What's even weirder is that his voice is very different to his "normal" deep speaking voice. Maybe he had botox done on the vocal chords too... :confused:

It's so funny because that sports guy didn't have any fricken idea what an impossible thing he just did there. But it went fine for everybody. Axl was all mellow and smiles and enjoying himself... still, you gotta giggle at the oddity of that actually happening. :xmasssanta: :rofl-lol:

Actually, this is AFTER rio, this is summer 2001.
It's interesting, Rio he had a lot of wieght on him and thick eyebrows, here he is thin and has none. Really makes you wonder if the summer 2001 tour was really cancelled because of buckethead being ill....

I cant find the pictures, but maybe someone here knows them, They are from the 2001 shows, where Axl is in his Blue suede jacket with sparkles etc. and his hair in a pony tail and a pale white face and real skinny... Some said he had Cancer... tried to find the pictures. but no luck. they are out there!

Just a wild guess, but after the Rio show, the entire internet EXPLODED with fat jokes ect. and he was mocked relentlessly. Maybe he took it to heart and stopped eating/went anorexic? That's my guess anyway. There's no WAY you could eat healthy and exercise THAT much weight away in that short of time.

And just for the record, the first REAL public appearance was in the summer of 2000, when he joined Gilby on stage where photos were taken. It predates the HOB and Rio shows.

That's because they're from the New year's eve shows a year later! There was one pre Rio show at the HOB in Vegas in Jan 2001 which we have pics and audio of. He wore the black dragon shirt, was chubby and had is mega-hair extensions/plugs in that he had at Rio. He didn't drop 5 stone in a few days!

These pics are from two shows at The Joint in Vegas a year later from which we have zero pics and audio, as far as i'm aware, which is really tragic. Because THIS is how I always envisaged Axl coming back. Yeah, a tad older, but lean, great hair, in the same amazing shape, cool jacket, rock star etc. He obviously took the criticism of his shape at Rio to heart and worked the fuck out to get in shape. Yet by the start of the 2002 shows 6 months later he'd chunked up a fair bit, had a bunch more surgery which made him look less natural then in these awesome pics, and got the braids, allegedly to hide botched hair treatments.

People always want the HOB concert released and I don't know why. He was out of shape and sang weak falsetto a la Rio. We may never know but from these pics i'd guess that he was on fire at the 2 Nevada shows.

I have lived and breathed Axl Rose's 'new' music every single week of my life since I got a bootleg of Rio 3 in January 2001. That is why I reserve the right in 2012 to be utterly pessimistic, butt-hurt, whiney, disillusioned, disappointed and down-right fucked off. "Basically, to me, it was because I am watching this guy and I don't understand it. I don't get it. I wanted the world to love and respect him. I just watched him throw it away.''Axl on Slash, 2000. Irony.

And he was normal wieght. The next time he was seen was in August 2002 at leeds festival.

So, beginning of 2001, he was fat, summer he was VERY thin, end of 2001 he was normal, 2002 he was thin.

It's always struck me as odd that he looks so different in that NBA interview. He's hardly recognizable, yet in 2006 he looked just like he should at 44. Braids of course, but his face looked like it hadn't aged since '94. Here, and in those blue jacket pictures, he just looks weird.

I think "thousand" is a bit low, I would aim more for ten thousand....
