Our Interview with Doug Goldstein (Former GNR Manager)

I agree with certain parts. Axl may not have cared about gilby as he was practically a touring replacement for izzy. But axl certainly didnt care to much about having an  input into who the replacement for steven should be especially after the whole syeven court drama, again that was left on slashs shoulders and the difference is matt had to record except civil war,  the rest of the songs for the illusion albums so he had to do alot more than gilby. I wonder if the first  time axl  met matt was when they were doing band photos for the album!!. Slash dizzy matt and izzy where the only ones who recorded in the studio together at the same time for the illusion recordings. Correct me if im wrong Axl was never present until the music was recorded and then lay his vocals over.

I hate to say this but I don't think an artist's muse for lack of a better word is the drummer.

Izzy was much more integral to Axl. It's not to put down either drummer but in my opinion its more important the drummer can fit in with the band than the singer. 

I like to look at it sort of like the singer and guitarists feed off each other musically with the drummer matching their beat.

I can see why he'd be more inclined to want to have a choice in Izzys replacement and allowed the others to choose the drummer. Then again we weren't there and it's all speculation.

Forgive me if it doesn't make sense. I'm tired.

Matt has said that Axl showed him how he wanted him to play the piano epics.

There is also a story of Matt visiting Axl's house with Lars Ulrich ~1990.

Thank you for bringing that up. I forgot about that story.

This is probably bullshit imho. You know what this sounds like? Ol' Dougie may have been a tad miffed that he was cut out of the deal making process for this. He probably hoped to make a quick payday negotiating Slash's fee for guesting on Dangerous. 

Besides - why would he need to sell Axl on anything having to do with MJ in 1990-early '91 when the Dangerous sessions were going down? Makes zero sense. The band were ostensibly waiting for Axl to finish his work on Illusions around this time period - there was plenty of downtime to do other stuff in the meantime.

My understanding is that Doug is talking about the Give It To Me video in '92, not the Dangerous sessions. I'll have to check it again.

I checked it. Doug says it was after Axl's 1992 interviews, so he isn't talking about the Dangerous sessions. He didn't say what it was about on the podcast, but the first time he brought the story up, on RS Brazil, he said it was about Slash playing at one of MJ's concerts. Slash guested at two shows of the Dangerous tour, one in September '92 and one in December '92.

Also - I had forgotten about that - Marc Canter mentioned the MJ story on the 2016 BBC documentary.

Great interview, thanks for this!

The more I hear of these interviews, it paints Axl as the good guy and Slash as a bit of a hypocrite

i don't want to shed too much light on how we get guests. We sometimes have to tread lightly. 

My $$$ on these interviews actually being sponsored in some way (or endorsed) by #TeamBrazil, in a way to shut out and by pass the conventional press and bullshitters....
Giving it to the genuine fans who won't twist it....There's gotta be a legit reason Guns N Roses Central are getting scoops, while Eddie Trunk is crying into his mic....
I love one day to log in and see 'AXL TALKS!' ;)

haha our interviews are in no way endorsed or coordinated with Team Brazil. I think we've accomplished a lot considering people have generally never heard of us and we don't have a radio banner to hold over our head. I am curious as to why Eddie Trunk isn't getting anything.

Thanks it's also important to keep expectations realistic. While we've gotten some amazing interviews and more to come, it's funny how this whole thing works. While we can get some big names, but then people on the bottom of the totem pole (who people barely know) don't want to come on, so it's not like Axl, Slash or Izzy will just reappear on the podcast. At least i don't think that'll ever happen. There's also certain people we could interview I suppose but to be honest some people don't really interest me so we don't pursue them.

Slash also played with MJ in 1995, after the 1993 child molestation allegations.

Haha, I was pretty much joking bro but it was a way to give kudos to the quality work you've been able to accomplished...
Have you guys pursued Adler?!  I'm sure he'd be down for a rant, sorry, I mean a chat ! ;)

yeah we've pretty much pursued everyone and anyone you can think of in the world of GNR. There's some people who want to come on the show and would be amazing interviews, but beceause of health issues it probably won't happen.
