I support the idea of Axl being the #1 douchebag in rock & roll, but most of the reasons posted on this list are really stupid.

Man, you guys remember during the days of the Chinese Democracy joke when all the G N' R fans came to the BBS and kept starting shit? It was like, "why are we fighting..?? we are practically family now."

Ahh.. good times. Good times.

I've never listened to a full GNR album, so I have no opinion on this one... though, of course, since I've never listened to it, I can only assume that it sucks and you are wrong. ;)

I think he's pretty good. Y'know, when he's not using his vocal cords.

This is really pathetic. I mean, Axl Rose is kind of a giant asshole, everybody already knows that, but these are such non-points, most of them taken out of context, and some of them just wrong.

I mean, dredlocks? Cornrows? Both times it was braids. More importantly, who gives a fuck about his hair?

"is non-existent sense of humour, He's got no Patience, He hates poodles, White dreads, Terrible dress sense, Cornrows, He's not a one-woman man....."

If someone takes that article seriously they need professional help, specially watching the comments on that blog from EMO's which weren't even born when these guy ruled the world of music with his band.

Either if you love or hate him, Axl Rose is one of the biggest rock & roll stars from all times and 4 kids borned in the 90's dancing pretty fly won't change that.

Axl Rose is a shitty person, and Guns and Roses are terribly boring as a band.

That said: this article is a pretty good reminder that just about all mainstream music press publications are entirely worthless.

I think even the biggest Axl Rose haters can agree that 14 and 7 are just plain retarded.

Personally I don't care. Great songs, great frontman :)

I'm gunna go a little bit Bighead on you all here, and say that sometimes I really feel like that when people hate on Guns n Roses, it's a little bit of a fitting in thing, because it's an easy way to make yourself sound "cool".

I say this because I don't think I've ever seen anyone on this forum saying "Oh, Guns n Roses? Not really my thing" it's always " DERP DERP OMG TEH GNX N RZES R SO WURTHLIZ N TERRIBL N DEY STULE DXTRS BRAIDS OMG DERP". Grow the fuck up if your reason for not liking Guns n Roses is anything to do with the whole Chinese Democracy/Offspring/Dexter/Braids horseshit.

Guns in the Appetite era were a fucking solid, and talented band. Every member of that band was great at what they do, and they had an awesome chemistry live, if you're into rock and roll music (which you probably are if you're on this forum), and aren't into Guns N Roses, I'll find it suspicious, because they were a leader in the field, and you're pretty much missing out on what's easily one of the greatest rock and roll bands there ever were.

Now, if you're just not into them, fine, but saying Axl wasn't an amazing singer, or they were worthless as a band is just nonsense.

This makes me realize what a douchebag Axl is:

Axl fronting AC/DC is just as worst as that Rome guy fronting the fake version of Sublime.

I saw GNR last year at Dodger Stadium and the show was a dream come true :D Axl and Slash were great and they even showed up early and played for almost 3 hours

Maybe he's a good singer, but that doesn't change the fact that he's a douche bag. He's the kind of guy that walks off stage if someone from the crowd throws a plastic cup at him, or jumps on stage or something. He sucks. Dexter is the complete opposite of that, I've seen videos where Dexter invites people to come up on stage with him, one time someone stole his sunglasses off his face while he was singing too close to the crowd, and there was a time he get smacked in the face with a bottle while he was playing and all he did was adjust his sunglasses and keep on singing. Now, can you picture Axl doing any of those things? FUCK NO.

It's true Dexter Holland is a great person Axl Rose is not

Sebastian Bach is a douchebag with no talent and Eddie Trunk is a goober. It seems like Axl Rose was a fan of The Offspring which was cool

I can't fucking stand Eddie Trunk or Sebastian Bach, especially for calling The Offspring a "jack-off band". I was somewhat surprised to see Axl say that he liked The Offspring, especially "Self Esteem" and the song that was in the movie Orange County ("Defy You") which of course predated Splinter.

Axl Rose is a prima donna. Who cares about anything he has to say? He's the kind of guy that will stop a show if a someone throws a bottle of water onto the stage or something. Fuck him.

Went to see Guns N Roses about...7 or 8 years ago. They started late, people was getting tired of waiting and threw plastic bottles to the stage. Finally they turned up and played one of the best concerts I've ever been to, for nearly 3 hours. Even though Slash wasn't in there and their guitarist was by no means comparable to Slash it was still awesome. They brought a piano on stage out of nowhere and some fire works with "Welcome to the Jungle". Still would love to see Axl and Slash playing together. I think they are friends again?
