What do we know about Axl as Tommy "The Nightmare" Smith?

21 posts in this topic

GTA San Andreas is an awesome game and is made even better with my favorite frontman of all time hosting my favorite genre's radio station. He has same great lines, even referencing the song Patience in one. Ive looked over the years and never found an arbitrary answer on why or how Axl, in the year 2004, as CD was in limbo ended up as his role. Does anyone know anything about it or does this just fall in the abyss of endless Guns mysteries? What do you guys think? (I'm sure this thread has been created before but I don't wanna bump a thread from 2014 :P )

A lot of work was done on the album in 2004 and was slated for a November release which would've been just after San Andreas came out in October.

The San Andreas soundtrack was released on Interscope which was Guns label at the time.

Axl had spending lots of time in NY both personally and professionally. Rockstar is based in the city as well.

The Housers and Lazlow are huge 80s nerds (Vice City, anyone) and 80s metal in particular. I'm guessing a simple inquiry about the soundtrack to Interscope started the conversation or maybe they ran into one another doing recording / casting sessions for the game. You never know.

Lazlow produced the sessions with Axl and even still has the DAT tapes.

I thought it was more ironic that he didn't voice the station that played Welcome to the Jungle :lol:

It makes total sense though since the game was based in 1992 and Radio X was new "hip" station.

Tommy Nightmare Smith was an old washed up rocker that loves the old days and complains about the new stuff.

One of the greatest video games ever made.

Even the controller smashing missions couldn't take away from its brilliance.

It doesn't even make sense to be on Radio X which was the grunge station. I think the DJ introduces it like she was listening to it because it made her parents angry. :lol:

I hated those missions. I remember finally completing one and the relief i felt as i was landing....then after i landed it told me to park in the hanger

I ended up clipping the wing of the plane on the side of the hanger and the plane blew up :anger:

Supply Lines was pretty tough yeah.

They even patched it on future pressings of the game to make it easier.

Fun times
