Axl Rose is back

Guns N Roses is attempting a comeback this year; they've got a new album coming out in the fall. But can anyone take Axl Rose seriously as a rock star again after the massive amount of plastic surgery he's had since their last release?

































Obvious plastic surgery is always a bad thing, but it's particularly embarrassing on a man. Women at least have the societal pressure excuse. Men, this is not the beauty ideal:

It's obvious when women get plastic surgery, not always, but I know my juggs (not my own juggs, but all the juggs I see I have a snapshot memory for) so in the juggs category, it's obvious, the whole collagen lips thing is frightening, and we as a society accept it, at least in women, cuz we love juggs, and lovely CSF's (I will elaborate on the abbreviation if asked) and DSL's (which I just think is crude) but.

Men with plastic surgery? I have 3 names.

Mickey Rourke
Burt Reynolds
and, a little more subtly.
Sean Connery.

These manly men became the joan rivers of male plastic surgery.

It's a shame, and it's disgusting. Men are the "sexiest" and most manly when they ARE beat up, and rugged, and manly. Not when they look like cox and forkum sketches.

I don't think men are as hesitant about cosmetic stuff like they used to be. I think many of us would want to get some of the wrinkles, etc improved on but it probably really boils down to not wanting to spend the money - better to upgrade the boat or get some bonds.

but I have to say by God if he don't look like a bleached Rastafarian, but then I was too old to much get into his music when he first hit the stage

My guess though, is that plastic surgery is more acceptable for lead singers than for most males, especially drummers, lead guitarists, and bass players.

Keith Richard sets the tone there, I should think. No plastic surgeon has ever touched Keith, to be sure. (Although sadly, of course, he's just had brain surgery and I hope that he does well.)

OF COURSE bass players don't get plastic surgery, it's their JOB to be ugly, and bad dancers(ironic since they are so rythmic in their play) Noone wants a pretty bass player, look at the only two examples. Paul, who has written the most weak and formulaic songs for the last 30 years, and Kip Winger who talked about banging a 17 year old girl when he was a 29 year old man.

Bass players MUST be ugly so that we can avoid another Winger.
