In a recent interview with Guns N’ Roses Central podcast, Izzy Stradlin’s collaborator Timo Kaltio has revealed an untold story about how Izzy has reacted to classic line-up reunion of Guns n’ Roses.
The conversation transcriped by Alternative Nation as follows:
“We did a boat ride over to the O2 arena, my girlfriend and I hung around backstage for the whole show (Guns N’ Roses at the O2 Arena in London in 2012, which ended up being the final shows Stradlin played with GNR).
Every now and then Izzy [Stadlin] would go over and play a few songs. It was actually interesting because you can really feel the vibe about the people around, and how good it feels to connect with the people.
And I was like, OK cool (laughs). But, obviously, [they] never got around to do any more live shows or anything like that. That was his decision and I respect that.“
“Now when he got off the stage at that show, did he express something like: “wow I feel like the old days, something I’ve been missing,” or was it something that he just did, went home and went to bed?”
“I don’t want to talk about putting words into Izzy’s mouth or anything but I did get the feeling that he did enjoyed [the performance], a lot.”
“I mean, that’s all that you can ask from him, he didn’t have to do it and he showed up and did the O2 show. It was a “wow” experience as fans to see him, so if you see hi-“
“Oh he’s a musician! What do we musicians do? We go and play and that’s what we did.”
