushed the story out two months early and they totally misquoted Axl and me. They never showed me a final draft of" the piece, and they didn't make most of the corrections I’d suggested. In fact, they took sentences I’d written and put quotes around them and attributed them to Axl. Ϊ was livid about the whole thing.” [L.A. Times, March 17, 1991] L.A. Times asked for Bob Guccione Jr's comment on Sugerman's accusations: Bob Guccione Jr.: "Actually Danny came in wildly late with his piece. His story was the only story in later than mine. We only made so many changes because the piece wasn’t very well written. We never changed any of Axl’s quotes, not a single one. The only fixes we made were so Danny’s language would be more understandable. Afterwards we discovered that the best part of his story [an account of a police raid on Axl’s apartment] turned out to have been lifted' straight out of a People magazine story. So I had to run an apology in the next issue of Spin saying that we’d run portions of the People story without attributing it to them." [L.A. Times, March 17, 1991] Then there was some bickering between Alan Niven and Danny Sugerman. Sugerman fired back at Niven and Guccione Jr. and said that Niven was upset because Axl had spoken to him: Danny Sugerman: I’m not sure whether being called a liar by Alan Niven and Bob Guccione Jr., two of the sleaziest people in the music business—a business with no dearth of sleaze—is either the biggest insult or the highest compliment I’ve ever received. Despite such ambivalence, I’m prompted to inform readers that Guns N’ Roses manager Niven is upset because he couldn’t slop me from writing a book on his band and couldn’t stop Axl Rose from speaking with me or, for that matter, stop me from speaking with Axl, whom I found to be infinitely more sensible and intelligent than his manager. As for Guccione, all I can say is consider the source. We all know to what high moral standards this paragon of virtue aspires. [L.A. Times, April 7, 1991] Niven replied, saying that Axl, although displeased with Sugerman's piece in Spin, agreed to read Sugerman's book draft to check for inaccuracies: Alan Niven: In response to Danny Sugerman’s April 7 letter: 1— Two years ago, Sugerman contacted our (management company] expressing a desire to write a book about Guns N’ Roses. Our clients told us they wanted no part of it. Despite their wishes, Sugerman secured a contract from a publisher. Since our clients preferred to have any such volume compiled under other authorship, we were instructed to tell the publisher and Sugerman that they would be denied any access or endorsement. 2— As for Axl Rose’s meeting with Sugerman, Axl elected to deal with the inevitable. He decided out of responsibility to his following to read the manuscript in order to extinguish the inaccuracies he anticipated after Sugerman’s piece in Spin magazine. What's more, Axl is quite capable of recognizing an exploitative sycophant when he meets one. 3— In regard to Sugerman’s slur, I am prepared to have any aspect of my business investigated by anyone at any time. My firm prides itself on its integrity and ethics, and our reputation is unimpugned. Check with anyone who is actually a part of the business (as opposed to being an opportunistic parasite). [L.A. Times, April 21, 1991] A few months later, after Sugerman's book was released, Axl would confirm that he initially had a problem with the Spin article and Sugerman, but then Sugerman agreed to let him proof read his book and they were "friends now": Axl: I didn’t really ever do an interview with Danny [Sugerman]. Danny and I are friends now, but I talked to him for 15 minutes in a bar and that story came out in a magazine a few weeks later. [...] [The book] wasn’t authorized, but I proof read it ‘cause I got a copy right before it was about to come out, and I just went back and changed... Danny agreed and worked with me on just changing the facts, [like] if he said “Izzy and Slash” and it was actually Izzy and I. We changed those things. But I didn’t change any of his opinions. It’s a really interesting book and it’s kind of flattering to be, you know, compared, and have, like, this college thesis written about you, and your place in the world, and rock ‘n’ roll, and Greek mythology. But other than that I just wish it would’ve been more fun for people to read. [Rockline, November 27, 1991] So, since Axl was in good terms with Sugerman and he liked his book, he probably believed Sugerman's accusations against Bob Guccione Jr about the Spin piece and in general. (Slash, on the other hand, was furious about Sugerman's book: Then there’s an unauthorised biography by erstwhile Doors hagiographer Danny Sugerman, called Appetite For Destruction: The Days Of Guns N’Roses. “I’m gonna kill that guy,’’ fumes Slash. [The Guardian, September 12, 1991]) -------- Axl also said in 1991 that the rant was Duff's idea and Tom Zutaut endorsed it: Axl: "Get In The Ring" was a song that was… basically put together by Slash and Duff and… I came up with the… with the low vocal part. And Slash and I wrote that part together. We wrote different verses. And we wrote a whole song that when the whole band actually had the song together, the words didn't fit the arrangement of the song. And so, we were in Toronto, playing a show in Toronto. And we had one last song to re… to finish recording, that was "Get In The Ring". So, we went in the studio and just kind of started putting things together. And then Duffdecided that I should express my feelings about how we've been treated by the press, because that was his initial concept for the song, and that I should just go for it. And I was kind of like: "Are you sure? You sure I should do this?". And then Tom Zutaut, of Geffen, was there and he was like: "Go for it." So I got behind the mike and went for it. And everybody was really happy and we just decided to do it. [WNEW, September 9, 1991] He repeated that on Eddie Trunk in 2011 and also implied that it had to do with record label politics (favouring Rolling Stone over Spin) which he had no idea of at the time.

