Yeah, seems to be Izzys Black Beauty? And an Axl style headscarf.

This pic actually came up not too long ago on here and someone knew the answer and others concurred. IIRC they said that it was a guy from the bootleg record company. That he featured a pic of himself on every bootleg he released. As a running joke.

But I cant remember who it is. And I cant remember who knew - actually I wouldve figured it was one of you who already responded about it! Who else has all the Guns knowledge? I just rolled out of bed, so hopefully it comes to me.

@NeonKinight was it you who knew about the guy on the bootleg LP pictures above? Sorry to put you on the spot so randomly! :)

@soon maybe Ludirigan? He is really knowledgeable about GnR bootlegs. 

Yeah, that sounds right too! @ludurigan @zombux @Gordon Comstock are all kinda ringing a bell. Theres so many super knowledgeable people, but these 4 names keep coming to mind about this picture, lol.

(any of you know who's in the picture on the LP posted above?)

An alternate but semi-related subject that you examined once was in what you entitled, "The True Story Behind Rapidfire! Axl Rose's First Recordings!" 

I am a fan of Rapidfire. Saw its website years ago, hoped for the recordings to be released for forever, it seemed, and I've followed their Facebook page for years since before Kevin Lawrence died. I chatted with him many times on there, too, and he was totally cool and told me stories, etc, and he also shared his lawyer's long explanatory paper (you said, "essay," and that is more appropriate, I'll admit) about the band and its then legal situation, so I learned a ton, I feel, about Kevin's band and his experiences with Axl. 

Dear ol' Kevin :cry:, I miss him because I used to talk to him over Facebook for long long hours at night, when he was feeling sad and me too.

What you say it is correct, he's told me the same things and many other stories.... he was really cool guy, even when I was an asshole sometimes, lol....

It's mentioned on here, by you :lol:

Oh right :lol:

And then it was @Nikki_Sixx who had some great info about it!!! Its below on that same page.

My memory was a bit off as I suspected, but the info Sixx provided about that picture is really great! :headbang:

How did he die?  I read some articles about his death but they didn't specify the cause.

Ok, thanks, I was just curious.  He seemed like a good guy.

Yes, though I think he was in a depressive phase a few months before he passed away :unsure:

Dead & short-lived Ole Bach has way more dignity, contribution and influence in the band than Paul Huge, Chris Pitman and DJ Ashba all together!

How do you come to this conclusion? Which songs did he play in his only show?

Ole is most probably responsible for Bill Baileys choice to call himself Axl, since Ole's father was named Aksel. But thats it.

And that alone contributes more compared to Paul Huge who had ruined the old band.

Ole didn't play any shows with the band and "Axl" came from a band Axl was in, the name originated with Axl's Indiana friends and Izzy suggested Axl should adopt the name for himself.

I thought the Indiana band both Axl and Izzy were in was called Axl and when the band broke up Axl decided to continue to use the name for himself. Something along those lines.

I've always wondered how they came up with the band name Axl. Is it in reference to someone/something or do the letters stand for anything... Anybody knows?
