Here is Steven describing the interview in his biography (page 101-102):

"Izzy was so drunk, he kept interrupting everyone. Well., we all had been partying, maybe to try to calm our nerves about the interview. So we were all jumping in, just impulsively blurting out whatever came to mind. I remember at one point, when we were talking about the way we created our songs, Axl said something like "I just want control over fucking everything."

So Slash jokingly compared him to Ayatollah Khomeini, who are not exactly a beloved figure in America.. Axl got a little pissy over that. Then we got all pissy over the fact that the interviewer kind of jumped on the "total control" comment to see if he could get us arguing among ourselves. I guess the way Axl spoke, it could have been interpreted as he alone wanted total control and was not speaking on behalf of the band. Then we all kind of ganged up on this guy, because that's the way we were back then. You took on one of us, you better be prepared to take us all on. The next thing that happened was epic: Izzy shouted, "Fuck you and your magazine." You know what? They printed it. The writer ended his article by saying, "Well, fuck you and your band". That was great.

when we got the magazine about two weeks later, I was a little disappointed with the cover; I hated that picture, but we had no say over what photo they would run or copy they would print. I remember Axl was pissed because they spelled his name wrong: Axel".

Obviously, Steven got some of the facts down wrong: The interviewer was a woman and Axl's control comment came when he answered the wish question.
