Yeah, we don't quite get it, either
News Flash: Axl Rose is still among us! Normally we wouldn't care — we're more than happy to remember Guns 'n' Roses as they once were, and not as a lone gasbag occasionally exchanging what's left of his dignity for occasional column inches — but this one's a head-scratcher.
See, the concerts at the Super Bowl halftime show — SPOILER ALERT — aren't always done 100 percent live. They might look like it, but, well, there's quite often some help. So that curtain was pulled back when the Red Hot Chili Peppers didn't bother plugging in their guitars on Sunday. RCHP bassist Flea explained how things really work. But don't worry, Axl's on the case.
In an op-ed in for Billboard, he wrote:
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! They could be "Scientific Pioneers!" Like Buzz Aldrin and shit! True (pardon the pun)ASS-tro-nots! Or like Superbowl crash test dummies for bands kinda like those cars that drive themselves!
OK, then. We can't make much out of it, either. Guess Axl's not a Glasshole.
