Yes.

I collect clothes Axl wears on stage.

I buy the same pair of pants and jeans he wears.

I also buy the same tshirts he wears on stage.

I dress just like Axl tonight all the way down to the same sneakers. I am the coolest looking person at the bar right now.

I also collect some tees Slash wears

Post a picture. I was an 80s Rocker once for a Halloween party in the late 90s. I still had long hair. I sprayed it up and wore a jean jacket vest with no shirt.

It’s funny Axl’s the first person mentioned. I was at Disneyland earlier this year for the first time in 15 years or so and wore a Mickey shirt that I’ve had for the last couple of years.

My friend asked if I bought it just for that occasion, and I said “No, now that I think about it Axl Rose used to wear a Mickey shirt sometimes and I’m sort of a poser so that’s probably why I thought to buy it.” She mocked me pretty hard, and I deserved it :D

I have the same Charles Manson shirt that Axl wears in the Estranged video, it was a hit when I wore it at a GnR show!

Guilty on the Axl thing, too. All era's. Even the look that was like a oversize white t-shirt, flannel tied around the waist with little red shorts. Yikes.

I had the Kill Your Idols, Hustler, and Eat the Worm t-shirts. Back in '92, I had a pair of double-sided Thin Lizzy Black Rose t-shirts airbrushed at the mall - one for me, one for Axl. Don't know if he ever got it. I was in a Guns N' Roses world. Fortunately, a lot of chick's were too.

I used to cop Jim Morrison’s ‘70s look… very intentionally so… and minus the bloat. Still think he’s one of the all time coolest.

Guy in high school and college thought he was Prince (without talent). 1999-era hair, goofy suede boots with pants tucked in them, scarves, trenchcoat. Then he dropped out of college and enlisted in the Marines. Fucker was retired in his 40s (now probably around 58ish).

Probably a Raspberry or Purple Beret.

Good one. Yes, he was in the Raspberry Berets. When it was warm, he didn't wear much more. Wait.... :mrgreen:

The last time I saw Axl (August 2021), he changed his t-shirt 7 times during that show. Are you changing your shirt every half hour?
He was also wearing snakeskin cowboy boots the whole night, no sneakers. But just outta curiosity, what kind of sneakers and what kind of jeans?

While I would like to know the answers to those questions, I'm really just teasing you.

Probably about 20 f****** years ago on a Tuesday at the baked potato, on a packed night for the Starfuckers Slash was jamming with zigzag and gilby. This guy walked in, early twenties ish, dressed as axl it his use your illusion Knocking on Heaven's Door outfit. Except he wasn't bare under his tan leather suede jacket with the arm fringe, he had a gnr shirt on. It was obvious he was cos playing. But he didn't quite nail the hat. Axls white cowboy hat, but the dudes hat looked like it was collapsible. Or like he had it in his pocket or something because it was all crushed. It was an attention getter Beyond the Axl thing, it just looked stupid. And as the guy walked past the stage, Teddy got a look at him and said bluntly "that is so gay!"
