Hoy en el cumpleaños número 51 de nuestro vocalista, muchos se hacen la pregunta, ¿por qué Axl Rose es considerado el frontman más versátil de la historia y uno de los mejores dentro de la misma? bien, este video lo explica a la perfección, desde los agudos clásicos en él, hasta los graves que tanto nos deleitan. Enjoy.
I will never ever forget watching that Welcome to the Jungle video back when MTV had their top music video countdown I’d watch religiously.
Back in the day, my mom used to think Heavy Metal and Hard Rock was “devil” music and she would forbid me to see Axl in his tight black leather pants moving sensuously to his own music. (I know TMI, right?) Ha! In fact, I used to hide my rock cassette tapes from her after she found one of my Alice Cooper tapes and threw it in the trash. I had a limited budget with my part-time job back then so I would have to hide my
music in my car or in my high school locker because it sucked having to replace them.
One day … my mom left the house to pay bills and/or run errands, and when I heard her car leave … I switched the channel to MTV. I sat right smack in front of the tele and watched rocker Axl in his Welcome to the Jungle music video with his crazy ratted out hair, that crucifix around his neck with bad boy tattoos on his arms. My mom then walks into the living room (says she forgot something) and goes ballistic on me. She freakin’ called the cable company and had MTV removed and I couldn’t watch MTV anymore! Can you believe that shit?!
No worries…where there was a will, there was a way. I had to skip on over to my neighbor’s house and watch the MTV countdown there. It just took a little adjusting to my after school schedule where I would hurry up and do my chores and then go watch the countdown across the street.
Yeah…I’m a bit of a Rocker girl – ¿Y Que?
Here’s to Axl….a forever favorite:
