Interviews with Slash and Wendy Laister (Guns N' Roses tour publicist)



Transcript:
----------------

[Interview with Wendy Laister at the venue]

Interviewer: What are they doing now in the stadium?

Wendy Laister: This is the second day of preparation. And you can see that about half of the stage has gone up. They’re putting the lights up today, and by tomorrow everything will be finished at around 4:00 in the afternoon.

Interviewer: When are they coming to sound check?

Wendy Laister: It’s not really a sound check as other bands might do. They’ll come tomorrow afternoon and check the equipment.  

Interviewer: Are they coming themselves, the band I mean?

Wendy Laister: No, the band themselves don’t come down. It’s all technicians who work – each band member have their technician who work with him.

Interviewer: And when is the band coming to the stadium for the first time?

Wendy Laister: The band comes to the stadium about an hour-and-a-half before the show is scheduled to start.

Interviewer: What about the song list? You were telling me something very interesting about the song list.

Wendy Laister: Unlike most stadium bands of this - big bands, they don’t have a setlist. Each night is different, which makes it very exciting for the audience. It makes it very difficult for the technicians, they have to be absolutely 100% on the board all the time. But it means that the show can be – it feeds from the enthusiasm of the audience.

[Commercial break]

Interviewer: What can you tell me about the rumors that are associated with the band, the burning of the flag and the boots story?

Wendy Laister: Those stories are extraordinary. They’re completely untrue. There’s not even one grain of truth in the stories. The band has been excited to come to Argentina. Which is why it was one of the countries on the South American tour, and it’s the first time they’ve ever been here and they’re very excited to come (?)

Interviewer: How come they talk about these stories though?

Wendy Laister: For some reason, Guns N’ Roses is followed by rumors wherever we go. The press likes to – they’re a very controversial band for the media.

[Cut to interview with Slash]

Interviewer: Thank you for the interview. Slash, I’m very happy because you are here, and I want to know some things of Guns. Guns is the number one group in the world. What’s next?

Slash: I don’t look at us as being number one in the world.

Interviewer: Oh yes, I think you are.

Slash: I’m just happy that the kids like the band, so we can keep writing songs. And the people still enjoy listening to us, so we can keep – it’s sort of give-and-take now. As far as what’s next, last night Axl, Gilby and I were all talking about, you know, the next record and what –

Interviewer: And you?

Slash: Huh?

Interviewer: And you, Slash?

Slash: And me what? Yeah, and me. Yeah, Gilby, Axl and I. Anyway. We were talking about what the next record is gonna be like and how we’re gonna go about it. And everybody’s just really excited. I still don’t know exactly what’s gonna happen, but I’m writing songs upstairs - you know, in my room, just playing -  Gilby’s writing songs, Axl’s got ideas. And so, it’s just like, videos are coming out... We’re busy, you know, so it’s good.

Interviewer: What do you feel being here in South America? Caracas, Chile? Next is Argentina.

Slash: Yeah, Argentina is next. It’s just great because everybody’s excited and everybody’s got so much spirit, you know; so I'm just having a really good time now.

Interviewer: Lot of energy.

Slash: Tones of it. And the kids just - the day of the show, is just like the whole place is [makes a sound as shaking], you know (laughs). It’s great.

Interviewer: What do you do to feel happy?

Slash: I smoke cigarettes (laughs).

Interviewer: Are you happy?

Slash: I’m very happy. Don’t I look happy? (laughs)

Interviewer: Yes. You look happy.

Slash: What do I do? I just hang out with the guys in the crew and the guys in the band, you know? And I have a couple of drinks, you know, and hang out.

Interviewer: You are like you are.

Slash: Yeah. And that’s it. That’s fine, you know. And I love playing. I love being on the road, period. And I love all the people that we have working with us.

Interviewer: I look you very well. What does this word mean to you: tenderness.

Slash: (touches her arm) It’s like that. (laughs)

Interviewer: Yes, tenderness.

Slash: That’s a big question.

Interviewer: Yeah! No, it’s a little question but it’s a big?

Slash: Yeah, it’s just real important. I don’t want to get into all the details of it, you know; especially since I just got married. (laughs)

Interviewer: Hate?

Slash: Hate, that’s a strong one too. I can’t say that I practice that one too much, because it’s too negative an energy to have around you all the time. So, I don’t really hate anybody.

Interviewer: Violence?

