Axl Rose, the lead singer and only original member of the hard rock band Guns N’ Roses, has been named one of the all time greatest singers by Rolling Stone Magazine and NME. In 2012, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Because of differences with the original members, Rose refused to attend the ceremony stating he doesn’t want to appear anywhere he is “not wanted or respected”. This didn’t appear to affect the other original members, Slash, Duff, and Steve Adler from attending. They replaced Rose with new singer Myles Kennedy.
Axl Rose, lead vocalist of the hard rock bank Guns N’ Roses, made the #11 spot in Hit Parader‘s Top Male Vocalists of All Time, #64 of Rolling Stone‘s Greatest Singers of All Time, #4 in Roadrunner’s Best Frontmen in Metal History, and, in 2010, #1 greatest lead singer of all time by Musicradar. Many of his songs, such as Welcome to the Jungle, Sweet Child O’ Mine, Paradise City, and Nightrain, have been used in the soundtrack of films. Although the band is still performing, Axl Rose is the only remaining original member.
