THE AXL RANT FROM CHICAGO CONCERT!!! BACK!!!
W.AXL ROSE SPEAKS OUT!!
ATTENTION: THIS PAGE DOES CONTAIN SOME SWEARING! I ONLY ASK YOU TO
PLEASE NOTE THIS AHEAD OF TIME FOR ANYONE WHO IS OFFENDED. IT IS TYPED
EXACTLY THE WAY AXL SAID IT WHEN HE WAS UNDER GREAT
The following words came from W.Axl Rose, himself, at the concert in
Chicago, ILL on
4/9/92. This is not another article speculating what Axl said, because I
watched it on videotape with my own eyes. This page is dedicated to those that have suffered at the hands of others!
This has to do with sexual abuse, drugs, and the whole 'bullshit "attitude
people have about being" cool "!
Out of the mouth of ''Axl'' as follows --
is speaking to the audience)
Any of you, uh, read the latest Rolling Stone? I was on the phone a long
time last night and a friend of mine was telling me how ---- (Axl stops talking and directs
this next comment to the audience) ---------
SHUT THE FUCK UP! Ohhh, Axl, cool, metal dude, rock-n-roll, party,
I AIN'T HERE FOR THAT !!
Anyway, a friend was telling me that my
has taken offense to what I said in the magazine. It's a shame. (they
His mother can't even go out of the house now. It was amazing my mother
could go out of the house before knowing the shit she fuckin knew!!
And, why is he talking about this? (Axl asks the audience) Cause it might not have
happened to you, but it may have happened to the 2 or 3 people standing
going to come back and
haunt them when they hit about the age of 25! And, then you gotta find your
way, and climb your way out of what you "thought" was your life!
But, it looks more like a fuckin car wreck in your head that no one
you about because the 'family" doesn't want to have to be embarrassed about
these things coming out. We just shouldn't have to deal with this
then were probably not going to deal with the bullshit at all! And I bet
that THEY like it that way!
I'm not a qualified therapist. I don't
know a lot of shit about this, but I do know that this is the 90's! And I
know that if were going to make it another 50 years on this planet we gotta
FUCKIN CHANGE OUR SHIT NOW!!!
And, there'ss a lot of motherfuckers that don't want that shit to be
changed! Cause that's going to dig up their crap! The parents who done
fucked up their kids through their whole fuckin lives, and they are about
or 50, and think it's cool!
FUCK THAT SHIT! And, I'm the last
person who they thought would be climbing up their ass to tell them about
But see for me.....it ain't about doing fuckin cocaine. It ain't about how
much vodka I drink, or how much I can drink someone under the table! It
ain't about what a "macho man/rock-n-roller" I can be!
That shit don't
no more! That's great for little kids, fuckin bullshit!
But, it don't work no more in the real world, not for my ass! I can't
up here and go "Yeah,
I'm bad. I'm rock-n-roll, we're doing this rock & roll thing." If my
is falling apart......
I can't, FAKE it NO MORE!
Just because my family or my record company
me I should(fake it) so everybody can be happy or make
money....YEAH!!! SUCK MY DICK!!
Anyway, there are those in my family that
they plan that they are going to get revenge, because it was a terrible
I did! (exposing their life by interview to the public)
YEAH! TRY IT!!!!
And, if a fuckin, scrawny little jr. high. 90 pound weakling can get up
and get this shit on. SO CAN YOU, who have the same fuckin problems in
life!! THEY DON'T. HAVE TO GET AWAY WITH IT! I tried being nice. I
tried being cool about it. I tried being friends offering love and
forgiveness and all that shit! And, they say you know how much we love
you. But let's keep you down like we always have.
well, guess what?
I've 'changed" my point of view! For me now, it's kinda like-live and let
(GnR perform Live and let Die)
(After GnR does Civil War, Axl continues.)
You know it never ceases to amaze me ........when you, are up here and
look out over the crowd, and you can always find usually 18-25 year
.....real pot smoking, judgemental, rock-n-rollin, fuckheads! (next
to the crowd) - You say I don't know I'm cool and shit. And I don't know
who those GNR think they are cool and shit, but I'm cool.
WELL, IT AIN'T
ABOUT ME BEING COOL! IT AIN'T ABOUT YOU BEING COOL! But, what were doing
here tonight is pretty fuckin, cool.
So, if you come out here to be a
critical, judgemental, "FUCK,"
ya know, I guess that's your fuckin problem. If you want to stand there
like James Dean with a fuckin corn cob up your ass, that's cool.
Seems to me
you are wasting your own Goddamned time though.
And that's another fuckin
problem-we all think we have so much fuckin time you know? We ain't got no
Goddamned time to waste at all!!
You want to sit on your ass and think your COOL? You, WILL end up
in a factory til your fuckin 80 years old, then they will rip you off
your fuckin pension!
Meanwhile, I'll get off my fuckin soapbox. I was singing that song (Civil
War), and people were going-- "Yeah, OK." But, maybe you are just
But this is a WAKE-UP call Chicago! Do you know where the fuck
are? Wake up!! It, s time to die!!!!
