“It was us and Metallica, and then Queen came out; you can watch it on YouTube, it’s probably one of the most incredible shows. I mean, backstage was David Bowie, Annie Lennox, Robert Plant, Elton [John]…
“Elton and Axl [Rose] did ‘Bohemian Rhapsody.’ You’ve gotta watch it; they just crushed.
“I’ve gotta say, that night was just… I remember meeting Elizabeth Taylor – it’s in my book. I drank with Liza Minnelli and George Michael. [Laughs]
“Just, one of those nights that you just will never, ever be able to… It was sort of like being in a dream world. Walking out, going, ‘Wow!’ Wembley Stadium – sold out.
“When I look back at – especially Guns N’ Roses, it’s just sort of a surreal feeling. It’s almost like watching a movie, somebody else’s movie, and you’re in it. It’s just so weird.
