Rose was raised in Lafayette, Indiana in a dysfunctional family environment. His love of music was fostered by singing in church, participating in school chorus and studying piano, but his numerous run-ins with the police and activities in his youth led to his leaving home as a teenager.
.As the lead singer for Guns N' Roses, Rose enjoyed tremendous success, recognition, record and concert ticket sales in the late 1980s and early 1990s before dropping out of the public eye for several years.^ She claims she supported Rose before he made it big and that he proposed to her on several occasions.

As a child, Rose believed that Bailey was his biological father.[2]
Because of his turbulent upbringing and his mother's reluctance to leave the abusive Bailey, Rose is said to have issues with women. He claimed in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine in April 1992, that during his childhood, he was made to believe that women and sexuality were evil and that due to the violent treatment of his mother by his stepfather he witnessed as an impressionable child, he had been led to think that domestic violence was normal in families.[2][7]
.The Bailey household was deeply religious, and Rose and his family having attended a Pentecostal church, where he was required to attend services three to eight times per week.^ "I had to go to church anywhere from three to eight times a week.

He later spoke of his upbringing:
My particular church was filled with self-righteous hypocrites who were child abusers and child molesters. .These were people who'd been damaged in their own childhoods and in their lives.^ They were the only band that people who lived in my city in Indiana would accept wearing make-up and dressed cool."

—Axl Rose
Church did provide an outlet for Rose's musical interests. In addition to singing in church, he also participated in his high school chorus and studied piano.[9]
Rose speaks in the baritone register, for he originally sang in the low baritone range in his choir. However, his singing voice is of a tenor[10] range. He can sing parts ranging from bass, to baritone, and to a high falsetto/soprano, and has several different recognized "voices" used in his songs. He has stated that he originally started to develop his range to confuse his chorus teacher in school.[8][11][12]
He attended Jefferson High School in Lafayette.[13] .He dropped out of high school.^ He dropped out of Jefferson High School in his junior year.

[14] .At age 17, while going through papers in his parents' home, Rose learned of his biological father's existence and his own origins, and readopted his birth name, William Rose (although he was still legally William Bailey).^ My parents are still alive, so I don't go.

He referred to himself as W. Rose only, however, as he did not wish to share a name with his biological father.[2]
After discovering the truth of his background, Rose began "acting out" in earnest. He was in trouble numerous times with the police, and was arrested over twenty times on charges such as public drunkenness and assault. At age 16, he was kicked out of his house for not cutting his hair. At this age, Rose also met future Guns guitarist Izzy Stradlin in a driver's education class.[15] .The two bonded over their love of rock music and eventually started playing in bands together.^ I have to look into it more: They're really talentless people, and they write crap music, and they're the most popular rock band on the earth right now.

Stradlin eventually left Rose, and Indiana, to go to Los Angeles and focus on music.
Lafayette authorities threatened to charge Rose as a habitual criminal in his late teenage years.[9] When he was 17, on the advice of his lawyer, he left Indiana and began hitchhiking and taking buses across the country.[16] .Although he returned to Indiana to visit family from time to time, he left for good in December 1982 and moved to Los Angeles, accompanied by a girlfriend.^ Saints Of Los Angeles release date moved to June 24th .

Rose continued to recruit new musicians to replace the charter members as they gradually defected. The last charter member of the band to go (aside from Rose himself) was Duff McKagan.
By the late 1990s, he was considered to be a recluse, rarely making public appearances and spending most of his time holed up in his mansion in Malibu. .In various reports in the press, he was referred to as the "Howard Hughes of rock" and "rock's greatest recluse".[23][35] Rose was said to spend his nights rehearsing and writing with the various new lineups of Guns N' Roses, working on the band's next album, Chinese Democracy.^ It's their first studio album of new material by the group's original lineup in a decade.

Controversy

Drug use

After Guns N' Roses became successful, Rose noted that he had stopped using any sort of hard drugs.[42] .He did not disavow the use of illicit substances, stating in a 1989 interview "I have a different physical constitution and different mindset about drugs than anybody I've known in Hollywood, because I don't abstain from doing drugs, but I won't allow myself to have a fuckin' habit.^ Many different businesses that could use a handout won't get one.

Although Rose has not been known for alcohol abuse, on June 26, 2006, he was arrested in Stockholm, Sweden, after an early morning altercation in his hotel lobby with hotel security. Rose is alleged to have bitten a security guard's leg and shattered an antique lobby mirror while in a drunken rage. .Rose later commented in a press release: "We had a great gig in Stockholm and I am not going to let this incident spoil that.^ Comments: Great Site for Metal Fans with many very interest Links and Information - Real good work - go for it!

