Axl Rose was bornon 6 February 1962 in Lafayette, Indiana, U.S, American. Love him or hate him; Axl Rose is an illustrious but controversial figure in the world of rock. There have always been two extremes for this personality. Either he is revered by millions of fans around the world or he is looked up as the misogynistic, maniacal lead singer who came from a dysfunctional household and took all his frustrations out on his band members or in his songs. In the last fifteen years, Axl Rose has ranked among the music industry’s most dramatized personalities. His lyrics have always united a profound paranoia that echoes his intensely traumatic childhood, but he brings it all out in an excitingly, freakish manner on stage that audiences either love or abhor. After being kicked out of home and eventually arrested on numerous accounts for public inebriation, he decided to mend his ways by joining the-then ‘L.A. Guns’ and ‘Hollywood Rose’, which combined, became the band that he is lead singer for, ‘Guns N’ Roses’. The band’s first album, ‘Appetite for Destruction’ became a hit all over the world and soon the band began giving one hit after another. After a brief hiatus from the group, he came back to the world of music. He is currently rated as one of the ‘greatest singers of all time’ by NME and Rolling Stone. Scroll further for more.
