Part II (Part III is on page 20, part IV is on page 24)

What are your current relations to the other Gunners?

"Uhh... I've only seen Matt recently [because Matt Sorum is apparently the only Gunner who goes out] and Steven when he played with the Starfuckers one night at the Cat Club where I play on Thursdays.? Other than that, I haven't talked to anyone else... well, I talked to Izzy a couple years ago- he was at a recording studio playing some of his new stuff."

Building on this, from talking to him at lunch & whatnot... Dizzy had a LOT to say about the former Gunners.? Keep in mind these are paraphrases...

On Izzy:? 'You have to understand that Izzy is one of those people that does whatever he wants.? You know... when I joined the band, he sometimes... just didn't show up.? Examples include during the recording of the music video for "Don't Cry" and the music video for "You Could Be Mine" at the end in the scene where the band exits the studio and sees Arnold.? [we watch the 'You Could be Mine' music video and Dizzy comments... "hey... where's Izzy? o wait... yea, he wasn't there"] Obviously part of the reason that Izzy left might have been the fact that he and Axl didn't get along towards the end... but thats just part of it.? I mean... about the Ju Ju Hounds... I have a friend who was the guitarist for that band back in the early 90s and he was always complaining about how Izzy would just not show up for shows.? [I comment that Izzy is turning into Axl... which puts a frown on Dizzy's face]? And... just as a musician... Izzy used to be a great songwriter- his contribution to Guns N' Roses first album are phenomenal.? But, its almost like the guy has lost the fire... I mean I saw the guy a couple years back in the studio... and he was showing me a song he had just written called "Toothpuller" - it was literally about him visiting the dentist and getting a tooth pulled out.? [Dizzy then sings some of the lyrics] I mean... this is a guy who wrote some badass songs and now he's writing about getting his tooth pulled... I mean come on... can you imagine Axl singing that live?' [I next ask him about rumors that Izzy had been paying visits to Axl's Malibu mansion over the last few years and had been rejected at the door several times] Yea... he's always doing that- he'd done it a few times actually. [I ask him if its because Izzy wants back in G'n'R] No... I mean I'm not sure... the guy sort of just does his own thing... he did join us back during the Use Your Illusion tour briefly... Gilby had hurt himself and so he stepped in for a couple of dates... I mean, the guy's really weird is the best way to describe it... in '91, we were playing some shows in England... like one day we were having the times of our lives playing a sold-out Wembley and the next day... I talk to Izzy and he's like: "I'm leaving the band" and I'm like "what!?" and he's like: "Dizzy... I'm leaving the band." I personally don't understand him to any extent.

On Steven: 'Wow... what to say about this guy... I just recently played with Steven with the Starfuckers... actually it was both him and C.C. Deville of Poison.? It was like this really hyped up concert because here's two big names playing with us... and let me tell you... at the concert... you could hear a pin drop.? C.C. DeVille was terrible.. the guy can't play for the life of him... and Steven... he can't even hold a beat anymore let alone play drums.? We'd look bad and the guy was literally smoking crack while on stage during the songs.? It was possibly the worst concert of my life... I mean... there's only so many times that a guy can die from an overdose and come back alive...

On Jani Lane of Warrant: 'Let me tell you about Jani Lane... I just recently performed with this guy.. he was at the Raven's Heart benefit show [I think this is the concert he mentioned] And he literally had to be carried on stage because he was so drugged up... he couldn't sing.. like at all... it was like a comic act.. because he was just on stage making a fool of himself.. everyone at the show was laughing and you know... I felt bad for him [when asked about the VH1 show that shows that he's sober] TV's TV man.. the guy's no different now.. that was just for a bit of publicity.? I mean he recently calls me on my cell completely fucked up and is like: "MEET ME AT _____ tomorrow!" and I'm like: "wait.. who is this?" and he's like: "what?" and I'm like: "who is this?" and he's like: "ITS JANI" and hangs up... and he actually expects me to talk to his management about playing with him.

