Type in “Axl Rose Fat” in search engines and these photos of Axl looking like the late Sam Kinison pop up.
The photos were taken at the first tour stop to kick off (The New) Guns N’ Roses Chinese Democracy Tour on January 13, 2010 in Winnipeg, Canada at the MB MTS Centre. Clearly, Axl had put on a few pounds from his early GN’R days but I think the photos were either taken at some bad angles or manipulated to make him look fatter then he really was.
Here are a few more photos taken at the same concert where he clearly does not look so fat.
I wouldn’t call Axl “Fat Elvis” yet, I mean who hasn’t put on a few pounds since the release of “Appetite For Destruction”???
