Rocker Sebastian Bach has ruled out plans for former GUNS N' ROSES frontman Axl Rose to star in a new reality TV show, insisting his pal would rather pay millions to be left alone.
Former Skid Row frontman Bach had just taped reality show Supergroup for America's VH1 when he tried to persuade Rose to follow his lead and sign up for his own show.
But the reluctant rock recluse was far from amused at the idea.
Bach tells Rolling Stone magazine, "I go, 'Dude, I just shot this reality show for VH1 and they paid me this amount of money, man. It was f**king easy. It was only like two weeks. It was hilarious.'
"I said, 'Axl, if they paid me this amount of money, they'd pay you like a million bucks for 10 days of some s**t.'
"He's looking at me with this look on his face and he's all quiet and he goes, 'Sebastian, you don't understand... I will pay VH1 $2 million to leave me the f**k alone!'"
So, now, Bach admits he chuckles to himself everytime the Rose reality rumours come around: "I would bet my life you won't be seeing the Axl Rose reality TV show."
