GUNS N' ROSES Frontman To Be Interviewed On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

GUNS N' ROSES frontman Axl Rose has scheduled his first sit-down, live television broadcast interview in more than 20 years with Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday, October 24. The appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" is another in a series of firsts for the celebrated GUNS N' ROSES frontman, who will spend this fall at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino for a 12-night run of shows. The historic "Appetite For Democracy" residency will run October 31 through November 24.

Fans who would like to participate in Rose's appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" can visit www.jimmykimmellive.com for ticket information.

"Jimmy Kimmel Live!" airs weeknights at 12 a.m. PT/11 p.m. CT on ABC.

Rose's first broadcast interview in years aired on November 11, 2011 via VH1 Classic's "That Metal Show", which devoted its full hour to the interview and the preparations for it. The talk took place at 5:30 a.m. following GUNS' performance on October 29, 2011 in Miami.

Axl Rose skipped GUNS N' ROSES' induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in April and declined to be inducted along with the rest of the group. The singer also reaffirmed that there is no chance of the original lineup reuniting, and seemed to speak directly to fans still hoping for a reunion when he added, "Time to move on. People get divorced. Life doesn't owe you your own personal happy ending especially at another's, or in this case several others', expense."

In at least a partial nod to his former bandmates, however, Rose wrote, "For the record, I would not begrudge anyone from GUNS their accomplishments or recognition for such. Neither I or anyone in my camp has made any requests or demands of the Hall Of Fame. It's their show, not mine."

Original GN'R members Slash, Steven Adler and Duff McKagan, along with later members Matt Sorum and Gilby Clarke, performed three songs at the induction ceremony in Cleveland. They were joined on vocals by Myles Kennedy, who sings in Slash's solo band.

In addition sole original member Axl Rose, the current lineup of GUNS N' ROSES includes guitarists Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal, Richard Fortus and DJ Ashba, bassist Tommy Stinson, keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Chris Pitman and drummer Frank Ferrer.
