W. Axl Rose

W. Axl Rose is an American hard rock singer and songwriter. He is best known as the lead singer of Guns N' Roses, and is the only original member still part of the band's line-up. Although he is regarded by many as one of hard rock's all-time greatest frontmen, Rose is also infamous for his onstage antics, disputes with former bandmates, and for his constant rewriting of the Chinese Democracy album. Axl Rose has hit his own fans with glass bottles, told Jon Bon Jovi to suck his dick, compared Indianapolis residents to "prisoners in Auschwitz" and canceled concerts without warning.  It's the rawness of Rose that forms the core of his appeal. He's always had his own look, his own vocal style, his own attitude and his own agenda. In the rock 'n' roll marketplace of the '80s and of today -- when consumers are given a choice between overproduced pop/hip-hop and industrialized metal -- the sheer honesty of Axl Rose stands out. He's always given the world a piece of his mind.  Rose's personal problems, legal travails and general immaturity can never overshadow his talent. Axl Rose kicks ass! He was the guy who repeatedly made people listen, then told them to fuck off. Few rock 'n' rollers have given the world a more sincere dedication to pure, authentic anger. No one could have seen it coming.
