WATCH NICOLAS CAGE HAVE A FANBOY MOMENT OVER AXL ROSE
We know we sometimes go overboard with our love of the great and timeless Hollywood icon known as Nicolas Cage, but there was absolutely no way we could pass up the opportunity to write about Cage freaking out about something music-related the way we do when our favorite bands do cool things.
Nicolas Cage made a surprise guest appearance earlier this week at Revolver’s annual Golden Gods heavy metal awards. The show was just beginning to wind down when the time came to present the lifetime achievement award to Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose, which was introduced by comedian Andrew Dice Clay. After a short video montage of Rose in his prime was played, many expected the man himself to come on stage, but instead Nic Cage walked out to add his two cents to the night’s proceedings. He opened up to the audience and viewers at home about his deep admiration for Rose’s work and unique style, then called him a maverick while welcoming Axl to the podium. The look on Cage’s face that follows is akin to how many of us must look when rubbing shoulders with someone we idolize. You can view the clip below (Cage comes on at 3:05).
There have been rumors that Guns N’ Roses are working on new music, but after the debacle that was Chinese Democracy we are going to wait a little longer before getting excited about something that may never actually happen. Cage, on the other hand, has plenty of work lined up for release in the months ahead. His latest feature, Tokarev, was just released overseas and should land stateside before fall. He is also set to lead the reboot of Left Behind, which is expected to roll into theaters sometime this summer.
Rock on, Nic. We love you.
