Our Interview with Dizzy Reed

Recommended Posts

Just finished watching this. I really appreciate the effort you guys put into this whole thing, but that interview kinda felt like a wasted opportunity. Lots of questions were redundant and same old same old (sightseeing during tours, best city to play in). There could’ve been lots of interesting things you could’ve asked dizzy about nitl. Too bad..

My guess is certain topics were not allowed to be discussed or the guys are trying to build trust so they can secure more interviews within the GNR camp. I don’t think Dizzy would want to be the spokesperson for details about NITL.

Great job getting Dizzy on Sid

 

A few questions I'd have wanted to know about.

 

What was it like to go thru the st Louis and Montreal shows on the UYI tour.  And ANYTHING about the never ending Chinese Democracy sessions.  I literally can't believe there wasn't a single question about that.

 

Overall, great to have just gotten that done

I’m sure it is. Even more reason to throw some questions into the ring that are interesting and worthwile. That was a big opportunity.

Even slash talked about nitl, and he is going area51 since he is back. I’m sure dizzy could’ve told you how it felt like to be on stage with slash again, how it was to be in the rehearsal room for the first time and how his relationship is with him or how his work with melissa is, etc.

I didn't expect much from this interview because what Dizzy cares about the most now (undrrstandably) is promoting his album. He probably wouldn't want to answer many GnR related questions.

I'm looking forward to the interview with Youth.

I swear EVERY TIME you guys announce a new special guest I'm praying to god for it to be Sebastian Bach. I don't think it's impossible to get him on.

But I enjoyed the interview, Dizzy seems really down to earth. And that indian food story was hilarious lol

I can understand not asking 'deep' questions, you want him to talk good to other GNR members about it and not be like "Yeah and then they asked me to show them the text messages you sent me!"

Btw, did you ask him about Axl quoting one of your videos? If so, what did he say?

I got 2 yes's from Bach's manager last year and left a voicemail with his reps like a week ago. As Sid mentioned, booking interviews can be difficult, even with a "yes."

appreciate all the hard work. you make this forum a better place. now please for the love of god, try to get one of the big 3 on there and hit em with a question about new music. im sure youve tried already, along with many others but THAT is what 99.9% of us wanna know

im sure even if you did get the chance to ask they wouldnt give you a straight answer but i wanna hear someone other than fortus say the same old shit we've been hearing for years. and i guess fuckin kudos to dizzy for giving us what was pretty much a flat out "no" but im dying to hear it from someone that has some pull

Some cool stories, but I can't believe there was no talk of the years 1995-2008. Also, there wasn't any real mention of new music, or even if he'd like to do it. 

Would really have loved to have heard about how it was rebuilding the friendship with Duff and Slash after years of not performing together.

I can only imagine how difficult it is to get these interviews, but these were very soft questions. The only thing that came close to a hard question was asking if they would do some more deeper cuts. Not to shit on your efforts, it was a good interview for people that haven't really seen or read many Dizzy interviews. And it's quite possible that your question bank was limited by one of Dizzy's handlers.... if he has handlers?

Funny story at the end though about touring in india :D

yeah looking back I would have liked to have had more time to prepare. New music i didn't bother asking since he answered that question in another interview he did recently.

I agree no point asking about it really. I could probably give you the answer he'd give😂 

Anyway, keep up the good work! Love the Beavan and Brain interviews!

Sid some people just don’t understand and respect the fact that it’s extremely hard to get someone like Dizzy on In the first place and then understand that someone who’s so low in the band would never be allowed to talk about highly classified information.

Anyways, really enjoyed watching the interview man I respect all of the work you do for the community and I hope you can keep getting bigger.

Just a thought, maybe if Axl respects you guys enough to quote one of your vids (if that’s what he actually did), maybe someday he might do an interview with you guys. I could definitely see him doing an interview with a lesser known news outlet than with a bigger well known one that could possibly twist his words for publicity.

I really hope you get it, you are very professional and your podcast is ace! I'm sure the more people you get on it, will open more doors for you. Don't give up and keep pushing with the Baz! :hug:

But he is not Slash and no one cares what fucking Dizzy Reed thinks. He made his feelings towards former members clear when they were, well, former members. We don't to know his kissing up to them now.

You dah man @sidman69 don't feel bad about not asking deeper questions this time. It's a good call and hopefully this leads to guests like Axl.

I haven't really been keeping track of the forum outside of the Religion/Spirituality thread lmfao...can you tell me what Axl quoted from you?
