AXL SHALL PERFORM! & That's All Folks

The wedding celebration has come and gone, and while it was unforgettable, Axl didn't show. (Given that on the same night he couldn't perform at Wembley Stadium, we wouldn't have had Axl on top of his game anyhow.)

However, I HAVE obtained tickets to the recently announced GNR show in San Francisco at the Warfield on September 20. Axl, if I can repurpose one of your lines: "You Will Be Mine!"

I may post an update from the show, but otherwise THAT'S IT for the blog. Many thanks for your virtual signatures, compelling emails to Axl's management, and deeply felt urges of support.

Regularly scheduled zaniness continues on SuperMattalica::A Festival of Life.

At This Distance, Axl Must Have Seen The Sign!

Check out the PhotoOdyssey of Team Axl at the 5/17 Guns N' Roses show in NYC. Team member Chris was holding a big sign asking Axl to play the show - is there any doubt the Axe saw it?

It's true: all members of Team Axl get preferred seating at the wedding celebration!

Dear Howard,

Matt Stewart here (the guy trying to get Axl Rose to perform at my wedding celebration). I wanted to send my congrats for the awesome NYCshows (friends of mine attended) and wish Axl the best of luck on the European tour.

I couldn't help but notice that Axl DID play a private event recently -- an acoustic show at a birthday party for Rosario Dawson ( That was pretty awesome of Axl to do -- just think how much cooler it would be for him to perform at a fan's wedding who held tickets to TWO concerts in 2002 that were cancelled (Sacramento and San Jose). Redemption, increased coolness and record sales -- what's not to love?

Heck, at my wedding Axl doesn't even need to bring the other Gunners; we'll already have a reggae band and Axl can do a little Marley. We'll leave the keyboards open. July 29 -- hope he can make it. (Axl's scheduled to be out of the country, I hear, but schedules change,
especially when they're attached to Guns N Roses...)

Team Axl Hits the Streets of NYC

High school and college chums Chris and Marc will be outside the Hammerstein Ballroom tonight prepping the crowd to get at Axl about playing at my wedding. It is my understanding that posters will be brought into the arena as well.

Could two more rockin' dudes be alive?

To the public, I ask that you say hello to my mates, greet them with friendship! And let's get Axl to play that wedding! He still hasn't said no!

My Response to Axl's Lawyer/Publicity Guy

Dear Howard,

Thanks for your prompt and courteous response. I ask that Axl please reconsider his travel plans (besides, can you ever remember a Guns N Roses tour that went perfectly on schedule?) and wish him the best of luck with the tour. While I may not be able to make the NYC shows, I have plenty of operatives who will be there cheering him on.

Again, nothing would be more fantastic than Axl leading the way at our wedding party. A performance by the Axe would be among the best publicity moves in history and an unforgettable experience for everyone. I do hope Team Rose reconsiders.

Axl will not be available to attend or perform at your wedding. Congratulations of you upcoming wedding and best of luck.

THE BATTLE RAGES ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Letter #7

Dear Mr. Mercuriadis/Mr. Weitzman

I'm writing again to ask Axl Rose to perform at my wedding celebration.

I realize Axl is a busy guy in the next few months – I’ve read about fresh Guns N’ Roses tour dates in New York to Europe, and the accompanying rehearsing and planning will be a lot of work I’m sure. Frankly, I’m excited about it, and I hope to see the new album soon (as well as tour dates in San Francisco!). But on another level of excitement, far above tingling anticipation on a level more like full-fledged, unadulterated craving, I really really really really hope that Axl can swing by my wedding celebration on July 29 in Napa.

Again, this would be a PR coup for Axl. Playing my wedding celebration not only would be extremely cool, but it would be something the millions of Axl fans out there could relate to. Many of them, like me, grew up with Axl; many of them, like me, are now moving on to the point of women-marrying and family-beginning, and reading about Axl showing up to a fan’s wedding (or watching the related MTV special) might very well touch them in that sensitive, manager’s dream area where they’ll immediately want to go out and buy the new album, concert tickets, and plenty of concessions in support of such a cool customer.

I have good news to report on the music situation at my wedding celebration: we WILL have a reggae band! Joselito Manekin, my roommate from my semester in Spain way back in 2000, is now the keyboardist on a DC-area reggae band called John Stone ( Of course, they’re more than willing to share the stage with Axl, or clear off altogether if Axl brings the rest of GNR to the party. I’ve seen Axl get reggaelicious on “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” in those concert movies in Japan; maybe he could reggaefy some of the new material? Either way, it should be a blast.

Finally, I went ahead and downloaded the “Welcome to the Jungle” ringtone for my phone. Just imagine: I’m sitting at work when the phone rings “Welcome to the Jungle” and it’s Axl, offering to play my wedding celebration. Does life get any better?
