Sorry, but watching the Eddie Trunk interview with Axl really made me appreciate just how special this band was. Axl is kind of like the Frankenstein of rock. Hated, yet you cannot deny just how amazing his mere existence is. Maybe that's a little pompous...but I HAVE been drinking.
I still think Axl is a douche, but I've been listening to both of the Use Your Illusion albums a lot lately (even before I watched the interview.) Both are great albums.
