John Norris: ... for its off nights and for its legendary highs, played the first for the devil in 2000 light years from home. And they definitely got a rise out of the audience, when they brought on Axl Rose and Izzy Stradlin from Guns N’ Roses for a joint run-through of a song off the Stones’ 1968 LP, Beggars Banquet, called "Salt of the Earth".

Norris: The Stones held a very-low key post-show celebration last night for the 46th birthdays of Keith Richards and auxiliary horn man Bobby Keys, and for Richards’ wedding anniversary too. After tomorrow night’s pay-per-view concert, the band will play one more show in Atlantic City on Wednesday and that’s it – at least until they go back on the road next year. [cut]

Norris: ... The Stones tomorrow night when Kurt will bring you the News at Night from Atlantic City.

Well, Axl Rose may be jamming with the Stones in Jersey right now, but it was only last week that he was in Los Angeles, guesting on stage with another performer he’s often cited as a major influence, former Hanoi Rocks vocalist Michael Monroe. It was the first of Monroe’s four nightstand at L.A’s Whiskey club coming of the tail end of a month-long club tour to promote his debut solo LP, “Not Fakin’ It.” Axl, who appears in Monroe’s current video, “Dead, Jail or Rock ‘n’ Roll”, joined Monroe for a live version of that song. And, when Rose left the stage, Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash came on, and he and Monroe teamed up for a version of “Can’t Go Home Again”, an old MC5 song that the two performed together in Chicago several weeks back. We’re told both Slash and Axl watched each other’s performances intently, but their unwillingness to appear on stage together may be another indication that relations between the two band mates are still not completely thought out.

A few days before the Mike Monroe show, Slash turned out to see Jeff Beck and Stevie Ray Vaughan at the Los Angeles Sports Arena. Backstage, who did he run into but David Bowie. (a picture of Slash with David Bowie is displayed) The bearded Bowie was there to visit Vaughan, who played guitar on Bowie’s 1983 hit “Let’s Dance”. But he and Slash also seemed to be having a laugh over something and, as you can see, it was an opportunity for us to get a rare look at Slash’s face.

Journalist: Why have Guns N’ Roses when there’s been so much controversy over their lyrics with references to blacks, and homosexuals, and immigrants?

Mick Jagger: Because we want to appeal more to the gay/black market.

(Laughter in the room)

coincidentally, i was listening to Monroe's "Live At The Whisky" which sounded like a bootleg or a radio broadcast and sure enough Axl was there to sing "Death, Jail or RNR" but Slash came up for the encore to play "Looking At You", not the MC5 they said. But maybe they are refering a different show of the 4
