Guns N’ Roses singer Axl Rose Sits for Hour-Long ‘That Metal Show’ Interview
Axl Rose sat down with VH1 Classic's 'That Metal Show' early Sunday morning (Oct. 30) to tape an hour-long interview that will air Nov. 11 on the cable network. The interview was conducted several hours after Guns N' Roses performed at the American Airlines Arena in Miami. 'Metal Show' host Eddie Trunk reported in a series of Tweets that the reclusive star spent several hours deciding if he would actually grant the interview or not, and didn't show up until sometime past 5:30 AM ET.
"5:30 AM, got to this arena at 3P yesterday. Still here.... If this interview happens I might dose off for the first time ever in an intv," Trunk posted on his Twitter account at one point, followed about an hour later, by this post: "5 years after the radio interview, @axlrose has just done an hour interview for TMS. History made! Will air [Nov. 11] on VH1 Classic! Get ready!"
The radio interview he refers to was a May 2006 appearance Rose made on Eddie's WAXQ (104.3 FM) radio show, when the singer showed up and hung out on-air for two-and-a-half hours with Anthrax's Scott Ian, ex-Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach and others.
The on-camera chat is quite a coup for Trunk, as Rose has reportedly done little in the way of promotion for the band's latest album, 2008's 'Chinese Democracy,' granting only two interviews and answering fan questions on a GN'R message board.
The Miami concert was the second stop on a North American tour that is scheduled through a Dec. 17 gig in Vancouver, Canada.
