Donald Trump about Guns N' Roses' Axl Rose: "He is the Donald Trump of Rock and Roll"


Former Guns N' Roses manager Doug Goldstein talked about Donald Trump's admiration for Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose last week on the Talking Metal podcast.


He said: "We’re playing 5 shows at Madison Square Garden in 1992. I hear, ‘Is Doug Goldstein around?’ I look, and it’s Donald Trump. I said, ‘Yeah, this is Doug Goldstein.’ He said, ‘Can you make a pass for me?’ I said, ‘Yeah sure.’ So, being quizzical, I said, ‘Why are you here?’ He said, ‘I want to meet the Donald Trump of rock and roll.’ I said, ‘I give up.’ He said, ‘You know Doug, when you’re an underdog, everybody puts you to the top. Press, your fans, and once you get to the top, they jerk your ass back to the ground. That’s what Axl Rose is.’ So I introduced Axl to him after the show."
