I made that comments because i am a fan of Guns N' Roses but Axl is half inch shorter than Slash who i am sure isn't over 5'8.5"

I think he is 5'08.75".

Never taller than 5'8", imo. His booking sheet in '92 actually gave a ridiculous 5'10"! Click Here Slash himself might not be taller than 5'8.5". I wouldn't be surprised if Axl was anywhere in that 5'7.5"-5'8" range. It's certainly possible he's lost a fraction as well. Glenn was even saying 5'8" for Axl in the old comments and I don't think there was much difference in their photos.
Travis said on 16/Aug/17
Rob, what do you reckon the height of Izzy Stradlin is? It's always been obvious he has some solid height on Rose, but just how much?
Teddy said on 26/Jun/17
5'8 is better suited since Slash is listed 5'9
Mickey said on 3/Jun/17
around 140lbs in the 80's, nowadays around 180lbs
BillisaLefty said on 23/May/17
For sure between 67 and 70. The police report ones, while reliable, will be exaggerated due to footwear, which, for men, add between .5'' and 2''. So the tallest the reports could place him at is 69.5''. I definitely think he would want to exaggerate, as well. I would say it's fair to say he was a legit 69'' in his youth. However, with bad posture and aging, he likely stands at about 67.5'' now.
dopaminator said on 20/May/17
there's a 1989 performance of him singing Salt Of The Earth with Mick Jagger and he looks 2 inches shorter than Jagger, one inch visible, one other you can guess from his boots compared to Jagger's ballerina-like shoes. If Jagger was really 5'10 back then, that would make Axl around 5'8, at least as his peak height.
Jani said on 6/Apr/17
I saw him personally, axl was just an estimated of 5'7
No One said on 16/Sep/16
"HGT:510, WGT:170 (shoes - custom white Converse), also HAIR: Brown EYES:Blue, and CHARGE ...." That was 1992 and its way off.

His 1998 arrest - HGT:5'9, WGT:160 also HAIR: Red EYES:Green so that seems be more reaslic but still I think it should peak height: 5'9, current height 5'8
Rebel Lemo E. said on 2/Sep/16
His mug shot from the date 07/14/92 St Louis County listed HGT:510, WGT:170 (shoes - custom white Converse), also HAIR: Brown EYES:Blue, and CHARGE .... Nice resolution and very good condition of this photo....
Randy said on 27/Aug/16
I always thought Steven was a little taller than Axl...
Leonardo 1.73m said on 24/Aug/16

Rob, If Slash is 5'9, Axl is under 5'8.5. Can you make a downgrade?
Nobody said on 19/Aug/16
His mug shot from the 80's states 5'10 and 170 pounds (Thought he would be lighter than that)
Jamie said on 9/Jun/16
@Mahmood he's taller than 165 cm. I stick by what I've said 173cm.
mahmood said on 22/May/16
al seems way shorter than this on stage..seems 165 cm max

He was 5'9 when he was younger . A mugshot after the st louis
riots listed his height as 5'10 . Take away the shoes and he is
5'9.
bass said on 20/Sep/14
I met both Axl, Izzy and Dizzy Read in 2006 when they came to the UK. Axl was the smallest about 5ft8.5, Izzy looked about 5ft10 maybe 5ft11 (same height as me) and Dizzy was definitely a solid 6ft.
Bruce said on 20/Sep/14
Back in their prime during the late 80s to mid 90s Kurt is roughly an inch taller than Axl despite the fact Kurt had scoliosis. Slash was a good inch or 2 taller than Axl and Izzy looked a good 2 and half inches taller than Axl. Their heights now could be different as they might have shrunk due to age.

Bret Muchaels 5'9/10

Dave Mustaine isn't 6'0". He's max 5'10" today. He's had neck surgery and has very poor posture. May have stood 5'11" in his younger days.

Slash is not 5'10"-5'11". Closer to 5'9".

Duff is closer to 6'1"

Cobain wasn't 5'10". Closer to 5'8".

rob do you have an estimate of gilby clarke's height , i think he was the shortest member of guns roses ,greetings from chile
evi said on 27/May/14
now dress shoes can add about 1.25 to 1.5 inches, but 2 inches is rare in mens' shoes
evi said on 27/May/14
dadang, the average male shoe only adds about half an inch in height on average, so without shoes he is 5'8.5

He is definitely 5ft8 at very most.It should be changed to 5ft8 (173 cm)

I say between 5'8.5 and 5'9.

