* DoNotCallMePaul: Axl would rather you not call him Bill, as he had legally changed his name from William Bailey to W. Axl Rose in 1986. Likewise, we don't think Izzy Stradlin would like it if you call him Jeff, as in Jeffrey Isbell.
** Subverted by Duff [=McKagan=], who was born Michael, but never went by his given name -- he's been known as Duff since early childhood.

** Averted by Axl when he got older, scruffier, and tubbier.



* FatBastard: Axl during his later years. There is a bunch of memes with GNR songs with food in the lyrics.

* GeniusBruiser: Duff stands 6'3" and took up martial arts training after getting sober in the mid-'90s. He also was, by most accounts, a good student as a Seattle schoolboy, and very passionate in his attempts to get a college degree following his exit from the band.



* GTARadio: Axl is the DJ of the classic rock station in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas''.

** SingingVoiceDissonance: He speaks in a deep voice (used in songs such as "Mr. Brownstone"), but his most common singing voice is that screech Slash compared to "the sound that a tape player makes when the cassette finally dies and the tape gets ripped out, but in tune."

Axl's comparatively low speaking voice can also be heard toward the end of "Civil War'".

In another downright unexpected announcement given how troubled things got, in early 2016 it was announced Slash was returning to the band, bringing Duff along! This "reunion" of sorts will perform in April, being one of the first acts in Las Vegas' new arena before a headlining gig at Coachella.

** As of August 2015, Slash and Axl have seemed to bury the hatchet, with Slash saying that "It was probably way overdue." Needless to say, rumors of an original lineup reunion have been running full force ever since, as the relationship between those two was the only thing keeping a reunion from conceivably happening (as everyone was cool with everyone else). Steven commented on Eddie Trunk's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=waM0iqEFDZQ September 28th 2015 radio show]] that no one had said anything to him yet about a reunion, but was confident that if there was one they wouldn't dump him for Matt Sorum (he stated that he and Matt had actually discussed this. Not only would Matt not play if Steven was left out, but Steven would be fine with Matt taking part so long as they both played only the material they recorded).

Eventually only Slash and Duff came back, as this drummer conundrum plus Izzy's disappearance made a full-fledged reunion hard to achieve.

** 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 tramuatic 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)
** JerkWithAHeartofGold: Also while Steven, Slash and Duff did criticize Axl in their autobiographies, they also had plenty of good things to say about him(I.E. Axl took time off to visit Steven and Duff in the hospital, he even missed out on being in the movie "the Dead Pool" to see the former) and do defend him at some points, Slash in particular says that has a big problem with people who don't know Axl criticizing him.
