In the wake of the late Lisa Marie Presley’s unexpected death, music artists and other notable celebrities have flocked in droves to offer their well wishes to those grieving the loss. Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of the late Elvis Presley, unexpectedly passed away last week due to cardiac arrest.
As per People, Guns N’ Roses Axl Rose is remembering his close friend Lisa Marie Presley after her sudden death last week at age 54. The “Sweet Child O’ Mine” singer, who is now 60, told People in an exclusive statement that losing Presley still feels surreal.
“I will miss my friend Lisa. Her passing, just as her son’s, or as a kid, her father’s, doesn’t seem real,” he says. “Lisa loved her family, all her children. My heart goes out to them.”
Rose says that he knew his friend struggled with the loss of her son, and that he did his best to remind her that he was a pillar of support if she ever needed it.
“Her son’s passing was shocking, tragic and devastating. It was something that, at a point, you obviously didn’t want to bring up but awkwardly would in an effort to let her know you cared and were thinking about her, about them, and to be of any comfort one could, which she appreciated,” he says.