He's a bit taller than Steven Adler ( 5ft7 )
He's shorter than Slash ( 5ft9 at the very most )
5ft8 is really fair for him .

5 9 OR 5 8 and 3/4 IN. If you notice, he wears cowboy boots a lot wich give you a great heal to your height

@Peruna - standard 2 inch girl overgrade.
the dude said on 16/Jul/11
Had back stage passes to a concert about 10 years ago in Tampa. I had just walked into the "common area" when Axl popped out of some room with a phone to his ear. He was in a serious convo with whoever was on the other end. Something to do with being paid for something. I was absolutly ****ting a brick when I saw him. He was completely oblivious to my presence. As soon as he got off the phone, I walked up to him just to say "hi". He totally looked at me like I raped his mom. It was ackward. I said something like: "sorry to bother you, but I think you're awesome" and he just grinned and walked back into his room. Anyway, I'm about 5'8.5" without shoes and he was probably as tall if not a little shorter. At the very least, he was looking me in the eye when I spoke to him. He's average height. Below average personality. Kind of a duesch..
Brad said on 5/Jun/11
As listed. In Docs he looks taller. Ate a young 5' 6" G by almost 3", Porty-Maiden Booty cancel out to the Docs.

5'9 easily, but has bad posture though...
glamrockcowgirl said on 12/Feb/11
men r like that my father is only 5'8 but he also claims 2 be 5'9
Anonymous said on 7/Feb/11
He is 5'9, if not taller. The ludicrous 5'6-5'7 claims probably come from insecure people who are obviously not comfortable with their height.
Spence said on 15/Jan/11
No way hes over 5'9

Peruna said on 1/Jan/11
How tall is Stephanie Seymour isnt she like 5ft10?? Just asking as I saw a picture of her an Axl together in the old days and they are the same height, and she has 2 inch heel boots on in the picture, he is in DMs, so he must have been around 5ft 11 minimum at one point. Is there a page for Seymour, can we have one, as she maybe exaggerating her height LOL
Mini Rose said on 9/Aug/07
I think he's 5ft8.5ish, not too sure.. but you're right, no one's as small as AC/DC!
glenn said on 8/Aug/07
thanks julia.you could be right.but id say he is 5-8.5 tops.
Dirty Den said on 7/Aug/07
Axl is always wearing high Shoes everywhere even in music videos. He is really insecure about his height
julia said on 6/Aug/07
hi glenn! axl is 5ft9, which in fact is 176.5cm near 177cm, I'm telling you this 'cause I just converted it on the calculator, and I saw a mugshot of him circa 1997 and it said 5ft10, but surely he is 5.9ft. You should change it, respond please. Great site btw. You can see the heights of all the rockrstars, but nobody is shorter than AC/DC. Having said all that, I love them all.
Viper said on 14/Jul/07
"Hope it comes out this fall but I'm guessing it's more likely to be next spring."

