Was Axl's voice already starting to become Mickey Mouse-ish in '93?




His voice sounds like it lacks a lot of the rasp and power it had just a year before in '92.

His voice in 1993 was the perfect mix of rasp and pitch.

i think the voice was killer, but a bit tired, it's one of the last Use Your Illusion Tour shows. Axl is a human and it's normal the voice was tired. 3 years of constant touring and recording .

It was "thinner" I guess. Moreso on the Sympathy track though...

Thinner is a good word. No doubt due to the hectic touring schedule. He was likely both tired and did a number on his voice.

I might be in the minority, but I thought Axl sounded pretty brutal in 1991. Sometimes it was awesome (like those early Perfect Crime performances) but other times it was all rasp and no control. 1992 his voiced evolved into a cleaner rasp (how's that for an oxymoron?) and then thinned out in 1993 as we see in these videos. Someone could make a great retrospective: The Many Voices of Axl Rose.

full power less rasp. One of the better vocal years...91 was just screaming without control.

1993 was my favorite year in terms of Axl's vocals, 1992 had some killer shows too.

I kind of wish they had kicked off the tour when they did Farm Aid, that civil war is probably one of the best live versions when it comes to Axl's vocals imo, he knocked it out of the park there.

The 1993 Argentina show was probably my favorite show from old GN'R.

Axl voice was very good at that show and the crowd was fantastic. Sucks though it was their last show together.

What? You're out of your mind. Axl sounds KILLER in those songs. Compared to some shows in 1991, yes he sounds more relaxed and his voice was "thinner" as other member said, but no, his voice is perfect in Argentina 1993.



Please compare this performance of 'You're Crazy' with the current performances and laugh your ass off. This is the Axl Rose I love.

In my opinion, best voice of Axl Rose was 1993. It was purely perfect.
