Guns N’ Roses’ Axl Rose is always late for his band’s concerts. Fans don’t like it, and either do promoters or venue operators. Why is he always late?
Well, in an interview with VH1’s “That Metal Show,” Axl basically says he’s been late his entire fucking life.
After the jump, at the end of the post, you can watch a clip of Axl responding to the question of why he’s always showing up late to gigs.
“Well, not complaining or to be a wuss or whatever, but a lot of times, the day of show, for some reason, things start going wrong,” starts Axl; I can already smell that bullshit percolating. “People are making mistakes — you’re making mistakes, they’re making mistakes — and nobody even knows why. It’s like things that you go, ‘Well, I should know this.’ It’s like everybody gets hit by A.D.D. or whatever. And so, you’re trying to sort through that, and get yourself in the right headspace and physical, whatever, that you’ve got to work through…It’s more like sports and having to play the big game. I think we’re doing better as far as that goes.”
Sounds like an excuse to me, considering he follows that right up with the “I’ve always been late” line. Watch.
