Guns N' Roses' Axl Rose: Now

Once a long-haired heartthrob who dated supermodels, Axl Rose (pictured in Hollywood on March 9) is now barely recognizable. The singer -- who has struggled with mental illness and legal issues since his teens –- withdrew from the public eye after Guns N' Roses broke up. Then in 2001, Rose shocked the world by announcing that he'd reformed the band with all new members (including musicians from Nine Inch Nails and The Replacements). Seven years later, Rose released the long-awaited Guns N' Roses album “Chinese Democracy”, to mixed reviews. In 2012, Rose (briefly rumored to be dating Lana Del Rey) refused to attend his original band's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
