What the hell happened to Axl Rose?

Then and now: Axl Rose in his Guns N' Roses heyday (left) and today (right)
Even rock gods have to get old some day!

Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose has been rockin' for decades now - but it looks like time has finally caught up with him.

The 49-year-old performed in Brazil this week for the Rock In Rio music festival, and puzzled fans with his choice of outfit.

Clad in a snug-fitting yellow coat with his face hidden by a downtuned hat and sunnies, Axl's look was a far cry from the undies-and-bandana combo that made him an icon in the 80s.

Axl's shifting appearance over the years prompted fellow retro rocker Scott Weiland to call him a "fat Botox-faced wig wearer". Harsh!