On Matt Nelson of Nelson: 'Saw him recently at a concert. He came up to me and was like "hi... I'm Matt Nelson. Was wondering if you knew any keyboardists who might be up for playing with me and my band at ____ [I forget the show name]. And obviously the guy's pointing at asking me if I wanted to play so I talk to him for a while and its literally minutes before I realize that this guys Matt Nelson of the band Nelson 'cause I mean he has like short hair now... and then he starts talking about Axl... he says: "Dizzy... you know- me and Axl are very alike" and Im like... "Really? how...?" and he's like: "I dated Erin Everly right when he was going through their divorce" and I'm like "holy shit... 'cause I didn't even know that. and so of course I couldn't do that to Axl... to play with this guy"'

Who was better for Axl? Erin Everly or Stephanie Seymour?

"You know... this is a degree of privacy and that's his own personal business."

I hear that Axl's still having trouble getting over his breakup with Stephanie Seymour because he perceived her to be perfect for him... is that true?

"I haven't heard him talk about her in quite a while... but it could be true... it's his personal relationship"






about a half done!

No they have better things to do, you know like tour, speak to their fans and actually release albums. But since your waiting for Axl's GnR tribute bands album you wouldn't know what that is like.


We don't know jackshit about what happens behind closed doors, I bet just a few weeks ago if someone suggested that Axl was on speaking terms (and probably more) with Izzy that you would of thought it was a crazy idea.

Wow!!

Fireworks!

Slash and Duff sniffing around about a reunion.....Adler and CC are washed up.....allusions to something that will happen that legitimizes the 2006 is the year talk.

Pure Dynamite.

Is it really true?

Not Guns related-but isn't it funny in sad way to see what's happened to some of those 80s LA hairbands? Adler smoking crack ON STAGE?? Jani Lane having to be propped up? I swear, given who Dizzy knows, he could write one wild tell-all book about the fall of the Sunset Strip bands.

Also, I'm not doubting our interviwer or Dizzy, Roll Eyes but it is very hard for me to believe the old guys are really clamoring for a reunion given the success of VR-what's the incentive? Yes, money, but they're all well enough off and VR has been profitable. The only thing I can figure is that there are problems with Weiland in some capacity, but if there are, they've been surpisingly tight-lipped about it, gotta call is false.

Well Slash and Duff sniffing at a rose doesn't mean a shit when Axl has better things to do. And none of Dizzy's comments says otherwise.

thanks so much for typing up this interview.. lots of interesting stuff here! i wouldn't expect there to be too many revelations about the new album from other members because i believe Axl is going to give some kind of big interview/press release whenever he is finally ready to roll and he doesnt want all the info coming out before then.

Is it me or does the second part of the interview have parts that seem almost unbelievable. No one in GNR has been this forthcoming to anyone so far and the reunion thing seems far fetched considering VR's success. ?And Steven smoking crack onstage? Wouldnt we have heard about that one sooner?

Im not saying this interview is a fabrication. Just playing devils advocate here.

sure VR has had some sucsess, but noone in the world can say that vr has even reached gn'r to the ankle. jeez, didn't gn'rs GH sell more than contraband?

for me VR was really great cuz i got to hear slash play again, and it was really cool to see duff as i think he has become a real cool guy compared to his sloppy slurbing married to a pornstar wearing bowties on covers etc. now he's actually really fit and grounded and his bass playing just gets better and better imo it's all about the music for duff now which is great. fuck wiland, kushner and sorum, they're just fillers...

ofcourse slash n' duff and steven and matt want a gn'r reunion, they would be stupid not to and i know that slash n' the rest are as interested as us, if not more, to hear Chinese Democracy and you know what, they think thats the coolest album title of all time too.

How legit is this anyway?  Huh

Yeah Im thinking the same thing. I cant buy this "interview" for one reason and one reason only. The fact that Dizzy supposibely says "this is confidential stuff" but then goes on to talk about the confidential stuff is completely out there. Diz wouldn't do something like that...

Keeping tight lipped for several years, then opening up to some guy you never met with confidential info doesnt seem likely to happen.
