Han fortæller at han ikke kunne sige noget dengang pÃ¥ grund af juridiske restriktioner. Sandheden var, at han var syg, og det havde intet med pelsfrakker eller basketball spil at gøre.

Axl: “I already got sued for about, everything I own . . . fuckin’ corporate radio and sh*t. Now we’re back on tour . . . I did cancel the first show, at about six in the morning. My manager told me he canceled it and then didn’t. And then Clear Channel wanted us to f*ck up, because they wanted to end the tour. ‘Cause they had some sh*t going on in Florida or something… I don’t know… a whole bunch of bullshit. But I got really sick; it had nothing to do with fur coats and basketball games, you know. I love Philly. I came to play here a few times and I really liked it. So I said, ‘OK we’re gonna risk it, what if we can throw in a show in Philly?’ So it’s good to be here. I want to apologize for my part of that. You know, so… I’m not saying I’m innocent.”

Axl udsendte et Ã¥bent brev samme dag, hvor han fortæller grunden til hvorfor han takker nej til at dukke op for at modtage nomineringen og hyldesten til Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame, der finder sted den 14. april. Læs den fulde tekst her. Læs mere her.

“…That said, I won’t be attending The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction 2012 Ceremony and I respectfully decline my induction as a member of Guns N’ Roses to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. I strongly request that I not be inducted in absentia and please know that no one is authorized nor may anyone be permitted to accept any induction for me or speak on my behalf. Neither former members, label representatives nor the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame should imply whether directly, indirectly or by omission that I am included in any purported induction of “Guns N’ Roses” This decision is personal. This letter is to help clarify things from my and my camp’s perspective. Neither is meant to offend, attack or condemn. Though unfortunately I’m sure there will be those who take offense (God knows how long I’ll have to contend with the fallout), I certainly don’t intend to disappoint anyone, especially the fans, with this decision. Since the announcement of the nomination we’ve actively sought out a solution to what, with all things considered, appears to be a no win, at least for me, “damned if I do, damned if I don’t” scenario all the way around..

Golden-Gods

Samme dag afholdes Revolver Golden Gods 2012, hvor GnR var nomineret som bedste liveband. Men den faldt til Avenged Sevenfold. Slash var ogsÃ¥ nomineret i “Riff Lord” kategorien, og vandt. “Best bassist” blev Nikki Sixx (DJ Ashba var ogsÃ¥ tilstede). Slash spillede med Alice Cooper pÃ¥ “Schools Out“. [Kilde]

14 – Slash, Duff, Gilby Clarke, Steven Adler og Matt Sorum dukkede op til Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame indføjelsen, og takkede alle undtaget “en vis sanger”. De spillede tre sange fra “Appetite“med Myles Kennedy pÃ¥ vokal – “Sweet Child O’ Mine“, “Mr. Brownstone“,  og “Paradise City“. Se videoklip her. Se Slash og Steven Adler interview her.

17 – Axl sender et Ã¥bent takkebrev til Cleveland, GnR fans og alle der støttede hans beslutning om at boykotte det. Læs hele teksten her.

“…I seriously didn’t plan on or expect the overwhelmingly positive response and public support for my decision regarding the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. With such a generous outpouring of solidarity from fans, media outlets, writers and other artists, I’m truly humbled, blown away and unbelievably relieved! To be honest, I thought it would go the other way and was just hoping to weather the storm. As I said, I sincerely didn’t want to disappoint anyone. It gets old being the outlaw even if “it’s only rock and roll”.

21 – Ifølge Dailyrecord.co.uk efterlyste  GnR 20 smukke modeller til at fylde den forreste række ved det kommende show i Skotland. Bandet promotor, inviterede 20 modeller fra All Talent backstage efter showet. Bumblefoot kommenterede dette. Læs nedenunder.

 “The band’s promoter contacted Sonia and asked if she could provide the band with models for the gig. He asked Sonia for 20 of her prettiest models to stand in the front row and wow the band while they’re performing. The girls have then been invited to join Axl and the boys backstage for drinks and they’ve even asked Sonia if she can arrange a party for the band. Axl and the rest of the band love girls from Scotland and they want to party in Glasgow. No other band has ever requested models from the agency to party with a rock band before, so this a first. But then again, it is Axl Rose.”

Bumblefoot: “Hey all, I have nothing to do with this – (dailyrecord.co.uk)….Nor do I decide when the shows start – when you’re waiting, so am I.”

