Axl: Hello.

Stern: Dudes, you're on it... It is really you guys?

Axl: Yes, this is really us. We’re sitting here, at my condo, and we’re like... we’re calling the world.

[Bach makes noises in the background]

Stern: Really?

Axl: Yes (chuckles).

Bach:  No, we’re calling Howard!

Stern: Now who am I talking to? Is this Axl or Sebastian?

Axl: This is Axl here, and this is Sebastian here.

Stern: Hey, Axl...

Bach: This is Sebastian here, and this is Axl... over there.

Stern: Do you think it's them?

Quivers:  I don't know...

Bach: What?

Stern: Now let’s see, let me ask them a question only they would know...

Bach: No, listen, man. If you wanna call back... Axl...

Axl: I’ll tell you how (?)

Bach: Now listen, if you wanna call back, he lives in a condo, you ask for the room... wait.

Stern: Wait, we're on the air, don't give your room out.

Quivers: (talks over – inaudible)

Bach: Hey, are we on the air right now?

Quivers: Just go right there!

Stern: Yeah, we’re on the air.

Bach: (Yells) RIDE ON! WE’RE ON THE AIR! (laughs) [Beep sound]

Stern: Now, wait a second. What’s that language?

Quivers: Whoa!

Bach: Hey, Howard, did you call Axl at the Mayflower?

Axl: Yeah.

Bach: Mayflower?

Stern: Yeah.

Bach: Okay! Isn’t that proof?

Quivers: Well, no.

Stern: That's sort of proof, but everybody heard that. Let me ask you a question that only Axl would know.

Bach: Okay. (Speaking to someone in the room) Will you get Axl?

Quivers: What happened to him in Paris?

Stern: What happened to him...

Bach:  Okay, dude. Here, listen. This is a question that Howard says only you will know (laughs). What happened in Paris?

Axl: What happened in Paris? I got in a fight with...

Bach:  Is it live, I put him on?

Stern: Yeah, put him on.

Quivers: Yeah!

Bach: There he is, bro.

Quivers: He’s gonna tell Sebastian (laughs).

Axl: We fought twelve French guys.

Bach: (laughs)

Stern: You fought twelve French guys (?)

Axl: We fought twelve French guys. I still have a broken finger from smacking this guy in the head.

Stern: Alright!

Quivers: (Laughs)

Axl: Alright.

Stern: Hey, what are you guys doing, like, what are you just doing? Like, sitting around partying?

Axl: We’re sitting here partying on the balcony and...

Bach: (yells) YEAH!

Axl: ...and we’re writing songs, and...

Stern: Where are you?

Axl: ...and rapping about rock ‘n’ roll. And we decided to call New York.

Stern: Where’re you, in Jersey or something?

Axl: No, man, we’re in [beep sound] L.A.

Stern: You’re in L.A.?

Quivers: (?) in bleeping L.A.

Stern: Bleeping L.A. Hey, Axl man, you can't use dirty language. I'll get (?) off the air.

Axl: Ah, you know, I forgot I was on. I’m sorry.

Stern: That's not cool.

Quivers: (laughs)

Stern: Oh, so you guys are in LA.

Axl: Yeah, we’re like, we’re looking at sunset in Tower Records.

Bach (in the background): We’re at the Howard Stern show!

Stern: So Axl man, you’re gettin’ tons of girls or what?

Axl: What?

Stern: What you’re doing all day, you just...

Quivers: Well, he just got married and I guess that the marriage is over?

Stern: Hell yeah, Axl, what happened?

Axl: Oh, no, no, no.

Stern: You're still married?

Axl: The marriage is stronger than ever.

Quivers: Really?!

Stern: Really?

Axl: Marriage is rolling.

Stern: Yeah. And are any of those other guys in Guns N' Roses still being a pain in the ass? Or are they getting it together?

Axl: Everything’s rolling now. We just laid down 29 basic tracks.

