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.

What's one of the most regretful things you can buy a 6-year-old boy? A drum set of course! If you don't have a soundproof basement, listening to a 6-year-old pound away at a full drum kit can be one of the most harrowing experiences of anyone's life. Well, unless you're the parents of this kid!
Leave it to Kiss to bring four diverse rockers together for a new project. Guns N’ Roses guitarist Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal and Pantera and Kill Devil Hill bassist Rex Brown are just two of the members of the new all-star Kiss tribute band A.L.I.V.E.!. A.L.I.V.E.! also features former Whitesnake drummer Brian Tichy, and Kill Devil Hill guitarist Mark Zavon. The foursome are calling their new collaboration A.L.I.V.E.! a true tribute to ‘70s era Kiss.
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.
Guns N' Roses' 'Appetite for Destruction' is deserving of its top spot in the 25 Hard Rock Debut Albums of all-time, as the disc yielded three of the top rock anthems of all-time -- 'Welcome to the Jungle,' 'Sweet Child O' Mine' and 'Paradise City.' All three songs have garnered endless radio play, are still heard at sporting events and feature some of the most memorable licks in rock history.