21 – GnR spiller et privat show i St. Tropez, France. GnR blev specielt inviteret til et bryllup, hvor Bryan Adams spillede før GnR gik pÃ¥ scenen kl. 02:20. Prisen for rigmanden der skulle giftes, var 1 mio. dollars for GnR. Ingen info pÃ¥ hvor meget Bryan Adams tjente. Showet slutter kl. 4 om morgenen og varede 1t. og 40 min. Izzy spiller med pÃ¥ 11 sange. Bumblefoot var temmelig overrasket over at der ikke var ét show tilbage, sÃ¥ hans planer mÃ¥tte ændres.
Sætliste: You’re Crazy (m/Izzy Stradlin), Welcome To The Jungle (m/Izzy Stradlin), It’s So Easy (m/Izzy Stradlin), Mr. Brownstone (m/Izzy Stradlin), Used To Love Her (m/Izzy Stradlin), This I Love, 14 Years (m/Izzy Stradlin), Dead Flowers (m/Izzy Stradlin), Rocket Queen, Estranged, Live And Let Die, Street Of Dreams, Sweet Child O’ Mine, Don’t Cry, Nightrain (m/Izzy Stradlin), Patience (m/Izzy Stradlin), Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door (m/Izzy Stradlin), Paradise City (m/Izzy Stradlin)

Bumblefoot‏: “Wow. Diverted without info (or gear or clothes or sleep) to play a wedding in France. Yep. Guess it’s not *one show left*…”

Fernando, HTGTH: “Just posted on gunsnroses.com – I need to make time to post and read htgth/gunsnroses.com for what’s what in the gnr world. Sorry about that – My message responded to someone saying that “people” are reading too much into bumble’s crew comment.

I too believe that a lot is being made of a simple heat of the moment venting session. We were all tired, but we too were also happy to embark on a private show to St. Tropez. To suggest that we (GNR) would think less of the crew, and/or put them in harm’s way, or exhaustion; is mistaken. And anyone in the crew can vouch for what I am saying.

We chartered 6 planes back and forth, in which allowed band and crew to travel with ease and not what might be lead to believe by some, after reading Bumble’s tweet. The show in St. Tropez, was by far the easiest gig to date, for our band and crew. Even Izzy was there!

Just really bums me out that Bumble wrote something to suggest we didn’t care about our crew. We are a family away from our homes which have been together for some more than 10 years and respect one another.”

Dj Ashba: “Just finished playing a Private concert in St. Tropez, France. It was great having Izzy back on stage with us. G’nite!! 1 more show to go!!!! Then I’m home bound.”

Bumblefoot: “That was actually fun as f*ck & everybody was so sweet. Now, ONE show left. Then I get home, continue spine treatments, & think about what brings the best/worst out of me & what needs to change.”

Bumblefoot: “Oh geez… seems some people are blaming Axl for the difficult logistics the crew had at the end of the tour with the extra gig thrown in. Allllways blamin’ the singer…. my fault, I went on a twitter rant 😛  He doesn’t plot out the travel itineraries between shows, not how it works. The planners did the best they could to make everything happen, was just no way to make it easy on the crew. On a positive, once upon a time tours had canceled shows, now they have added shows… so there. 🙂 Thank you all again for being such great audiences everywhere we went 🙂 Made a lot of new friends that I hope I’ll be seeing soon……. :)”

09 – I et Rolling Stone interview med DJ Ashba, afslører han, at Axl har tonsvis af musik som han gerne vil have DJ skal arbejde pÃ¥. Han taler ogsÃ¥ om de kommende shows for Bridge School velgørenhed, og Las Vegas Residency. Læs hele interviewet her.

“[Axl Rose] has tons of stuff done [and] recorded that he’s played for me and wants my input on. Axl’s put together such a talented group of musicians and there are so many songs that are already worked out. So we’ve got a good jump on it, for sure.”

20 – Første akustiske show af to for Bridge School Benefit i Shoreline Amphitheatre, Mountain View, CA. GnR optræder ved Neil Young’s Ã¥rlige velgørenhedsshow, og det livestreames. De gik pÃ¥ efter Eddie Vedder spillede et par numre kl. 22:35 lokal tid (07:35 dk). Axl synger forkert i “WTTJ” – slÃ¥r næsten over i “You’re Crazy” for et øjeblik. Axl’s stemme er pÃ¥ ingen mÃ¥de i form efter den sidste turné. Eneste nummer der er værd at lytte til er “Patience“. Bandet gør det udmærket men med et par fejl indimellem. “Better” spilles akustisk for første gang. Dagen efter kom det frem, at Axl stadig (Ã¥benbart) lider af “strep thoat” (halsbetændelse), som gør det vanskeligt for ham at synge. Tommy, DJ og Dizzy reklamerer for showet og sms til at give penge til velgørenhed.

Axl var stadig ikke helt pÃ¥ dupperne vokalmæssigt, selvom folk der var tilstede, fortalte det modsatte. Axl og Neil Young duetterede pÃ¥ Young’s nummer. Hele bandet var tilstede til sidste sang i koncerten (“Rockin’ in the Free World“).

Samme dag kom det frem, at der var blevet protesteret imod GnR’s banner og reklamerne i Las Vegas, der viser kvinden der er blevet voldtaget, under overskriften “Welcome To Faboulous Las Vegas“, og krævede hende fjernet. [Kilde] Hard Rock Hotel udtalte sig om sagen:

“Hard Rock Hotel & Casino regrets that the GUNS N’ ROSES advertising for their current shows has offended any member of the community. The resort has decided to further modify the art and began the process of changing the materials.”

