Jonah Hill Revealed His Dad Used to Be Guns N’ Roses Accountant!
Last week actor Jonah Hill appeared on the Howard Stern show to promote his new movie “Mid90’s”, which see’s the actor make his directorial debut this weekend at the box office. During the interview with the politically correct radio host, Hill talked about his love of music and also revealed that his father Richard Feldstein was once a tour accountant for Guns N’ Roses. Hill made it clear that his father wasn’t exactly hanging out with members of the band and he was more of a behind the scenes kind of person. In a separate interview with CBS, Hill said the following of his Guns N’ Roses connection:
“It wasn’t like I was going to Guns N’ Roses concerts when I was four years old or anything,” Hill laughed. “And it’s not like Axl Rose is like, ‘Oh, I’m gonna go party with my accountant tonight!’ My dad’s, like, an accountant, you know?”
Guns N’ Roses touring members, backing vocalist Roberta Freeman and multi-instrumentalist Teddy “Zig Zag” Andreadis, recently recalled the infamous GN’R/Metallica 1992 riot in Montreal.
Teddy: “I’ll never forget we were down in the dressing rooms, I was sitting there with Slash… you can hear them going crazy…”
Roberta: “I was so scared… Teddy, you don’t remember what happened… the girls, the horn section… we got left behind. The limos got you, and Slash, and Axl, and Duff, and Matt out. And Dizzy out. And the girls were left behind and we had to wait it out.”
Teddy: “I didn’t know that.”
Roberta: “It just sounded like they were going to beat the doors down and get backstage and kill us… it really felt like Armageddon.”
They both went on to detail that Axl and the band themselves had no idea they were left behind. When asked how they feel their version of GN’R compares to others, Teddy replied:
“I think Roberta will tell you that we thought that our incarnation of the Guns band was the best.
“We had the singers, we had the horns and everything was done live… I thought we had the best band. There’s all these different incarnations of the Guns N’ Roses now, and you know it’s fine, but ours was something special.”
The riot took place on August 8, 1992. Metallica’s set was cut short after James Hetfield was horrifically injured in a pyrotechnics accident. The frontman was instantly transported to the hospital, but it took GN’R over two hours to grace the stage, only for Axl Rose to walk offstage six songs in.
