It's a good thing Van Halen kicked him out of the band. That album (Van Halen III) was absolutely terrible.

He's going to hell.

By far the creepiest rocker of all time.

He raped very young women and was found with CHILD porn. Wait... Does this mean?
Possibly I guess.
(Just kidding. ) - MontyPython

I don't get it. How is he disturbing? - RiverVibeZ

I actually like Axl. Sure he has anger issues, but I still like him. And half of the stuff he got mad at wasn't his fault, well except that moment when he jumped off the stage to attack a guy with a video camera. But remember that time when somebody kept tossing bottles upstage? I'd be pretty pissed too! But anyway, Axl's riot against his fans can often be a little too over the top, and it can get dangerous. So... That's all I really have to say about him. I like him but those riots... Ugh. - MontyPython

Her voice is bad and he is so stupid and annoying.

I hate you Monty Python
