Axl Rose Compares Himself To Donald Trump


Axl Rose had a lively evening at Guns N’ Roses’ reunion show at the Troubadour last night in Los Angeles. According to a fan, during the third song in the set he fell down and possibly tore his pants, but he got right back up as if nothing had happened.

A fan also quoted Rose as saying, “You guys chose the setlist…I’m just here like Donald Trump…I consult myself.”

Former Guns N’ Roses manager Doug Goldstein discussed Donald Trump’s admiration of Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose in January on the Talking Metal podcast.

“We’re playing 5 shows at Madison Square Garden in 1992. I hear, ‘Is Doug Goldstein around?’ I look, and it’s Donald Trump. I said, ‘Yeah, this is Doug Goldstein.’ He said, ‘Can you make a pass for me?’ I said, ‘Yeah sure.’ So, being quizzical, I said, ‘Why are you here?’ He said, ‘I want to meet the Donald Trump of rock and roll.’ I said, ‘I give up.’ He said, ‘You know Doug, when you’re an underdog, everybody puts you to the top. Press, your fans, and once you get to the top, they jerk your ass back to the ground. That’s what Axl Rose is.’ So I introduced Axl to him after the show.”
