Axl Rose is famous for being the founding member of one of the most successful rock bands of all time, Guns N’ Roses. Besides that, several media outlets have dubbed him one of the greatest singers of all time, thanks to his distinctive and powerful wide-ranging voice.
With these honors to his name, take a look at Axl Rose’s successful career and the net worth he has.
Axl Rose’s Career
The 60-year-old started to be active in the local hard rock scene in the 1980s and joined several bands.
He co-founded Guns N’ Roses in 1985 and found great success with several recognitions in the late 1980s and the early 1990s.
Their first album, Appetite for Destruction, dropped in 1987 and sold more than 30 million copies worldwide. It has even become the best-selling debut album of all time in the U.S., with 18 million units sold.
Other full-length albums followed it, the twin albums Use Your Illusion and Use Your Illusion II, debuting No. 2 and No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and selling a combined 35 million copies worldwide.
After the group held a two-and-a-half-year Use Your Illusion Tour in 1994, Rose disappeared from the limelight while the other band members went on their separate ways.
As the band’s remaining original member, he continued working under its banner after legally obtaining the band name.
He had a new lineup of the group at Rock in Rio 3 and started playing periodic concert tours to promote the much-awaited Chinese Democracy.
