YouTube (Uncensored)



Update1, 4:40am CET: The Axl interview was only on the web live feed. It wsa a few minutes long.

He only confirmed that CD will be out this year, still, but the dude asked Axl to give us a specific month,

Axl didn't give it.

The live feed camera was really trying to stay with Axl after that short interview. He's presenting The Killers

after he admitted that presenting's not his kinda thing but after he met The Killers last weekend in LA,

he agreed to do it.

That was it. He looked exactly the same as he did during the Euro tour.

Update2: The live feed cam is REALLY trying to follow Axl. Axl has a couple people with him,

including Merck, making sure he's not bothered too much... It looked like Christina Milian,

interviewer chick, was trying to get some Axl time but they told her to wait...

Update3: Again and again, the keep following Axl with nothing really to talk about,

even when someone else is being interviewed, they keep the second cam on the Axman...

Update4, 5:22am CET: Axl made a short speech (no Gnr info) and presented

The Killers on stage who ended the VMA's 2006.

Tnx to: MrVics
