Does the fangirlism of Axl Rose ever turn you off from GN'R?

Given the recent threads, I think it would be a good time to make this thread.

I mean, am I really following an 80s hairband that happens to have a former pretty-boy for a singer? Am I basically a quasi-Ricky Martin or Backstreet Boys fan? I liked GN'R for the music but over the years I kind of feel shamed to even admit liking this band. You know, I like him as a singer. He has a cool voice, and I love the music he used to make but when some others describe their fanatical worshiping admiration for him, it's like they are on a different planet fawning unconditional love for him. At least, they are liking the band for a different than I was so it's almost like they like a different band. I'm not a female so I can't look at it from their persuasion anyway but does anyone else feel ashamed a little to admit they like the band publicly the same way they'd feel ashamed to admit they liked Poison or Winger?

I'll admit it. He is very good looking.

I actually think that's an awful picture of him.

Though it is quite prophetic, isn't it? :tongue2:

In regards to Slash, I read a desperate fan's message about, what if one of us were to die and looking back I had the possibility of a reunion now, blah blah blah. And my thoughts are, "Yeah, and while you're at the show your baby accidentally kicks a candle and burns your house down, killing himself and the rest of your family."

Man, I can't complain about that flashy visual aspect of Guns n' Roses. When I was a boy, like 15 years old, and girls were still GNR fanatics back then, I always knew how to take advantage of this. I was a very pretty boy, with long blonde hair, and there were this 5 girls who simply worshiped me because I was kind of an Axl-surrogate for their lives. Well, later they were a little bit disappointed when they discovered I hadn't super sized balls. But I figured out how to enjoy those days. So, no, I don't feel ashamed at all.

Yes

But i never felt myself ashamed, because i like GNR. The "fangirlism" also lame, but "neccesary" with this type of blockbuster bands, like GNR.

Old GNR became the biggest band in the world, and they died with that title. Nobody knocked them off the top, they did it themselves.

 

we were the left overs... the "hardcore" fans

No I love to be with my own kind.

I spent about an hour going through some Axl pictures with two males trying to pick out where he looked his best. We didn't agree on any of them! They picked out the worst ones.

I have the same taste as Miser. Miser can pick out great ones with Axl looking his best.

The only time I've felt awkward is at the shows when I was standing at DJ's side where there was loads of dj-fan-girls that were going over the top and I felt like I was at One Direction/Justin Bieber Concert. *shudders*

As for axl I don't think you need to worry about him being a hairband pretty boy these days Posted Image

So not true!
The concert in the Netherlands was visited actually by a lot of beautifull young woman, screaming for Axl! Really suprising actually.

I only see this on forums, and occassionaly some shows, and I think it's kind of funny, sometimes bordering on creepy because of his age now. Axl was never my type, he was way too feminine looking for my tastes. Majority of their fans are guys, you see it here and at the gigs. It's mostly for the music, but there's always the few scarey obsessive ones, like several of the posters here, who take their fandom way too seriously.

Girls were screaming for Axl at all the shows I have been to. The teenagers mostly scream for Dj, but in my experience women in their 20's scream for Axl quite a bit at the shows :)
