Gunzzzzzzz N’ Roses: Axl Has A Bed On His Rider!
During an interview with Triple J in Australia, Metallica’s guitarist/vocalist was shown a copy Guns’ current rider – which now includes a bed!
“A bed? That’s pretty amazing. So he sleeps at the gig,” Hetfield said when asked to read out the rider.
Nevertheless, Hetfield said he “kind of” had respect for the singer, despite the fact he is touring as Guns N’ Roses without any of the band’s other original members.
“I’ve got nothing against Guns N’ Roses,” Hetfield said. “I mean, he’s doing what he wants to do at this point.
“I don’t know if there’s much ‘Guns’ or ‘Roses’ in any of that, but it’s Axl, and he is Axl and he has not changed or waned one bit, and I kind of respect that.”
Meanwhile, former Guns drummer Steve Adler has unsurprisingly branded Axl “a nutball”.
Blabbermouth reports that the tub-thumper was asked what Axl’s motivation is in keeping GN’R going with musicians who weren’t part of the classic line-up.
“You know what?! I don’t even know. I don’t fucking even know. He’s insane – that’s it. The bottom line – the fucker’s insane. I said it. OK, fine, fuck me. I said it – he’s insane. I try and try to be fucking so cool about him… I swear to God, he’s a nutball.”
Are Guns N’ Roses being managed by Red Indians? (Sorry, Native Americans.) Check out the brand new Classic Rock Podcast here.
