A Guns N’ Roses fan discussed talking to Tommy Stinson at a live Q&A about having a song he wrote for GNR rejected for release by Axl Rose>. EricStacey discussed his experience on MyGNRForum.com.
“I asked if any of his solo stuff was intended for submission for GNR-said he gave a song which Axl sang vocals to that they did not or will not use. I cant remember how he worded it. Says he wishes he could get it back. You could see and hear the regret over GNR not working out like he thought it would when he talks about the experience.”
A Green Day member recently revealed a ‘shameful’ Axl Rose photo. EricStacey added, “Seemed almost apologetic about how they tried, mentioning issues with management and record company. I wanted to ask more but he almost seemed uncomfortable talking about some of it, which I get , but I told him the band sounded great live when he was in it, which he agreed. It wasn’t a bad experience, wish it was better organized (other people started showing up early during the meet and greet for instance).
I know meet and greets with bands are a pic then you move on , so I guess it’s hard to complain, but not sure I would do it again. Also think they sold about 20 tickets too many, it was pretty crammed for the concert. Did say he and Axl left on good terms, as he has said before. I’m assuming the song he was talking about was Going Down? Or is that the Izzy song? I’ve been off the boards for the most part.” An AC/DC member recently discussed a horrible Axl Rose performance.
