|A little GN'R mention at MTV.com:
Nearly 15 years ago, Los Angeles band Pigmy Love Circus enjoyed modest success when their anti-rock-star single "King of L.A." went to #1 at a local alternative station, thanks largely to lyrics like "I'm the king of L.A., I killed Axl Rose today."
One night during the band's brief radio reign, Pigmy Love Circus frontman Michael Savage was hanging at a bar when a guy came up to him and said, "You know, Slash is here." At the time, Guns N' Roses were the biggest thing in rock, but Savage, who stands well over six feet tall, was hardly intimidated.
"I said, 'You know what? Guns N' Rose are at the top of the heap, and I'm at the bottom, and I'm sure they could really care less,' " the singer recalled. " 'If I met Axl Rose I'd probably buy the guy a beer if I had the money.' And the dude shook my hand and said, 'Well, I'm Slash. Your band rocks.' "
