Weiland Defends Axl - A Top Story This Week

Weiland Defends Axl was a top story for this week. Here it is again: (antiMusic) Evan Serpick from Rolling Stone sat down with Stone Temple Pilot's frontman Scott Weiland for an in-depth interview. They of course discussed the STP reunion and the bad ending to Weiland's run in Velvet Revolver, but Scott also stuck up for Axl Rose, saying he might be getting more of the blame than he deserves.

Here is what he had to say: I was in a band where at the end, it was pretty much three against one. And so I'm pretty sure that it felt that way to Axl as well. I have to say this, and I'm not just saying this now because of my situation I went through, but I heard a lot of great Guns N' Roses stories you guys in the press will never hear. Everyone has made Axl out to be this horrendously crazy person, this bad guy, and I don't know him very well at all. He and I for whatever reason got almost tricked into this little media spat for a moment because one of our band members happened to run into him and said that he said something.

So, my point being that having been in a band with Velvet Revolver now for five and a half years, I'm not quite so sure that it was all Axl's fault. It's like, why does it always have to be the lead singer. Matt Sorum in front of my face, he was the sweetest guy in the world. But there were some times, out of the blue, the guy just randomly hated me. We all carried our own baggage in that band. In a sense, that's why people were intrigued, you know, especially for the first couple of years. Because they were kind of waiting on the trainwreck to happen. They just thought it would happen a lot sooner. - Read the interview at Rolling Stone
