Hot headed singer speaks in his first TV interview for over 10 years

Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose has not ruled out reuniting with his former bandmates Slash, Duff McKagan and Izzy Stradlin if they are chosen to be inducted into the Rock N’Roll Hall Of Fame.

The band’s former guitarist Slash said earlier this month that he was unsure whether he and Rose would reunite should the band be inducted, but the singer has kept the door open for such a reunion.

Asked about the band’s nomination and how he felt about it, Rose replied: “Elton John asked me to induct him. I am very proud of that, still. I don’t know what [the nomination] means in terms of me and the old band. I don’t know – that is still all up in the air. It’s an honor to be on the nomination and I know there is definitely an element of the fans that really like that.”

The singer was speaking in his first TV interview for over 10 years, which he did with That Metal Show and which you can see by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.

Rose also spoke about how much he was enjoying working with the current line-up of Guns N’Roses and that he was very pleased with how the band’s much delayed album ‘Chinese Democracy’ had turned out.

He added: “I feel great with the line-up and the chemistry and stuff. I feel the right people helped make ‘Chinese Democracy’ and the right people are playing that want to be here.”

He also spoke about the possibility about releasing some of the material that didn’t make it onto ‘Chinese Democracy’, saying of the chances of new material being released: “Yeah, we’re trying to figure it out, We’re working with new management and feeling things out in the US as we are going throughout the country.”
