Fernando, one of the Beta's childrens talk
about Axl and the album released!! He says it'll be released probably
in the middle of octuber and they'll be on tour again after that !
Origin - O Globo Entertainment (transl.)
>>Interviewer – Hello Fernando, what brings you to Rio?
Fernando – I am here on vacation. I have
many friends in Brazil, but I have to go home on the Saturday
>>I – Do you miss Brazil?
Fernando – I miss my friends, but I like
California more. I have lived there for ten years now, and have made
many new friends who I like very much
>>I – How is Axl?
Fernando – Axl is very happy and relaxed.
He is still working on the new Guns n’Roses album at the moment.
He never stops (Fernando laughs)
>>I – When will we all get to see the new Guns n’roses
Fernando – Axl says he wants to release
the album in the middle of October and I think he will because the
album is almost finished now and Axl is happy with it. It is a very
beautiful album too. I think you will like it
>>I – And is Axl planning on touring this Winter?
Fernando – Yes. He wants to start touring
when the album is released. He says he might tour America again first,
but I tell him to do South America first as they are his biggest fans
and his friends
>>I – Do you think that people will go to see Guns n’roses
after the cancellation of their tour last year?
Fernando – Yes, yes. It was not Axl’s
fault. He will tell you later. He was late to the concert and it got
cancelled by the promotion people who were scared that there would
be another riot. It was silly because there was a riot anyway
>>I – Will you be travelling with Axl on his tour?
Fernando – Yes. I like to travel and
Axl likes my company. We are like brothers, and sometimes we fight
like brothers *Fernando laughs again*
>>I – Ok, thanks for speaking to us Fernando and enjoy
the rest of your vacation
Fernando – Thank you
