“I was drawn to Axl like everyone else because he is such an amazing singer and performer and has such powerful all-around charisma.
I also admired the fact that he always had a point of view that he felt strongly about and was always so sincere about it.
He’s a brilliant lyricist and such a really tortured artist that he won me over because my mentality has always been to root for the underdog - and that was such a major part of his brilliance.”
