You can tell he literally shows up at these first gigs and they are the first time singing the stuff since the last time he toured.
As you age you have to work harder at it, andhe clearly has zero desire to do that.
He is content to show up to the first shows of tours out of shape and unrehearsed, and sound like shit until he "plays his way into shape". It doesn't bother him that he is giving the fans of those first few shows a half assed performace.
What he does is like an athlete showing up to the first game of the season having not run a lap or thrown a ball since the last season. There is a reason they have a preseason, so you don't look like a mess when it counts.
In Axl's case the preseason would be rehearsing, getting in shape, and working with a vocal coach so the first show sounds roughly as good as the last. That however requires work you aren't getting paid for, and Axl would rather shit on fans for the first shows and get paid to work his way into shape.
We know he is terribly unprofessional so none of this is suprising, but his contempt for his fans is somewhat amazing considering the lengths some go to defend him.
If rehersal wasn't important the band themselves wouldn't bother with it, they do though because they know they would sound like shit otherwise.
It is no different for a singer, and we see that first hand when Axl shows up to a new tour unprepared like always.

I think the frustration is if he could do it such a short time ago, and can't do it now, it is for lack of preparation/dedication.
I think the word you are looking for about why he can't do it now is lazyness.

Axl's current voice is shit.

You can't be ugly and play hard to get. It just doesn't work that way. You're already hard to want!.

Another half step down would not sound too different
yes but GNR music was already downtuned from the recording to begin with. You cannot tune the guitars much lower than that without sounding bad.

Don Henley's got the rasp, but years ago he was blown away at how powerful Axl's voice was when they recorded together.
Janis is gone, but there IS someone who could sing like that - Tina Turner.
I don't know if Axl's losing the range and power, but 2-3 hour shows a night, and the time he puts into keeping his voice warmed up, he prob. should take better care of it.
David Lee Roth did credit weed and burgers for his rasp on the classic VH era in his "Crazy From the Heat" book though.

really sad as his strong rasp voice always was a significant factor for the GN'R sound. so actually he mostly is the weakest part in his own cover band right now musically/vocally.
