Slash’s 15-year old son London Hudson and his Classless Act bandmate Nico Tsangaris were recently interviewed on the Appetite For Distortion podcast, and London was asked about Chinese Democracy.
“I never really listened to it until I first heard it live, like ‘Chinese Democracy,’ then I looked up the song. I really didn’t know what the album was for a long time.”
He added, “I mean, you see everyone wearing Appetite and Use Your Illusion shirts, not Chinese Democracy.”
Nico chimed in, “Poor Axl.”
London also said, “You go to a Guns N’ Roses show now, you still won’t see people wearing Chinese Democracy shirts.”
London said his father is excited to be back with Axl Rose in Guns N’ Roses.
“He seems really excited to play, that he’s able to do what he loves with the guys that he loves. It’s cool, because a lot of the Velvet Revolver stuff I don’t remember how he was acting, but you can tell he’s excited every show. He’s nervous before every show to play. He does his 20 minutes of solitutde before the shows, still.”
