Questions Axl has never been asked on interviews?


Recommended Posts

Axl never gives interviews which is a rarity among old rock stars who usually at his age become "media whores" and appear everywhere they can to try to stay relevant. His small amount of interviews means that there are lots of interesting questions he has never been asked, these are the ones that come to mind for me:

-Where did your classic vocal style come from? It's not a typical one and it's hard to imitate. How did you develop it?

-There has been a lot said about the infamous fight with Nirvana at the MTV awards of 1992, can you give us your point of view about what exactly happened there? What are your current thoughts on Nirvana, Kurt Cobain and the whole feud?

-The lack of new releases ofc. Did you know that perfection is the enemy of good? Is Paul Tobias still locked in the vault?

Any more ideas? If Axl has actually been asked some of these questions please let me know.

"Do you prefer Atlas Shrugged with drums at normal level or 2 dB higher?"

Axl's 2006 look was the best, IMO of all time for Axl Rose.

The cornrows were his last decent look imho. 2006 Axl was one stylish bastard for the most part.

What's with your wardrobe?

Who told you the fedora hat with headband was a good look?

Silkworms... why?

Cornrows... more why?

What was the most difficult aspect of playing with AC/DC?

What's with the single fingerless glove? I thought you hated Michael Jackson?

How many complete songs containing your vocals were made during the CD sessions? How many CDs are actually out there, I mean, in there? 

How much of a say does Slash (and Duff) have in the band matters? Does TB attend your music meetings and meddle in decision-making? 

Why did Robin Finck leave the band? 

Why did Buckethead really leave the band? 

Was Eye on You seriously intended for a GN’R record? 

Why have you toured past the end of 2017, when you audibly couldn’t really handle it any longer? 

What do you do when you don’t tour for almost a year? 

Why did you cut your hair? 

Are you ever gonna change your concert wardrobe? 

Are you ever gonna work with Oh My God again in any way? Was it intended to be released on CD 2? 
Why not? 

Why don’t you ever wear shorts on stage? We officially haven’t seen your abundant inks yet. 

Why does everything take so long? Why haven’t you released any videos from the golden era? Have you personally supervised the NITL Selects? Have you seen it? 

Why and when did you change your mind about Slash? What was really behind the reunion? I don’t take the “it had a lot to do with the Coachella promoters” crap for an answer. 

How much new music do you have, what is the new album gonna consist of, what’s the progress, and when is it coming out? 

 

EDIT: Oh and why was Pitman fired?

Any comment on psychic evaluations of potential employees' photographs, and the prominence & influence of such consultants (the Maynards, et al), going all the way back to the UYI days? Still standard practice?

Riad and the Bedouins hints at your former brother-in-law, an arms smuggler, and ChiDem, apparently, contrasts Mao's China with Axl's Guns. Was it ever your intention to write lyrics for both songs more explicitly about human right violations or criticism towards the military-industrial complex, as you did with Civil War?

Ever felt like you took the whole thing way too seriously?

axl doesn't answer questions truthfully most of the time if they are off script or will be damaging to the business in his view so any of these questions would be severely spun with innuendos or a lack of anything with substance 

for instance the globo interview or the china exchange was littered with a ton of non answers or a CD oriented focus 

all he wants to talk about is CD and this won't change until he dies 

Axl how did you and Izzy write such and such song? I wrote it during CD sessions 

Axl how did Slash come up with the don't damn me solo? He didn't, I did during the CD sessions 

Axl, the drumming on Rocket Queen is second to no one, where do you think steven got his inspiration? This was written during the CD sessions and initiated by Frank

Where did you classic vocal style go?  Not the Micky one, the one that's hard to imitate.  How did you lose it?

I'd ask about how he found out about Kurt Cobians suicide and what was going through his afterwards. 

 

why has so little music been released?

 

do you want the AFD5 back on the same stage again?

 

what's your real beef with Donald Trump?  

 

will you and Izzy ever write together again?

 

some say GNRs legacy will be defined as missed opportunity.  what do you think?

For all those questions he would just blame everyone but himself

Why didn’t you release the Better video in 2008/09?

What was the whole “Stay of Execution” registered thing about? 

Now that you’ve made that insane money, have you paid off any old label contracts so that you could be free to release anything on your own terms, time-wise etc.? 

What was the story with Izzy and you guys “not wanting to split the loot equally”? 

When exactly did you start to change your mind about Slash/reunion? 

What was the story about Slash banging at your door in 2005? 

Have you ordered Fn’ando to take down all GN’R-related YT videos and sometimes even entire channels? Have you seen all those compilation videos or guys playing guitar versions from various bands, with only your band’s music missing there? Do you know that even when Baz posted a 2006 GN’R footage with himself on his social media, it got taken down quickly? Do you realize how stupid that is? 

Are you ever gonna change the playlist, remember the “we kinda pick them as we go” from the 90s, adjust it to your current form, and cut the touring short? 

In case of emergency, let’s say diarrhoea, are the hired guns allowed to use one of the three “big guns” booths? 
Yours?

Cornrows on white folk are generally a bad idea. But on a ginger... terrible idea. Fashion wise though, aye you're likely right. It was downhill fast after that. The porn star look was pretty bad. Then came yellow rain jackets, fedoras, excess bling, bad haircuts, skinny jeans, pixie boots, and the return of the checked shirt.
