Axl Rose

Found on


William Bruce Rose Jr., better known as 'Axl Rose', is an American singer born on February 6, 1962, in Lafayette, Indiana. He Is the founder and lead singer of the hard rock band Guns N' Roses. He is a celebrated but controversial figure in the world of rock.


No one can cream and sing as high vocal as Axl Rose. I have compared him with all other greatest singers but no one can sing like him. He sings the most beautiful melodies with the most aggressive tones and the most outrageous, freakish range, " says Sebastian Bach. "There's maybe five people in the world that can sing in his range. " Slash once described the sound of Rose's voice in slightly different terms: It's like "the sound that a tape player makes when the cassette finally dies and the tape gets ripped out, " he said, "but in tune. " It's immediately identifiable, with a combination of brute force and subtlety that is easy to overlook amid the sonic assault of Guns n' Roses. Ballads like "Patience" and "November Rain" reveal a startling intimacy, even vulnerability, but it's his fearsome screech on full-throttle metal like "Welcome to the Jungle" that can still peel paint off the walls, more than 20 years later. So why is he not in number 1,

Axl Rose is without a doubt the greatest singer of all time for 10 reasons-

1. He has one of the most amazing vocal ranges in the world.
2. He was the lead singer and co-founder of GUNS N' ROSES!
3. He writes a d sings some of the most beautiful songs ever.
4. He is really fit.
5. His stage presence is awe inspiring.
6. He's a misunderstood genius.
7. He's my idol and he's changed my life forever.
8. He's better than all these pop singers.
9. He changed Rock n' Roll forever.
10. He is almost 50 and he's still going, I don't care what anyone says I still think he's great.

Talking about great singers, we have a lot celin dion is an awesome singer michael jackson is god elvis is awesome lou reed is a king demis is a tresor... We can name hundreds.. But I'm gonna talk about the perfect singer who is no other than Axel Rose, can anybody in the world show me a singer who can sing notes this high and sing soprano opera and sing heavy metal and growl? This guy is a singing God, can anybody take this much drugs and this much alcohol and sing like this? I'm not saying its a good thing being on drugs and alcohol I'm just saying that how in the world can he keep on singing? And don't complain about me calling him a God I don't mean "God" but I couldn't find a word that could fit him better that's all I have to say is anybody disagrees I may ask you write a comment down here

Slash is an amazing singer! Guns n' Roses is one of the best if not the best Hard Rock bands ever and it wouldn't be like that if it wasn't for Axl's voice! His voice is wild and soft at the same time... if we take November Rain, Estranged and Don't Cry for example his voice is so pacific but when it comes to rocking it hard like in Welcome to the Jungle and most of the GNR's songs he is a beast singing! He deserves to be in the top 10 to say the least!

Axl rose this man who came from the small town of Indiana with the dream of being a recognized rocker. He fought, suffered, did everything he could and finally he reached the sky.
His voice is unique, his vocal range is unmatched, his style is unmistakable. To see him on stage is something magical... He has the ability to write songs that move the deepest emotions in people's souls... Love, anger, hate, everything can be expressed from his heart... In the most truthful way. He had inspired man people around the world... He is the best...

One of the greatest rock vocalists still alive today. His performances are full of energy and his vocals are raw and powerful and un-matched by any other.

To this day when we think of greats like Welcome to the Jungle and Sweet Child his howling voice still echos in our minds nearly 25 years later.

Axl Rose the best! Everyone knows axl would've been UNSTOPPABLE but for the break up of his band who didn't want to go further as he did. He also went out of his way to avoid big press, but Guns N' Roses still is a band chosen by the people, no props! A rare gem

He is Crazy!
He is amazing!
He is Number one!
He is Best singer!

Axl's head and chest voice leaps and bounds over most people who have been classically trained, with a huge range, near perfect vibrato, and lyrics that actually make sense, I don't understand how he is only 42. Maybe not in the top 15, cause he does tend to sound whiny, but definitely not below John Bon Jovi.

In Rock Music Axl is number 1 on range alone with Chinese Democracy he hit 7 or 8 Octaves. Even Freddie Mercury who is one of my all time favorites can't compare to that. On the other side Axl is all kinds of a jerk but this about his singing abilities not his inter personal relations. To compare Kurt to Axl is a joke Kurt was horrible live and his songs usually didn't make any sense and he was a even bigger jerk then Axl. Sweet Child of mine is and probably always will be my number 1 song tied with Purple Rain by Prince.

He is the best ever! His voice is amazing! No matter his age and the time, he will always be the best singer! I don't care about the bad things people say about Axl, he is the best and there is no one better then him! Besides a great singer he is a nice person.