Hannah Brook, executive director for The Rape Crisis Center: “This type of advertising is simply unacceptable. Not only for just the victims and the message of violence it brings, but also for the community in general. This is not the type of message we want to portray to tourists that are coming to our city. We want them to know it’s a safe place to come, and by putting a message out there with Las Vegas above it is concerning.”

24 – Sidste show i The Joint. Izzy Stradlin er ogsÃ¥ gæst ved dette show. Holografien var ikke intro til showet. Axl efter 14 Years: “So, when we wrote this song… Izzy was like like ‘nobody owns music, man’. Well, actually Izzy, it’s called copyright. Anyway, I get to the studio and the rest of the guys go ‘thank god you’re here, Izzy just ripped off Free Bird!’… I just had to share that story, at his expense of course” Bandet jammer herefter kort pÃ¥ “Free Bird”. Under “Don’t Cry“, dummer DJ sig og spiller soloen for tidligt, hvorpÃ¥ Axl kommenterer: “would have liked to sing that verse, would have been fun“. Efter sangen synger Axl fødselsdagssang til sin søster Amy. Beta spiller pÃ¥ bas før Paradise City!

December

03 – Axl taler om hvad fansene i Indien kan forvente af GnR:

On performing in India
I’ve always wanted to play in India. We’ve tried to make that happen but for whatever reasons it just didn’t work out. We’re all looking forward to coming there and performing for everyone.” When asked if he plans to travel to places apart from the cities he’s performing in, he replies, “That would be great! I’m sure the rest of the guys and crew will visit some other places. If I’m lucky I’ll be able to. Mostly I focus on the shows but if I have time I’m excited to explore India.”

On Indian spirituality
I’m interested in having a personal, first- hand understanding of spirituality and religion as well as politics and government in India,” he says. We pointed out that his Wikipedia page says that he had a keen interest in past life regression. Seeing as India is regarded as a spiritual haven by many, was that something he was keen to explore? “I’m not sure that what I personally believe or not is really out there publicly,” he replied. “Lots of people say and twist things and have done so over the years for their own purposes based on gossip, hearsay, unsubstantiated media nonsense and even outright lies, especially when money may be involved and/or if they’re trying to make problems for others. I do like to explore and consider lots of different concepts, ideologies, belief systems, religions etc, and have an understanding of what others feel, think or believe, but in my opinion, ultimately what one “believes” is their own business.”

India as a music destination
It does seem like bands or the touring/concert industry is really trying to make an effort to include India in their tours, more so now than in the past which I think is a good thing,” he says about the recent trend, adding that he would be open to collaborations while he’s in town. “With regard to collaborations with Indian artistes, I think there’s always the possibility of collaborations anywhere with nearly anyone.”

Dizzy Reed: “It has been a life long dream of mine to visit India. I’ve always been fascinated by it’s ancient culture and influential people. To be able to experience some of that while rockin’ and rollin’ with Guns N’ Roses, how awesome is that going to be? I can’t wait! For all of the GN’R fans in India, the wait is almost over! See you in December,”

Richard Fortus: “There are very few places in the world, left for me to cross off of my “must see before I die” list. India is at the top of that list, so needless to say, I am thrilled that we will be playing there. I’ve always been fascinated by the culture, the music, the art and films of India. I can’t wait!”

Tommy Stinson: “I’ve wanted to go to India since the first time I saw the James Bond movie Octopussy!!!! I’m totally looking forward to it!”

Bumblefoot: “I’m sooooo looking forward to coming to India!! To experience the culture, meet the fans and make new friends. And the food… I’m a ‘hot pepper junkie’, and you guys know about *hot* – ah yeah, I’m soooo ready 🙂 Thank you for having us!”

Frank Ferrer: “Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that i would be playing a concert in India. I am truly fortunate and can’t wait to see the Indian people go crazy for GN’R.”

Dj Ashba: “I am looking forward to performing for the beautiful people of India! This has been a lifetime dream of mine. Together we are going to create a party that people will talk about for years to come!”

Fernando Lebeis: “We are thrilled to finally have GN’R in India and know the fans have waited many years to see them live.”

12 - Show i Leisure Valley Grounds, Gurgaon, India. GnR’s tredje og sidste show i Indien. Axl tilegner showet til Ravi Shankar, der døde samme dag. Bandet kom tilbage pÃ¥ scenen igen efter “Paradise City“, og Axl fortalte han gerne ville spille et par numre mere – “TWAT” gik i gang, men Axl stoppede den og sagde de skulle spille “Nice Boys“. Tommy blev tilsyneladende mopset over at skulle spille ekstranumre, eller ogsÃ¥ var der et problem med hans bas, som Bumblefoot samlede op efter Tommy smed den da han gik af scenen(?) Efter sangen sagde Axl de gerne ville spille mere, men de fik at vide det skulle stoppe, sÃ¥ Axl smed mikrofonen og gik af scenen.
