Appetite for Destruction ...

For those of you too young to remember Nancy Reagan's Just Say No campaign from the 80's, I submit for your approval:

Axl Rose was arrested early Tuesday after allegedly biting a security guard in the leg at his hotel, police said.

Police spokeswoman, Towe Hagg, told The Associated Press that Rose was drunk during the confrontation and was not questioned by police until he had sobered up. “He was deemed too intoxicated to be questioned right away,” she said.

It was unclear what caused the fight, but Swedish tabloids said the guard tried to intervene when Rose started arguing with a woman in the hotel lobby.

There are a lot of valuable life lessons that could be gleaned from this story ... but since a picture is worth a thousand words ...

    I thought the point of before and after pics like that is to use a really hot pic as the first one, then an ugly pic as the second one?

    How come then you used two pictures of an ugly guy? Ugly Young and Ugly Old :P

    Although... I do like his belt...


  2. LOL ... okay, granted Axl wasn't ever a candidate for an Abercrombie and Fitch catalog ... but common ... he used to look somewhat hot ... now he looks like some sort of wax figure from Madame Tussaud's.

    I understand where you're coming from, though. When I was growing up, Mom thought Elvis Presley was touched by the hand of God. I, on the other hand, thought he was a tub of goo.

    So, you think Axl Rose and Jon Bon Jovi are repugnant ... I suppose it's to be expected. For what it's worth, I don't get what you guys see in Orlando Bloom. Unless he's got that blonde wig and those blue contacts ... in which case I'm totally onboard.

    The good news? All generations come together in their love of Johnny Depp ...

  3. Please make the bad man stop!

  4. I'm not sure if by "the bad man" you mean Axl Rose ... or his plastic surgeon ... but either choice would fit.

    I was an enormous fan in the "Appetite" days ... but lost my taste for his antics at the St. Louis "riot". I paid over $60 for my ticket (which was a lot in those days) ... waited over an hour for his late ass to show up ... only to have him sing three songs and storm off the stage.

    I read articles like that and wonder ... when will he get his shit together ... then I remember that I no longer care.
