|Who is Axl
Some say Axl Rose is the
best entertainer on the planet. Ax Rose certainly had the world at his
feet back in 1992-1993. Back in 1991, when the whole world was awaiting (the
first) return of Guns n' Roses, one could real in Rock music magazines : "What
the world needs is Axl Rose".
Axl Rose was a choirboy, gospel singer,
pianist, and even taught Sunday school in his
childhood. His extremely strict upbringing led him to
rebel by the age of sixteen. Getting into trouble left and right with over
20 terms (he only admits to guilt on about 5 occasions).
Axl Rose was once known by the name of Bill Bailey. Bailey being his
stepfathers name. He took the name of Rose when he found out when he found
out it was his real father's name.
Rose felt that
leaving Indiana was his only option so he took off in search of his friend
Jeff (Izzy) Isbell, who had already left to seek fame and fortune in
Hollywood. In 1986, William legally changed his name to Axl. Axl
Rose is the singer of Guns N' Roses since June 6th 1985 (date the band
lineup was finalized). Axl
Rose is multi-talented with an extreme and powerful vocal range, piano
skills, and has even recently taken up the guitar to add to his abilities.
Axl Rose is currently the only original member still part of Guns n'
Roses. Axl Rose has also bought the name "Guns n' Roses" and is the sole
owner of the name.
The year 2001 will certainly be remenbered as the year of the second
return of Guns n' Roses considering that Axl Rose did 4 concerts (we'll
just forget about the twice cancelled European tour). Axl Rose also said
he was working day and night on a new album to be called "Chinese
Democracy". Doug Goldstein (Guns n' Roses manager) also talked about the
soon to be released album.
2002 will be remembered for the European Tour, the Axl Rose performance at
MTV Music Video Awards, and the North American Tour complete with two
