Axl Rose was born William Bruce Rose in Lafayette, Indiana in 1962. He moved to Los Angeles at the beginning of the 1980’s, where he first played in various bands, then founded Guns’N’ Roses in 1985 with one of his former band mates, Tracii Guns. The line-up that was soon to become legendary included Slash as lead guitarist, Izzy Stradlin as rhythm guitarist, Steven Adler at the drums and Duff McKagan as bassist.

By the end of the following year they prepared and released their first EP with 4 songs, followed by Appetite for Destruction, the album that brought the band international success in 1987.

The band was involved in a number of controversies because of their explicit lyrics, but that did not hinder their success. Their first major album was followed by Use Your Illusion in 1990. The double album’s success matched the success of the previous release, but the relationship among the members of the band became more and more tense, leading to the complete impossibility to carry on playing together by the following year.

The band never announced their break-up officially, but they stopped working together after the Use Your Illusion tour. Axl retreated to his Malibu mansion, being often called the greatest recluse of rock music.

Guns’N’ Roses reappeared in 2001 with a completely different line-up – Rose had previously obtained solo ownership of the band’s name and at the beginning of the 21st century saw the band led by Axl Rose again. However, scandal followed Axl all the way – he was notoriously late for concerts and made decisions without consulting fellow band members, which brought about tension in the new formation, too.

They continued to work, though, releasing the album entitled Chinese Democracy in 2008, but without Axl participating in the promotion. The original line-up of the band was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but that did not lead to the reconciliation between the members.

Axl Rose is also the receiver of numerous awards and Rolling Stones magazine called him one of the greatest singers of all time – he is definitely a league of his own, with an unmistakable voice and an extraordinary, powerful presence on stage.
