Guns N’ Roses front man Axl Rose hasn’t looked right since he had all that plastic surgery a few years back, but the 50 extra pounds he’s put on certainly aren’t helping anything. The Daily Mail says:

The 49-year-old singer was [sic] unrecognizable as he took to the stage at the Rock In Rio music festival, with his attempts to cover up his larger frame in a coat failing miserably.

Rose appeared to have gained a significant amount of weight in recent months, with his slim frame at the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards a distant memory.

The rocker teamed his yellow coat with a black hat and sunglasses, with the whole ensemble contributing to his bizarre appearance.

You know, I always wondered what Hank Williams, Jr. would look like without the beard. Thanks to this footage of Axl Rose, I don’t have to wonder anymore.

After showing up 90 minutes late to their performance in Dublin, Guns ‘n Roses were treated to a chorus of boos and fuck yous and then a couple of beer bottles were hurled on stage. That’s when Axl Rose — who offered no apology or explanation for the hour and half delay — got all pissy and said,

“Here’s the deal. One more bottle, we go home. It’s up to you. We would like to stay. You wanna us to stay? We wanna stay. We wanna have some fun. If you don’t wanna have fun, all you gotta do is let us know, and we got no problem… we’ll go on our way.”

That’s about the time some one chucked another bottle at him. What did he expect? When left to their own devices, the Irish drink and get angry. It’s pretty much their whole M.O. It’s just usually the wives and kids who take the brunt of the beatings.
