- Band manager Alan Niven says Guns N’ Roses was Izzy Stradlin’s band.
- In a new interview, Niven talked about his time working with the band and said it was Stradlin who was most responsible for the band’s commercial success.
- He explained, “As far as I was concerned, it was his band – he had the cool disposition and the unimpeachable street vernacular. Add to that the syncopation of his right rhythm hand, and you have a personification of rock ‘n’ roll right there. He was always the one who was always available for conference, for discussion. Axl was insular. Slash and Duff were mostly f**ked up.”
