Axl Rose was a good-looking guy and now he looks strangely plastic.
When you look at him today you have to think to yourself “oh no.” Poor Axl, he really fell off the cliff, from such stardom to an odd sideshow act. As far as his face goes it’s an unnamable something that was stretched one way or another with the end result being a big negative. You don’t see any glaring differences, rumors are the skin around his eyes, face lift, cheek implants and chemical peel. In this case it’s not that any drastic mistake was made, it’s the sum of subtle changes that don’t add up. The worst might be the chemical peel that left his skin looking… well, it looks peeled. We don’t imagine he is going to fess up to any of this.
Combine that with his never good but always getting worse sense of style, and the tweaked, tense look he always seems to have on his face in photos and what do you have? You have a Hollywood image implosion! Oh and add to the mix his strange erratic behavior but that almost doesn’t count because rock stars are allowed that. But Axl was a star and no longer is a star so that free pass is losing its validity. Shoulda stayed outa the jungle baby. Kudos for the music though, it did rock.
