Soulmonster,
Any idea when Axl did the interview where he made these comments:
AXL: I couldn't be with someone sexually in a nice way, because I was made to feel like I was doing something wrong - even if it was someone I liked. The only way I could enjoy sex was if I got into being the "bad guy." Finally I grew tired of being the bad guy. I love this person I'm with. Why do I have to always maintain a low level of self-esteem in order to feel alright? I don't feel alright feeling like a piece of shit, and I don't want to be a f?!king piece of shit. Even though it was put into my head years ago, by reading up on abuse and doing the work I'm doing, I've found out that's how it works. It's a real weird thing to have to deal with. You know, I'm grown up now. That was a long time ago. I'm supposed to have gotten past that. Yeah, maybe."
And who is the interviewer, "R.I.P."?
Thanks, whether you do or not...

It's from a 1992 interview published in RIP Magazine. So "RIP" is the name of the magazine. The interviewer was Del James, Axl's good friend.

We have the interview in our database, and you can find it here: https://tinyurl.com/yavprxeg