Slash: That’s bad. I see a lot of it. I see it at our gigs, on CNN – English speaking TV that we have here. I just see a lot going on and I don’t – violence is just something I hate. I just –

Interviewer: You hate violence?

Slash: Yeah, yeah. That too has so many – you can go on forever about violence.

Interviewer: Drugs?

Slash: Drugs, you know, I’ve had my days. (laughs)

Interviewer: Love?

Slash: That’s great.

Interviewer: You’re in love?

Slash: Yeah.

Interviewer: Is it good?

Slash: Yeah, yeah. I just live with that. You know, we write songs about it. It’s a very emotional bunch of guys, let’s put it that way. So, all these emotions – I mean, we get into it in detail.
   
[Live footage – Commercial break]

Interviewer: What is the best and the worst thing as a guitarist in Guns (?)

Slash: The worst is, probably, having that responsibility and that pressure of people looking at you and expecting you to do something. The best part about it is just the fact that this is what I do for a living. I’m blessed, because I get to do what it is that I love doing every single day of my life.

Interviewer: Playing guitar is like making love for you?

Slash: Almost like that (laughs).

Interviewer: Do you think you can change something in the world with your music?

Slash: That’s stretching a little bit. I don’t like to think that we’re making some sort of big message. You know, I don’t like to think of this like that. We’re just there, and if you like it you can go for it. And as far as making any changes in the world, it’s like, yeah, well, whatever happens, happens, as long as it’s positive. I don’t want to cause anything negative. One of the things that I regret about Guns N’ Roses – it’s a great rock ‘n’ roll band, but it generates a lot of tension, you know?

Interviewer: Energy.

Slash: Yeah. And, sometimes, I see people hitting each other, people throw things. And then I’m just like, “What’s the point?”

Interviewer: Why?

Slash: I don’t know why. I mean, I don’t know why people do that. I like the fact that it’s hyper. I love that, but at the same time everybody’s got to be considerate of everybody else that’s around them; and that doesn’t happen all the time.

Interviewer: How is one ordinary day in your life?

Slash: I just - let’s see... Order room service, play guitar all day, and watch TV (laughs). That’s about it, and at night we go out.

Interviewer: Do you go to the supermarket and...?

Slash: Nah. I hate supermarkets and I hate gas stations. (laughs)

Interviewer: Me too.

Slash: Cuz everybody looks at me funny, you know, and I get a little shy.

Interviewer: December 10th is the International Day of Human Rights. Do you want to say something about it?

Slash: I think it’s a good day for everybody to express themselves, you know? I don’t wanna get real detailed about it (laughs).

Interviewer: What do you expect of Argentina concerts exactly?

Slash: Well, the last two gigs that we just did – Caracas, right? We just made it out of there before all that happened, right? But the kids, like, really appreciated us and it was great. Then we went to Bogota. This is two really tense places to be. And they kids, they’re starving for it. You know, they’re just like, “Give one good day in the week to go out and watch a rock ‘n’ roll band.” So, as for all the next gigs, I figure they’ll all just be sort of like that. You know, they all have their own energy, but it’s really positive, it’s really good. So it’ll be great. I’ve really good hopes.

Interviewer: Thank you very much for this interview, and we hope that Argentina...

Slash: (?)

Interviewer: And that one there is for you, huh? Only for you? No, for Guns.

Slash: No, well, my old lady (?)

Interviewer: Oh, okay. You want to know one word in Spanish? “Te quiero.” “I love you.” “Te quiero.”

Slash: Te quiero.

Interviewer: “I love you.” Thank you, Slash.

Segments from the press conference



Transcript:
--------------

Slash: I don’t wanna speak on Axl’s behalf, but I’m just saying this did not happen. So we’re having a great fuckin’ time. You guys just look a little tense.

(Laughter)

Slash: And if you look at the response outside the hotel, the kids there are excited. I don’t think they give a shit about anything. They just want to have a good show. I think that people – they’re just trying to build up a lot of crap. You know, people make up rumors and everybody wants to believe them because Guns N’ Roses is supposed to be, like, the bad boy band, right? But it’s getting a little old. We’re just touring, right? We’re having a great time. And I don’t think all this rumor stuff (?) to us all the way through South America this far. So, I have no complaints.

Duff: Also, you know, as far as the reaction Slash and I have been talking about in Latin America right now. We haven’t (?) together down here. So, you know, 1) that couldn’t happen, 2) I haven’t (?) and Slash hasn’t. We came down here to do this. We love playing, which is why we’re down here. So, I don’t know why people are coming up with these conclusions.

