Seems like old times...


It was the best bad bar band ever to wreak havoc in Utah.

Guns n’ Roses’ Slash, Matt Sorum and Duff McKagan brought L. A. raunch to Slamdance, Park City’s other film fest, tearing through covers such as the Stones’ “Honky Tonk Women” and Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition” in support of “Soundman,” which includes Slash and Duff on its soundtrack.

It seemed like old times when Slash busted into “Welcome to the Jungle” — until, that is, he stopped playing. “It ain’t gonna happen,” he said and chuckled cruelly. As far as a reunion goes, we all need just a little patience. “When Axl’s head is together and he decides to put the band together, I’ll be around,” Slash said later. “It’ll be a lot more fun then.” Axl—oh, won’t you please take us home?


The life of Axl

“I was a serious songwriter in search of serious subject matter,” says Andy Prieboy about “White Trash Wins Lotto,” his ever-evolving rock opera based on the life of Axl Rose. “Then I imagined my neighbors—who are constantly writing bad musicals — stumbling across (G n’ R bio) “Appetite for Destruction,” by Danny Sugerman.”

The former Wall of Voodoo vocalist sat at his piano, laid down some dark, yet very Broadway, chords and dived in. The concept show soon replaced his solo sets at L.A.’s Largo. It now has 14 songs and 12 performers, and it was seen at Aspen’s U.S. Comedy Arts Festival this month (a cast album is also to come).

“I don’t want this to be structured,” Prieboy says. “We’re not theater twerps doing rock ‘n’ roll, we’re rock ‘n’ rollers doing theater twerps.”
