Early years

Axl Rose was born as William Bruce Rose Jr. in Lafayette, Indiana,[3] to parents Sharon E. and William Rose. The family were of Scots-Irish and German [4] descent. His father left the family when Rose was two years old. As an adult, after recovering repressed memories in therapy, Axl publicly stated that he was sexually abused by his biological father.

Bad Touch redirects here. ...


Axl's mother remarried when he was a small child. She changed his name to William Bailey, using the last name of her new husband, L. Stephen Bailey. He has two younger half-siblings, a sister named Amy and a brother named Stuart. Rose has stated that he, as well as his siblings, were physically abused by Bailey. Growing up, Rose believed that Bailey was his biological father. [3] Physical abuse is abuse involving contact intended to cause pain, injury, or other physical suffering or harm. ...


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 a Rolling Stone interview in 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 the normal way of doing things.[3][6] This article is about the magazine. ... Domestic disturbance redirects here. ...


The Bailey household was deeply religious, and Rose grew up attending a Pentecostal church, where he was required to attend services three to eight times per week.[6] He sang in church from the age of five, and also performed at services with his brother and sister in the "Bailey Trio."[7] Rose was so involved with the church that he even taught Sunday School. Later, he spoke of his disillusion with his religious upbringing: Sunday school, Indians and whites. ...

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. These were people who were finding God but still living with their damage and inflicting it upon their children. I had to go to church anywhere from three to eight times a week. l even taught Bible school while l was being beaten and my sister was being molested.

Axl Rose on his religious upbringing, [6]

Church did provide an outlet for Axl's musical interests. In addition to singing in church, he also participated in his high school chorus and studied piano.[8]


Rose is a second baritone, but has a wide range that allows him to sing parts ranging from bass to 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.[9][7][10] For other uses, see Baritone (disambiguation). ... A bass (or basso in Italian) is a male singer who sings in the deepest vocal range of the human voice. ... This article is about the voice-type. ...


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. He referred to himself as W. Rose only, however, as he did not wish to share a name with his biological father.[3]


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 Izzy Stradlin in a driver's education class.[11] The two bonded over their love of rock music and eventually started playing in bands together. 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. [8]When he was 17, on the advice of his lawyer, he left Indiana and began hitchhiking and taking buses across the country.[12] 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.[13] Recidivism is the act of a person repeating an undesirable behavior after they have either experienced negative consequences of that behavior, or have been treated or trained to extinguish that behavior. ...

Rose eventually adopted the name W. Axl Rose ('Axl' after a band in which he once played), [14] and set out to re-unite with Stradlin. Rose legally changed his name to "W. Axl Rose" in 1986,[9][15] and had the moniker tattooed on his arm.[13]


Pre-Guns N' Roses years

Once in Los Angeles, Rose began performing with various local bands, including Rapidfire[16], Rose, L.A. Guns[17] and Hollywood Rose. While struggling to make an impact on the Hollywood music scene, Rose held down a variety of survival jobs, including the position of night manager at the Tower Records location on Sunset Boulevard. In an attempt to earn money, he and Stradlin even smoked cigarettes for a scientific study at UCLA for the reported wages of $8/hour.

Rose and his L.A. Guns bandmate Tracii Guns formed Guns N' Roses in March 1985; the band was a merger of L.A. Guns and Hollywood Rose, and featured musicians who had played for one or both groups, including Ole Beich and Duff McKagan. The band debuted at the Troubadour in Hollywood and proceeded to play the L.A. circuit, eventually building a fan following and attracting the attention of several record companies.

Success with Guns N' Roses

1995-present

As the stability of Guns N' Roses collapsed, Rose began to withdraw from public view. By the late 1990s, he was considered to be a recluse, rarely making public appearances. In various reports in the press, he was referred to as the "Howard Hughes of rock" [20] and "rock's greatest recluse." [19]Rose was said to spend his nights rehearsing and writing with the various new lineups of Guns N' Roses and to be holed up in his mansion in Malibu. For the Welsh murderer, see Howard Hughes (murderer). ...


