Legendary Keyboardist Talks About Axl Rose & Upcoming Album
Dizzy Reed gave an interview to The Rock Pit where he talked about what Guns N’ Roses front man Axl Rose and his gig with AC/DC. The exchange about Axl Rose is below:
“Andrew: Oh definitely! What was it like working with Axl Rose when you initially started out with Guns N’ Roses? And has there been much of a change from then to now as far as the creative aspects and how Axl works?
Dizzy: The main thing is that they work really hard, Axl works very hard at what he does in every aspect of what everything is. Noone works harder than that guy and that’s what I’ve learned, a lot of us want to do this and get into rock music because we don’t want to work and don’t want to go 9 to 5 and in the end when you realize you want to do this for real and you want to play in the big leagues, you would be working way more than everybody possibly even works. Like me right now, I’m working right now! [laughs].
Andrew: [laughs] Yeah I guess that’s it, people get into music because they don’t want a typical day job I suppose.
Dizzy: Yeah so I’ve learned a lot from Axl and all those guys.
Andrew: Speaking of you being in Australia at the moment, what are your thoughts on Axl Rose performing live with AC/DC?
Dizzy: I think it’s kick butt man! It’s amazing and you know what’s just as cool is when Angus sat in with us [laughs]. That’s a wonderful thing all around for everybody.”
The legendary keyboardists upcoming solo album “Rock N’ Roll Ain’t Easy” is releasing this week and is available through Golden Robot Records. Dizzy won’t be playing the full album on tour, but he intends to cover some songs from his first solo record and throw in some deeper Guns N’ Roses cuts.
