The Evolution Of Axl Rose

Through The Years

Love him or hate him, Axl Rose is a force to be reckoned with. With a career spanning over three decades, there’s no doubt that he absolutely deserved his spot in the rock ‘n roll pantheon. From the beginning, he’s always been loud, extra, and unpredictable – traits that eventually propelled him to the top. Even in his ’50s, he has proven that not only can he still hit those high notes BUT he has enough range and power to pull off his stint as a temporary frontman of another legendary group, AC/DC.

It’s not easy being someone with many haters but somehow, his best revenge is by performing in sold-out shows. So now let’s take a quick trip down memory lane by looking at his old photos – oh and of course it goes without saying that we’ll be silently judging his fashion evolution too.

P.S. There are some missing entries especially during the Axl in the Wilderness years when he lived as a recluse and hardly saw anyone.

The Guns ‘n Roses summer tour will start on June and it has been recently revealed that Angus Young is writing new material with Axl Rose so that’s probably why we haven’t seen him that much this year.
