On Instagram, Guns N’ Roses photographer Katarina Benzova posted a unique picture of the band’s iconic frontman Axl Rose having a special moment with famous actor Arnold Schwarzenegger at Coachella four years ago.
As you might recall, the legendary hard rock band Guns N’ Roses officially announced as the headliner of Coachella in 2016 following the news of Slash and Duff McKagan were rejoining the band. On the day of their reunion, AC/DC lead guitarist Angus Young also joined Guns N’ Roses on the stage of Coachella 2016.
Recently on Instagram, Guns N’ Roses photographer Katarina Benzova revealed a rare photo of Axl Rose and the famous actor Arnold Schwarzenegger taken at the backstage of the band’s concert at Coachella four years ago.
Here’s how Katarina Benzova described the rare moment on the caption of her post:
“‘Come with me if you want to live!‘ can go both ways in this situation. 😜
Apparently, Axl and Arnold’s friendship went way back to the 1990s when Guns N’ Roses song ‘You Could Be Mine‘ was released as the theme song of Arnold’s iconic film ‘Terminator 2: Judgment Day.’
During an interview about the film, Arnold, Axl, and Slash talked about their collaboration for the film and also their friendship outside of work. Slash revealed that they used to hang out all the time and Arnold even gave the whole band black letter jackets made exclusive for the Terminator movie.
