Here’s a look back at some of my favorite Axl Rose personas over the years. Enjoy!
Not only was Axl’s catcher’s vest a nice fashion accessory, but I’m sure it also protected him on many occasions when drunk fans chucked beer bottles on stage.
He looks so young, so innocent, how could this kid ever get on someone’s bad side?
Though GN’R helped put an end to let’s-all-dress-up-like-girls-and-play-hairspray-metal, even Axl had an affinity for the product back in the band’s early days.
Honey did you make the reservations for 7PM? Are Bob and Lisa still coming? Did we get the table next to the window with the fantastic view? Greeeaaaat, just checking.
Just have to say, this was one of my favorite Axl looks.
I don’t know a lot about botox, plastic surgery, or hair extensions, but something doesn’t look right about this Axl.
This is the Axl that many rock die-hards loved and adored (and still do).
Gotta love the patriotism. In a weird rock-star kind of way, you also have to appreciate that big bulge coming from his spandex shorts.
Kind of like the American-Flag-Groin-In-Your-Face Axl, but without the stars and stripes.
Jerry Rice Axl
During Axl’s early 00’s comeback, he just loved wearing his Oakland Raiders Jerry Rice jersey. (I wonder how many of these he still has in his closet?)
This Axl always reminded me of a guy who was just about to go out and work on his car.
I’m liking the western-style jacket. Still waiting for the braids to go, but at least Axl has retired the XXXL Jerry Rice jersey (at least for now anyway).
How many women would kill for that silky head of long, flowing hair?
What a great Axl this is, huh? Utilizing the bracelets and rings from Sunset Axl and the bandana and hat from Young-Backwards-Baseball-Cap Axl, it’s no mystery why this Axl was the biggest rock star on the planet at the end of the 80’s. (Can’t deny the power of that white jacket either.)
