David Arquette set the record straight on his Beverly Hills, 90210 cameo. “I was the sellout there. Sorry, Axl. Please, peace be with you — and also with you,” he said with a laugh.

Arquette had been strolling down memory lane with EW’s Couch Surfing host Lola Ogunnaike, as they looked back on some of his past performances. The Scream actor appeared in a 1992 episode of 90210 as Dennis “Diesel” Stone, the lead singer of a band called Waste Management.

“I have a line within it saying, ‘Axl Rose is a sellout,’” he recalled. “Well, I’m playing Diesel Stone.”

Arquette also remembered getting a keytar to play with the band, since all the other instruments had been claimed. “I show up and the guy’s like, ‘No, man. We’re a real rock band. They’re playing our song in the show, that’s why we’re up here. And we have a drummer,'” he said.

Hence, Arquette tried to rock out hardcore on a keytar.
