Axl Rose’s First TV Interview in 20 Years (video)
Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose made a rare TV interview appearance last night, as he sat for a chat on the late night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! Though less than hard-hitting, the interview had its share of memorable moments. Rose’s penchant for tardiness was a recurring theme, with Kimmel noting at one point that Rose had a quote from Oscar Wilde – “Punctuality is the thief of time” – framed in his house. There was also some discussion of Halloween, with Rose revealing that he has a Halloween tree (similar to a Christmas tree, but with a Halloween motif) in his home. Rose also said he once dressed up as an ear of corn to mark the holiday. “We have a saying in Guns N’ Roses,” Rose said. “When somebody’s gonna get yelled at, they’re gonna get the corn. So one year I was the corn.” Guns N’ Roses are set to kick off a 12-night residency at the Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas on Oct. 31.
