Does anyone here think about how Axl was bringing mental health to the forefront in his UYI day interviews? I mean, back in the 90’s no one was talking about that stuff openly. He really poured himself out there and discussed shit that is now en Vogue. Woke is a silly ducking term, but Axl always did strike me as a conscious being, which are typically misunderstood.

I think too much is made of mental health these days.  There's a fuckin' acronym for every second fuckin' personality trait, its used to excuse fucked up behaviour way too much, everythings some kind of an illness and drawn back into like, mental health.  Its valid is many fuckin' ways I'm sure but I don't think you necessarily do anyone any favours by making such a fuckin' big deal of it, perhaps I'm cynical but I don't think there's that many noble people out there sticking their necks out for the poor sufferers of mental health issues, more often than not its to do with a person seeking the spotlight, oftentimes people who already have a great deal of attention. 

I hear this a lot with the boxer Tyson Fury, 'he's done so much for mental health!'...I love the man and everything but has he really?  These people all have something to sell you and the minute that is the case you should always question why that person is presenting you with 'x' narrative.  Personally I don't think there's nothing substantially wrong with Axl Rose, based on the limited information and knowledge of him I have.  Again, this is just an opinion, who knows, he might be totally batshit but I don't see it myself. 

More often than not, I find, people that have mental health issues don't make a massive song and dance about because their priority is getting through life and being normal, they don't want people to know about that shit and have themselves being judged differently or treated like they're a fuckin' retard.  They say Joey Ramone had OCD all his life, like crippling levels of it, to where as a kid doctors told his mother that he probably wouldn't be able to live a normal life, nobody ever heard about that shit though, not until after he died because, as I was saying, the man wanted to get on and live a normal life and that kinda thing is ones personal business. 

I'm immediately suspicious of people who are desperate to lay their lives on the operating table to be pored over like an opening wound by millions of gossip hungry 'fans', people that spend half their lives trying to make you understand them by telling you about every time their Dad gave em a clip round the earhole or whatever.  Fuck that shit. 

Sincere people want to forge ahead despite their handicapps and shortcomings, not making a big issue of them and end up being defined by them.

Oh man, reading this just gave me LCSD!

A conscious being? :question: Aren't we all conscious beings while we are alive? :lol:

Nah, I don't think Axl is anything special, neither misunderstood and much less "woke".

He has a huge ego, something that probably stems from his upbringing and the way his family functioned.

Coming out with the story of his life in magazines like Rolling Stone was probably more to do with a personal catharsis, in some ways to justify his bad behavior "look at me, cut me some slack, this is what you get when you abuse children." 

Too bad he sought support in dubious people, mediums and charlatans who took advantage of his fragile emotional state to suck up thousands of dollars from his pockets.

He is a little rock and roll Diva with a bitchy attitude.

 

When shit goes wrong for him its easy for him to blame his " Mental State "

 

Reminds me a bit of Only Fools And Horses Slow Bus To Chingford when Granddad is caught out not handing out the flyers .... " It wasn't me Dell it was me brain "

I do remember reading i music magazine years ago that had a story of the ramones, and joey hgave crippling OCD issues. It wasnt uncommon where they would be on tour and he woukd want to back to the last town to touch or check spmething. I beleive he also collected door knobs or handles as well.

I do tend to think mental health has alot of awareness with millenials because the ones i come across like to put a label on themselves.
