Guns N’ Roses Member Agrees With Slash Over Axl Rose Acting Like a Dictator
Original Guns N’ Roses guitarist Tracii Guns recently told Eddie Trunk on SiriusXM what led to his departure from the band. He revealed Axl Rose’s attitude and being “angry” and how Axl Rose acting as a dictator to the band is what led to him quitting the group. He also reveals how Duff McKagan accepted Axl’s behavior due to the large crowds at shows. He said the following in his exchange with Trunk
Guns: What had happened when I did leave, finally [was] Axl [Rose] was hanging out with somebody that I went to high school with actually or junior high school and had disappeared for like, a week. The next time I had seen Axl was at soundcheck at my second to last show and Axl had just started dictating to everybody and he was angry. It was like:
“Who is this guy? I don’t know this guy!”
Guns: We had been living together for almost a year and it sucked because that show was absolutely packed to the gills. It was at this place called The Timbers Club in Glendora and the band was on fire, you know? Yet me and Izzy [Stradlin] were just looking at each other from across the stage like:
“This is weird…”
Guns: All of a sudden we weren’t connected to Axl. You know like he had taken over his space and was really talking a lot and we weren’t playing a lot.

28 Years Ago Axl Rose Walks off Stage During “Welcome to the Jungle”
Guns N’ Roses would play two shows in Finland in 1991. The second show went reasonably well. The first show, Axl Rose randomly walked off the stage during “Welcome to the Jungle.” This happened mere weeks before Izzy Stradlin played his last show with the band at the end of August in 1991. Guns N’ Roses were on the “Get in the Ring” tour and an hour in to the show, as the band launch into Welcome To The Jungle, Axl leaves the stage. The rest of the band plays an instrumental version of the song and continue the set with 14 Years, a drum solo and a guitar solo. After 25 minutes, Axl returned. The first show in Finland was Guns N’ Roses first show in Europe as art of the “Use Your Illusion Tour” and it was an unusual show since the band opened with Mr. Brownstone, which is normally the second song in the set. During the show Axl also thanked the crowd for giving them the band “Hanoi Rocks”

Nicolas Cage Talks About Living Like Axl Rose
Actor Nicolas Cage was recently interviewed by Consequence of Sound and brought up Axl Rose saying
“I heavily prefer to not go out. I’d rather just stay at home. I don’t think I can decompress ever again, even at a karaoke bar. It’s too vulnerable. I’m not trying to complain. It’s a fact of life that I have to accept. I’d much rather let my work and not my personal life speak for me. Rob Zombie once said to me, ‘Be as normal in your own life as you can be, so you can be as messed up as you want in your art.’
That’s what I want. I want to be on the Axl Rose program. I don’t want to go anywhere. I just want to look at my aquarium, look at my sea horse, read my Murakami, watch Bergman. I’ve been on a great Bergman run. I just saw The Virgin Spring, Hour of the Wolf, Persona. I also love Tarkovsky. I love The Sacrifice. I looked at Stalker again. I have all the time in the world in between movies to lose myself in these maestros’ films.”