People have been saying this exact same phrase for the past 10 years it seems like. Im starting to think it will never come out.
Mike said on 14/Jul/07
Idk, i hope it comes this year, but im doubtfull. although the guitarist did say in an email after these dates they will focus fully on getting the album out. but to me im afraid well get like 2002-06. 4 years of silence. although, this time the band announced thhey were mixing/recording was done. so hopefully we do get a firm release date soon. keep us updated if you hear anything after the tour ends!
glenn said on 14/Jul/07
axl resides here.not his main place of residence.he calls new york his new home.he loves it here.im agreeing that spring is now looking more likely.unless a single comes out by september,we are not seeing this cd this year.
RP said on 14/Jul/07
You said Axl lives in New York? I never knew that. Last I heard from an insider at Chinesedemococracy.com is that after the tour ends in Japan they are supposed to be focusing on the album. Hope it comes out this fall but I'm guessing it's more likely to be next spring.
glenn said on 13/Jul/07
mag-you too! jane-bebo?
jane said on 13/Jul/07
sorry glenn this may be a silly question but has axl rose got bebo if yes what is it as i went on bebo and typed in axl rose and there was quite a few but i think they are fake thanks glenn
Mag said on 13/Jul/07
Thanks Glenn. Have a lovely weekend!
glenn said on 13/Jul/07
will do.keep in touch mag.
Mag said on 13/Jul/07
The show was great Glenn. It worth all the effort and the time waiting. He was a really good performer. I was only 1 metre away from the stage. Glenn please let me know if you ever see him. Thanks.
glenn said on 9/Jul/07
not sure.he comes here often enough.i usually dont go.im sure he will be here at some point by the end of the year.he lives here.
rochelle said on 9/Jul/07
thanks glenn, i have heard of axl and his mood swings, but he does look like a great guy. Glenn when will you be seeing him again??
glenn said on 3/Jul/07
yeah those photos are 12 hours apart.soundcheck and afterparty. how was the show mag? whenever he comes back to nyc ill be meeting him im sure.though there were a few times i wasnt interested when he was around.better to not be a pest.sorry it didnt work out for you.
annoymous said on 2/Jul/07
glenn how come you're wearing the same shirt and necklace in the first two pictures....was it the same day or something?
Mag said on 1/Jul/07
Glenn I just went to Guns n Roses concert in Sydney on the 23rd of June. I was only 1.5 metres away from the stage. I got to see him up close. OMG he still look good after all these years. It was ashamed that I could not manage to get a backstage pass. So I missed my chance to talk to him. When r u meeting up with him again Glenn? Ty...
glenn said on 26/Jun/07
axl is one of the handful of celebs i had many coversations with.he is a great listener and loves to fill you in on whats going on.a great guy at times.he has mood swings.alot of us do.
rochelle said on 25/Jun/07
glenn, have you ever had a full coversition with axl? is he nice in person because people say he is rude and ignorant? for some reason i dont think that is true. thanks rochelle
glenn said on 22/Jun/07
thanks stefanie.
Stefanie said on 22/Jun/07
to bad the *real band* split up, they were way better when Slash, duff and izzy were in the band. wonder when the cd comes out in sweden, can't wait !
By the way, I have to say that I love this site Glenn ! It is really funnt to look how tall the singers / actors really are :P
glenn said on 20/Jun/07
thats cool aj.
AJ said on 17/Jun/07
Glenn,
I hear you. Thanks again for the information about Axl. I did not call you back about the other request because I found out who to contact.
glenn said on 14/Jun/07
thanks aj.for the assholes that hate on me in the gnr sites.**** off.i have 7 photos with axl and first met him 20 years ago.come pop off to me at a concert if you see me.i was first reconized from this site at a gnr show.aj,yeah,thats the latest word.doesnt mean for sure in his world.
AJ said on 13/Jun/07
Glenn, awesome photos with Axl. So, the album is coming out in September 2007?
glenn said on 5/Jun/07
celebink@yahoo.com. what i mean is this cd was supposed to come out march 2006.the tour last year and now is delaying it.it should be out september.
Mike said on 5/Jun/07
oh, thats too bad :( I guess that means no cd in fall now?? id rather wait until next spring if the tour is delaying the album!!

can I talk to you on email glenn? whats your address?
glenn said on 5/Jun/07
i think touring the u.s. in fall was the original plan.not sure now.other acts are pushing back to next spring.maybe he will.he needs a break in my opinion.this tour is delaying the album now.
Mike said on 31/May/07
cool glenn. I really look forward to chinese democracy this fall!! will they tour the U.S. again this year?

its kinda amazing how short alot of these rock singers are. No one is shorter than AC/dc though.
glenn said on 28/May/07
mike-it should be true.he is touring for awhile to pay back the record company. mag-sorry i missed your email.thanks for the words.email me at celebink@yahoo.com. amy-when axl speaks to me,he has the same voice.and the same height.i remember slash telling me he wanted to leave in 1994.where the you read this stuff? rose-unless im confusing you with someone else,to make it more confusing,i found out it was izzy.unless im confusing stories and songs.and i thought i told you.
amy said on 27/May/07
glenn, is it true that axl may have died 11 years ago in a car crash as I have just seen it on the website that i went on and they said that he may have died 11 years ago. I am shocked it's either that people who says it in the first place are sick and don't know how much they have made gnr fans angry and anyway this is what it says on the website: French rock-critic says in a book to be published within few weeks that Axl died 8 years ago (1996) as a consequence of a car crash ! Geffen Records (Universal) decided to keep the secret and hired a man who looked like Axl (some surgery was needed). His voice, as a matter of fact, doesn't sound as the original Axl.
Slash refused to stay in the band. Duff and Matt left it later...

