I think I know what you mean.  It's like the Village People; the native American dude and the construction worker were great but they couldn't have survived without the motorcycle cop. That guy was the heart and soul of the group. 

Let's not get carried away here. I mean they are iconic and talented group of artists, but they are not Village People. Those guys are in the league of their own.

 I have no idea why I thought of the Village People but I just ran with it.😄

Somehow they’re the cartoon version of the different characters in GnR 85-91. I totally get you. I’m serious. Question is. Who’s who.

That is a great question, lol. I guess Axl would be mr. Motorcycle cop because he used to wear that weird looking cap(the Ritz in '88)

Duff could be the cowboy. He has worn a cowboy hat.

His entire head does not match his body.  Very weird picture.

I think that picture is fake.

Are the guys from the second photo from Indiana?. 

The guy in the middle in the second pic is Critter (record engineer who worked on CD). He joined the CD project in 1999, which dates that photograph and the other two to 1999, likely October.

Axl, March 1994

I have personally contacted the source of this photo - the guy on the left of the photo. He said the guy in the middle is Critter - Critter didn't enter Axl's circle until 1999. I think people like to think it's 1995 but if you compare how Axl looks with pictures which are certain to be from 1995 (the Beta pic and Sante pic, for example, are 100% from 1995, as is the b/w pic from December 1995**) you can see his face is a little fuller and a little more aged, whereas in 1995, Axl looks like UYI Axl, just with shorter (but still long) hair and if anything, a little gaunt in the face. The pic with Critter perfectly fits the December 1999 RS description of Axl - a little fuller than the UYI days but not fat, with a head of hair roughly the length of Prince Valiant's (because he was in the process of growing it back from having it be very short).

Also, he has the same or a very similar white bandana in the pictures from that Halloween party in 1999 as he does in the pic we just got from July '98 whereas in earlier pictures he was wearing different colored bandanas.

**The Beta birthday photo came from Fernando's IG and he said it was 1995. The picture of Axl with Sante's kid has to be from 1995 as the kid was born in 1994 and he looks around at most a year and a half old. The December 1995 pic with a fan comes from a December 1995 issue of Metal Edge - the fan sent the photo into the magazine and from what I recall said it had been taken that month in Santa Monica.

Funny how 1994 Axl is wearing exactly the same outfit he wore for 2002 VMAs, must have liked it, and 1996 Axl is badass.

That tattooing pic must be rare af (alhough less so now).

Axl really likes bandanas huh?

Mar ‘94 is my favorite, thanks for posting Fashionista.

Beta's birthday cake kicks ass.  Love Axl's sly look, like he's saying "I can't wait to chow down on this sucker".

I love the last photo. Thanks @FashionistaI love seeing objects in pictures. Is that a black poodle or stuffed animal that Axl has a hold of? I can't make it out. Also I love the small jack-o-lantern cut out behind Axl. Someone must have spent time deciding where to put it and thought underneath the light was the perfect place. 🤗

By the way I have a theory about why Axl's hair looked thicker in 2001:

As you can see in the October 1999/2000 photo, his hair was not even shoulder length yet. (Nu)GNR played their first show on January 1st, 2000. Is it possible that he wore a wig in 2001, not to conceal baldness, but to simply make his hair look longer and go with how the public remembered him since he was officially resurfacing?

An example of this is Mick Jagger is wearing a wig at the Hyde Park concert in July 1969 because he had cut his hair short for a movie role, but as "Mick Jagger, singer of the Rolling Stones" he couldn't be on stage with short hair in 1969.

Wow, I didn't know that about Jagger, cool tidbit there.
