I always likened Axl to Dickinson. Not so much now....Dickinson looks great. So does Springsteen....both older than Axl. Axl just doesn't have the genes. He has the small town farm boy genes....gets the "big face/jowel" and the gut.

Bad genes or not, I'm fairly confident he'd look better if he hadn't had work done. The anti-ageing procedures very, very rarely work the way they're intended. People who age terribly (but naturally) almost always wind up looking better than the botox brigade.

He didn't have work done. He just got fat.

Agree- I used to be on the 'he had work done' camp. Now I agree- he couldn't push the fork away or mix in a salad...too many donuts.

Now in 2006 he looked pretty much the same as 1994 and 1991 and was thinner...and in 2012 (bottom pic) he looks pretty much the same as 2006 except for a sagging jawline...That pins it down to...no, not surgery....Just too many roast lamb sandwiches and square melons

You're using that picture to argue against the idea he's had work done!?

He definitely looks morphed in the early 2000's but I don't really care.

If he had work done look out- another lengthy lawsuit coming.

I think the OP's theory is complete BS. I've always thought the opposite. If anything, musicians live lives with the least amount of stress. No reason to get lines or grey hairs. Look at Joe Perry at 61, he's only shown a little bit of grey in recent years. I'm in my 20s and I got grey hair.

The best example is Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth (the word Youth in the band name is just a coincidence).

Yeah....? It's an odd picture taken at an odd angle, but it matches up well with a similar picture from this year.
Also, ever considered video quality with regard to the basketball game? Even the guy who is interviewing him looks slightly blurred, his features. Everything in the video is softened a bit, it has to do with both the age of the video, the fact that it was compressed when uploaded to youtube, and the original quality of the video.
Like here:


The video isn't as sharp as a photo, or even real life, would be....

He's got fewer lines and wrinkles there than he had in 1993!?!

Well, he was 32 then! The fact that his skin looks smoother two decades later sort of supports the 'work done' theory.

He doesn't have fewer though...About the same.....
Also, it actually doesn't support the "work done" theory, Angelica. Everyone ages differently, for one. Secondly, everything can effect the way someone looks in a photo, lighting, the camera used, settings, etc...I've had pictures taken where I look like I have wrinkles here or there...and then adjusted the setting and done the same expression and looked more wrinkled, or less...Now picture that with all different kinds of cameras snapping pictures over a near 30 year period, using all different settings, in all different lighting and you're gonna get a lot of different looks...There's some pictures from say 1988 where Axl looks totally different than he did in 1993, and others from the same period where he looks the same. Not only that, take into account skin care, lifestyle changes, less stress, differences in diet, weight changes, etc...In 1993 Axl was either on or had just come off a massive and stress filled 2 and a half year tour, that's something significant to take into account. The pictures I've seen of Axl from 1995 and 1996 he looks much less wrinkled.

It's also not unusual for some people to just not wrinkle as much as others. I have a brother in law who's 43 and looks exactly the same as he did when he was 20, no wrinkles...And my mother looked the same at 38 as she did at 18, not a single line, and her father at 52 looked almost exactly the same as age 29 except fatter...None of them had plastic surgery or work.
