Guns N’ Roses Ex-Manager: Rapper Kanye West Humiliated At Guns N’ Roses Show!

GNR Ex-Manager: Kanye West Not Invited to Meet Axl Rose

In our interview with Doug Goldstein, former Guns N’ Roses manager Doug Goldstein was asked if he attended any Guns N’ Roses ‘Not In This Lifetime’ tour reunion shows. His response was that he hadn’t and that he heard Kanye West was left out in the cold at a recent GNR Show.

“No. [Former Guns N’ Roses tour manager] John Reese, when I was talking to him, he went to a show, he had passes for him and his now wife, and his daughters, and they went. They were back with Kanye West and a couple other people, one of the Brazilians, Beta’s family, one of the daughters comes out and only takes back Axl’s guests.

So Kanye got left there, a couple other celebrities, and John Reese. John Reese was the tour manager for the band, and he got embarrassed. So once I heard that I went, they don’t hate him, they hate me for some reason. They think I’m the guy that in 1993, when I was sitting with my wife having a child, that I was the guy taking the name back.”

Axl Rose praised Kanye West in 2008 in a chat with fans. He was asked about his thoughts about Kanye’s new album at the time selling more copies than Chinese Democracy. He responded by saying “I met Kanye at the Versace awards. He was very gracious. I love “Gold Digger” and told him so. I’m a big fan of his stage performance as he seems to go for it physically which I relate more to. Before our release, I sent him a message that any nonsense from the media had nothing to do with us and wished him the best. I’m humbled we’ve done as well as we have considering.”

Ex-Manager Doug Goldstein Makes Claim In New Interview

Former Guns N’ Roses manager Doug Goldstein claimed in a new Guns N’ Roses Central interview that Motley Crue ripped off the riff for “Dr. Feelgood” from Guns N’ Roses. He discussed the story when asked about Izzy Stradlin briefly writing with Guns N’ Roses in 1995, and if Izzy made it look like he would return full time.

“No, Izzy never led anybody to believe anything like that. Certainly not me, and I don’t think Axl [Rose] either. There is something worth noting, Dr. Feelgood, the Motley Crue song, that’s a Guns N’ Roses song. Slash and Duff [McKagan] wrote that riff. They wrote it down in Redondo Beach, when I was with them [Guns N’ Roses] were rehearsing, and Steven [Adler] would come down once a week, and Duff would come down five days a week, and they were jamming and they came up with that riff. Nikki is famous for taking a recorder to a club and stealing songs from bands, [they got it] because they recorded the recorded before we did.”

When asked if the band cared about the riff being lifted from them, Goldstein said the band didn’t really care since they were friends with Nikki Sixx.

“Slash did drugs with him, eh.”

He added, “They’re friends. I never pushed it, I brought it up, ‘Guys, hello, it’s that song.’ ‘Oh it’s Nikki, don’t worry about it.’”