[Question in Spanish]

Interpreter: He wants to know, if the fact that you are big has changed the group – the attitude of the group.

Slash: I think it makes it a little bit rougher around the edges to keep it all together and to keep focused. But because there’s been so much hype and so much hysteria around the band, it’s made us a lot closer as a group, which means the materials have a lot more integrity. And we’re, sort of like, really striving to be what we originally started out to be, just because there’s so much stuff going on in the outside; and so much – I don’t know the best way to put it – so much conflict with us and the media, and so on. So it makes us bond together as a family, and I think that’s really important for us. So, I think, it’s been - for the band it’s been sort of a plus as far as really going where we’re coming from.

[Break]

Slash: One of the most important things about Guns N’ Roses is that it’s a rock ‘n’ roll band. I hate to use that cliché, but that’s what we are. And, so, I think because of the fact that we’re a rock ‘n’ roll band, we generate a kind of – for kids, especially, it’s just like the sense of getting away from everything and going crazy for a little while. A lot of stuff happens when there’s 60,000, 80,000 or 100,000 people when you play, with all this loud music and this excitement that’s generated. And I don’t think that we condone it; I don’t think that we’ve ever promoted any kind of violence. As far as kids go, you might want to take your chances. That parents are concerned about their children going to a show, I can understand it. Really. Even from my point of view, I can understand it. But this is what we do, and everybody has to be smart enough (?) to figure out how to handle it. Obviously, people are interested enough to go out and buy the tickets and want to be there. And, being there, they’re taking their chances. That’s the deal. We’re not promoting any kind of – we’re not (?) controversy, we’re not promoting violence or anything like that. It just sort of goes along with the territory with this band. It’s just been there ever since we started. I don’t think any of us members sitting here today can ever tell you exactly why that is. It’s just that.

Duff: Also, we’re giving out this press conference, which we don’t do in every city. We don’t do press conferences. As Doug, our manager, said, the reason we’re doing this is to clarify a few things up, because all these rumors are flying. And where do they come from? Not from us. They come from the press, you know. So, that’s why we are here, to clarify a lot of these really ugly, kind of silly and stupid rumors that are happening, and it makes us sick, you know? We’re here to play, we’re here to make people happy, and it’s really gotten out of hand. That’s why we’re coming down to do this. We’re just a rock ‘n’ roll band, you know?

[Question in Spanish]

John Reese: One minute. There’s...

Slash: Let her ask.

John Reese: Specifically for her question about violence in Chile? Excuse me, ma’am.

Female: Yeah.

John Reese: Specifically your question about violence in Chile. The violence in Chile that you’re hearing about is simply overblown, okay? Everything that you’re hearing about us is simply overblown. It’s situations that are occurring. You have somebody viewing with a police officer a small situation and the press overblows it like that’s happening all night long in the entire stadium. People are depicting small minute situations and making it blown up to be, like, incredible, theatrical (?)

Doug Goldstein: Also, John - I would also like to add that we care so much about the security of the fans, that we spend more than any other group, and I defy any other manager to put his numbers and his personnel against the level of experience that we have, up against what we have. We spend thousands and thousands of dollars just upon people that we carry with us and their knowledge is extensive as far as working event security. So, we take more precautions than I think anybody else in the industry far and away.

[Question in Spanish]

Interpreter: (unintelligible)

Slash: I think it’s sort of a sense of trying to hold on to a little bit of privacy. I think it would be the best answer to that.

Daniel Grinbank (promoter): (talks in Spanish)

Slash: One important thing is, as a rock band we really don’t travel thinking that we’re as much of a media sensation as I guess we are - because you guys are all here, right? (laughs) But, after a while, it gets a little difficult, because we don’t have any time to ourselves, and you guys – I won’t insult you as a whole, because I don’t know any of you individually, but you, press people, can be really aggressive and it’s like, “fine”; after a while it’s like, “Fuck you.” (laughs) You know? There’s a time and a place for everything.

Daniel Grinbank (promoter): (talks in Spanish)

Doug Goldstein: Also, I’d like to say, we have been touring for seven years together. And this is the first time that we’ve ever seen – I mean it’s great, but we’ve never, ever seen the type of reaction that we’ve seen with the press and with the fans. It’s more hysteria than we’re certainly used to. And, to be honest with you, a lot of people get afraid when you have press people pushing this way, the fans pushing this way, you have nowhere to go. It gets a little scary.