In a rare interview with Rolling Stone in 2006, Rose shed more light on his long awaited Chinese Democracy album, "We're working on 32 songs, and 26 are nearly done," he said in the interview. "People will hear music this year," he said. "It's a very complex record, I'm trying to do something different. Some of the arrangements are kind of like Queen. Some people are going to say, 'It doesn't sound like Axl Rose, it doesn't sound like Guns N' Roses.' But you'll like at least a few songs on there."[21] This article is about the magazine. ...

On August 31, 2006, Rose presented The Killers at the MTV Video Music Awards by coming out onto the stage and screaming his trademark, "Do you know where the fuck you are?!"

Controversy

Drug use

Unlike the other members of Guns N' Roses, Rose was never known for excessive drug use. [25]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. I won't allow it." [26] After Guns N' Roses became successful, Rose noted that he had stopped using any sort of hard drugs. [15]


Although Rose has not been known for alcohol abuse, on June 27, 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. My assistant Beta and I were talking in the lobby of the hotel when security started to give us a hard time. My only concern was to make sure she was ok." After spending the next several hours in a Stockholm drunk tank, Rose admitted to all charges and paid roughly $6,000 in fines and was released and the Summer European tour continued as scheduled.

One in a Million

In 1988, Guns N' Roses released the EP G N' R Lies. Although the album had strong sales, there was public outrage 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 [28] and homophobic, charges he heavily denied. The lyrics led to Guns N' Roses being removed from the schedule at a 1989 concert benefiting the Gay Men's Health Crisis at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. [15] When Guns N' Roses and Living Colour supported The Rolling Stones for a concert in Los Angeles in 1989, Living Colour frontman Vernon Reid publicly commented on "One in a Million" during his band's set.

Rose denied allegations of homophobia, however, he claimed that he had had bad experiences with homosexuals, and, as such, he did not understand their way of life. [8]He also pointed out that many of his musical idols, including Elton John and Freddie Mercury, as well as the head of his record company, were gay or bisexual. Following this, in a surprising move, Rose performed "November Rain" with Elton John at the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards. 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.

In addressing the accusations of racism, Rose gave several explanations. In one 1989 interview, he stated that he had used the word to signify "somebody that is basically a pain in your life, a problem. The word nigger doesn't necessarily mean black," and referenced the rap group Niggaz with Attitude (NWA) as using the word in a positive context. [8] Rose was occasionally photographed wearing an NWA hat from then on. By 1992, however, Rose seemed to have gained new perspective on the song and its lyrics. In one interview, he conceded that the word had been used as an insult, but added, "I was pissed off about some black people that were trying to rob me. I wanted to insult those particular black people. I didn't want to support racism." [3] This article is about the rap group. ...


Rose was consistent in strongly denying accusations that he was a racist. He also expressed concern and disapproval at those who used "One in a Million" to promote their own racist views, noting: "There's a lot of people who have chosen to use that song. However that song makes them feel, they think that must be what the song means. If they hate blacks, and they hear my lines and hate blacks even more, I'm sorry, but that's not how I meant it."[6]


Riots and rants

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. I'll confront the person, stop the song: "Guess what: You wasted your money, you get to leave."[3]He has also been noted for his late appearances at concerts, sometimes taking the stage hours after the opening acts.[31][32][3]


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 the audience rushed the stage. 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.[33] 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.[34] Monsters of Rock was an annual rock music festival in England held every August at the Castle Donington racetrack from 1980–1996 (with the odd exception, and a one-off comeback in 2006). ... , Castle Donington is a village with a population of around 7000 in the North West of Leicestershire, close to Derby and Nottingham and on the edge of the National Forest. ...

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 walked off stage and the other band members followed, sparking an intense riot.[35] 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. [36] 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.[37] The Use Your Illusion Tour was a concert tour by the rock band Guns N Roses which ran from May 24, 1991 to July 17, 1993. ...

