Guitarist speaks out at Shockwaves NME Awards
The former Guns N’ Roses man was speaking in a video interview (watch it on the right) at the Shockwaves NME Awards on Wednesday (February 24).
“I am a Paul Weller fan but I didn’t even know he was up for the [Godlike] Genius award,” he admitted.
When asked who his idol was he said, “Pete Townshend. Today it’s Pete Townshend. Great songwriter, great personality and great fucking guitar player. I don’t know him that well, we’ve chatted a few times.”
