    Thanks for the fantastic interview! It’s especially great to hear what’s been going on with his new projects.
    It’s also really cool that you’ve helped get his music online. Looking forward to seeing what you guys do together in the future.

    hey!
    ive been at a gnr show last year, here in hungary. was great, huge, the only problem was that axl kept us waiting for 4 hours… thank you very much, man! i arrived home at 5 am, and went to pass my exams at 7… you can imagine…
    and i was soooo fucked up when i read that izzy joined guns the show before and the show after… and of course he did not come to us… i am still fuckin happy about it!

  • zeeniiii

    Izzy was probably the most underrated GNR!!!His voice is soooo sweet nd relaxing.I really love him a lot. He is a legend!!!A very sweet human being nd a great musician.
    Its great to see that he is tourin wit AXL nd his band(well i wudnt call it GNR coz it isnt).
    Izzy has always been my fav gunner followed by steven, slash nd duff nd well axl being the last.
    Izzy was the coolest nd the most good lookin gunner too.

  • zeeniiii

    Well if only Izzy cud tour Mumbai, but i guess many pple here wont recognise him:(, but i wud be great.I really wanna see him. He is sooo cute!!Love ya stradlin!!!
    He is seriously a sexy SOB!1:)
    I wud give anythin to hav the original line-up bk together.

  • Samantha

    I know a lot of Izzy’s earlier works, and I JUST heard ‘Bomb’ for the first time on here. I LOVE it!
    Thank you so much for posting this!I can’t wait for ‘Miami’ to come out…keep up the good work!

  • nick

    Izzy’s album 117 is one of my all time favourites albums, the mixing isn’t great but with the right graphic equaliser setting, i prefer the classical one on win media player, it really shines through.
    “gotta say” is one of my all time favourite songs period, but the whole album is a good friend of mine….its like Izzy very much…pretty cool.

    wow nice!

    Te amo, izzy…!!!!
    And Bomb is awsome…thanks to whoever posted the interview, it was great and really somethin nice to hear (as your voice will always , stradlin).Lovely Job on those solo albums.

  • Michelle

    there are so few izzy interviews, or anything on him or about him on the internet, that im surprised i actually found this. great interview, and a great song. If he isnt already touring his solo stuff, he should because his music is fucken good. And after that, we need a gnr reunion. its the season for reunions: the police,iggy and the stooges, rage against the machine,the eagles, van halen…As much as i like velvet revolver, scott murders the gnr songs when he covers them. just my opinion. axl needs to get his shit together, and this band needs to reunite. its inevitable. i give it a year.

    Wohoo! Just what i wanted to hear! Izzy rocks! \,,/

    Thank you sooo much for this interview!Izzy is so intelligent and sweet and an amazing story-teller..omg,im so jealous of that.Ive been a fan of his since 1987 when i was 15 and G-n-R exploded.Izzy is just awesome.Im so grateful he gave this interview cause he obviously doesnt do but one a year.
