Rockline interview (audio only) w/news article
Izzy, Duff, and Slash
July 11, 1988 (interview)
July 24, 1988 (L.A. Times news article)
“Izzy, Duff and Slash from GNR came on the show absolutely smashed and a ridiculous feud broke out between the band, the label, KLOS and anyone else within earshot, including the L.A. Times”
- Bob Coburn (Rockline show DJ)
Kim (a caller): Hi!
Izzy: (yelling in high-pitched voice) Hi! Hi! Kim: You guys are like God’s gift to rock ‘n’ roll. Izzy: God’s gift? Kim: I just wanted you to know that. Slash: God doesn’t make those things. Izzy: That’s heavy. I don’t think he believes in this thing. That’s Stryper. Kim: I’m sorry, I missed you guys and everything. You guys didn’t come with Iron Maiden, I’m glad to hear you guys are coming to Ames Izzy: Coming where? Kim: Ames. But I wanted to know how you guys got involved in the Clint Eastwood movie. Izzy: Clint. Slash: Um, we were asked, somehow, I don't know. Duff: Supposedly....
Izzy: It was God’s gift! Duff: ...Supposedly Clint heard the record - I kind of doubt it, personally - but... Izzy: No, he said, “Great album” Slash: “Great album”.
Duff: So, yeah, they flew us to San Francisco a couple times, we... acted to the movie... We, like, stood there and they put a camera on us... Izzy: Can we get a barf bag in here, to go, please? Duff: So yeah, it just came about for some reason we actually really don't know about, but we're in it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Actually, when I first saw Axl the way he looks like now, I couldn't believe my eyes. I was surprised that this is a one person and I thought: "Why does he look so old and where's that beatiful guy he used to be?" I saw a lot of memes about his obese like "Welcome to the bakery we've got pies and cake" and so on. I had this point of view for a long period of time. And now I understand that it was stupid of me. At that time, of course, I didn't know about his disease and that the medications that he took, led him to obesity. I didn't know that in '90s he was singing even when he had vocal chords nodules. It was so painful but he didn't want to upset GnR fans. So now I like him the way he is.