Stern: Really?  Now you got... You know what I like about you guys...

Quivers: Now I’m waiting for a new album here!

Axl: Dude, dude, we’re giving you a four box set out this time. It’s like... You know, it’s like “Buy or die” (chuckles)

Stern: Hey, so what's the deal, man?  So now you don't go out with any other women, you just go out with your wife?

Axl: I go out with my wife. My wife is the best.

Stern: Your wife is very fine. I saw her. And her father...

Axl: Oh, thank you!

Stern: ... Her father's, like, one of the Everly Brothers or something.

Quivers: Right, yeah.

Axl: Yeah, well, you know, he doesn’t really have any association with anything. He’s in his own little (?)

Stern: Oh yeah? Oh, he's upset cuz you married her?

Axl: No, man. It’s like, (?) somewhere than she has. He’s in his own somewhere.

Stern: Hey man, you got tons of money and stuff. What's his problem?

Axl:  His problem...

Stern: It's not like you can't support her or something.

? (in the background): It’s his problem.

Axl: He never did.

Stern: That's right... Oh, you mean he never supported her.

Quivers: Yeah, he's saying he has a better relationship than the daughter with her father.

Stern: Oh yeah?

Quivers: Yeah.

Axl: Yeah. That’s what I’m saying.

Stern: Oh, so the guy's a creep.

Quivers: (laughs)

Axl: That’s what I hear, I don’t know.

Stern: But she's so fine, man. I saw her, she's very fine.

Axl:  Erin, they’re saying how fine you are, on the air.

Quivers: Oh, she’s there.

Bach: (laughs in the background)

Stern: Hey, let me speak to her.

Axl: Erin, Howard wants to speak to you.  

Stern: Axl’s wife.

Axl: Come here, Erin.

Stern: This is good.

Axl: She’s getting all embarrassed. She’s giggling. She’s like, can’t do it.  

Stern: She is so hot. What she’s...

Stern: Hey, that guy Sebastian will steal your wife, man.

Axl: What now?

Stern: That guy will steal your wife.

Axl: Oh man, you don’t know how this works.

Stern: Yeah, I know how it works.

Axl: No, you don’t know how this works, man (chuckles).

Stern: What do you mean, how does it work?

Axl: Yeah, you don’t know how this works, man.

Stern: You guys are sharing her?

Axl: No, we’re machine head here.

Bach: (laughs)

Stern: “Machine head”? How come I don't get it?

Quivers: I don't understand the lingo.

Axl: I don’t know. It’s like... It’s something personal.

Stern: Oh, I see.

Stern: Do you know why I like talking to you guys?

Bach: Why?

Stern: Because... Who's this, Sebastian?

Bach: Yeah, this is Sebastian.

Stern: Because, you see, this is the life I should be living.

Quivers: This is real rock ‘n’ roll.  

Stern: This is...

Bach: You are living it, man.

Stern: Nah, I’m not living anything.

Bach: You don’t look like some goofball Dj who looks like a math teacher that just (?) something to do because he doesn’t like to rock.

Stern: (laughs) You mean like Rick Dees.

Bach: Oh, I don’t know. I don’t know Rick Dees... Rick don’t do...

Stern: He’s a dickhead.  

Bach: Listen, I know you could still look like a rocker...

Stern: Right.

Bach: And I know, that you know what it’s like to walk down the street and have some go, “Hey faggot (?)...

Stern: Right.  

Quivers: (laughs) Yeah, that’s rock ‘n’ roll.

Stern: In fact, Fred does that to me.  

Bach: You know what’s about.

Stern: Yeah.

Bach: It’s obvious. And your TV show is the most hilarious thing I’ve saw yet.

Stern: Hey thanks, man.

Bach: Wait, do you wanna talk to Erin?

Stern: Yeah.

Bach: Okay. Erin!

Axl (in the background): Erin!

Stern: The lucky girl who married Axl.

Quivers: How many guys are there with her?

