Axl Rose: Hungry Time Traveler

Who out there over the age of 25 has the courage to deny they liked Guns ‘n Roses when they were a kid? I’ll wait while you pretend you always liked good music, finally admitting you liked GnR and a bunch of other bands of the same horrible breed. I did and even though it is embarrassing I will admit it. I had Appetite for Destruction on cassette; I also had Lies on tape. When Use Your Illusion I & II arrived in stores I was in line at Spec’s for the midnight sale. I also bought those two on cassette.

Nowadays I loathe Guns ‘n Roses. Aside from a few righteous tracks on Appetite and maybe ‘You Could Be Mine,’ which I probably like because it was in Terminator II (seriously, didn’t John Connor and the kid from Diff’rent Strokes and Salute Your Shorts have any other tape?), GnR are terrible. Chinese Democracy was a disaster and the later incarnation featuring Buckethead on guitar was horrendous. In short, Guns ‘n Roses are best left in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s.

Until now.

Apparently, Axl Rose is a time travelling badass and the website Axl Rose: Hungry Time Traveler proves GnR’s front man isn’t chrononically challenged. In fact, he’s been eating all sorts of delicious treats throughout the ages. How? I am not sure but you can check out more about Axl’s adventures through time by clicking here.

    I still think GnR is awesome. But Chinese Democracy was not GnR. That was Axl Rose and while his vocals were important to GnR, Axl Rose alone is not GnR no matter how much he wishes it to be so. GnR is not GnR without the guitar playing of Slash, the songwriting of Izzy, etc. Maybe all the time traveling explains while Axl is so crazy?

       I think Axl’s Quantum Leaping is partially responsible for his psychosis. The rest is his exploration of past lives and beating women. We also shouldn’t forget his plastic surgery disasters.
