Angel’s Rock Report–Axl, Cornell, Metallica [AUDIO]
Guns n' Roses frontman Axl Rose sat down for his first TV interview in many years on Sunday -- but true to form, he was very late getting there. VH1's That Metal Show host Eddie Trunk spent 14 hours in Miami's American Airlines Arena waiting for Rose to do the interview. Axl finally showed up at 6:00 a.m. and spoke with Trunk for about an hour. But he did drop one bit of news -- Duff McKagan will open some shows for GNR on this fall's tour.
The interview is set to air on VH1 Classic on November 11th.
Chris Cornell (mmm, are you seeing this pic? HAWT!) is giving fans an early taste of his upcoming live acoustic album, Songbook. Cornell is releasing an EP today on iTunes called Songbook One that includes four tracks, including "Like a Stone." On November 14th he'll release Songbook Two, which features "Can't Change Me" and "Black Hole Sun." And on November 21st, he'll put out the entire album.
The promoters of that ill-fated Metallica show in India over the weekend have been arrested. The BBC reports that four executives at DNA Entertainment Network were charged with fraud after complaints that some fans were denied full refunds.
Metallica were set to play Friday night, but the show was postponed over concerns about the security barricade in front of the stage. Some members of the crowd charged the stage after the postponement, and then promoters couldn't get a permit on such short notice to pull off the show on Saturday.
Lulu, Metallica's collaboration with Lou Reed, is out today.
Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea just sold his Malibu home for $3.1 million. He'd been asking just under $five million before slashing the price this summer.
