During a recent interview with Appetite for Distortion podcast, former Guns N’ Roses manager Alan Niven has revealed an untold story about how Izzy Stradlin revolt against frontman Axl Rose at the middle of a huge world tour.
Here’s the story:
“I’ll never forget Izzy [Stradlin] bursting into my hotel room on about the third date of the first national tour that the band had done, they were opening for The Cult. Izzy just bursts into my door, doesn’t even say ‘hello’ or anything, just pushes past me, flops onto the sofa, looks at me and I go
Niven: ‘Izzy, what up?’
Izzy looks at me and goes:
‘That fucker makes us miserable every fucking day.’
And I look at him and go
‘Yeah, well you know Axl’s got issues. We know this, he’s Axl, but we are on tour. Let’s see what’s working and what the bright side is.’
The point was, it was stress and anxiety around that entity from the very get-go. It wasn’t particularly lighthearted.”