During a show on August 8, 1992 at Montreal's Olympic Stadium during a summer concert co-headlining tour with Metallica, James Hetfield, lead singer of Metallica, was burned in a pyrotechnics accident, which cut short the previous set. This meant Guns N' Roses needed to take to the stage early, however, Rose, already late for the band's appearance, walked off stage and left the stadium after playing nine songs, claiming he had problems with his voice and deciding to cancel the band's set. Before "Double Talkin' Jive", Rose said this will be “our last show for a long time”, and at the end of "Civil War", their last song, Rose said “Thank you, your money will be refunded” and went off the stage after less than five songs. This led to another riot (voted by VH1 as one of the "50 Most Shocking Moments in Rock and Roll"), which authorities were barely able to bring under control. Metallica stated on its Behind the Music that they were disappointed Guns N' Roses did not play an extended set to mollify disappointed fans. Former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted is also quoted as saying the tour taught them "what not to do" as a band. These incidents, along with the appearance of a new musical style known as grunge, led to a growing impression of Guns N' Roses as a self-indulgent and out-of-date act.[19] is the 220th day of the year (221st in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Since Guns N' Roses' return, Rose's on-stage antics have remained much the same as they were 15 years ago. 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 almost causing him to fall due to the "slippery stage". After briefly leaving and returning 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 on 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 on stage multiple times, for "Patience", and the final number "Paradise City".

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.

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.

Personal life

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. Rose wrote the lyrics of "Sweet Child o' Mine" for Everly, and she appeared in the video for the song. [41] Rose and Everly were wed in late April 1990 in Las Vegas, [42] 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. [43] Interestingly Axl 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.”[44] This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ... Don (born February 1, 1937 in Brownie, a small coal-mining town (now defunct) near Central City, Muhlenberg County, Kentucky) and Phil Everly (born January 18, 1939 in Chicago, Illinois) are country-influenced rock and roll performers who had their greatest success in the 1950s. ...

The couple separated after less than a month of marriage,[15] 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. [15] Miscarriage or spontaneous abortion is the natural or spontaneous end of a pregnancy at a stage where the embryo or the fetus is incapable of surviving, generally defined in humans at a gestation of prior to 20 weeks. ...


After the breakup, Rose allegedly continued to try to contact Everly for more than a year, sending her flowers, letters, and even caged birds. [43]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. [19] Domestic disturbance redirects here. ...


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, and Rose fell into a deep depression. [19] [37] 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.

Feuds

Vince Neil

In 1989, a feud erupted between Rose and Mötley Crüe singer Vince Neil after Neil punched Guns N' Roses guitarist Izzy Stradlin backstage at the MTV Video Music Awards. The punch was said to be in retaliation for a prior incident at the Cathouse, a Los Angeles rock nightclub, in which Stradlin allegedly harassed and assaulted Neil's wife, Sharise. [50] Mötley Crüe (pronounced Motley Crew) is an American heavy metal band formed in Los Angeles, California in 1980. ...

The MTV Video Music Awards were established in 1984 by MTV to celebrate the top music videos of the year. ...


Following the Video Music Awards, Neil and Rose traded insults and challenges for confrontations through the press for a number of months. The duel never happened; each singer accused the other of backing out. [50][51]


Kurt Cobain

Rose had been a big fan of Nirvana and twice asked singer Kurt Cobain to have Nirvana open for Guns N' Roses for the second leg of the Use Your Illusion Tour, which Cobain declined. After declining Rose's offer, Cobain began to talk about Guns N' Roses and Rose to numerous media sources, claiming that they were "so obviously pathetic and untalented" (ironically, both bands were—and still are—signed to Geffen Records, even though Nirvana has disbanded).[52] Rose challenged Cobain to a fight during the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards after Cobain's wife, Courtney Love, jokingly asked Rose to be the godfather to their daughter, Frances Bean.[53][54] This article is about the American grunge band. ... Kurt Donald Cobain (February 20, 1967 – c. ... Geffen Records is an American record label, owned by Universal Music Group, and operates as one third of UMGs Interscope-Geffen-A&M label group. ...

Courtney Love[1] (born Courtney Michelle Harrison on July 9, 1964) is an American rock musician. ... Frances Bean Cobain (born August 18, 1992) is the only child of the late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and Hole frontwoman Courtney Love. ...


