** In 2016, Axl, himself known for his misogynistic attitudes particularly during the classic era, lashed out at President-elect Creator/DonaldTrump and his administration, flat-out refusing to perform at Trump's inauguration. Among Axl's problems with the Trump administration are Trump's appointment of Jeff Sessions, known among civil rights groups for his racist views (in case people had any doubts about Axl's own views on race after the whole "One in a Million" controversy), and Trump demanding an apology from the ''Theater/{{Hamilton}}'' cast for their epic rebuke of VP-elect Mike Pence.

* EveryoneHasStandards[=/=]RoleEndingMisdemeanor: As Creator/DennisMiller once said about Steven, "What in the fuck do you have to do get kicked out of Guns n' Roses?" The answer: '''Extremely'''. Everyone in the band except for Axl was a junkie and/or alcoholic, but they were still able to keep it together on stage. Steven's abuse, however, was so extreme that it began to seriously mess with his playing ability, and eventually led to his being fired. He has struggled with his addictions ever since, and if you have seen him on ''Series/ThatMetalShow'', it is clear that he has been permanently damaged.

Needless to say, everyone ''except'' Steven Adler was quick to comply.

* MistakenForRacist: Possibly Axl, [[{{Troperiffic}} yet again]].

In recent years he's taken to calling out [[Music/{{Metallica}} James Hetfield]] on racial bias over dropping opening act Music/BodyCount, possibly passing the trope onward.

* WhyFandomCantHaveNiceThings: Axl has been known to threaten this on misbehaving fans.
** One time he ''did'' follow through on his threat, it didn't end well. Just ask the people of St. Louis.
** An early case of physical projectile-based abuse during a show in Argentina caused him to stop the show twice and threaten to go home if it persisted.
-->'''Axl''': ''[first time around, during "Nightrain"]'' We have some really fucking stupid people here tonight, who think that throwing stuff at the stage will relate into a better show! It won't happen that way, because we will fucking go home! Don't try me. Now, shall we continue, or shall we go home? OK.\\
'''Axl''': ''[second time around, during "You Could Be Mine"]'' Do you think...? ''[to the videographer]'' Camera on this fucker.\\
''[the camera zooms in on the stone Axl is holding while the interpreter offers a TactfulTranslation]''\\
'''Axl''': Do you think that this is funny? If you see somebody beside you throwing something, ''beat the fucking shit out of them!'' All they are going to do is ''rip every one of you off!'' If one of us gets hit by something like this, or if I see someone in the crowd get hit by someone... something like this, unfortunately the show will be over. We want to have a nice time tonight. We don't want anyone to get hurt--any of you, any of our crew, any of the people working the show, or ourselves. This... could hurt someone real fucking bad. This will be the last time I talk about this. We'll try one more time. Thank you.\\
'''Interpreter''': Somos amigos, no enemigos.\\
''[Axl gives the stone to a crewman]''\\
'''Axl''': ''[to the crewman]'' Save that.

** Apparently it's a new tradition on the current Chinese Democracy tour for audience members to infuriate Axl by throwing bottles and stuff at him. It's not a show without Axl yelling "STOP THE SHOW! STOP!"

** Apparently it's a new tradition on the current Chinese Democracy tour for audience members to infuriate Axl by throwing bottles and stuff at him. It's not a show without Axl yelling "STOP THE SHOW! STOP!"STOP!" It didn't start there, either--a show in Argentina during the Illusion era was interrupted twice by rowdy fans who threw stuff at the stage, and the second time around Axl encouraged fans to beat up anyone they catch trying that in the future.



* CrazyPrepared: The current lineup is just about prepared for ''anything'' that might happen. On tours, all the guitarists bring a back-up generator for their amplifiers and pedalboards, Axl brings a megaphone along with a few spare microphones... Suffice to say, they won't be bothered by a simple power outage. And simple things like rain, heat or malfunctioning guitars? Everyone brings spares. Plenty of spares. Bumblefoot even brings 2 spares of his double-neck, while Ashba was known to bring a spare for ''each of his guitars''. And then add the carbon-rod in all of Bumblefoot's guitars, which keeps the neck in place regardless of changing weather conditions... Oh, and they keep a spare piano, just in case there's trouble with the main one. They seem to be pretty much prepared for the worst.

This wasn't always the case, though--just ask the Bogotans who got treated to a healthy dose of irony at the end of "November Rain" during one show.
-->'''Axl''': Hope you brought your fucking umbrellas! ''[to the crew]'' We need some over that. ''[{{Beat}}]'' Opie, how's this setup for electrocution?\\
''[the crewmen scramble to protect the band's equipment from the rain]''\\
'''Axl''': Give us a few minutes to get our shit together. Do we got an interpreter? ''[{{Beat}}]'' Give me an interpreter.\\
''[an interpreter joins Axl onstage]''\\
'''Axl''': Ladies and gentlemen, this is Jose. All right, give us a few minutes to get our things together, but we're not going anywhere. We'll be right back.
