NIN's Trent Reznor gave an extensive interview to Mojo Magazine, where he talked about his life, music and thoughts about the changing music industry. Here is the excerpt that mentions Axl:

Reznor explains that he wants to be a leader for peers through example and believes the most interesting way to do that right now is on-line, not on-stage. Then he laughs at the pretentious sound of this statement. "I'm not an idiot, I swear. I'm not some fucking Axl Rose!" he smiles. Clearly the man who wrote Hurt is feeling pretty good.

"I've always been drawn to some sort of hook. And theatrical things, a sense of art direction: Gene Simmons was a big influence. I am truly embarrassed to say that now, with what he's become. He's a corny, jive, ridiculous person who embodies everything that I despise in the music industry. It's not about art or even quality, it's about the product for sale."