    Just confirmed my travel plans and travelling from New Zealand for both the Louder than Life and Exit 111 festivals. Bouns is the family is coming along aswell, the wife and 2 kids. Don't hold out hope GNR well turn up again in New Zealand any time soon, so i will go see them. Looking forward to a new experience and seeing the band live again within a different environment. This will be my 4th visit to the US to see the band live. Last visit was to see the band at Coachella. Ticked off going to Coachella along with seeing the band perform its 2nd show with Duff and Slash back in the band. Looking forward to Deftones as well. I can remember seeing them play a Big Day Out festival in Auckland 20 years ago as young bucks that no one really knew about as they played on one of the smaller stages. Saw them 3 years ago in Auckland on their last visit and they rocked the tiny venue they played.

    It's just a festival with some pretty decent names. Some people seem so frustrated with no new music or no Izzy/Steven/whoever that anything and everything GNR do must be ridiculed. Sad. Not sure what the oldie comment is about. I think i see a mix of old and young there. I don't really expect GNR on a festival for young bands about to break through?

    Phil Lewis labeling GN'R's catalogue aside from AFD as 'average' is pretty hilarious. But to then double down and act as if LA Guns has done anything special is even more hilarious. A great many R&R or even Metal fans don't even know who LA Guns is. And most of the ones that do only know it because of the GN'R connection. So there's that. I can understand the POV that none of the subsequent material was as 'classic' as AFD. But average?? GN'R Lies and both UYI's didn't sell like they did or receive continuous radio play like they did or spawn videos like they did because they were 'average'. If they were average, the sales and radio play would have drastically fallen off. As would the popularity of the band. But it didn't. Because most of the material was pretty darn good if not 'classic'. Funny, but take away AFD and GN'R's supposed 'average' material still dwarfs anything LA Guns ever did, and a lot of other bands for that matter too. What a joke.

    That's simply not true! There's many songs that he sang well after the first 4 songs. Listen to this for example: Name one other person on this planet who could sing Out Ta Get Me like that. There's none. It might not be 100% perfect like in 2010, but most of the song he sounds incredible. Axl's voice doesn't work the way you say it works. His voice doesn't turn to shit after singing a couple of songs. His voice sounds bad when he's singing stuff that doesn't suit his voice. It doesn't matter if it's the first or the last song on the setlist, if it fits his voice he sounds good, if it doesn't then it is what it is. When he's singing stuff that suits his voice he could sing all day and sound incredible. That's what happened with AC/DC. Those songs fit his voice and that's why he could sing AC/DC all day without starting to sound bad. Out of all GNR songs SOYL is the most like an AC/DC song in the sense that the song is full of screaming from start to finish. That's why he always sounds good on it. When it comes to GNR songs Axl usually sounds good on certain parts of the songs and not that good on other parts of the song, depending on what kind of a voice he has to use. The first songs on the GNR setlist are songs that fit his voice pretty well. He usually sounds good on OTGM too. Wichita Lineman and The Seeker are also songs that are easy for him to sing and nobody can say he sounds bad on those. There's many songs where he sounds great 95% of the song, like Don't Cry, Patience, Nightrain etc... So saying that he sounds like shit on those is a pretty huge exaggeration. When it comes to the clean high voice that some people don't like, there's technically nothing wrong with that voice either. I'd say that voice suits certain songs, but of course it's a matter of taste. At the end of the day you only have to ask yourself, how many people do you think could perform these songs better than Axl? Myles Kennedy maybe? Sure, I can respect that opinion, but with him there'll be 0% rasp and 0% venom in his voice. If you prefer his voice though that's ok, but there's not many people who could sing these songs anywhere near as well as Axl, and to be honest I don't think there's anyone in the whole world who could sing AC/DC songs these days as well as Axl. So I have a hard time calling his voice shit when he's singing songs that almost nobody could pull off as well. Sure there's moments when he sounds bad, but there's also moments when he sounds amazing. On average he sounds good. People just tend to expect more than good from Axl cause people are used to that inhuman voice that he used to have.
