Axl Rose is UNRECOGNIZABLE and buff at 60 as he sports new look with Guns N' Roses in Singapore

SINGAPORE: Axl Rose has been a rockstar since the mid-'80s, and he looks nothing like his earlier self. The Guns N' Roses frontman turned heads as he stormed the stage at Singapore's National Stadium as part of the band's latest tour.
Axl, whose real name is William Bruce Rose Jr, wore a black graphic t-shirt and a pair of ripped jeans as he performed alongside his longtime guitarist, Slash. The vocalist's golden tresses from his glory days had been replaced with a standard haircut, and his signature bandana was nowhere to be seen. The rocker completed his look with a black glove on his left and accessorized with multiple pieces of jewelry.

On the other hand, legendary guitarist Slash looked like he hadn't aged a day over the years as he sported a t-shirt and ripped jeans along with his trademark top hat and aviator sunglasses.

MEAWW previously reported on Axl's mental health struggles. During the crooner's late teens, a psychiatrist concluded that he showed evidence of psychosis but also noted his high IQ. In an early interview titled 'The world according to W. Axl Rose by Del James', the singer opened up about his condition. When asked if he considered himself manic-depressive, the singer said, "I'm very sensitive and emotional, and things upset me and make me feel like not functioning or not dealing with people, the band, or anything."
The iconic frontman added, "I went to a clinic, thinking it would help my moods. The only thing I did was take one 500-question test - ya know, filling in the little black dots. All of a sudden I'm diagnosed manic-depressive. 'Let's put Axl on medication.' Well, the medication doesn't help me deal with stress. The only thing it does is help keep people off my back because they figure I'm on medication."
It's worth noting that Guns N' Roses are undergoing somewhat of a resurrection after the band released their first "new" track in 13 years last year. The song was an official audio version of the track 'Absurd', which they performed live at Boston's Fenway Park on August 3. The previously unreleased track was originally titled 'Silkworms', but the live recording was retitled 'Absurd', per Rolling Stone.
Guns N' Roses have been playing a world tour that included dates in North America and Europe before performing in Singapore. The band is slated to perform in Australia with upcoming dates after they arrived in Perth on Sunday, November 13, for their massive stadium tour. They are expected to be supported by Australian punk bands The Chats and Cosmic Psychos.
Guns N' Roses is scheduled to play at Optus Stadium in Perth on Friday, November 18. They will then play at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on November 22. The next performance will be at Metricon Stadium at the Gold Coast on November 24, before they take the show to Accor Stadium in Sydney on November 27. The band's final tour dates will be at Adelaide Oval on November 29 and December 3 at Melbourne Cricket Ground, the Daily Mail reported.
