AXL vs. GNR vs. EDM

I know karate...and ka-razy!Eagles of Death Metal’s Jesse “The Devil” Hughes talks to the NME about the dustup with Axl Rose:

“Then when he called us The Pigeons Of Shit Metal, Tommy Stinson, their bass player took his bass off and goes: ‘Fuck you, that’s it’. And then he threw his bass down. But then Axl picked up his bass and fucking threw it at him dude. It was a fucking circus up there.

“By the end of the night that guy [Rose] had caused a giant uproar,” said Hughes. “It was like a total mutiny on the part of his band and everyone. I could hear screaming in the dressing room, ‘Those are our friends and you’ve insulted our friends’. Then at 4am in the morning our tour manager gets a phone call which essentially amounted to: ‘Axl’s thought about it, he thought you guys were a band getting shoved on his tour from the label. He’s really sorry and you’re more than welcome to finish the tour’.

“When my manager told me that, I just said, ‘You can tell that motherfucker to go and fuck himself because I will never go through that again’.”

This is great. There’s really only one way to solve this feud: bare-knuckles fisticuffs between Axl and the Devil. I would happily fork over the $50 pay-per-view to see Axl gets his ass whooped by a dude with a handlebar mustache.

  1. The only person who could ever be allowed to throw Tommy Stinsons’ bass at him was the late Bob Stinson, and then only when if was stinking drunk.

  2. from the man himself on gunsnroses.com:

    Regarding the Eagles Of Death Metal and their recent bogus claims, Guns N’ Roses bass guitarist Tommy Stinson had this to say, “As a matter of fact, Eagles of Death Metal were a suggestion of mine a while ago. Turns out they were the wrong band for our crowd. They were booed and did not play for as long as they were scheduled to.

    “As for all of the inaccuracies that have been said since, I would like to say that’s all they are — inaccuracies. In the past I have thrown my bass. I have never thrown it at Axl or anyone else in the band nor has anyone thrown my bass back at me … yet. Axl has been a dear friend to me for nine years. We have no problem communicating and wish that people would stay the fuck out of shit they don’t know anything about. There was no GN’R mutiny or any such thing after the Cleveland gig and as far as I’m concerned this tour has been the most fun yet. The band is playing great and getting along better than we ever have. With that said, either get on board or fuck off.”
