HUH? WHO? WHAT THE FUCK?

STEREO nightclub owners Barry Mullineaux and Mike Satsky were closing up their Chelsea hotspot at 5:30 a.m. the other morning when they encountered elusive Guns ‘N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose at the front door. The braided rocker was with bandmates and a bevy of beauties wanting to keep his 44th birthday bash going. Rose was so eager to get inside the club that he offered the owners a little bribe – an exclusive listening party for his yet-to-be released album, "Chinese Democracy." Axl dispatched his driver to retrieve the unreleased CD and the owners proceeded to play host, bartender and DJ to the posse till 8 a.m.
Let’s take a look back at the pre-tattoo, pre-firemans coat, pre-bad mood rings, pre facial hair, pre-corn rows, pre-millionaire, pre-whack job Axl Rose.
Shall we? Follow me.
W. Axl Rose far left in Rapid Fire (1983). No tattoos, no Cathouse swag,
no beard, and no firemans jacket either.
Rumor has it that the Rapid Fire "EP" featuring Axl Rose is set to hit the streets in 2006. Metal Sludge staffers were fortunate enough to hear these recordings, and we have to say, they ARE DEAD ON Gn’R-esque tunes. Axl sounds just like Axl, and the quality is suprisingly good for being well over 20 years old.
