Well, Rose never had the best voice to start, but it's just abysmal now.


Most people who state that base their opinions on Rock in Rio (2011), which was not a good concert. It was an off night, and Axl generally sings quite well.

Axl still has the voice he once had. He just uses it sparingly. Here are a couple of videos from the last couple of years showing that Axl can still sing:









And i don't know how you can say that Axl never had a great voice...








There is absolutely no way he can make it last an entire show, let alone a tour.


Not the rasp, but he generally sings okay. He has off-nights, like all people, but he's generally pretty good. He was consistent in his final leg of shows in Las Vegas last year.


Oh, also, Rose is just a terrible human being. He doesn't deserve anymore fame or cash.


Axl has mental health problems which probably contribute to many of his actions. The public only sees one side of him. A lot of people who personally know Axl say he's a nice guy.

THEY were the biggest thing in rock during the 80s and 90s,


In your mind maybe.

There where at least a dozen acts bigger that G & R in those days. Queen, U2 and Springsteen to just name three.




Wow Queen and Springsteen? Really?

Springsteen had little after Born in the USA and that was earlier than GnR. Queen was nothing in the 80's and only received a modest revival after the movie Waynes World. U2 are a comparable super group but in a totally different context.

GnR returned hard rock back to its bad boy roots in a time when most rock n roll bands were caught up in hair spray and ballads. Four great albums that I still play to this day.

Its too bad grunge (which I also love) came out and crushed the momentum they had going after UYI one and two; well that and Axl becoming a drama queen.

Ive actually thought a lot about which one of these bands does the world need a modern day equivalent to kick start rock n roll again.
1) Nirvana
2) GnR
3) Led Zeppelin

I think GnR.

All 3 are 'supergroups'. If you say Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band and his big bank account isn't one, you don't get out much. If you think Queen 'only had a modest revival after Wayne's World', you have never left the US.

He didn't have a great singing voice.

Make no mistake, it was perfect for what he did.

Dave Mustaine has arguably the worst singing voice in metal history, but it wouldn't be Megadeth without that voice.

Oh and Megadeth totally crushed any 80's metal.

All three are supergroups. Different eras though. Queen was not a player on the rock n roll stage in the late 80's and neither was the boss. Sure my view may have a regional slant but lets at least compare the same era.

I can see it now.

slash was minding his business being a good guy, feeding his boa constrictors while simultaneously picking which identicle black hat out of his walk in hat closet he should wear for the day when there was a knocking on his door.

he answers his front door and initially sees nothing. then he pans down and sees this smeagol looking creature crawling like the one armed terminator on the floor begging with a sad wizened outstretched hand.

in a raspy but still yet whiny voice axle croakes out "please!! slash, please!! help me! I can't sing anymore, nobody will talk to me, I tried to call all the old producers from the 80s and they all hung up on me laughing. Women run repulsed. they won't give me a job as the recceptionist at Sound Arena rehearsal lockouts behind the recycling junkyard on van nuys blvd. they gave it to some homeless guy instead! none of the old members of my, um I mean, OUR old band will talk to me. my hairs falling out and my singing sounds like gravel being shoveled off a cement sidewalk. I blew all my money on some delusion called chinese democracy and finally my friend kicked my off his couch where ive been living for the last decade. heeeeeelp me slash you're my only hope."

slash thinks about it, slams the door shut and goes back to his hat collection.

for 10 days axle lived in a leaf dander nest he gathered up from the front yard of slashes house, whimpering and occasionally palming the Windows of slashes warm an luxurious home looking in with a pathetic pleading longing in his eyes.

then slash gets sad, talks to his friends who tell him no. finally his kid's change his mind by telling him to have some compassion for the wretched soul that was once his former friend and bandmate and decides to give axel another chance.

two hours goes by and axel is already strutting around slashes house feet up on the furnature making demands and proclaiming his back up band have finally come crawling back to him desperate for the good old days under his leadership.

guns n roses is back!

I always thought Axl was one of the best. Jagger and Plant mixed into one. Personal preference.

Mustaine was always a poor mans Dickinson to me (dick was my fav from that era) but Megadeth put out some great albums. Hangar 18 still rocks today.

rust in peace was megadeths best album in my opinion. lucretia.... damn that's a good song. id choose mustang over hetfield anyday. although an emotional train wreck at least Dave has some intellectual capacity and hasn't made an entire carrier stealing his old band mates signature sound and claiming it as his own.

It wasn't until I watched a documentary on Megadeth that realized how big an impact Mustaine made on metal guitar.

In the doc, literally every member of the other three "Big Four" bands (Anthrax, Metallica, and Slayer) say that Megadeth and Mustaine influenced them a lot. They talk about how Dave was just a riff machine and if it wasn't for him metal wouldn't be the same today. There was great talent in the orginal members and later iterations of the band.

Was cool to see them all being so candid, especially Hetfield and Ulrich...

While i think the meme is funny, your source of him sounding like # is a benefit concert he played despite being sick. You probably wouldn't sing well either if you were sick and suffering from strep throat.

There are many more videos of him singing adequately than there are of him sounding like utter #.

Here's a more recent example (2014) of Axl singing WTTJ:

Im with ya on the preference over Metallica. I thought Metallica invented all this until I discovered the NWOBHM sound and realized they were born out of that, refined it, and made millions. I know they didn't hide the influence of that scene, but still took some of the shine off for me.

Justice for All is the only album by them I still listen to today. I know its not held up as their best work, but the sound engineering of it to me was just awesome.

I give Mustaine props though for leaving (kicked out whatever) and forging his own sound.

Ah, the old 'i know someone who knows [insert name here]' post. It doesn't give you any more credibility than others, and the fact that you misspelled Axl's name doesn't help your argument either.

As i pointed out earlier, Axl suffers from mental health issues. That could possibly have a significant affect on him and his interaction with people. In the end, I trust people who have known him for a longer period over people who had to work with him a couple of times. If most people say he's generally a nice guy, then he's generally a nice guy.

Guys like him and Cobain always came across as introverts to me. Maybe less so Axl; but still socially awkward. As I fall into this category myself I can understand the difficulties of being thrown into the public spotlight.

In the end though its all in the quality of the music. Could not care less what kind of people they are; I will never hang out with them one way or the other.

alright fair enough
if you say you've found people who say he's a awesome guy then that gives me some hope for axl, axel, whatever his spelling is. but that sure dont match up with what most people say about him that have had the displeasure. if 3 people say your a horse, then buy a saddle as the old saying goes.
