MTV.com has confirmed that GUNS N' ROSES frontman Axl Rose can be heard as a DJ in the highly anticipated game "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas", which became available Monday night. Rose adopts the persona of Tommy "The Nightmare" Smith, of the classic rock station KDST The Dust, who spins an array of tunes such as FOGHAT's "Slow Ride", HUMBLE PIE's "Get Down to It", GRAND FUNK RAILROAD's "Some Kind of Wonderful" and LYNYRD SKYNYRD's "Free Bird".
Rose's appearance in "San Andreas", set in the gang-riddled West Coast of the early 1990s, marks the first time in over a year since a studio recording of his voice was heard by the public, although the New York Mets' Mike Piazza leaking a new GN'R tune on a syndicated radio show wasn't an "official release." Prior to that, Rose came out of years of seclusion with a new incarnation of GUNS N' ROSES to perform at the 2002 VMAs. Read more.
