Axl Rose

W. Axl Rose is an American singer, record producer and musician, he is the lead vocalist of the hard rock band Guns N' Roses, has been the band's sole constant member since its inception in 1985. In addition to Guns N' Roses, he toured with Australian rock band AC/DC in 2016 during the final two legs of their Rock or Bust World Tour when Brian Johnson took a break due to hearing problems. Rose has been named one of the greatest singers of all time by various media outlets, including Rolling Stone and NME. Born and raised in Lafayette, Rose moved in the early 1980s to Los Angeles, where he became active in the local hard rock scene and joined several bands, including Hollywood Rose and L. A. Guns. In 1985, he co-founded Guns N' Roses, with whom he had great success and recognition in the late 1980s and early 1990s, their first album, Appetite for Destruction, has sold in excess of 30 million copies worldwide, is the best-selling debut album of all time in the U. S. with 18 million units sold. Its full-length follow-ups, the twin albums Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II, were widely successful.

After 1994, following the conclusion of their two-and-a-half-year Use Your Illusion Tour, Rose disappeared from public life for several years, while the band disintegrated due to personal and musical differences. As its sole remaining original member, he was able to continue working under the Guns N' Roses banner because he had obtained the band name. In 2001, he resurfaced with a new line-up of Guns N' Roses at Rock in Rio 3, subsequently played periodic concert tours to promote the long-delayed Chinese Democracy, which undersold the music industry's commercial expectations despite positive reviews upon its release. In 2012, Rose was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Guns N' Roses, though he declined to attend the event and requested exclusion from the Hall. In 2016, the same year as he toured with AC/DC, Rose reunited the "classic" lineup of Guns N' Roses and has since toured the world as part of the Not in This Lifetime... Tour. Rose was born William Bruce Rose Jr. in Lafayette, the oldest child of Sharon Elizabeth 16 years old and still in high school, William Bruce Rose 20 years old.

He is of maternal German ancestry. His father has been described as "a troubled and charismatic local delinquent," and the pregnancy was unplanned, his parents separated when Rose was two years old, prompting his father to abduct and molest him before disappearing from Lafayette. His mother remarried to Stephen L. Bailey, changed her son's name to William Bruce Bailey, he has two younger siblings—a sister, a half-brother, Stuart. As a young child both Axl and his siblings were beaten; until the age of 17, Rose believed. He never met his biological father as an adult. Rose did not learn about the murder until years later; the Bailey household was religious. Rose recalled an oppressive upbringing, stating, "We'd have televisions one week my stepdad would throw them out because they were Satanic. I wasn't allowed to listen to music. Women were evil. Everything was evil." He accused his stepfather of physically abusing him and his siblings and sexually abusing his sister. Rose found solace in music from an early age.

He sang in the church choir from the age of five, performed at services with his brother and sister under the name the Bailey Trio. At Jefferson High School, he studied piano. A second baritone, Rose began developing "different voices" during chorus practice to confuse his teacher, he formed a band with his friends, one of whom was Jeff Isbell known as Izzy Stradlin. At the age of 17, while going through insurance papers in his parents' home, Rose learned of his biological father's existence, he unofficially readopted his birth name. However, he referred to himself only as W. Rose, because he did not want to share a first name with his biological father. Following the discovery of his true family origins, Rose became a local juvenile delinquent in Lafayette. After Lafayette authorities threatened to charge him as a habitual criminal, Rose moved to Los Angeles, California, in December 1982. After moving to Los Angeles, he became so engrossed in his band AXL that his friends suggested he call himself Axl Rose.

Shortly after his arrival in Los Angeles, Rose met guitarist Kevin Lawrence outside The Troubadour in West Hollywood and joined his band Rapidfire. They recorded a five-song demo in May 1983, after years of legal action, was released as an EP, Ready to Rumble, in 2014. After parting ways with Lawrence, he formed the band Hollywood Rose with his childhood friend Izzy Stradlin, who had moved to Los Angeles in 1980, 16-year-old guitarist Chris Weber. In January 1984, the band recorded a five-song demo featuring the tracks "Anything Goes", "Rocker", "Shadow of Your Love", "Reckless Life", released in 2004 as The Root