Bach: Erin!

Stern: I don’t know.

Bach: Erin Everly!

Stern: Hey, how many guys are in there?

Bach: What?

Stern: How many guys are there?

Bach: We’ve got Del James from RIP magazine, West Arkeen and Axl and me, and my girlfriend and Erin.

Stern: Margo?

Bach: Here’s Erin.

Stern: Okay.

Erin: Hello?

Stern: Erin, how are you doing?

Erin: Fine, thank you.

Stern: Oh, you sound so sweet.

Erin: (laughs)

Stern: You’re so fine, I saw your picture in Rolling Stone.

Erin: Oh, thank you.

Stern: How is it being married to Axl? Is he good?

Erin: Yeah.

Stern: That dude can move. I saw him on the video, man. He can move.

Erin: Yeah, he can move (?), can’t he? (giggles)

Stern: And are you guys really in love?

Axl: (talks in the background – inaudible – beep sound)

Stern: Are you in love?

Erin: What?

Stern: Are you in love?  

Erin: Yeah.

Stern: And like, what? You guys make love every day?

Erin: Don’t ask me questions like that!

Quivers: (laughs)

Stern: What are you wearing right now?

Erin: I’m wearing a dress.

[Laughter in Axl’s house]

Stern: What, like a mini dress?

Erin: No, a long dress.

Stern: A long dress in, like, with no bra?

Axl (in the background): Tell him actually where the dress is from and what it is.

Erin (in the background): I can’t answer these questions, he’s asking if I’m wearing a bra...

?: (from Axl’s house) (?) He is joking...

Stern: (laughs)

Axl: Hello.

Stern: Hello, what happened?

Axl: Well...

Bach (in the background): She’s gone.

Quivers: She’s gone (laughs).

Stern: I just asked her if she was wearing a bra, that was all.

Axl: Oh, she’s...

[Bach talks in the background]

Stern: Axl?

Axl: ... a natural woman.  

Stern: She is natural. You're lucky man, I swear to God.

Axl:  Thank you. Absolutely.

Quivers: So Axl, what’s the deal with that song you have to record just the right way?

Stern: Yeah, Axl, what's going on?

Axl: Yeah. We’re nailing it, man. It’s like, I got a brand new piano, Yamaha...

Stern: Right?

Axl: And I tried out Billy Joel's piano and some other pianos and they were real weak. And I got a brand new piano and we nailed it. And I'm talking with Jeff Lynne about the string arrangements for it, but we got it right. And because of (?) my relationship I got the last verse, you know... And it's like, I got it right.

Quivers: Oh, thank goodness, because he was gonna get out of the music business if it wasn’t right.

Stern: Axl said if he...

Axl: (Chuckles) November Rain has to be right.

Stern: Axl said, if he couldn't record this song correctly, he would leave the music business.

Axl: It’s true. I mean, like, it’s theirs, like, if someone screws to make a mix-up I’m out of here.

Quivers: (Laughs)

Stern: So when is this new album coming out? Because then...

Axl: That won’t be out till the beginning of the year. We're putting out, including Heaven’s Door and Civil War, it'll be 31 songs.

Stern: Alright. And who's that Margo over there?

Axl: Margo?

Stern: Yeah. Sebastian said there's a girl Margo over there.

Quivers: I don’t think so.

Axl: No, Maria.

Stern: Oh Maria?

?: No, he said, “My girl”.

Bach (in the background): ?

Stern: Oh, “My girl”. Oh, Sebastian’s girl.

Axl: Yeah.

Stern: So what are you guys doing, swapping girls and stuff?

Axl: Um, we haven't reached these stages of development in our relationships.

Stern: Right.

Quivers: (Laughs)

Stern: In other words, you can't get your girls to go along with that, huh?

Axl: Listen to this guy, this guy is like (?). He’s sick, you know.  

[Laughter]

Axl: (?) us on tape.