In an interview with Michael Azerrad in the unofficial biography Come as You Are, Cobain admitted there was one thing he did like about Guns N' Roses: "They totally mess things up and then they sit back and look at what they messed up and then try to figure out how they can fix it, whereas we mess things up and just dwell on it and make it even worse."


Cobain further commented on Rose's rock star persona, claiming, "His role has been played for years. Ever since the beginning of rock and roll, there's been an Axl Rose. And it's just boring. It's totally boring to me. Why it's such a fresh and new thing in his eyes is obviously because it's happening to him personally and he's such an egotistical person that he thinks that the whole world owes him something."[55]


Then-Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan was one of the last people to see Kurt Cobain alive before his death in 1994,[56] and the other former members of Guns N' Roses are now getting along with the Cobain estate. Courtney Love has privately apologized to Duff McKagan for their criticism of the band. In addition, the two have performed "It's So Easy" live together, [57] and Velvet Revolver, the current band of McKagan and former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash, have played Nirvana's song "Negative Creep" in concert and released a version of it as the B-side of their CD-single for "Slither." Velvet Revolver (abbreviated to VR) is a Grammy Award-winning hard rock supergroup with three former members of Guns N Roses — Slash, Duff McKagan, and Matt Sorum — plus Scott Weiland, the former-lead singer of Stone Temple Pilots, and Dave Kushner of the 80s punk band Wasted Youth. ...

Negative Creep was originally on Nirvanas 1989 debut album, Bleach. ... Slither is the debut single by Velvet Revolver from their debut album Contraband. ...


Velvet Revolver

In March 2006 Rose's lawyer released the following statement: "In October of 2005 Slash made an unannounced 5:30 AM visit to Axl Rose's house. Not appearing to be under the influence, Slash came to inform Axl (about his new band Velvet Revolver) that: 'Duff was spineless,' 'Scott Weiland was a fraud,' that he 'hates Matt Sorum' and that in this ongoing war, contest or whatever anyone wants to call it that Slash has waged against Axl for the better part of 20 years, that Axl has proven himself 'the stronger.' Based on his conduct in showing up at Rose's home, Axl was hopeful that Slash would live up to his pronouncements that he wanted to end the war and move on with life. Unfortunately that did not prove to be the case."[58] Velvet Revolver (abbreviated to VR) is a Grammy Award-winning hard rock supergroup with three former members of Guns N Roses — Slash, Duff McKagan, and Matt Sorum — plus Scott Weiland, the former-lead singer of Stone Temple Pilots, and Dave Kushner of the 80s punk band Wasted Youth. ... Scott Weiland (born Scott Richard Kline, October 27, 1967, Santa Cruz, California [1]) is an American musician, lyricist, and vocalist. ...


Slash did not comment on Rose's press release, but a Velvet Revolver spokeswoman did promise that he would be heard from "within days." Slash never released an official statement on the matter, but on May 13, 2006, during an interview on the Camp Freddy Show on Indie 103.1 FM, he denied ever having visited Rose's house, noting that he had neither seen nor spoken to the singer since the mid 1990s.[59][60] Vocalist Scott Weiland posted an inflammatory letter, addressed to Rose, on the Velvet Revolver official website, but it was quickly removed. [61] Scott Weiland (born Scott Richard Kline, October 27, 1967, Santa Cruz, California [1]) is an American musician, lyricist, and vocalist. ...


In 2007, Slash admitted he in fact had visited Rose's house in 2005, but stated that he had spoken to a housekeeper, not to Rose himself, and that he had not made any of the statements attributed to him. [62]


Tommy Hilfiger

In May 2006, Rose had a close encounter with Tommy Hilfiger at the Plumm nightclub in New York City. Hilfiger reportedly took a couple of swings at Rose, hitting him on the arm and face, before being carried away by his own security guards and ejected from the club. Rose made the claim that the attack began when he moved a drink belonging to Hilfiger's girlfriend so that it would not spill.[63] Thomas Jacob Hilfiger (born March 24, 1951 in Elmira, New York) is a world-famous American fashion designer and creator of the eponymous Tommy Hilfiger and Tommy brands. ...