"One in a Million"

In 1988, Guns N' Roses released the EP G N' R Lies. .Although the album had strong sales, there was outrage among some members of the public over the lyrics of the song "One in a Million", which included the words "niggers" and "faggots". As Rose was the lyricist of the piece and the song was composed about his personal experiences, he was labeled racist and homophobic, charges he strenuously denied.^ They will kill some brands and there will probably be a merger so the big three will be two maybe one.

John (along with Bernie Taupin) was a big influence on his musical and lyrical outlook. He also paid tribute to Freddie Mercury, another huge influence, at the 1992 Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert, where he again performed with John, this time singing Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody". Rose has maintained his friendship with John to the current day and inducted him into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.[46][47]

Riots, rants, and legal troubles

Throughout Guns N' Roses' career, Rose has been notorious for personally addressing disruptive fans and giving instructions to security guards from the stage, at times stopping concerts to deal with issues in the crowd. .In his 1992 Rolling Stone interview Rose explained, "Most performers would go to a security person in their organization, and it would just be done very quietly.^ It would just be too much of a shock to the economy to lose such a large number of jobs at once (this would go with any sector).

[2] He has also been noted for his late appearances at concerts, sometimes taking the stage hours after the opening acts.[2][48][49]
In many instances Rose's actions have seemed to be based in concern for the safety of the band and audience members. At the 1988 Monsters of Rock concert at Castle Donington, England during which two fans were crushed, Rose stopped the show several times when asked by security, as the audience rushed the stage. The fans had begun edging forward when the band appeared onstage. The final report into the Donington tragedy noted that Rose had immediately cooperated with venue security when advised of the dangerous crowd conditions, and had attempted to calm the crowd.[50] In a more recent incident, during a concert in 2006 in Birmingham, Rose stopped the show and had a security guard ejected for assaulting a fan in the audience.[51]
In July 1991, during the early stages of the 28-month-long Use Your Illusion Tour, Rose jumped off stage during a concert in St. Louis to take a video camera away from a fan. .The concert was aborted as Rose threw his microphone down and stormed off stage saying "Thanks to the lame-ass security, I'm going home!"^ "There is a delicious irony in seeing private luxury jets flying into Washington, D.C., and people coming off of them with tin cups in their hand, saying that they're going to be trimming down and streamlining their businesses," Rep.

The other band members followed and the house lights came on, sparking an intense riot that caused significant damage to both the newly-constructed arena and Guns N' Roses' equipment and instruments.[52] Rose was blamed for the melee, and was charged with four counts of misdemeanor assault and one charge of property damage, for which he was arrested in 1992. Guns N Roses were also banned from St. Louis for life.[53] .The case eventually went to trial in late 1992, and resulted in a conviction, two years' probation and a US $50,000 fine for Rose.^ NIKKI SIXX, BASSIST, MOTLEY CRUE: Well, you know, to be honest, we went out, what, two years ago, and we did...

A riot ensued, which spilled out into the streets. Authorities were barely able to bring the chaos under control.[23]
.On November 7th, 2002 at Vancouver's General Motors Place, Rose did not show up for a scheduled show.^ It seems Avril Lavigne think shes hit Axl Rose status and showed up late for a show.

The crowd became upset resulting in a riot causing thousands of dollars of damage to General Motors Place. Allegations of police brutality would follow the incident.
Problems have also occurred at several of Guns N' Roses's more recent concert events. On June 11, 2006, Guns N' Roses headlined the Download Festival in Donington Park, England. Within the first half hour of the show, Rose had become annoyed with the quality of the sound and had also lost his footing, nearly causing him to fall due to the "slippery stage". After briefly leaving and returning to the set mid song, throwing the microphone on the floor and exiting the stage citing technical difficulties while leaving Bumblefoot to play an instrumental of the song "Don't Cry", he returned to the stage with tennis shoes on (he was previously wearing boots), announced that he had some old friends to bring out, and was joined by Izzy Stradlin to play "Used to Love Her". Stradlin left and returned to the stage multiple times, for "Patience", and the final number "Paradise City". During the night, Rose was also joined by Sebastian Bach and together they sang "My Michelle".[54]
On July 19, 2006, at a show in Newcastle, England, Rose walked off-stage during the performance of "Nightrain" after what was alleged to be a £1 coin was thrown on to the stage directly at him. Rose addressed the crowd off-stage and informed them that any person caught throwing objects at him or any other members of the band must be ejected from the auditorium. .The band returned to the stage to finish the song after which Rose declared "The show is over", the band departed and the house lights were resumed.^ My Email: metalchick99@hotmail.com Best Metal Band: motley crue Best Metal Voice: axl rose Best Metal Song: kick start my heart Best Metal Page: motley.com .

