Axl on Jimmy Kimmel

Post by Soulmonster on Mon Oct 01, 2012 2:33 am

Los Angeles, CA (October 1, 2012) – Global music icon Axl Rose is known to spend his nights on the road playing to sold-out audiences worldwide, but in an unprecedented move Rose has scheduled his first sit-down, live television broadcast interview in more than 20 years with Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday, October 24. The appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live is another in a series of firsts for the celebrated Guns N’ Roses frontman who will spend this fall at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino for a 12-night run of shows. The historical “Appetite For Democracy” residency will run October 31 thru November 24, dates listed below.

Fans who would like to participate in Rose’s appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live can visit the website for ticket information, www.jimmykimmellive.com. Jimmy Kimmel Live airs weeknights at 12am PT/11pm CT on ABC.

Amusing, although not very informative.

I guess Axl succeeded in looking like a more funny/friendly guy than how most media wan't to describe him.

Cool response from Matt!

A huge amount of positive buzz following the interview. I can't bother to paste in all the articles, but here's one:

Key Points from Axl Rose's Interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live
Posted by Lauren Beck on Thu, Oct 25, 2012 at 2:27 PM

Last night marked the first live TV interview of America's recently dethroned Master of Sleaze and Skeeve in over 20 years. So that's what that special feeling in the air was while walking home from work. Here I thought it was the crisp fall air. To promote Guns N' Roses upcoming 12-night residency at, of course, the Hard Rock in Vegas, we were treated to the deep three-word thought monologues of Axl Rose. It was a good night for America and all that we stand for—corn, burgers, holiday traditions, VHS tapes, sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll—especially when the merits of the democratic voting process were boiled down to "meh." In case you missed it, CliffsNotes version follows:

1. Axl tends to be late to social engagements and those types of things, but he was right on time to the set of Jimmy Kimmel Live. Can you believe it? Axl can't.

2. He hitchhiked to L.A. at the age of 19. It went fairly well.

3. He was once the cool manager at Tower Video on Sunset who hired all his friends and let them drink beer after work. His time there was short-lived. He's since shrugged it off.

4. He and Izzy made a show flyer for one of their first bands called Rose. "There living fast and they'll die young!!! See them now!" it proclaims. Those where the good ol' days of incorrect grammar.

5. Axl is a big fan of Halloween trees and has one in his home, much to the wonder and dismay of small children. Similar to Christmas trees, these (usually faux) conifers are dyed black with orange streamers and Halloween-themed ornaments adorning the branches. Gifts are placed at its trunk.

6. He was a giant ear of corn for Halloween once. It was an inside joke with the guys in GNR, we'll never understand.

7. It's cool if a child is named after him, unless he once knew the child's mom intimately.

8. He had the cornrows during the period of time he dressed up as an ear of corn. Double corn.

9. Sometimes there is business that needs to be attended to during shows—for instance, finding out which song should be played next—which is why Axl had a habit of running backstage in the middle of a song.

10. Axl is pretty much leaning towards Obama, but he'll let the rest of California make the final call.

11. There is a guy named Bumblefoot, who has an interesting beard, in GNR now. He joins the current ranks with DJ Ashba, Richard Fortus on guitar, Tommy Stinson on bass, Frank Ferrer on drums, and Chris Pitman and Dizzy Reed on keys.

12. Just like Santa, he comes bearing gifts, granting the audience and Kimmel crew with gift certificates to Tommy's Burgers, whose truck is parked out front. By this point in the interview, he's suddenly become a very difficult person to hate.

13. You can never wear too many rings on your fingers. Go ahead and just pile 'em on.

Perla, Slash's wife, chimes in:

"I was waiting for something enlightening and all I got was promotion for a show and his evident affinity for a chili burger," Hudson tells Us Weekly exclusively. "Where is the love Axl? And I stayed up for this? Sex, drugs and chili dogs. Long live Axl Rose. And a Halloween tree."

"He's had a Slash, a Buckethead and a Bumblefoot and evidently way too many Tommy's chili burgers! Hope there were some left for the audience!"


Hell hath no fury like a bitch scorned...

Haha, what a stupid move. I guess even Slash tells her at home, why the hell did you say that?

My conclusions after reading her tweets:

- Perla is not happy about the break-up
- Slash is not happy about the break-up
- Slash is not creatively fullfilled
- Perla would like more money

It is often easy to understand the true opinions of not very bright people who lets their mouth run when emotional and angry.
