His look. It's embarrassing to see someone iconic for being skinny pack on the weight. And those hats and that ridiculous mustache make him look like he's in the Allman Brothers Band rather than GNR.

If he lost a little weight, had his UYI haircut and re-grew his beard to conceal his neck, I think the majority of jokes about his appearance would stop.

Yes, because he is so fat:

Yeah, you're right. He's as lanky as he was in the Sweet Child video.

He's not obese by any stretch of the imagination. But in most people's minds he's supposed to be a 130lb guy.

It shouldn't matter, but it does to most people. It makes him the target of a lot of jokes, which makes it harder for people to take the current incarnation of the band seriously.

He's about to do a network television interview, and instead of it bringing attention to the residency or the fact that he shows up on time now, sings his ass off and plays for three hours every night, the only thing anyone is going to take away from it is a bunch of screen caps from the show with corny jokes plastered on them like "Welcome to the jungle, we've got tons of cake" or "He's been dancing with Mr. Coldstone".

And that sucks.

I never said that. What I implied is that it is silly to expect Axl to look as he did 20 years ago. He looks pretty much average now for a 50 year old.

And what exactly do you want Axl to do with that? Should he loose weight just because of morons who can't accept the fact that he is pretty much average weight and chooses to focus on his looks rather on his music? That's insane. Axl does the exactly right thing about this situation: he ignores the haters with their ridiculous expectations and focuses on the live shows.

The only thing I'd change was a little more focus on working on the next record than touring. But it could very well be that touring is a prerequisite to releasing new music. As for the rest on that list: I couldn't care less.

I don't like the mustache though, when he's wearing the big white hat he reminde me of

He's not as skinny as he used to be and prob. has some stubborn weight where he doesn't want to perform shirtless on stage in his 50s. Just because Van Halen did it...
