Rock’s number one recluse, W. Axl Rose, did his first live TV interview in over two decades last night, making an appearance on ABC‘s Jimmy Kimmel Live. Kimmel lofted softballs at the Gunners vocalist, pointedly not asking about Rose’s issues with his former bandmates, or what’s next for GNR. They did, however, talk about politics. Via Spin:
Rose acknowledged that “I don’t really vote,” explaining that other voters in California usually tend to share his views. But he did say, “I would lean Democrat, I would lean Obama.” As Kimmel observed, “This would make a great ‘Rock the Vote’ commercial, right here.”
To be honest, we’re kind of impressed that Axl is plugged in enough that he knows there’s an election going on at all, let along who’s running.
