Axl Rose is an American rock singer, songwriter and musician. He’s the lead singer of the band, Guns N’ Roses and most recently AC/DC. Rose was born William Bruce Rose, Jr. on February 6, 1962 in Lafayette, Indiana. His parents ‘Sharon’ and ‘William’ separated when he was a toddler. He has two half siblings, Amy and Stuart from his mother’s marriage to ‘Stephen Bailey’. Rose attended Lafayette Jefferson High School where he was a member of the school chorus. He also had several run-ins with the law during his late teens.
Rose moved to Los Angeles, California in 1982 at the age of 20. He was a member of the bands Hollywood Rose, and L.A. Guns. The two bands merged in 1985 to form Guns N’ Roses. Their original lineup included Axl Rose, Slash, Izzy Stradlin, Duff McKagan and Steven Adler. Their debut studio album, Appetite for Destruction, was released on July 21, 1987. The album was a commercial success. It peaked at #1 on the Billboard 200 and sold over 30 million copies worldwide. The follow up albums for Guns N’ Roses include G N’ R Lies (1988), Use Your Illusion I & II (1991), and The Spaghetti Incident? (1993). The band went silent in 1993 following their last ‘Use Your Illusion Tour’ performance.
Rose reappeared in 2001 after several years out of the public eye. He toured alongside his new bandmates to promote their upcoming album, Chinese Democracy. The album was released years later on November 23, 2008. The album was not very successful and Rose attributed it to lack of support from Interscope Records. Rose was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012 as a member of Guns N’ Roses. He became the lead vocalist for the band AC/DC in April 2016 replacing Brian Johnson.
Axl Rose is 5ft 9in tall and has a net worth of $150 million. He was married to model ‘Erin Everly’ from 1990-1991. The marriage was annulled in January 1991.
