Last month, Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie and her actor husband Josh Duhamel announced that they had named their son Axl. It's not a very common name, and Fergie has said she's a big Guns N’ Roses fan, meaning the kid was likely named after Axl Rose. This week, TMZ caught up with Slash and asked him his thoughts on the name (watch video above).

Fans never quite know what they're gonna get with a Guns N' Roses gig, and when the setting is a bowling alley / rock club in Brooklyn, N.Y., there's truly no telling what could happen. On Thursday night (June 6), Axl Rose and company rolled (pun intended) into the Brooklyn Bowl and scored big with the fans who were lucky enough to attend such an intimate GN'R gig.
We've got a fascinating new listen to share with you, even though it's 30 years old. Before Axl Rose picked up the microphone to lead Guns N' Roses, the singer fronted a band called Rapidfire in the early '80s, and believe it or not, Axl sounded like a mix between Rob Halford, Ozzy Osbourne and Glenn Danzig.
An Australian Guns N' Roses fan who had his teeth shattered at the band's recent Perth gig is in the process of taking legal action after he was injured when Axl Rose apparently tossed his cordless microphone into the crowd. The mic hit fan Darren Wright in the face and caused approximately $5000 worth of damage.
There have been plenty of offers over the years, but Axl Rose has stuck to his "guns," pun intended, and has resisted the lure of a big payday to reunite with the classic lineup of Guns N' Roses. In a new interview with Adelaide Now, the GN'R singer says he's been thankful for the support shown to him by the fans over the years and he shares his thoughts on the idea of bands, his included, reuniting.
