“Axl was in the front seat with me and I look back to see they’ve taken Ernie and Bert, tied guitar strings around their necks and have them smoking cigarettes while being dangled out the window. I was like, ‘You’ve got to be kidding me.’ I was so pissed. I mean now it’s funny but it wast funny then.”
