Reclusive Guns N’ Roses singer Axl Rose broke his silence last night (Thursday, December 11) by answering fan questions on the message boards of two of the most popular GN’R fan sites on the Web — MyGNR.com and Here Today… Gone To Hell!
Judging by his comments, Axl appeared to be in a good mood (liberal use of the C-word notwithstanding).
Axl didn’t even seem to mind that GN’R's new album Chinese Democracy was being outsold by Kanye West. Witness this exchange:
Q: Axl, how do you feel about Kanye West’s new album outselling Chinese Democracy? Do you like Kanye’s's music?
Axl: “I met Kanye at the Versace awards. He was very gracious. I love Gold Digger and told him so. I’m a big fan of his stage performance as he seems to go for it physically which I relate more to. Before our release, I sent him a message that any nonsense from the media had nothing to do with us and wished him the best. I’m humbled we’ve done as well as we have, considering.”
