While fans and the press chase after Axl Rose, lead singer and leader of the group, the other musicians enjoy their free time relaxing by the hotel pool.

US: In regards to the American tour, will the band's lineup be the same as in Rock in Rio?
 
Pitman: It’s difficult to say, but I believe so. At the moment we are just very tired, as we’ve been rehearsing continuously for the past two months. I'm kind of tired of music right now.
 
US: Did you know that your audience at Rock in Rio must be one of the biggest at the festival?
 
Pitman: Really? How many people?
 
US: If it’s sold out, 250,000 people.

Robin Finck: Well, I don't know yet, we just got together to do this show.
 
US: Does Nine Inch Nails plan to come to Brazil one day?

US:  Will you participate in the recording of the new Nine Inch Nails album?
 
Finck: I don't know.
 
Brian 'Brain' Mantia
 
US: Do you intend to return to work with Primus?

US: So you are a permanent member of Guns n' Roses?
 
Brain: Yeah, you could say that.
 
US: Did you play drums on the band's new cd?
 
Brain: Not on the whole record, but yes, I made some recordings.

The translation looks correct as far as the content goes, but it would be good if a Portuguese speaker could have a look at it.