Axl, you need to know that Brazil loves you! And we want you back with Guns N' Roses in Rock In Rio 2013! Please come back!

Singer, Showman, Icon, Legend... This is only embodied by W. Axl Rose. The Last True Rock Star. You can Use Your Illusions to convince me otherwise, go and feed your Appetite for Democratic Lies. Spaghetti? More like Humble Pie. Pass it around the table to each N' every frontman going these days. Learn from the master, Witness why there is no one any better--

WOW! It's a sad day when I came here and seen AXL at 30, but I suppose its just the wrong people coming here to vote, AXL should be at least top 3, Actually no wait #1 he's a god and a legend!

There are bad singers like me, there are hobby singers like many girls, there are good singers like most of the youth bands, there are very good singers like Myles Kennedy, there are perfect singers like Aretha Franklin, but then there is Axl. God of interpretation, god of show, powerful, feeling. You'll never hear his voice twice. Shame of this page that he isn't at least at the Top 5.

Whatt? 19? Axl should at least be in the top three although he is my number 1. Trust me iv been a heavy metal freak for 15 years and I have never heard a voice so powerful, beautiful and skilled and never seen a presence so out of the world. The way he moves on stage is kick ass! And myles kenedy is above axl? I'm a huge myles and AB fan but I just heard the recent myles covers of Guns N' Roses songs and he worked his butt off to hit the high notes and when he did hit em it still sounded quite bad. Axl made the songs and he sang them effortlessly while jumping on and off the stage. Myles is extraordinary but there just not in the same league.

I can't believe that some people on this list are "artists" that "sing" pop music today. How can you compare Adele or some other auto-tuned freak to the great Axl Rose? I'm so amazed he's not farther up on this list... whenever I try to replicate his unique voice and meaningful songs, I end up failing miserably and thinking, "How does he do that? "
Yup. He's pretty much the equivalent of a rock god, and one of my personal favourite singers. A long, long time later, and he's still got it.

Axl Rose is true legend. His style is awesome, beautiful piano compositions like "November Rain", "Estranged", "This I love" are great. His own lyrics have passed through his soul, so sometimes it makes me cry. He has a hard fate in his private life. And I can understand him. Also, there are a lot of people, who think that he is stupid ahole, but they're wrong.

Axl is the best singer in this planet.
I always read different things about his life because I love his voice and his songs, day by day I need listening to Guns N' Roses. Finally, I want to say that I love the Chinese Democracy album and the actual band. Guns N' Roses is my life and please, stand by me all my life.

I totally agree with you! I love them, always... May God bless you and them...

Axl Rose is easily the greatest singer of all time. Name one singer who can go from singing in a soft, soothing voice and seconds later scream at the top of his lungs. What makes him special is the fact that when he screamed, he was also singing. When you really think about it nobody else has ever been able to do that. The man also has a beautiful voice.

He is the best to all.
Axl is th greatest vocalist of all time. No comparison with Axl Rose.
His "November rain", "Sweet childhood mine", "Patience" with Slash is my favorite song which I always enjoy in my entire life.

No words n doubts! AXL ROSE is the greatest singer n frontman ever! It's just to many people that don't want to admit n realise about it, that's why he's still not in the top 10 list! Come on people it's just no doubt anymore his name always in the list of any greatest singer forums! Still can't open your eyes n ears about the truth how greatest he is? GOD!

This gives me an inspiration... shouldn't Amy Rose from Sonic & Axel Chains from Your Favorite Martian become best friends forever? Yep, it would be as perfect as everything about Axl Rose. I bet that's where Maker Studios got the name "Axel' from. Axl Rose & the main antagonist of Kingdom Hearts (the best gaming franchise ever besides Super Smash Bros. , Pac-Man & Sega Superstars).

Axl's voice can reach higher notes than Beyonce and Tina Turner. They can reach lower than... uh, most metal voices. Paul McCartney? I can't find one. Just hear Ain't it Fun. In my opinion, Axl SHOULD BE AT LEAST IN THE TOP TENS. WHY IS KATIE PERRY ABOVE HIM. HOW. I understand, Paul, I definitely understand MJ and Freddie, but come on. Why Katie Perry? She's good, but after a while she gets boring. Axl's voice is like rough sandpaper scraping against rock, but with tons of different notes. This is the original Hard Rock voice.

Best because he is the most original, innovative, charismatic, and generally "cool" singer. Great range and just an incredible sound to his voice. Sings in different styles and voices, and is never less than electrifying.

Not only has he got the greatest vocal range of all male vocalists of our era; He produces a diversion of sounds that is unprecedented. Never in the history of music has anybody been able to voice so many different emotions with so much intensity, yet with an emotional depth that one feels from head to toe and right back
