I’ve always hated Axl Rose.
I’ve never known the guy personally, so I guess it’s not him in particular that I really hate, but I can’t stand his voice. Therefore, I’ve never, ever liked Guns ‘n’ Roses. Which is a shame, because as a band — musically — they’re pretty awesome. (I love Velvet Revolver – the same band with former Stone Temple Pilots’ frontman Scott Weiland in place of Axl.)
But have any of you seen Axl Rose lately? I couldn’t believe it when I looked at him. He had all sorts of plastic surgery done, so now he looks like a character from Aqua Teen Hunger Force or something. (If you’ve seen the episode where Shake goes to Haiti or someplace to get cheap plastic surgery done, you know what I’m talking about.)
Anyway, look at these pictures. Obviously the one on the right is a younger Axl on the cover of Rolling Stone. But look at that freakin’ guy on the left. What the fuck happened?
This reminds me of something I wrote in a column for Negative Waves years ago. This was part of a predictions column; I was making predictions as to what would happen in the year 2004.
Former Guns ‘N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose, will come out of a state semi-retirement to announce that he is officially going into a state of semi-retardedment.
