It's not nice to make fun of people's weight, but in the case of Axl Rose, it's just too easy. When we've written of Fat Axl, or FAxl as I like to call him, previously people cried Photoshop! but these new photos from this past weekend prove no photoshopping in the world could look as bad as the real thing. Axl is old, and has put on some pounds. (more…)
I've always found the practice of naming such a strange and fascinating concept. Today more than ever we put such a huge importance on finding the right name for things be it a nick name, stage name, band name, or even a profile user name. I'm sure at some point in your life you've even thought about changing your own birth name to something cooler.
I started wondering about all the names in metal history we've come to know and love, who they started out as, and more importantly how their new names came to be.

Slash got the royal Hollywood treatment yesterday, as he got a star on the Hollywood walk of fame, something I thought was really cool until I learned you actually have to pay $30,000 for your star.

Sheen got up and did some roasting of his good friend and couldn't help but take a shot at Slash's former bandmate, Axl Rose. Here's what he said: (more…)
Celebrities, they're just like us! They all poop, they all sleep and they all serve jury duty. This includes "Fat" Axl Rose, formerly just Axl Rose of Guns N Roses. FAxl has just completed serving a four day stint on jury duty in Santa Monica, CA for a civil trial, and he's actually been showing up! I guess when the government tells FAxl to show up on time, in the morning no less, FAxl makes it a point to get there. (more…)
Here is a new video that popped up recently on Metal Insider of bloated Axl Rose in a good mood, hanging out with some fans this past Friday, October 14th at the Hotel Sheraton in Asunción, Paraguay. Axl seems to be drunk (shocker) and jolly (legit shocker) talking about the old days and cock-blocking a pass-out drunk Slash, and getting his babes.
