Axl Rose Takes Negative Stories Personally
He admits he's suffered from poor-timekeeping all his life, and regrets touring with Guns N' Roses in 1991 as the classic lineup began to disintegrate. But in a candid interview with That Metal Show he finds time to laugh at himself and joke about what he does in his downtime.
"It's like two decades of people talking and most of the time they're talking about things somebody who had a bias started. They could have said them jokingly," Rose says on That Metal Show. "'Axl's a dictator' – I know exactly where that started. It started with a woman who was interviewing us and Izzy called me 'the Ayatollah' in the interview. It just rolled from there. It didn't hit me I should nip this in the bud."
Asked how he manages not to take things personally he says: " I think I have, then I have to work at getting over it. It takes a really long time." A lot more here.
