TRANSCRIPTION:

Interviewer: We’re right here with Axl Rose at Exposure 54. Axl, how you doing, bud?

Axl: I’m doing great, man.

Interviewer: How’s the album doing?

Axl: We'll start the album in about a week or so, and we’ve got a new track coming out in about three weeks.

Interviewer: Yeah, (?)

Axl: It's gonna be on a benefit album, with, like, Elton John and Eric Clapton and the Wilburys and shit.

Interviewer: Oh, great! Yeah, so do you like the girls here, the action? Do you guys ever play Exposure?

Axl: No, we haven’t played here yet. It’s like, I really like the club and it’s neat seeing  something this wild and this big in Hollywood, all the neon lights and everything. It’s kind of exciting. It’s a lot of fun.

Interviewer: Yeah. How’d you like that band (?)

Axl: That was pretty cool. I didn’t see much of it. This is my first night, like, being in a club married.

Interviewer: Yeah? Ohh, wow. And Gene Simmons is here.

Axl: Yeah, well, we don’t get along so well.

Interviewer: Oh, well, great. Great to see you. What’s the name of your new album coming out?

Axl: It might be called Use Your Illusion. We’re talking with an artist named Kostabi, because I bought a painting and we want to use it as a possible cover, and the title of the painting is “Use Your Illusion”, and that’s what we may use. I wrote a song the night before that says, “I bought me an illusion and put it on the wall”, and the next day I found a painting called “Use Your Illusion”, and [cut to another clip]

Axl: I want to introduce you to my wife, Erin Invicta Everly Rose.

Erin: Hello!

Voice-over: Axl has had many triumphs and successes. And to this day the world waits eagerly for the next Guns N’ Roses album, knowing that, without a doubt, when it arrives, it will reinvent the sound of rock ‘n’ roll; and once and for all prove that GN’R is king.

In a Swedish Sweet Child O' Mine documentary they credit the interview to "Exposure 54, Los Angeles (1990)", maybe it's some club employee interviewing him?

Interesting. Exposure 54 is mentioned in this article: https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/kzdpyz/deep-dive-los-angeles-sunset-strip

Exposure 54 is also mentioned in the interview itself (in the beginning), so we know that this is where the interview took place:

I think @Shackler suggests that the video interview might have been the club's production, like they were interviewing celebrities that went to their club for promotional reasons.

That's what I'm thinking. It seems likely. I haven't seen any other sources claiming this interview - not that I've done any intense research either. If there would be some production behind it I suppose they would say what production in the beginning of the interview, as usual.

Yes, this seems likely.

For the time being, I'm keeping it as "Unknown Source", but I'm adding the name of the club the interview took place at in the title.
