Chicago Sun-Times: AXL ROSE Close To Checking Himself Into Psychiatric Clinic - Dec. 11, 2002

 The cancellation of the first GUNS 'N ROSES tour in nearly a decade is directly due to lead singer Axl Rose's increasingly bizarre behavior, according to Chicago Sun-Times columnist Bill Zwecker. "Always an eccentric in the admittedly wild world of rock music, Rose has close friends and associates extremely concerned over his mental state during the last couple of months," Bill writes in his column published today. "The singer himself has openly admitted he's battling inner demons. ''I managed to get enough of myself together to do this,' the New York Post quotes Rose as telling a Madison Square Garden concert crowd last week.

"Sources say Rose is very close to checking himself into a psychiatric clinic to deal with 'exhaustion' and a number of other emotional problems. Famous for his outrageousness, the aging rocker lately 'has been even more whacked than usual,' a longtime pal tells this column.

"For this tour, Rose even traveled with his own psychiatrist, whose major responsibility apparently was convincing him it was important for his mental health to get onstage nightly and perform.

"Obviously that didn't work Friday, when Rose refused to appear for a Philadelphia gig — effectively ending the tour."

People always talk about how people in the spotlight (stars) like Axl have no right to complain because they have "everything." That's basically shit, no matter how much money you have you can still have problems. In Axl's case money can't buy him love, Stephanie really fucked him up, and where family is important to most "mere mortals" Axl's family life is fucked up, adopted, his real father dead, and an abusive childhood. Personally I fully understand why he's the way he is
