Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose and Mickey Rourke were recently photographed together at Staples Center for the Wilder vs. Fury boxing fight. The photo has spread on Twitter, and people have bizarrely started mocking the rock and film legends. They’re survivors and aging, that’s a good thing! If they died young would they be celebrated by these idiots?
Axl Rose has a longtime connection to the film industry, which Rourke has been a longtime fixture in. Guns N’ Roses songs have been featured in numerous films over the years, and Rose recently told Atlas Magazine that he’d be interested in scoring a movie.
“Listening to movie soundtracks is a big thing for me. When you listen to stuff like Pirates Of The Caribbean and you get that blend of orchestra and modern instrumentation – it’s very clever. I have a lot of respect for the guys who do that. It is something that I would like to do at some point in the future.”
He also said Queen, who are featured in the new film Bohemian Rhapsody, are the greatest band of all time.
“For me, it’s easy – Queen is the greatest band and Freddie [Mercury] is the greatest frontman of all time. The band are the greatest because they embraced so many different styles.”
No, these are not two retired school teachers waiting for their grandkids dance recital to begin while their husbands find parking.
