It's awesome, because there are interviews in this issue that we don't have. I'll translate them, but it'll take me a while (and then maybe you could proof read them).

If it isn't too much additional work for you, would it be possible to have better scans (or high resolution photos) of some of the pages? I can read them now, but it would be easier for me if I could OCR the French text, put it through google translation and then make corrections. These pages:

19 (Axl interview 1987)
23 (Slash, Duff and Steven interview 1987)
25 (Fred Coury interview)
63 (Izzy interview)
83, 84 (Duff interview)
89, 90, 92 (Slash interview)
94 (Robert John interview)

(I need only the pages with text, not the pictures).

EDIT: I edited the title of the thread a bit - I just put the date first, because it helps us sort the articles by date.

hey dude, i just read your post. I understand what you mean doesnt know till now that ocr exist..... no lol
i have good resolution 2160*2880,format before the compress for the site ofcourse. i ve try it and its works well for axl 87 interview, fiew bugs bt easy to b corrected . Do you want i email you original the original scans and u do it or i can if ,you let me time ?

axl interview begin like that for example:( i need be clear in my mind, a little wine abuz tonight, hehe)
Here is the first French interview of Axl that HARD FORCE MAGAZINE realized in July 1987 after the passage of GUNS N 'ROSES in Europe. This article began thus: "Their first EP had already aroused a certain interest near the specialized press and the underground scene of LA. Their album which leaves at Geffen, this month, pulverizes largely all the past productions of the year 87 by its originality and its quality. This album will propel them to the rank of the best bands of the moment, because if they persist in this way, they will certainly become as huge as MOTLEY CRUE, AEROSMITH or KISS. Their "glam-punk- rock "ignited the California club circuit in no time and we are already copying them."

Great! I won't be able to start working on it right away, so it would be fine if you can do it yourself when you have time. Otherwise, you can send me the high res pics and I'll do it sometime.

I can imagine how much time it took you to scan 100 pages. C'est très apprécié, mille mercis Smile

19 (Axl interview 1987)  Arnaud Durieux (Hard Force Magazine)

Here is the first French interview of Axl that HARD FORCE MAGAZINE realized in July 1987 after the passage of GUNS N 'ROSES in Europe. This article began thus: "Their first EP had already aroused a certain interest near the specialized press and the underground scene of LA. Their album which released at Geffen, this month, pulverizes largely all the past productions of the year 87 by its originality and its quality. This album will propel them to the rank of the best bands of the moment, because if they persist in this way, they will certainly become as huge as MOTLEY CRUE, AEROSMITH or KISS. Their "glam-punk- rock "ignited the California club circuit in no time and we are already copying them."

Axl: We really had fun during this first visit to Europe and I can't wait to come back here. We gave three concerts at the Marquee, the last of which was recorded. We are recording a lot of our concerts for a future live album and a video-documentary on the group, with a concert which will soon be filmed at Whiskey A Go Go in Los Angeles.

I understand you had a lot of problems with the police when you were still living in Indiana?
Axl: That's right, but you should know that they stop all long haired guys for nothing and I was their favorite target. At first, I was arrested just because I was drinking alcohol, which is forbidden if you are not 21 years old; then they put me in jail for anything. I may have spent 3 years in sheet metal accumulating all my stays.

Is that why you went to Los Angeles?
Axl: I went to L.A. several times before hitchhiking across the United States, to Florida, to New York, to San Francisco. I finally stayed in L.A. because it was the best place for me to emerge with a group. There is such a competition, so many kids and record labels. It is easier for groups because there are many clubs, and if you play regularly, you quickly create a good 'following': all the clubs want to take you because you drain the world. But you still have to be good to get there.

Why did you release this mini-LP whose two sides are identical?
Axl: When we were signed, we couldn't find the producer that would suit G N 'R. Also, at that time, we had no management and we had to try three in four months. Our fans have been waiting for a product from the group for a while, so we decided to publish 500 copies in L.A. so that these fans could listen to and have on disc titles like "Nice Boys" and "Mama Kin". We paid for everything out of our pocket to release this mini-LP and we must take this as a gift to our fans. Finally, the distributor wanted to press 20,000 copies to cover its costs. But we are going back to L.A. to record three other four live tracks for the B sides of singles. Geffen will then reissue the LP "Live?! * @ Like A Suicide" in another form. Already, we will remix it and there will be the four titles on one side which will bear the name of the mini-LP; the other side will consist of live B sides and will have the title "The Sex, The Drug, The Violence, The Shocking Truth"! There will actually be two front covers for the same mini-LP.

You adopt different singing styles on the album. "It's So Easy", for example, sounds very NEW YORK DOLLS.
Axl: This song was written by our former bassist and friend of the group, West Arkeen. He brought us a cassette with several titles and we found it so good that we jammed on it. I know it sounds like NEW YORK DOLLS, but I love this way of singing. On the album, I adopted five different song styles. But for us, "It's So Easy" is just a "polish punk song"!

What do you think of bands from the new wave of L.A. like POISON or more in your style, FASTER PUSSYCAT?
Axl: POISON? I'm not too interested in them. It is a group totally different from us; their audience is not the same, neither is the music. POISON is a group that may appeal to girls, but for the rest, I find their music without substance. FASTER PUSSYCAT is an interesting group. We know them very well, they often opened for us and we helped them find management. It is strange, because in Europe, I believe that people think that we have pumped everything on them, whereas the reverse has happened. They all adore G N 'R, attend all our concerts and especially on our rehearsal songs. I would not say that we are a really original group, but I believe more than them. On their album, I see at least two titles that they could have signed G N 'R. So, when people tell us that they are more original than us, I tell them to listen to the two albums.That said, it's very flattering to see that you influence others; AEROSMITH's new album is called "Permanent Vacation" and it's a phrase from our song "Reckless Life", it may have something to do with ...

We are just waiting for one thing, to see you in concert in France!
Axl: We would love to come, but friends have been there recently and told us that everything is pretty strict. They got kicked out of five hotels in one day! So, if we come, I think I will try to keep quiet and I will bring my girlfriend with me. We were supposed to come with AEROSMITH in September, but things are changing so quickly in the business ... We should have gone on tour as the opening act for Y&T and Ace Frehley. However, we plan to do the first part of MOTLEY CRUE at the end of their US tour.

Indeed, things will not have gone as planned. FASTER PUSSYCAT will replace GUNS N 'ROSES on the Y & T / Ace Frehley tour, but the cracked will win a significant first part in the States, that of THE CULT. (Interview originally published in HARD FORCE N ° 11 - Arnaud DURIEUX - 1987)
