Appetite for Distortion - Ep. 102 - Alan Niven talks Mental Health, Depression, and Axl Rose

Recommended Posts

Perhaps we should label this episode "Appetite for Emotion." Former Great White & Guns N' Roses manager Alan Niven joins us for the 3rd time. Alan fell into a deep depression after his firing from GNR and tells us that part of his story, mainly in hopes it will help someone else.

An important conversation is had in episode 102 of the AFD Show. Please follow/subscribe/leave a review!

Great episode.  Not one of my favorites, but an interesting conversation nonetheless.  Even though it sounds like he's in a good place he seems to hold serious grudges. 

I had a similar situation to Alan about 7 years ago now where the person who hired me was fired and I took over her role.  This person I have heard still blames me for her demise as of last year.  I have told mutual colleagues/friends we have that I would be happy to jump on the phone and clear up any misconceptions and explain my actions, but they have no interest in that.  I think that frustration they feel fuels them in some way and they don't want to lose that.  

I am sure Doug would be happy to bury the hatchet, but it sounds like Alan wants no part of that.
