Alan Niven Gives New Interview
Former Guns N’ Roses Manager Alan Niven gave an interview to the Appetite for Distortion podcast where he talked about Guns N’ Roses, Izzy Stradlin, Axl Rose and more. He had some eyebrow raising comments about former rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin. Niven said the following:
“My hypothetical speculation is that moment came and went, and they should have involved him in the last tour. I would think that Izzy is pretty angry that he wasn’t treated with equality, and wasn’t a part of this tour. He did get as far as flying out and doing a soundcheck, and he left after a soundcheck, he didn’t want to have anything to do with it.”
“It was last year, it was somewhere out in the midwest, when they were doing stadiums. Obviously had it gone well and everybody had been happy, and there had been a little bit of brotherhood, I’m sure he would have stayed with it. But something must have really upset him, because he left after the soundcheck, and never turned up for another one or an appearance. I would think right now he is probably a little pissed off.”
Niven also credited Erin Everly and Meegan Hodges for helping bring Axl Rose and Slash back together. Everly is Axl Rose’s ex, while Meegan is Slash’s current girlfriend.
It’s not an opinion, it was a piece of information I was given, and that doesn’t surprise me that the girls were able to put a little bit of oil on the water and bring Slash and Axl together.”
