Axl Rose QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
Basically life on the road is hotel rooms and planes - unless you have a lot of security with you.
Quotation of Axl Rose
But at the same time, Guns N' Roses was a big thing. How do you walk away from that? It's a very complicated thing, I think, for everybody involved.
Quotation of Axl Rose
But it's always different every night. You never know which song is gonna get you excited.
Quotation of Axl Rose
But they can spot me there no matter what I'm wearing, so I don't even bother trying a disguise. They just assume that's my new look.
Quotation of Axl Rose
Duff walked out on it, and I walked out on it, because I wasn't allowed to be any part of it.
Quotation of Axl Rose
I always loved Queen, so that's very exciting for me.
Quotation of Axl Rose
I can't say that there's any one song that I really look forward to doing; hopefully something will spark my emotion and I'll really have a good time.
Quotation of Axl Rose
I don't know about, like, as far as aggressive goes, but I really like the new Fiona Apple.
Quotation of Axl Rose
I don't personally believe that was the interest of Guns or Slash, I don't believe the right song was the interest. I mean, what people don't know is, the Snakepit album, that is the Guns N' Roses album. I just wouldn't do it.
Quotation of Axl Rose
I don't think everybody should be worshiping me 'cause I was around before them.
Quotation of Axl Rose
I go back to listening to Queen - you know, we're still hoping to have Brian May come in and do some tracks, and I got a fax today that he's coming in - Queen had all kinds of different-style songs on their records, and that's something that I like.
Quotation of Axl Rose
I just wanted to be good enough to be able to contribute what was needed to this main album. It took working on the majority of these things and at least the couple albums' of material to figure out what should be on the first official Guns album.
Quotation of Axl Rose
I just, you know, I pretty much work on this record and, and that's about it. It takes a lot of time.
Quotation of Axl Rose
I like Nine Inch Nails, and I like hip-hop.
Quotation of Axl Rose
I like to be real private; you don't always want everyone around you - even when they like you.
Quotation of Axl Rose
I pretty much stay to myself, and that's about it.
Quotation of Axl Rose
I really felt burnt out a lot on the last tour we did. It was very hard for me to be out there because all of the songs were a part of my past, and I wanted to get on to my future.
Quotation of Axl Rose
I really liked the Seattle movement.
Quotation of Axl Rose
I was involved in a lot of lawsuits for Guns N' Roses and in my own personal life, so I didn't have a lot of time to try and develop a new style or re-invent myself, so I was hoping to write a traditional thing, but I was not really allowed to do that.
Quotation of Axl Rose
I write the vocals last, because I wanted to invent the music first and push the music to the level that I had to compete against it.
Quotation of Axl Rose
I'm not a computer-savvy or technical type of person, yet I'm involved with it everyday, so it takes me a while.
Quotation of Axl Rose
I'm not working on all this to keep it buried. We plan on getting out there and doing it right.
Quotation of Axl Rose
It really hasn't been straight time on the road. It's been three or four month jaunts, and then you have a month or two off.
Quotation of Axl Rose
It's like, I think people really wanted to do different things other than try to figure out the right record here for Guns N' Roses.
Quotation of Axl Rose
Learning the old Guns songs and getting them up, you know, putting them on tape, really forced everybody to get them up to the quality that they needed to be at.
Quotation of Axl Rose
Limp Bizkit is fun. The White Zombie stuff is fun.
Quotation of Axl Rose
No, and I don't want to be in a situation again where I have to depend on other people and have... start all over.
Quotation of Axl Rose
Once the energy was figured out by the new guys, how much energy was needed to get the songs right, then it really helped in the writing and recording process of the new record.
Quotation of Axl Rose
Probably the easiest place for me to get around in is L.A.
Quotation of Axl Rose
Right now we kind of feel obligated to play the hits, and while that's a little hard on us, we feel that to do a good show and give the people what they want, we have to do that.
Quotation of Axl Rose
So in that sense, I think it is like old Guns N' Roses as far as, like, the spirit and the attempt to throw all kinds of different styles together.
Quotation of Axl Rose
Sometimes your friends are your lovers, or have been at one time.
Quotation of Axl Rose
That was a big difference between myself and Slash and Duff, is that I didn't hate everything new that came out.
Quotation of Axl Rose
That was their choice to leave. Everybody that's gone did it by choice. Matt was fired, but Matt came in attempting to get fired and told many people so that night. So it's kind of like everybody left by choice.
Quotation of Axl Rose
The new guys are a lot of fun, and like I say, we will be continuing to look for and or decide who the official new guitar player will be, but it's not that important to the band at this time, as that person's not really needed.
Quotation of Axl Rose
The record will be about, anywhere from 16 to 18 songs, but we recorded at least two albums' worth of material that is solidly recorded.
Quotation of Axl Rose
The second leans probably a little more to aggressive electronica with full guitars, where the first one is definitely more guitar-based.
Quotation of Axl Rose
There will be elements of blues-based things on the new Guns record. It's a very diverse record. There's a lot of hip-hop beats, there's straight-ahead rock.
Quotation of Axl Rose
They really didn't think I was going to figure out a way to make a record, didn't want to help really make a record. Everybody kind of wanted what they wanted individually rather than what's in the best interest of the whole.
Quotation of Axl Rose
To be honest, it was a long time for me since Guns N' Roses as the old lineup had been fun, and the new guys have been a breath of fresh air. People are really excited about what we got.
Quotation of Axl Rose
We had to quit the show early the other night - and that's only the third show we've had to cut short for technical reasons or riots, or whatever - and that bothered us a great deal. We still care very deeply about every song we do.
Quotation of Axl Rose
We were trying to make things work with Slash for a very, very long time... about three and a half years.
Quotation of Axl Rose
We've been able to push some of the guitar parts a step farther, that had he been here, it's not something that would have been considered, and I wouldn't have been rude enough to attempt to do that. Robin did a great job, but we've been able to up the ante a little bit.
Quotation of Axl Rose
What we're doing is we're rehearsing with different guitar players, and we're still recording. I'm doing the vocals. I'm about three-quarters of the way through, and it's a very difficult process for me.
Quotation of Axl Rose
Where now, I think, we would consider Jane's Addiction one of the great rock and roll bands in the last however many years. They were a great band, they were a bit ahead of their time. I was a very big fan of them, and Dave.
Quotation of Axl Rose
Why I chose to do it that way is that, you know, I can sit and write poetry 'til hell freezes over, and getting attached to any particular set of words... I felt that I would write to those words in a dated fashion, and we really wouldn't get the best music.
Quotation of Axl Rose
With most of the songs, we put everything we had into them when we recorded them. So each night, whether you're into playing it or not, you have to rise to it.
Quotation of Axl Rose
Yeah, I have a full studio, and that causes me great pain and pleasure.
Quotation of Axl Rose
You could find ways to blend all kind of things. It really just takes the right song.
