Quotes:
the MTV thing was a lot of fun. We just basically… We were working on putting that little medley together on that day, 'cause we didn't know we were playing it 'till a couple of days before it, 'cause it was still in negotiations. So we were really happy to be able to do that. It just blew all of our minds when we were out there and doing it. Like, when the curtain went up, it was like, 'Is this still really happening?[Interview with Axl Rose, December 2002]

In 2002, Jimmy Fallon was the host, and we weren’t going to tell anybody about the last performance, but Jimmy was going to tease it without saying Guns N’ Roses. It’s 11 o’clock, we’re in the final commercial break and they’re the last thing on the show, going on at like 11:10. And I give Earl, who has been Axl’s bodyguard forever, the thumb’s up, and he said, ‘I don’t have eyes on Axl. He left the building.’ And I’m like, ‘Earl, it’s your job to be with him, right?’ He said Axl went to take a walk because he was nervous. And I was like, ‘That’s fine, but he couldn’t take the walk at 9 or 10? It’s 11 frickin’ o’clock!’ I hoped and prayed he would be walking back, and at about 11:07, we hear from Earl that Axl’s back in the building, and sure enough they closed the show.
