???Hey I don`t like that crazy ass MF, but I mean he did get famous as hell on that look. Also that dude from poison. This only further my stance on the utter versatility of the bandanna.
Axl Rose was famous for the bandana and sunglasses look now he added a hat, slash the top hat and sunglasses. Its a general biker look that most musicians like to follow.
I saw GnR in 2006 or as I liked to call them at the time "Axl's Roses" since there was only one other original member at the time. Man, Axl sounded amazing he really had a good opportunity for a comeback but a bad release of Chinese Democracy both due to bad marketing and songs leaking over the years before '08. I practically had the whole album in 2005/06 so when it actually came out it wasnt really new.
Then 2012 r&r hall of fame no show from Axl only to re-unite in end of 2015.
I saw them in 2016, also had front row tix for 2020 show (cancelled due to covid).
Axl's voice is not what it was but gnr still easily one of my fave bands. If you think about it they had a short career 85-93 were all the main releases (8 years), similar with nirvana 87-94 (7 years). Thats a lot for both of those bands to achieve in such a short run.
