Happy 55th Birthday Axl Rose!

February 8, 2017

Guns N' Roses is on top of the world right now. Not only have they continued to have one of the highest-grossing world tours on record with the reunited trifecta of Axl RoseSlash and Duff McKagan, but on February 6th, 2017, Axl celebrated his 55th birthday!

Many people had serious doubts about Axl's singing ability as well as his punctuality with his history of diva-like behavior. Even our own Mike Hsu issued a viral apology letter to the band. But even at 55, he's still got it!

Axl was born and raised in Lafayette, Indiana on January 6th, 1962 and left for Los Angeles at the age of 21 to pursue a future in music. After bouncing around from band to band, his life took a turn when he began to sing with L.A. Guns, and by the age of 23, Guns N' Roses. From there, GNR has risen to worldwide fame with albums like Appetite For Destruction, and notoriety with their onstage and offstage antics.

Axl and company have matured a lot since then, but they definitely haven't lost their edge or passion to make some real music!

Happy Birthday Axl!