Stern:  Yeah. That’s good.

Axl: You know? Are you trying to bust us here? Like, ruin our lives? Destroy us, live?

Stern: I just...

Axl: Whatever?  All of a sudden it’s like, you know, legal fees...

Stern: Hey, never mind that.

Axl:  (? )

Stern: I know you better stick...

Axl: I don’t know, man.

Stern: Hey, let me tell you something. I was shocked when you got married cuz I figured, you know, money... Well, not that you guys aren't gonna be married forever. But, you know how women have something to get.

Axl: Oh yeah.

Stern: Then, all of a sudden, when you break up, 50% of your money goes out the door.

Axl:  Oh that’s true.

Stern: Did you get her sign a prenup?

Axl: No, no way.

Stern: I'm really surprised.

Axl: No way.

Stern: I had you pegged for a prenup kind of guy.

Axl: Yeah well, you know, it’s, like, not needed with some people.  

Stern: That's pretty nice, you know. That's true love then, I guess.

Quivers: Then why were all the... There were tens of reports in the papers...

Axl: Yeah, well, it’s true love and it’s, like, certain people’s principles. Principles and (?) have nothing to do with, like, certain, you know...

Stern: How come there were so many reports in the papers? You guys were breaking up... You guys are fine.

Axl: Because, man. It’s like, we got married and all of a sudden it’s the real thing, you know. And it’s like...

Stern: Right.

Quivers: Oh, so you did break up for a while.

Axl: Oh, totally. Back and forth, back and forth. And then finally, like...

Stern: I'm thinking of going for that tattoo. I'm going for the tattoo.

Axl: What?

Stern: I'm gonna get something.

Axl: What are you gonna get?

Stern: I'm gonna get one of those... You know, like “Live free or die” kind of tattoos.

Axl: Yeah.

Stern: One of those things that...

Axl: I’m doing Mother Mary.

Stern: Really? You’ve got no room left.

Axl: Yeah. And Sebastian is writing a song “Mother Mary” and I got a chorus, so we're trying to put something together here.

Stern: Where you gonna fit another tattoo? You’re already filled up.

Axl: On my forearm.  

Stern: Oh, I didn't realize you had some space.

Quivers: He has that little space there (laughs).

Stern: Yeah, I’ll tell you something... cuz Axl is tattoo crazy.

Quivers: Yeah.

Axl: You know, as weird as it, the reason why I'm getting it, it's like...You know the 10cc song “I'm not in Love”?

Stern: Yeah?

Axl: Okay, when it's like, “Be quiet/big boys don't cry” that's Mother Mary holding baby Jesus in the video - and that's the weirdest thing I've ever seen (chuckles). And I’m getting it tattooed.

Stern: Hey, can I get AIDS from a tattoo?

Axl: It depends on what needles they use on you.  It's like, they make brand-new needles where I get my, you know (?)

Quivers: Oh really?

Stern: So you mean I have to go to some place... Maybe I should just buy my own needles and bring him in there.

Axl: Oh yeah. (?) you could do that too, I guess.

Stern:  How many needles do I need for an average tattoo?

Axl: Oh, I don't know... It depends on how many colors you use and (?).

Stern: I figure you're like a tattoo expert.

Axl: Well, it’s like, I go to a tattoo expert, you know (?).

Stern: Hey, you know who's a real pussy? Bon Jovi!

Axl: Why?

Stern: He's got Superman tattooed on his arm. Did you see that?

Axl: Yeah, he’s in his world, you know. He does his thing and...

Stern: Hey, come on... How uncool is that?

Axl: I don’t know (?)

Stern: The Superman... The Superman logo on his shoulder!

Axl: Well, one guy's got the Joker too, you know, so I guess it’s like in comic book heroes (?)

Stern: I don’t know, man.

Axl: (Sings) “makes you feel he’s a cool (?) He’s Iron Man...” (?)

Stern: Hey, tell Sebastian... Tell Sebastian, let's do a song.

