Axl Rose For That Metal Show's Season Opener
The session will air on November 11 as part of VH1's "National Metal Day" (11-11-11). TMS host Eddie Trunk reports that during the interview, which included guitarist DJ Ashba, he asked Axl about the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame situation (band is eligible and nominated; we'll know mid-December whether or not they get in); new music, his lateness, this lineup, playing with Duff McKagan (Axl said Loaded will open some shows), and more.
Trunk kept fans posted on Twitter about the unfolding plans to secure the Axl interview after the gig, which he says GNR didn't start until midnight. At one point, Trunk wrote that the restless crowd were "now booing loud because [of the] late start." more on this story
