Axl Rose is the lead guitarist and founding member of rock band Guns N’ Roses. Born in 1962, Axl Rose was born to young parents: his mother was only 16 years old and his father was 20 years old.
In 1985 Axl Rose founded his iconic band, which consisted of guitarist Slash, guitarist Izzy Stradlin, bassist Duff McKagan, and drummer Steven Adler. The band’s debut album, Appetite for Destruction would eventually reach number one on the Billboard 200 and sell over 30 million copies worldwide. The band is best known for songs “Sweet Child O’ Mine” and “November Rain.” Axl Rose was briefly married to Erin Everly from 1990 to 1991 and has no children.
Rumours that Axl Rose underwent plastic surgery began after embarking on a 12 year hiatus from 1994 to 2006. When Axl Rose stepped back into the spotlight, his face was noticeable softer and fuller. The musician has admitted to undergoing botox injections in order to fight the effects of age.
He was a heavy drug user and this had taken a toll on his skin. As a result of plastic surgery, his skin has taken on an overall rosier tint and his forehead is very smooth. All signs of crow’s feet around his eyes and mouth have disappeared.
Axl Rose has also admitted to undergoing Rhinoplasty to make his nose slimmer and more pronounced, and a facelift to make his face look fuller. He has had cheek implants that are very noticeable. Axl Rose has also had hair plugs in order to combat his receding hairline. Hair plugs are extremely expensive and complicated to have put in. They require being placed in strategic areas along the scalp.His facial hair, including a beard and moustache, has still maintained its ginger colouring.
All of this plastic surgery has led Axl Rose to looking eerily young for a man in his 50s, especially one who became famous as a hard rocker. His on stage and behind stage antics have made him one of rock and roll’s most famous singers. After disappearing from the music scene for so long, it’s a shame that his new appearance has garnered more discussion than his new music.