Axl: Huh?

Stern: You guys get a guitar somewhere and let's do a song.

Axl: (?) guitar and do a song. Did I smash my guitar?

Stern: You did?

Axl:  Yeah.

Stern: No guitars over the apartment.

Bach (yells in the background): Amazing Grace. Amazing Grace!

Axl: Yeah, I can get a guitar over in the corner but it’s like, nah...

Stern: Nah...

Axl: I don’t think I can hear anything (?)

Bach (Sings loudly): “Amazing Grace...”

Stern: Oh, dude!

Bach: (Keeps singing)

Stern: Ah, there you go.

Axl: (Laughs) So what’s happening in New York? What are we missing?

Stern: Um, you’re not missing anything.

Axl: We’re not missing anything.

Stern: We got a Zodiac killer...

Bach: Howard!

Stern: Yeah?

Bach: Did you go to the ‘smith show?

Axl: (Laughs)

Stern: The what show?

Bach: The Aerosmith show (?)

Stern: Nah, I'm too tired.

Bach: Why?

Stern: Because I'm... I work, I get up at 4:00 in the morning. I'm too tired.

Bach: Whooh.

Axl: Uh-oh.

Bach: What a drag.

Stern: (laughs)

Bach: You’d think Howard would go watch Tyler (?)

Stern: I should have gone.

Bach: That’s not like you.

Stern: Once you... Next time you're in New York, call me and we'll get together.

Bach: I would love to do that.

Stern: We'll do that. Well, you know, me, you and Axl we'll go out. We'll do a lot of cool stuff, like, maybe hit on Axl's wife for a couple of hours.

[Laughter]

Bach: You’d find that very amusing.  

Stern: Let me tell you something. She would dig me a lot.

Bach: Oh, yeah.

Stern: Yeah.

Bach: You have that look.

Stern: I've got that certain look. The look that makes women vomit.

[Laughter]

Stern: Hey, you're not too good looking, huh Sebastian?

Bach: What do you mean by that?

Stern: I mean you're a really good-looking dude.

Bach: (?)

Stern: Hey, let me tell you something, man. Seriously...

Bach: I can’t hear...

Stern: You're good-looking... You’re good-looking enough I would have sex with you.

Quivers: (Laughs)

Bach: Would you really?

Stern: I swear to God, you're that good-looking. I bet guys hit on you all the time.

Bach: Well, I got no [beep sound] Howard.

Stern: Well, take it easy on that.

[Laughter]

Bach: I don’t.

Stern: Hey, listen, I’m gonna put you on... Hey, what’s goin’ on, man? Um, with that idiot you had to throw a bottle at?

Bach: Oh, I just, like, called (?) and gave them $45,000 (laughs)

Stern: So you gave them...

Quivers: (?)

Bach: It was like the quickest (?) that never happened. Ya know what I’m saying?

Quivers: (Laughs)

Stern: Aright. So you worked it all out .

Bach: Oh yeah, it was a very (?)

Stern: I don't mean to say the guy's an idiot but...

Bach: Thank you.

Stern: I'm sure he's a nice guy. Everybody's about you...

Quivers: They won’t be after you next.

Bach: Huh?

Quivers: (?) next time.

Stern: Yeah, I don't want anybody throwing bottles at me.

Bach: Well, you know, it's like, excuse me if I didn't know I was...

Axl: (Does a deep creepy voice) Sebastian Bach...

Bach: I sure don’t like, you know, to think like that, when someone’s, like, pitching a glass bottle at my scalp and rebounding off my head at a 90-degree angle. I got blood pouring down my face and...

Stern: Hey, I'm with you, I understand.

Bach: In front of 45,000 people you don’t say, well, “Oh, I don’t wanna, like, defend myself”. Well, thank you very much. Yes (?)

Stern: No, you had to do it. You had to do it. You had to do what you had to do.

Bach: (?) Gimme a break, man.