Slash: I might add that in some distorted way we do appreciate all the attention. We just don’t know what to do with it. (laughs)

[Break]

Slash (laughing): The funny thing is, as fucked up as we are, how anybody considered, like, seeing us as being racist or having any kind of opinion about anything, where we would say this is wrong or right. You know, this thing’s sort of (?). It’s sort of funny.

[Question in Spanish]

Interpreter: What do you think about (?) that compare you to Zeppelin or (?) Rolling Stones?

Doug Goldstein: (?) her daughter.

Duff: (Laughs) Is she over 18?

Slash: I think I can speak on behalf of everybody in the band. We all appreciate the comparison, but we don’t fuckin’ know. The fact that we’re so popular and the people like our music, is the only reason that we keep going and the reason we’re still inspired to be here. So, as long as that’s going, and that’s hard enough to do on its own, we can’t deal with this publicity thing, where we’re just like this, “Rolling Stones,” and blah blah blah.

[Break]

[Axl joins the press conference]

Doug Goldstein (to Axl): I was just explaining, just so that you know - there was a question asked, why the magazines and the photographers aren’t allowed, and I was explaining our friendship with Robert John and Gene Kirkland, and that, since they’ve been supportive of us, we’re supporting them.

[Question in Spanish]

Interpreter: You’re very popular, you and the band, and your face is on a lot of merchandising. You’re good looking for women. Is it hard for you to have another life far from (?)? A life of your own?

Axl: Yeah, there’s not much privacy. Privacy is very valuable.

[Question in Spanish]

Interpreter: What’s the good part and the bad part to be in such a popular band?

Axl: That’s a big question (laughs). The bad part is that there’s no privacy. And there’s a lot of great rewards. The best part is, the feeling at a show, when we played in Bogota and it began raining in November Rain and the people were so happy and we were happy. And that song had been, like, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] for 60 weeks there. So, that was really special. That was one of the most special times I’ve had.

[Break]

[Question in Spanish]

Interpreter: Why are you wearing the Argentinian football shirt?

Axl: Because it was given to me. (chuckles)

[Question in Spanish]

Interpreter: Doesn’t it mean anything to you?

Axl: Well, in light of the false stories in whatever papers, I think it’s a good gesture for me to wear it.

[Question in Spanish]

Interpreter: What happened in Chile, at the concert? He asks whether you went two hours late because you did drugs and drank...

Axl: (Laughs)

Interviewer: Then afterwards you came (?)

Axl (to Doug Goldstein): Was I two hours late?

Doug Goldstein: No.

Axl: I wasn’t two hours late. Um... (looks at Goldstein)

Doug Goldstein (to Axl): One hour behind.

Axl: We were about an hour behind, which means we were about a half hour behind.

Doug Goldstein: (unintelligible)

Axl: Yeah. The show was scheduled at 10:00, which means we usually go at on at 10:30, so we went on at 11:00. And I don’t have time to be drunk or drugged before a show, or I couldn’t do my shit. The truth was that I had strep throat, so, it’s like, I had to do a lot of throat exercises and things like that, and work with my doctors, so that I could do the show altogether, or there wouldn’t have been a show. People will write anything (laughs).

[Question in Spanish]

Interpreter: (unintelligible)

Axl: If I could sing it. I didn’t know the music.

Interpreter: (unintelligible)

Axl: The crowd was throwing bottles and spitting a lot, because they thought that’d be a thing to show they liked the band. They hit our rhythm guitar player with a bottle, so there were many times we almost stopped the show.

[Question in Spanish]

Interpreter: Why did you now take (?) to talk to the Argentinian press, after not really doing that for a long time?

Axl: (Nods and smiles) Well, also because of the things that went on in the papers down here. I don’t even know what paper or what writer or who said what about me. All I know is that I’m seeing fights outside right now, people burning Guns N’ Roses t-shirts, other people beating the crap out of them. Now there is a mess outside. People throwing bottles every now and then, hitting little girls in the head... So that’s why I came down.

[Question in Spanish]

Interpreter: The press conference with the other guys was a bit aggressive, and he wants to ask you, what do you expect of the show, to change (?) the press conference?

Axl: I’m doing what’s nice. I don’t care if it’s aggressive.

Journalist: The press conference was very aggressive for the band. And I think it’s very nice (?)

