Who do you think was he pertaining to?

Choice 5- "everyone". He blames every single person (not TB) but himself for anything & everything that has gone wrong. From relationships with chicks to band mates to going on stage late to catching a cold.

Well Estranged and November Rain are about both aspects of Erin and Seymour if I understand Axl correctly. Would have to assume Locomotive subscribes to that capsule of time also.

November Rain is a song about not wanting to be in a state of unrequited love. Estranged is acknowledging it and being there and having to figure out what to fucking do. It's like being catapulted out into the universe, and you have no choice about it and having to figure out what the fuck you are going to do, because the things you wanted and worked for just cannot happen, and there is nothing you can fucking do about it. I wrote the song basically about "who" I am, and how I feel, and the breakup with Erin and how I didn't want it to die. I also apply it to a lot of other situations or friendships or family or things where you knew it had to end.I actually had a dream of playing a piano in this song. I started playing the piano, and felt the emotions it was bringing out of me. I don't know of anyone who has a video like this showing their own emotional destruction, and the process of transcending this. It is a communication with Dylan. I am not allowed to communicate with him. I was told one thing and shown another. Dylan is robbed of certain things he likes and I am also. I am making a video of what's going on and how to show it. I ended up (in the scene of Axl sleeping on the ledge in Dylan's room) laying down and having the most peaceful sleep. I needed to do this for myself. I needed to be in that room. It was a strange way for me to spend time with Dylan in my own mind. I had a real heavy sense of peace when I woke up. This video shows a battle thru things. A battle not necessarily over yet in a period of - will he transcend this or not? The dolphins ascimilate a state of peace or grace. It was not originally intended, but the scene was about dying and going to Heaven. (Finds a Heavenly state of grace.) At the conclusion of November Rain, things changed. There was an evolving that took place. It's very hard to rise to or transcend the story the way it was intended. (Axl saw a way thru by finding a way of dealing with it) .....(Another drowning scene)...Don't Cry is ...personally I am more proud of it than anything I've done. Those video's are hard to look at. I was in the process of being "fucked over" when November Rain was coming out. For a period of time I was going to buy the video from the band and put it in storage, but decided to "rise" to it and put it out. I thank Slash after it was done. I hated it, and totally grew to hate the song, even though I liked it. After it was done, I felt so good inside cause it pulled ALL this stuff out of me. The emotions and feelings of not wanting something to die. Caring about another person, and not wanting them to destroy themselves. It can be applied to Steven Adler, or it can be applied to a lot of people. Members of my family, relationship with Erin, or Stephanie. And, there is not a god-damned thing you can do about it and trying to figure that out. This (Estranged) and Coma are the 2 heaviest songs I have ever written. It is wild to be doing this video with the things going on at home and with family. It woulda been nice if it happened with Stephanie and I, but the woman continually worked very subtly at destroying that, and trying to keep me from being here for some fucking reason. I don't know..it's amazing, certain things are happening, and it's nice to realize that - wow, it wouldn't be as cool if she was here, as when she was the person she was with me. Very strange. Deep inside ALL the emotions you realize you do love this person and care about what happens to them. But, not to the point of being a martyr or hurting anyone in my life.
