Great Quotations: Axl Rose

Videos by American Songwriter

“Slash and McKagan did more damage to my ability as a writer. To those three, it was all crap. It beat me down so much. At the time of the [‘Use Your Illusion’] tours, Slash and Duff said, ‘You’re an idiot, you’re a loser.’ I didn’t write for years. I felt I was hindered for a very long time. I was also trying to figure out what I wanted to say, when it’s right to be venting and when you’re digging a bigger hole. Lyrics on Chinese Democracy took a long time.”