I don't think it's true, but IF it was, it would be the greatest Rock 'N' Roll swindle in the history !!!
Not just a newgnr, but a new Axl Rose in front of us !

More amazing than Saddam's tricks or Da Vinci Code...

And a sentence like "You think you know, but you have no idea" would make sense.
I know that them pics that you have got above looks like axl (the last one I mean but they have just spinned me right out. Thanx I'm sorry to bother you I am only 15 and confused with weird rumours these days p.s. I like the first two pics of axl and you amazing it's about 16 years old was both taken on first day if it was wow what a difference
Mag said on 27/May/07
Glenn...You look good in all the photos there.

Not sure if you could help me here.

Do you know how I could get a backstage pass for their concert in sydney?

Thanks so much
Mag
Rose said on 15/May/07
hi glenn you know when i told you about axl apparently had survived a drug overdose guess what it was apparently slash who survived the drug overdose now that's confusing me really badly as i just went under the song "Coma" and now they changed it to slash now i was wondering is it true? Or have they got it wrong? If it's true why did slash do it? If it helps I give you the website address if it's confusing you as well just say and i tell you what to do ok thanks
Mike said on 11/May/07
Well, I hope this is it. What do you think Glenn? is this really it? keep us updated if you hear its been turned in! and to Viper, It will be a good album, its Just i think axl is a perfectionist
Dash said on 11/May/07
Makes sense....
glenn said on 11/May/07
original release date was 1999.
Viper said on 10/May/07
At this point Im not sure If it will ever come out. I mean, how many times has it been pushed back now? Countless. Either this GNR album is going to suck or its going to be an absolute rock classic. Its been in the making since 1994!!
glenn said on 10/May/07
its the talk amongst the cirlcle of people here amongst the nyc insiders.the release date that is.im sure this is it.obviously.its being mixed.since february.july the masters will be delivered.or else no sept release.it takes 2 months from master tapes to cd in stores.3 months to properly promote it.markus-alot of singers back in the day were leos.bruce dickenson(5-6),ian gillan(6-1),joe elliot(6-1),joey tempest(5-10?),robert plant(6-1) etc.
Markus said on 9/May/07
Funny thing about singers:

Anthony Kiedis: 174 cm (RHCP)
Axl Rose: 174 cm (G'n R)
Mike Patton: 175 cm (FNM)

Coincidence :P
Bruno said on 7/May/07
did he give you the release date or just a guess?
glenn said on 2/May/07
first week of september is the newest date.pushed from march 6th.
RP said on 2/May/07
I know you've probably got this question about a million times but do you have any idea when the albums coming out? I know they're going on tour in Australia and New Zealand soon and I don't think they'll release it until they get back to the U.S. but I could be wrong.
Ana said on 25/Apr/07
Yo Glenn, how the hell did you get to meet all these people? Where do find 'em all at seriously!!!
peace
glenn said on 2/Apr/07
franco,you cant tell these pics are over a 16 year period.did you forget axls changes? i have a few more pics with him.
Franco said on 2/Apr/07
who in god's name is the guy on the 1st pic??? please dont tell me that's glenn!!!
is this photoshopped? that can't be you?! on one pic you got longer face/thin nose, 2nd one you got short face and squashed nose (dunno how its called), 3rd one you look a bit chubby with a shorter nose. very strange :) lol i looked about the same since 1987 till 2003 give or take a bit more fat but not as drammatic.

damn i envy you meeting AXL :)

yeah he looks 1.74 possibly 5'9 max.
glenn said on 30/Mar/07
it was accidental.my friend was there too.thats what the song was based off of axl told my friend.
Rose said on 30/Mar/07
o.k. thanks why did izzy do it for?
glenn said on 30/Mar/07
it was izzy that had the overdose.
glenn said on 29/Mar/07
remind me.ill ask someone.thanks.
Rose said on 28/Mar/07
glenn, could you please tell me what year and why axl had survived a drug overdose as I found info on internet that on the song "Coma" it was either a message to steven adler or a drug overdose that he survived as it goes on that the doctors that you can hear speaking in the song was the actual doctors that saved his life. thanks
glenn said on 16/Mar/07
october?
Kevin said on 15/Mar/07
hey glenn just wondering, when was this ? the last pic looks recently..

