Axl Rose Says Success Pulled Original Guns N' Roses Apart

(hennemusic) Guns N' Roses leader Axl Rose has a new interview with USA Today where he speaks openly about a variety of topics, including his past, writer's block, the music industry, new music, the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, and GNR's history.

"Here's what I miss about old Guns the most. And this is really before we got Appetite [For Destruction] out," said Axl. "In the very beginning, you had three people (Rose, Slash and guitarist Izzy Stradlin) on the same page for a short period looking out for the best interest of that band and its goals. We were trying to get signed from the beginning. We were figuring out the right attorney, the right label. I had two other guys I could rely on. I don't necessarily have that now because it is more my thing, but I do ask everyone's opinion about everything."

On the topic of how the original band might have lasted, Rose explained "Maybe if we could have worked together in the way Appetite was put together. I was really na´ve. I thought the success of that record would bring everyone together more. It did the exact opposite. They got success and wanted to run in their own directions. I thought they'd go, 'Whoa, it did work.' But they wanted to do their own huge bigger success off of Guns." more on this story
