1989.04.21 - L.A. Weekly - L.A. Dee Da (Axl) 1989_018

Transcript (excerpts):
-----------------------------

RACHTMAN-ANCHOR OVERDRIVE: Vowing to keep one foot in the gutter, one fist in the gold. Bordello and Cathouse proprietor Riki Rachtman will debut on MTV’s heavy-metal-themed Headbangers Ball April 29. Riki, who may have clinched the audition by bringing along pal Axl Rose, will interview local headbangers L.A. Guns, Junkyard, Faster Pussycat, Steve Jones, Little Caesar, Four Horsemen and Trouble. For now, he’s West Coast anchor: he’s waiting to hear if he’ll become a regular VJ on the show. Meanwhile, he’s about to try a fast track of a different kind — he’s off to Formula One racing school in Riverside.

I USED TO LOVE HER, BUT I HAD TO EAT HER: They don't call them Guns N’ Roses for nothing: in preparation for a recent barbecue at the home of ex-Cathouse security guy Mike Miller, several other Cathouse security dudes drove out to Pierce College and came home with a prancing porker. They trussed up this overgrown Arnold Ziffel, probably some kid’s 4-H project, in Mike's garage, where the Cathouse posse gathered to watch Axl use Mr. Hog for gunnery practice — and they said Ted Nugent was Luger-loony . . . ouch! After pumping the porker full of lead, Axl made a hasty exit in his brand-new black convertible Bimmer to avoid the arrival of the other sort of pigs. The scary thing is, the cops never even showed up — talk about the wilds of the San Fernando Valley! Mike then strung up, skinned and gutted the hapless porcine beast, threw it on the barbie, and a good time was had by all. All except the pig, of course.

STICKING TO THEIR GUNS: There are others who’ve squealed about Guns N’ Roses: the band had been set to headline an upcoming major fund-raising concert at New York’s Radio City Music Hall organized by Geffen Records prez David Geffen to benefit New York’s Gay Men's Health Crisis. Among the bands billed below GN'R were Whitesnake and Aerosmith — and considering that the Roses had opened for Aerosmith on their last tour, this was quite a big deal. Members of the GMHC, however, objected to the alleged homophobia of the lyrics in the GN’R song “One in a Million,’’ and had the band removed from the bill. Axl’s now considering doing an AIDS benefit of his own.

This must probably was the original source of the story about the pig.

And it obviously happened before the Depeche Mode movie premiere (discussed here):

So not only can we conclude that Axl didn't have such an incredibly busy night as we discussed before, but also that it is more likely that he actually shot a pig.
