...and upon seeing the news that Axl is trying to force the removal of his fat photos, millions of Americans (GnR fans or not) start frantically downloading every fat-Axl pic they can find for safe keeping... LOL
Sometimes the best thing to do is laugh at yourself and just let it go.
In his book Slash told a story about when they were leaving Japan. They were all given cameras by some important people (Yakuza, I think) but they didn't declare them at Customs and they were all detained. Duff was able to talk his way out of it, Slash and Steven had lost the cameras prior and Izzy just smashed the thing to make it a moot point. But Axl refused to back down and ended up being strip searched. At least he got to keep the camera.
Just go away Axle. You and your little Axlerod name and your little spandex shorts and your XXXL football t-shirt get-up. Get out there and walk a mile in Lindsay Lohan's shoes if you wanna know real persecution, my red-bearded pathos. In the meantime, the world ain't your oyster, 'cause there ain't room enough for the two of us.
