Guns n’ Roses/AC/DC frontman Axl Rose recently took part in an interview on Tuesday (June 7) as part of the Prudential Series at the China Exchange in London, United Kingdom. The interview can be heard below.
When Axl was asked if there are any plans for him to release new music in the days ahead, he replied: “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.”
Axl was also asked about plans for an autobiography, to which he replied: “I think so — quite possibly, yes. But it’s tough, because I have to figure out how to word things in a way that doesn’t just look like I’m being negative to everyone else or calling them a liar.”
He continued: “Slash and I hadn’t talked in 19 years, and [when we finally reconnected] it was a good talk. And I was, like, ‘You wrote a lot of stuff [in your book] that didn’t even happen. It’s not real.'”
Axl also spoke about his relationship with Angus Young, saying: “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.”
The rescheduled dates of AC/DC’s North American tour will kick off at Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, North Carolina on August 27.
