[On the plans for the rest of 2019]:
Slash: After South America, we’ll go straight to Europe and do the festivals over there. And after Europe, we’ll go back to the States and Canada to do our first Canadian tour plus some U.S. dates; and that goes until August. Then, after that, I’m gonna hook up with Guns N’ Roses. Guns N’ Roses has a small tour in October. And then, you know, there’s been so much talk about the Guns N’ Roses record, which we haven’t actually done anything with (laughs); so we’re gonna sort of focus on that. And the Conspirators will be some time coming up, depending on what Guns N’ Roses is doing, but I’ve already started putting together material for the new Conspirators record.
My two cents: Guns N’ Roses won’t work on a new record and Slash will go back to the Conspirators after the Fall tour with Guns N’ Roses.
Nirvana’s Ex-Manager Reveals Axl Rose Showed Up at Nirvana’s Concert in the Early 90’s.
Danny Goldberg who was Nirvana’s manager recently released his new book titled Serving the Servant: Remembering Kurt Cobain next week, and in a newly released excerpt he discusses Kurt Cobain brutally rejecting an offer to meet Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose at a Nirvana show in 1991.
“In Los Angeles, where Geffen was headquartered and much of the media was based, we wanted to make room for more people to see them so an underplay didn’t make sense. October 27, a month after Nevermind had been released, Nirvana headlined at the Palace Theatre, which had 2,200 seats, the biggest place Nirvana had headlined up until that moment, and the show quickly sold out. The band had been consistently playing great shows and this was no exception.
Backstage afterward, Eddie Rosenblatt told me that he had come with Axl Rose and asked if he could bring him into the dressing room to say hi to Kurt. When I conveyed this request, Kurt grimaced and said he really didn’t want to meet the Guns N’ Roses singer. I didn’t want to put Geffen’s president in an untenable situation, so I suggested to Kurt that he and I leave the dressing room and then I’d give Rosenblatt a couple of passes. That way it wouldn’t be like we were excluding them, just that Kurt couldn’t be found.
Kurt nodded and I walked outside, delivered the passes to Rosenblatt, and asked if he and Rose could wait five minutes for Nirvana to ‘change clothes.’ Then I went back in and grabbed Kurt and we ducked out a back door. Rosenblatt never gave me trouble about it afterward so the charade worked on some level, but I doubt it left Rose with a great taste in his mouth.”
