"(Axl)'s a great rock singer. How can I get anybody that's gonna top that?"
"Axl was like a serious lunatic when I met him. He was just really bent on fighting and destroying things. Somebody'd look at him wrong and he'd just like start a fight."
"Axl wants to do stuff his way, at his pace, in his time."
"(Axl)'s completely crazy... Without the other four of us around, I wouldn't even want to imagine what the fuck would go on in his head. Or his life."
"(Axl) can still be a tyrant, but then he can turn around and be the nicest guy in the world."
"Slash was born in Stock... Uh, Stoke-on-Trent, when he was just a little kid, you know what I'm sayin'."
"(Duff) plays sort of like a rhythm bass sort of thing, y'know."
"Y'now Motley Crue? Sick fuckin' guys, man! Real sick fucks, those guys!"
"We got a call sayin' Alice Cooper had like two weeks of support dates in the Midwest. We said, 'Alice Cooper... Fuckin' A!' Hey, I grew up listening to y'know "Sick Things", "I Love the Dead". It was a lot better than fuckin' reality. So we did 'em. Alice was cool. He's still... Y'know... "Alice"."
"We take out our aggressions while we're playing. It's like therapy."
"What's more boring than a drum solo?"
"In Guns N' Roses, I would come up with an idea for a song and the first thing that would always happen was Slash getting hold of it and going chunka-chunka-chunka! I'd be going, 'OK, it's already changed a little bit.' Then Axl would come in and go, 'We've gotta dd more lyrics, we've gotta have more vocals, more back-ups, let's layer this'. So by the time it was finished it was like, 'holy shit! What a monster!'"
"Music gave me something to do in my life."
"I've read that Alice Cooper created this thing that was Alice Cooper, so onstage he's Alice Cooper, but if he's going to buy a car, he's Vincent Furnier - the other guy! Last year, I was thinking, "Man, that's pretty clever, if you could sub-divide into two separate entities…" But… it's me, you know?!"
"I have a phobia about being barefoot!"
