Axl Rose Pays Tribute To Lisa Marie Presley
Axl Rose was one of the famous artists who paid tribute to the late Lisa Marie Presley.
The 60-year-old Guns N’ Roses lead vocalist made a tribute statement for the late Lisa Presley last January 16. Known as the only child of late rock icon Elvis Presley and actress Priscilla Presley, Lisa died last January 12 at the age of 54. Reports said that she passed away after being hospitalized for cardiac arrest.
In a statement made by Rose, he said that he will miss his friend and that “Her passing, just as her son’s, or as a kid, her father’s, doesn’t seem real. Lisa loved her family, all her children. My heart goes out to them.” Rose continued:
“Her son’s passing was shocking, tragic and devastating. It was something that, at a point, you obviously didn’t want to bring up but awkwardly would in an effort to let her know you cared and were thinking about her, about them, and to be of any comfort one could, which she appreciated.”
Rose also stated that he “wanted her to be happy, to feel good about things, at least as much as one could under the circumstances. And really, with the closeness of their relationship, one could hope — but truthfully, it didn’t seem, at least without some real time passing, a reasonable reality.” He added:
“What comes after life, who knows, but I’d like to think they’re together, her and Ben with her father and Ben’s grandfather in some way, and Lisa, and the most important men in her life are happy together.”
The rocker also shared the friendship that the two of them had and recalled that they “spoke a lot about the Elvis movie which she was very proud of, and especially that it touched on her father’s love since early childhood of black gospel, and later, the blues/ She was very nervous at first of how the public would react to the film because it was so important to her to do right by her father.”