They did not play the usual "Paradise City" encore.
On December 11, 2009, at the Los Angeles International Airport, as he was leaving for Guns N' Roses' tour opener in Taipei, Rose got into a minor scuffle with a photographer. He ended up punching him in the face and then being carried off by his entourage. It started when the photographer got into a minor altercation with a member of Rose's entourage, which angered Rose, leading him to threaten him and attack him. The photographer has stated he will not press charges.[55]

Events surrounding Chinese Democracy

Record executives at Geffen were reported to be furious with Rose for not doing any promotion or publicity for Chinese Democracy. AOL Canada Entertainment reported that, as of December 2, 2008, he had been missing for at least two months and had not returned any phone calls or other requests.[56]
.On December 11, 2008, Rose finally broke his silence, answering questions in person on three Guns N' Roses discussion boards and mentioning an upcoming music video for "Better".[57] A far more comprehensive view of Axl Rose's interpretation of the controversy regarding the release of Chinese Democracy was published on February 6, 2009, Rose's 47th birthday, in both Billboard and on Reuters.^ December 11, 2008 at 06:06 AM anonymous .

In the interview, Rose speaks with disdain towards Interscope Records and in particular the chief of Interscope, Jimmy Iovine. He states that he never really received the support from them that he expected. .The interview, technical in nature, reveals Rose's substantial knowledge of the inside workings of the music business, and how the rapid transformation of the music industry has worked against Guns n' Roses' release of Chinese Democracy.^ And you obviously have no clue as to how the economics in the auto industry have worked.

Work outside of music

Axl provided the voice of Tommy "The Nightmare" Smith, former lead singer of the fictional 1970s rock band Crystal Ship (a reference to the song by The Doors) and radio DJ of Classic rock radio K-DST, in the game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.[59]
In addition, Rose appeared as an uncredited background performer in a funeral scene in Clint Eastwood's 1988 film The Dead Pool, along with the rest of the then-current lineup of Guns N' Roses.[60]
In 2009, it was confirmed that Rose will be producing the film adaptation of the novel Almost Home.[61]

Personal life

Feuds

Relationships

.Throughout the mid eighties and into the early nineties, Rose was involved in a turbulent relationship with Erin Everly, the daughter of singer Don Everly.^ They experienced a similar disaster in the late eighties and early nineties and have not recovered.

Rose wrote the lyrics of "Sweet Child o' Mine" about her, and she appeared in the video for the song.[62] .Rose and Everly were wed on April 28, 1990 in Las Vegas,[63] albeit under duress: according to Everly, Rose showed up at her home, told her he had a gun in his car, and that he would kill himself if she did not marry him.^ Another interesting point from that article shows that the companies were selling 17 million cars up until 2005 as opposed to the current 12 million or so.

[64] Rose wanted one of his heroes, Dan McCafferty frontman of Nazareth, to perform at his wedding. McCafferty commenting in 2004 said "I laughed when Axl asked me to sing "Love Hurts" at his wedding, because the song seemed to last for longer than the marriage! Around 18 people from their management kept phoning me to ask – 18 people! – but I eventually told them I was busy, which I probably was."[65]
The couple separated after less than a month of marriage,[19] but later reconciled for several months, during which time Everly became pregnant. She suffered a miscarriage in October 1990. This deeply affected Rose, who had wanted to have children of his own. The day after Everly's miscarriage, Rose was arrested after allegedly assaulting a neighbor with a wine bottle after the neighbor threatened to call the police because of Rose's loud music. The marriage between Everly and Rose was annulled in January 1991.[19][64] Rose has never re-married and has no children.
.After the breakup, Rose allegedly continued to try to contact Everly for more than a year, sending her flowers, letters, and even caged birds.^ Pffft, Pleeeaase, Mr. W. Axl Rose ain't gotta do nothing, I'd be more than pleased to treat you any True Gunner would treat you.

[64] In 1994, Everly filed a civil lawsuit against Rose, alleging various incidents of physical and emotional domestic violence had occurred before and during the marriage; the suit was eventually settled out of court.[23][29]
By mid 1991, Rose had become involved with model Stephanie Seymour. While they were together, Seymour appeared in two Guns N' Roses videos, "November Rain" and "Don't Cry". Rose became deeply attached to Seymour's son, Dylan, and tried to be a good father figure for the child, as there had been none in his own life. Seymour and Rose parted ways in early 1993,[23][42] Rose and Seymour then filed lawsuits against each other, each claiming that the other was physically abusive. In support of her case, Seymour subpoenaed Erin Everly, Rose's ex-wife, so Everly would testify that she was also abused by Rose. The lawsuits were settled out of court.[29][64]
