Axl Rose, lead singer of GUNS N’ ROSES and current guest vocalist on the AC/DC tour, took part in a rare interview on Tuesday (June 7) at the China Exchange in London, United Kingdom. The chat was part of the Prudential Series of talks which gives the audience an exciting opportunity to interact with exceptional people from a variety of fields of interest from music and entertainment to business and academia.
During the question-and-answer session — audio of which can be heard below — Rose was asked if there are any plans for him to release new music in the not-too-distant future. He said: “We are working on new stuff. I’ve got a lot of stuff together, and I played some stuff for [GUNS N’ ROSES bandmates] Slash and Duff [McKagan] and they liked it. And Angus [Young, AC/DC guitarist] and I are talking about working together.”
He continued: “Slash and I hadn’t talked in 19 years, and when we did talk, I was, like, ‘You wrote a lot of stuff [in your book] that didn’t even happen. It’s not real.'”
Asked about his relationship with Angus Young, Axl said: “It’s great. I can’t really explain it. I feel something… I feel protective, [like] I do not want to let this guy down, more than almost anybody I’ve ever met. And I don’t know why. And he’s very responsive to me. And they said they hadn’t seen him this happy, they hadn’t seen him moving around [as much before]. So that’s kind of a neat thing between musicians.”
