I know of a guy who met him back in 2006. He also met the whole band in 2010, even Axl.

The story about Izzy is quite surreal!!

He was going to the show of Bilbao (Spain) in 2006, and while he was on the train to get there he readed an article in the newspapper talking about the GNR's show. It mentioned the hotel where the band was staying so he went there to have some drinks and see if he could take some photos with someone. He saw everyone but Axl (who was in a different hotel).

In the lobby he asked a photo to Izzy and talked with him for a while, he told me that Izzy was very friendly and they were talking about the city etc.

After, this same day, this guy was walking around the city and saw again Izzy, walking alone (Bilbao is not a big city). Izzy remembered him and told him he was looking for A MIRROR AND SOME SPECIAL SCISSORS, but he couldn't find them as he did not speak Spanish and the people couldn't understand him either. So, my friend told him to help him and he went around the city looking for these scissors, as Izzy's translator. They were talking about music and Spain as Izzy had gone several times in holidays (I don't remeber the city but it was somewhere near Barcelona). They went to several shops and only bought the mirror, not the scissors, also they tried in some barbershops but they couldn't make it. He asked Izzy if he wanted to get his hair cut but he answered that he wanted to do it himself.

I know it all sounds strange, but it's the way it happened.

Interesting izzy is a Edward scissors hands lol🤔😅

Never met Izzy. Don't really care to, either.

Come to think of it, I've only ever met Gilby, Ron & Del James.

Oh yeah no I gave him a cigarette and didn’t know who he was until 3 years later. I guess he was in the shop to buy an instrument, I was there to steal a guitar to sell for heroin. Good times.

Thank you. So it’s the orange jacket pic, I know it. :D It has been shared on the interwebs a lot, only with the fan cropped out :) 

 

 

How dare they! 😂

This was after the first London o2 gig in 2012. He was jet lagged but very nice. No idea who his girlfriend was but she was also nice. Also met Axl who was with Sacha at the time.

I wonder if Izzy has any uneasiness when he flies considering that one of the worst things that has happened to him occurred on a plane. Probably makes sure he has an aisle seat, just in case.

I'd say worst thing (from Izzy's POV) happened after the flight...when he was arrested. While on a plane he was just acting like an ass.

I'm sure that you're right, he had to be freaked out. Wasn't the FBI involved when he was taken into custody? I remember reading that he told the person who was questioning him that he   was from Boise, Idaho😄. Sorry I've taken the thread a bit off here.

He did? He dared to lie to an FBI agent? lol I read it was FBI because the piss incident happened during the flight so no particular state police was involved.

FBI = Federal Bureau of (piss) Incidents. 

 

There were several people waiting for him on airport... a guy who's skin and bones and got decked by Vince Neil who's like three feet tall. I guess they didn't want to take any risks. 

But the best part is a statement from Geffen Records publicist Bryn Bridenthal: Stradlin was angry at having to wait to use the plane’s restroom and ″relieving himself in the galley was just his way of expressing himself.″:lol:
