After he arrived in Los Angeles, he joined the band ‘Rapidfire’, with whom he recorded a demo, in 1983. After the group disbanded, he joined ‘L.A. Guns’, before forming ‘Hollywood Rose’ with his friend Izzy Stradlin. In 1985, he and former band mate, Tracii Guns formed the band, ‘Guns N’ Roses’ by merging ‘Hollywood Rose’ and ‘L.A. Guns’. They played at ‘The Troubadour’ and then started appearing more frequently on the L.A. club circuit. This is when they started developing their fan base and attracted major record labels along their way. Just before signing his official contract with Geffen Records in 1986, he legally got his name changed to W. Axl Rose.
In 1987, the band released their debut album, ‘Appetite for Destruction’, which became a huge success despite its slow start. The album was included in the year’s best list and sold over a million copies in the United States alone.
Their fan base expanded so quickly and in such large numbers that in 1988, during the ‘Monsters of Rock’ festival in England, two fans were crushed to death when the crowds began dancing to their hit single, ‘It’s So Easy’. From then on, Rose made it a point to address his fans to calm down. He has even halted the shows on a number of occasions to pacify the audience. In 1988, they released the album, ‘G N’ R Lies’, which became an extremely popular album, but it was also severely criticized for promoting homophobic attitudes and prejudiced sentiments in the song, ‘One in a Million’.
By 1989, ‘Guns N’ Roses’ had become one of the front-runner bands in the world of rock music and the same year, he appeared solo on the cover of the prestigious ‘Rolling Stone’ magazine.
In 1990, the band was to record a follow-up for their debut album, but due to one of the band members, Steven Adler, struggle with drug abuse, the recording process was slowed down considerably. As a result, Adler was fired and was replaced by Matt Sorum. Meanwhile, Dizzy Reed also joined the band. Despite not having an album to promote in 1991, the band left on a two and a half year tour, ‘Use Your Illusion Tour’, for which Rose faced a lot of flak from audiences and critics due to his late starts or on-stage antics. The same year, the band released two albums, ‘Use Your Illusion I’ and ‘Use Your Illusion II’.
The final show for ‘Guns N’ Roses’ during the ‘Use Your Illusion Tour’ took place on July 17, 1993, in Buenos Aires, which also proved to be Rose’s last performance with the band for the next seven-and-half years. In November the same year, the band released ‘The Spaghetti Incident?’ which was not very successful unlike their previous albums.
Through the 1990s, he remained a recluse and did not appear in the public much after taking a hiatus from the band. Although the group never disbanded, they did not release any new material through the remainder part of the 90s.
In 2001, he was once again seen at ‘Rock in Rio 3’, with a new lineup of musicians. He was known to have fired all his previous musicians without even consulting them and for ‘no reason’.
He once again withdrew from the public but not for long as in 2004, he lent his voice for the video game, ‘Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas’.
In 2006, the band once again went on a tour and continued to tour the subsequent year as well.
‘Guns N’ Roses’ finally released ‘Chinese Democracy’, on November 23, 2008, 15 years after their last album. The next few years, the band toured America, Europe, and Australia. They also headed to ‘Rock in Rio 4’.
