Questions Axl has never been asked on interviews?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I wish someone would sit down with him for a few hours and get him to comment on every song in the GnR catalogue, ala John Lennon a few times after the Beatles split (and most famously a few weeks before he was killed). 

 

His opinions are mostly the same in the separate interviews but he's way more hostile towards Paul in the earlier ones. I bet if someone asked Axl 20 years ago and now it would've been the same with Slash.

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

no, he looked like a mental pervert - cornrows was obviously either a wig or implants, axl has looked and dressed like complete shit since he came out in 2001 for the nba finals, the only time where he looked pretty cool was the vegas 2001 NYE show, but that was it, he should've kept that look and kept in shape

axl's best look was 1990-1991 

farm aidi

you could be mine video 

also his jewelry back then was good, can someone tell me the type of watch he had, it was red and big

You kinda have a point here like! The cornrows really were awful looking on him. And really uncool!

I'm probably one of few who thought Axl's 2006 cornrows looked pretty cool. Wasn't a fan of the 2002-2003 or whatever cornrows. 

The 2002 look was utterly awful aye. 2006 was better for sure.

Why didn’t you go to Shannon’s funeral 

Didn't someone on the inside say he didn't want to attract publicity? Also iirc, Jimmy Kimmel asked him why he had cornrows. I would ask Axl if he planned do any shows earlier than HOB in January 2001. There were rumors Guns N' Roses were in talks for Woodstock 99 though I can't see the Chinese lineup performing that early.

He addressed the corn rows on Kimmel and he said he had no regret about them, he seemed to get defensive when Kimmel kind of mocked it, as for having sex with Beta I would say yes but I am sure there is something going on there,  what we will probably never know

... no regret about taking them down, is what he said. Kimmel then stupidly asked whether he saved them, which Axl mocked.

2006 was the last time he looked in decent shape, went bad after that but looks better facially since 2016 though still a bit overweight but that's common for a man his age.

In fairness, he was pretty much the same during the 2007 tour.

Between that and late '09 was the first lapse, from which he bounced back somewhat on the road. Heavy on the hooch, tho.

Between Dec 2010 (AU/UAE leg) and October 2011 (the infamous RIR show), he kept up the drink, apparently.

Wonder what Axl looked like in 08? He disappeared during that year even though Chinese Democracy released. I wonder at what point exactly he ditched the cornrows (if he still had them in 08/09).

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. 

Those cornrolls probably added to the demise of his hair too

I've always wondered that too. He did say 08 was the worst year of his life and he looked so bloated and different when he returned in 09

Since you asked... Jan 2009 is what I heard. It was supposed to be a simple re-do, but his hair had gotten a bit fucked up.

"Bad hair day" was a bit of an understatement, if you catch my drift.

In the 2006 radio interview? I haven't heard that one in full so I may have missed that.

Also remember it was maybe Doug Goldstein? had a long conversation on the phone with Axl about Kurt after his death to make sure he was alright.

@Denin Where did you hear this? It's the first time I'm hearing about this but seems plausible.
