Billy Howerdel talks about working with Axl Axlbil10

In 1997, Robin Finck gave me a call (on my landline, duh)
He had just got an offer to go down to the GNR rehearsal studio to play some guitar. He wanted me to help him program sounds. After about two or three days, Axl and I hit it off and although I was fully planning on pursuing my own music at the time, Axl seem to believe in me enough to offer me a position to be involved in the making of the new GNR album. This position was loosely, defined, started with programming guitar sounds, but quickly moved into incorporating computer recording into their workflow. I was at the beginning of learning this craft which I started absorbing on the NIN and David Bowie tours and Axl was kind enough to hire me to work, but also learn and figure things out as we moved into this new era.
It was an interesting and educational 2 1/2 years and I have to say, Axl was one of the most supportive People when it came to believing in what would become a Perfect Circle.
He was a generous, empathic and inspirational man.
Thank you Axl and happy birthday!

Thanks for bringing me into those GNR sessions Billy. It was a fun couple of years and Axl was a very generous guy and great to work with during that time. Definitely wishing him a happy birthday.