Club owner Noel Ashman stated "Axl was a gentleman and had the good sense not to retaliate as he would have done some serious damage to Hilfiger."... Guns N' Roses were playing an acoustic set at Rosario Dawson's birthday party. Later that night Rose dedicated the song "You're Crazy".. to "my good friend Tommy Hilfiger."[64] It was rumored on several celebrity gossip chat boards that Rose and Hilfiger (who was wearing a Guns N' Roses t-shirt under a blazer) were seen "hugging" and "burying the hatchet" backstage at the MTV Video Music Awards in late August 2006, although this has not been confirmed by either side.[65] It has been suggested that Unplugged be merged into this article or section. ...

Eagles of Death Metal

On November 24, 2006 at Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena, Rose referred to opening act the Eagles of Death Metal as the "Pigeons of Shit Metal". He then said, "I'm sorry to say that this will be their last night with us."

However, on December 2, 2006, Stinson posted a message: "As a matter of fact, Eagles of Death Metal were a suggestion of mine a while ago. Turns out they were the wrong band for our crowd. They were booed and did not play for as long as they were scheduled to. ... In the past I have thrown my bass. I have never thrown it at Axl or anyone else in the band nor has anyone thrown my bass back at me... yet. Axl has been a dear friend to me for nine years.

Year 2006 (MMVI) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


Bon Jovi

Rose has had a long time feud with the members of the rock band Bon Jovi, especially with the lead singer, Jon Bon Jovi. At a 1987 show opening for Alice Cooper, Rose said "Now last night, what happened was, five guys in suits decided in the Hyatt Regency Hotel that we were scumbags. They were right, we're scumbags but that don't mean we're gonna take their shit. So first off, this guy grabs me and calls me Bon Jovi. Bon Jovi can suck my dick. Second off he tried to hit me. That's when Steven cracked him in the head with his cast. And his words were 'You never try to hit one of the family.'" The audio of this speech is often referred to as Axl's Blues as the rest of the band play a blues jam as he speaks. [68][69] [70] Incidentally, Bon Jovi had planned to name their 1986 album Guns N' Roses after Jon read an article about the band in a newspaper.[71] Bon Jovi is a hard rock band originating from Sayreville, New Jersey. ...

In a 2006 interview, Jon Bon Jovi was critical of the public and media attention Rose received, despite not having released an album for years: "You know what pisses me off? I was reading this British rock magazine this month and there was a story about Axl Rose and the $13 million Guns N' Roses record that was never made. That motherfucker hasn't made a record in 13 years and he gets all that attention. You know what I've done in 13 years? A lot. But they have continued to write about the freak show aspect of him. Because he's a recluse. That makes him interesting, right?"[72] In addition, Bon Jovi keyboardist David Bryan publicly criticized Rose and his late arrivals at concerts in another 2006 interview. [73] David Bryan Rashbaum, better known as David Bryan (born 7 February 1962) is a musician and plays keyboards for Bon Jovi. ...

Axl Rose is Guns N Roses lead singer (365 words)
Rose felt that leaving Indiana was his only option so he took off in search of his friend Jeff (Izzy) Isbell, who had already left to seek fame and fortune in Hollywood.
Axl Rose is multi-talented with an extreme and powerful vocal range, piano skills, and has even recently taken up the guitar to add to his abilities.
Axl Rose also said he was working day and night on a new album to be called "Chinese Democracy".
An open letter to the fans from Axl Rose - MYGNRFORUM.COM (2005 words)
A spokesperson for Rose's label could not be reached for comment at press time to verify that the letter was from Rose or that the March release date had been penciled in.
Rose, who has often been content in the past to let others speculate as he stayed silent about the band and the album, was uncharacteristically chatty in the note, opening a door into some of the behind-the-scenes intrigue that has fueled the numerous delays in the release of Democracy.
Referring to a note he said he sent to Rose earlier this week in which he alluded to the "issues that exist been Axl and myself," Mercuriadis said he set out the March release date and album roll-out in much the same way as Rose does in his letter.
