Damn! Gene Simmons has some strong opinions on Axl Rose!
According to him, Axl is the reason Guns N' Roses fell off the map. He said they could have been the greatest, but Axl screwed it all up.
The KISS bassist explains:
Guns N' Roses could have been the best band in the world, and the reason they're not is because of Axl Rose. I mean, the drugs, the heroin, the alcohol and all that. But ultimately, it falls on Axl's shoulders.
A good beating would have helped. I mean, when you misbehaved as a little kid and continued to do it, there was somebody there to give you a what for. Then when you become a grown-up, who's there to set you straight?
We have to admit. We don't agree with the violence, but there is something to say about the connection between Axl's rise of pride and the fall of the band's prime.