Axl: Wow. Why didn’t he say that in – (laughter). I think the shows will be really nice. I’m a bit concerned with an element of people at the show or outside the venue that were affected by the story of me flag burning and not taking my boots back to America or something. I think that might be an element outside the arena and that might be an element inside, and I don’t want anybody in the crowd to get hurt. It’s like, we’re pretty much a target up there, and now we deal with it at every show, cuz you never know where you’re gonna have a crazy that could shoot you or whatever when you’re up on the stage. But I don’t like seeing people in the crowd get hurt. And that’s when I’m a little concerned about that, we’re gonna try to monitor it the best we can. And if I see anything going on onstage, I stop the show to try to stop it. I don’t care if it’s all the way in the back. When we played Portugal, in Lisbon, they were throwing (?) and throwing candles at each other. We kept stopping the show to try to stop it. By the end of the show we had it about 90% under control. But, I mean, we do the best we can; I’m worried about that though.

Interview with Axl (dubbed in Spanish)



Sort of/more-or-less transcript (the result of automatic Spanish transcript --> auto translation with some adjustments, and what I could hear in English - the Spanish overdub is not a faithful translation of what Axl says, anyway). Corrections more than welcomed.

--------------------

Interviewer: Axl, welcome to Argentina. Thank you for this exclusive interview with TELEFE. We will be having your show on live for a few minutes. I just want to welcome you all to Argentina. Your arrival has been a bit noisy and tumultuous with all these things coming and going, but...

Axl: It’s been an exciting day. (chuckles)

Interviewer: Well, first of all, tell us how the tour has been going in South America.

Axl: I think everything’s been going pretty well. The shows are really big, because a lot of other rock bands don’t necessarily always make it down to South America. There’s been some different confusions and different problems arise, like in Chile, because the people putting out the shows aren’t used to organizing this kind of big show.  But I think everything has gone pretty well. The media – and CNN has kind of jumped on - has presented the details a bit more exaggerated, over-exciting in a negative way.

Interviewer: The press conference that you gave this afternoon was somewhat aggressive towards the band, especially by the media that don’t know much about rock ‘n’ roll and the music. I would like to ask you about some things, different things that we’ve received in Argentina, like that you said, “I’m gonna take my boots off when I leave Argentina,” that you wanted to burn the [Argentine] flag – I mean, I heard all these things here before your arrival in Argentina. Do you want to clear it up now?

Axl: Yeah, and I don’t even know the name of the man who said these things. I’d rather burn him. (chuckles) But I don’t know enough about Argentina to ever say anything to disgrace it, or to be disgraced about being in Argentina.  I don’t want to take anything away from the country or capitalize on anything. I haven’t come to spit on the territory or offend anyone, because I like the feeling from the people at the shows here in Latin America and how much they’re into us, and there are many people who like us a lot more. I’m watching out my window, and I see that there are people who are in favor of Guns N’ Roses and there are those who are attacking our fans because of all the things they’ve read. But I understand that they’re offended, because if someone said that in America I would see the youth get behind that feeling and something similar happen.  But I don’t know if these people know the truth of what happened, that there’s this man who was really irresponsible and obviously doesn’t care about the Argentine people. He doesn’t care for what kind of violence can happen because of false stories like that. I believe that this violence is reflected in what is happening outside the hotel right now, people are attacking girls because of a person who was very irresponsible for putting out statements that we never made; a person who was greedy, selfish and angry that they weren’t the ones working with us on this tour; a guy who is involving innocent people who can get hurt in a series of situations, and I don’t want anyone to get hurt.  

Interviewer: Things have been adding up. I mean, from Venezuela that there was an attempted coup, then in Colombia the shows were postponed and there were some minor incidents outside the stadium. After that, the press reported about some problems you had with drugs in Chile. Now that you’ve come here all this has been accumulated, and all these different rumors had been around here in Argentina before your arrival. On the other hand, I can tell you that it’s a minority, and the people are waiting to see the show, to see Guns N’ Roses.

Axl: It’s a minority that has now chased the majority to the other side, the majority that is waiting to see the two Guns N 'Roses shows. But, it’s like, it only takes one person to cause a lot of damage at the show, so, minority or not, someone shoots the singer and the show is over. (laughs)  

Interviewer: We’ve heard that the South American tour has really been a great success for you up to now. What expectations do you have for the shows at River [Plate] tomorrow and the next day? Tell us a little bit about the shows. What is the real reason you are in Argentina?

