Wolfgang posted an exchange he had with a hater who referred to him as and i quote “immature little child with a bad attitude” and that he was only on tour with Guns N’ Roses because he’s Eddie’s son.
Wolfie replied to the hater saying: “Hey man, they can kick me off the tour anytime they want if it’s not working out. My last name may have opened the door but it doesn’t keep me here, and it certainly doesn’t write, record, sing, or play the songs for me either. I’m the one doing that. So I kindly suggest you eat my entire expletive.”
“Don’t expect to be off the tour anytime soon,”
Then Anthony added, “good return Wolf. Expletive those guys, keep killin’ it out there!”
Wolfie thanked people for all the support.

Brian May of Queen Talks Axl Rose and Slash
Brian May, guitarist for legendary band Queen talked to Ultimate Classic Rock and discussed touring with Guns N’ Roses and his relationship with guitarist Slash and frontman Axl Rose saying the following:

But Slash is an independent spirit. And boy, did h
