This "reunion" of sorts performed in April, being one of the first acts in Las Vegas' new arena before a headlining gig at Coachella. Also, Axl Rose was chosen to sing in {{Music/ACDC}} as Brian Johnson's replacement (he had to leave due to hearing problems.

** JerkAssWoobie: Though in all fairness, he did have a horrible childhood as he was sexually assaulted by his stepfather at a very young age (Axl mentioned in a 1993 interview that the traumatic experience caused him to stop aging emotionally, remarking that "when people say Axl sounds like a screaming two-year old, they're right") and much of his behavior stemmed from being manic-depressive (something which you often have no control over).

* MistakenForRacist: Possibly Axl, [[{{Troperiffic}} yet again]]. [[NeverLiveItDown It seems he can't live down]] "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9B7hgSztA0 One In A Million]]" from ''Lies'', whose lyrics were...[[{{Understatement}} somewhat]] [[PoliticallyIncorrectHero controversial.]] Whether or not to believe his claims that the song was written "in character" or that he was calling out [[StopBeingStereotypical specific people who tried to hustle him on the LA streets]] is an exercise for the reader ([[ButNotTooBlack Slash's]] silence doesn't help). In recent years he's taken to calling out [[Music/{{Metallica}} James Hetfield]] over dropping opening act Music/BodyCount over racial bias, possibly passing the trope onward.