Stern: Hey, but listen. You're doing well and... Hey listen, hold on, I'll give you the hotline phone number.

Bach: What for?

Stern: In case you guys ever want to call in again, you'll have a good number to get through on.

Bach: Oh, we already got it, we already called!

Stern:  Yeah, but didn’t get through on in a good number.

Bach: Oh, okay.

Stern: I got a better number for you.

Bach: Okay, bro.

Stern: Alright, hold on. Say thanks to Axl.

Bach: Huh?

Stern: Say hi to Axl, I gotta go.

Bach: Okay, alright, yeah, he’s out.

Stern: Hold on.

Bach: Okay.

Axl (in the background): When is the gig?

Stern: Man. That was a surprise.

Quivers: What a surprise!

?: Very cool.

Stern: Axl Rose from Guns N’ Roses and Sebastian Bach. That’s not his real name, Sebastian Bach.
Quivers: Oh, he made that up?

[Laughter]

Stern: I didn’t wanna shock anybody.

?: Johann.

Stern: Well, they’re big in here. You know why?

Quivers: Why?

Stern: Cuz we take their call.

[Laughter]

Stern: Alright, we’ll be back right after this.

Re: 1990.07.DD - The Howard Stern show - Interview with Axl and Sebastian Bach

Post by Blackstar on Mon Nov 19, 2018 1:40 am

Hit Parader had printed a transcript of this interview in its March 1991 issue, and the misleading way it was presented on the cover had annoyed the band.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Alan Niven had cited it it as one of the examples of the way the band was exploited by the press:
According to Niven, media exploitation of the band has been widespread.

He cites the March issue of Hit Parader magazine, which put Axl Rose on its cover with Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach, touting: "Bas & Axl Interviewed Together For the First Time!" Inside, the magazine admits the joint interview was simply a transcript from a Howard Stern radio show phone interview with the duo.

Probably he went there in 1989. In that Danny Sugerman piece in Spin (November 1990) he mentioned he had visited Jim Morrison's grave a year before:

“You know, I went to Morrison’s grave site last year,” Axl said softly.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

In 1991, Izzy mentioned that Axl had been in Paris at some point and got into a fight there:

Stradlin, who's with his girlfriend Anneka for the tour, has his mind set on other things. "After this tour's finished, I'd like to go hang out in Europe, preferably somewhere near the ocean, and just keep writing songs. I think Axl will probably end up living over there at the end of this tour too. He's talking about getting a place in Europe, in Paris or Spain maybe, 'cos he really liked it over there, even though a bunch of French guys ended up macing him. He phoned me up straight afterwards: 'Izzy, man, I just got into a gnarly fight'. He said these guys were talking shit - though I don't know how he'd know 'cos he doesn't know any French." He pauses.

Maybe Izzy was talking about that 1989 trip or maybe Axl went there again in 1990.

I think Axl said something onstage in France in 2010 or so, probably referring to that fight. He said that the first time he was there, some French guys on the street called him Bon Jovi. That would explain why he thought they were talking shit about him even though he didn't understand French  Very Happy

Haha Smile

In the Howard Stern interview from July 1990, Axl mentions he still has a broken finger from the fight so I suppose it can't have been from a trip in 1989, because the finger should have been fixed in 7 months?

Could Axl and Izzy have gone to Paris together after the Chicago/New York period? Izzy was interviewed in Paris by Face Magazine (published in October 1989) and as you say, Axl mentions he was in Paris about a year before the Spin interview that was released in November 1990.

True. Maybe Axl went to Paris in 1990 for a second time because he liked it there the first time.

I don't think they were together, because in August (when the Face magazine interview with Izzy was conducted) Axl was in New York again. He guested at a Tom Petty show on Aug. 26 (gnrontour.com). He was also seen at a Paul McCartney concert there (I have the newspaper clipping) and he shot a video with Michael Monroe in New York around the same time.