Axl: We’ll give everything that we’ve got to the shows and to the people. At the same time, I hope that we can clear up a little bit of the confusion that has been created from what was in the papers; and, hopefully, we’ll show people that rock and roll is not that bad of a thing. We’ll perform all the songs that the people want to hear and we’re doing this so that we have a great show. I wanted to do this interview because I don’t want people to hurt each other at the show because of a group of people who are angry about statements that don’t exist. We, as Guns N’ Roses, haven’t said anything like that, it’s somebody else.

Interviewer: Our show is gonna be on the air in a few minutes, and it’s a great audience. And I’m sure there are people who are listening to you now that have sort of overcome the fear that has been created for the rock festival, fear that anything might happen.  And they know that Guns N’ Roses will give them the best show they can and that’s what we all expect to see.

Axl: All I can say is, yeah (laughs). I’m wearing this shirt [of the Argentine national team] and I'm not a fake, I’m not doing it to just look good. It was given to me and I feel good. I wouldn’t wear it as -

Interviewer: It’s not a publicity stunt.

Axl: I wouldn’t be here doing this if it was just a publicity stunt. I wore the shirt as a gesture of piece, because I really want everything to go well at the shows, and I’m not doing it just so we can pull the shows, get paid and leave. And if I had a problem with Argentina, we just wouldn’t play here.

Interviewer: You could cancel the whole thing.

Axl: Yeah. Yeah, I’m very famous for that.

(Laughter)

Interviewer: Many people that have obtained tickets are waiting for you, for Saturday, tomorrow, and for Sunday also. I’d just like to thank you for this interview. The band, this great band is gonna be here in Argentina, one of the biggest bands that has come here in recent times, and of course we all want to see  what you’ve been doing over your world tour. And we hope that these minor incidents that have been popping up have nothing to do with the show.

Axl: I want to say that, if people come to the show because of what they’ve read, they shouldn’t believe everything they read. There’s a lot of people that for some reason want to stop rock ‘n’ roll, they’d like to stop Guns ‘ Roses or they’re against rock ‘n’ roll and they don’t want people out there to have a good time - why that is, I don’t know. And to take a moment to think, and to be a bit more responsible and not throw bottles or anything, because we want everything to be nice, we want everyone to have a good time at our show, and that is all 100%.

Interviewer: I think the people are right behind you, because that’s what they’re expecting from this kind of festival. This kind of incidents are common, they don’t only happen abroad, they also happen here, on a national level.  I believe that what you’re willing to do is going to show that the concert is what really matters.

Axl: You know, South America and Mexico have always been the most exciting people for us to play to. We did a show in McAllen, Texas when we were opening for Alice Cooper, and there was 5,000 people and the majority was Mexican. It was one the most exciting crowds we’ve played to. And that's why, after that and other shows, we wanted to come back to South America. Slash and I have really had a great time in the South American tour, and we have toured the world - I mean, we just did the stadium tour in the U.S. with Metallica and that was very good for us, but the last show we did in Chile was much more exciting. And we hadn’t realized that Guns N 'Roses was so big here in Argentina.

Interviewer: Possibly, or obviously, this is one of the main reasons that these shows are so important here, for all this kind of rumors that have been created, and also why the expectation is so big, because there’s been talk for a long time about the band coming to Argentina. And now that it’s finally happened, there’s all this kind of inconveniences that could occur anywhere in the world.  

Axl: I think that part of it is that South America is much more emotional than the rest of the world. And that’s something that relates to us, because we’re an emotional band, we relate to people who are angry, and the South American people seem to get a lot into that and express themselves in a much more different way.

Interviewer: So, the band will give everything they’ve got tomorrow.

Axl: We will. [...] It’s like a prize fight or like the final of the football world cup, we come to give everything we have.

Interviewer: Thank you very much for this interview. Hopefully, it helped to clarify the whole situation a little bit. Have a good show tomorrow and on Sunday at River.

Axl: Thank you.

Interviewer: Thank you very much.

I first saw this video in 2002 when I downloaded it from DC++ and after all these years I can tell you that one thing that still remains one of my biggest aggrevations is that there's a Latin speaker overdubbing Axl. I can't hear shieet Axl says and I have always wanted to find a guy speaking their language who could translate what Axl says in this video. Maybe now is the right time and *the right place* , pretty please? Smile
