Fred Roggin: Do you know who this is? The lead singer of Guns N‘ Roses, Axl Rose. Wow. What did you think? [Axl sorta laughing at Fred’s dramatic introduction ;] Axl: I thought it was amazing, it’s a lot of fun. This was my first basketball game ever, in person. FR: This is your first game ever in person? Axl: Yeah – to go see it live, yes. FR: Coming in, were you rooting for the Lakers or the Sixers? Axl: The Lakers are my favorite team, but I’m a huge Allen Iverson fan, so I’m rooting for the underdog, ‚cos the Lakers are like, a given. So it’s like – I win either way with this one. FR: Now Axl, you sat out there, you experienced the fans…. Axl: But I want the season to go longer – they should extend the series – make it like a 10 game series. [I think he really wants the Sixers to win ;] FR: Now I gotta tell you something very seriously – I know it’s your first basketball game ever, and I know it’s all very exciting, but when all is said and done the season will have been long enough – it’s a very long season. Now let me ask you, what did you think of these fans? People say it’s a tough crowd, it’s a rough crowd – what did you think? Axl: I thought it was alright, I thought it was pretty mellow… I thought it was nice. FR: Well we think you’re very nice for coming over. Axl: I’m rooting for both teams – when it’s exciting, it’s exciting, you know. I mean you can’t take anything away from Shaq or Kobe, you just can’t. FR: Axl, thank you for stopping by, I really appreciate your time, glad you enjoyed your first game. Axl: Thank you very much.
