AXL IS SMACK TALKIN' THE CHILI PEPS
Earlier this week, FLEA admitted that the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS were doing AIR-GUITAR during the Super Bowl halftime show, because the NFL wouldn't let them perform live.
Now, AXL ROSE is mocking them for it. He sarcastically Tweeted,
"Hey, they got that karaoke thing going for 'em! Awesome! They're right up there with the sign language guy, whose deep n' heartfelt dedication, absolute total commitment, conviction . . . "Absence of sanity, and ultimate public achievement should not be forgotten! God Bless [Nelson] Mandela for his consideration n' generosity, for foreseeing this noble event and kicking the bucket (too soon?) allowing us this, not unlike the Super Bowl, historic, heroic n' amazing event! Amen!!" (???) Axl also wrote a piece for Billboard.com on the situation . . . BEFORE Flea confirmed that they weren't playing live. He joked, quote, "Maybe they all had microchips installed in their asses, and not only pick up the frequencies of their instruments but get Direct TV and the internet too! Like Google Glass . . . Google Ass!"
WTF is Axl talking about? Would he have done it different?
Should the Chili Peps have told everyone B4 the superbowl? Would that have made it better or worse?
UPDATE THURSDAY 2/7:
from AXL ROSE
'I enjoyed the show and I've no idea what the real story is nor would I want to suggest or imply anyone wasn't actually performing or that what they were playing wasn't what we actually heard. That said I feel it's important to always look on the positive side of things and to give the benefit of doubt. 'So consider that maybe sometime before their actual performance that rather than use a guitar cord or standard wireless, that in the name of science and for all mankind Flea courageously had a newly invented breakthrough in microchip technology installed in his a** that picked up the frequencies of his ba** and transmitted them to his amplifier. 'Maybe they all had microchips installed in their a**es and not only pick up the frequencies of their instruments but get Direct TV and the internet too! Like Google Glass... Google A**! They could be "Scientific Pioneers!" Like Buzz Aldrin and sh*t! True (pardon the pun)A**-tro-nots! Or like Superbowl crash test dummies for bands kinda like those cars that drive themselves! 'And besides... If the band wasn't really playing or wireless or whatever and Anthony was really singing they may have set a new world record for the largest karaoke audience ever! Awesome "
