Guns N’ Roses Founder Tracii Guns Discusses His Most Vivid Axl Rose Memory

Guns N’ Roses founder Tracii Guns discussed his most vivid memory of Axl Rose in a new interview with AL.com 

The exchange is as follows

You mentioned Axl Rose. What’s your most vivid memory from the first time you ever jammed with Axl, back in the day when you guys were first coming up?

Well, we spent so much time together that before I ever jammed with him we were at a soundcheck together where Hollywood Rose (a GN’R precursor band) and L.A. Guns were playing together. That was the first time I heard him sing, and it was him just checking the mic. It made the hair on the back of my neck stand up. I was like, “Oh expletive who is this guy?” [Laughs] And that’s a very vivid memory.