Yvette said on 26/Feb/07
Hi everyone,

great website and even better comment. Glenn, I am sooo jealous!!! I love G 'n' Roses since my teenage years (now I'm 28)! My dream came true on 30.7.'06 in London where I've seen them for a first time (hope not the last one). Of course I love to meet Axl backstage as many others. How big is my chance to make my dream come true ;-))))? Probably not very big ;-(((Do you have an idea whether they comming this or next year to Europe?Thanx ;-X
Anonymous said on 26/Feb/07
That seems about right. and by the way he looks practically the same except the extensions. Where is all this talk about plastic surgery coming from?
Alma said on 16/Jan/07
I have seen him from close (standing right next to me) and he was my height (1,71).
Glenn said on 12/Jan/07
I was just a concert goer.they wernt famous then.I couldve had a group photo with!
gn'r said on 12/Jan/07
Glenn you lucky dude :) Were you just part of the scene, or was it work related? I mean not just anyone gets to hang out with Gn'R back in the day!
Glenn said on 12/Jan/07
I saw Guns at possibly their first time here.1987.hung out with them too.if I only knew.
gn'r said on 10/Jan/07
True, but the new band will never reach the heights of the late 80s Guns N' Roses. They were awesome back then. I'm 26, was too young and never got to see them live in their peak. A lot of kids these days and people in early 20s don't know who Guns are. Crazy. That's what happens when you're away for too long.
Glenn said on 9/Jan/07
Yes,cause the Greatest Hits cd went triple platinum in 2 years.theres still interest.itll go platinum out of curiosity alone.
J. said on 8/Jan/07
Glenn, do you think a new Guns and Roses album would succeed in today's dwindling music landscape?
Glenn said on 8/Jan/07
Probably not ;-)
gn'r said on 7/Jan/07
Looks like no one knows for sure. I suppose he wouldn't appreciate that question too much, would he? :)
Glenn said on 7/Jan/07
Thats what I heard.
gn'r said on 6/Jan/07
Glenn, Axl looks rather weird these days. Do you think he really had plastic surgery, or it's just an age thing?
Glenn said on 6/Jan/07
Yes,he has braids for maybe 4 years.
Anonymous said on 5/Jan/07
yeah that seems about right. high end of 5'8", almost 5'9". and damn,he's got the most gorgeous blue eyes ever!!! i dont care what anyone says,he's still gorgeous.
Derek said on 5/Jan/07
That's true. He always looks taller than he really is. Does he have braids in the most recent picture?
Glenn said on 5/Jan/07
He hasnt really been speaking to me.so I keep silent.when I try to start a conversation,he doesnt say much.at least he isnt yelling at me! hard guy to figure out.he is more friendlier now with friends of mine he originally hated.cd comes out March 6.
Glenn said on 5/Jan/07
You gotta understand pavement levels and he has heels for 2 pics.this most recent being 2 months ago.the far left was his classic thick soled hight top sneakers.he might be 5-9.but he looks 5-8 to me.

[Editor Rob: anything new on the axl gossip front?]
Derek said on 4/Jan/07
Axl looks at least 5'9".

[Editor Rob: this other picture is recent aswell?]
depp said on 6/Dec/06
if glenn is really 5'8 axle looks to be just under 5'10
Anthony said on 4/Dec/06
My friend met Axl backstage after a show. She said he was about 5'9. She also said Axl was quite nice (she said they had a conversation about hamburgers) until someone brought him fake White Castle, which ticked him off.

Greg said on 30/Oct/06
I think 174 is exactly right, in these new pics with his girlfriend (who is listed as 176cm on her site) he looks exactly this height...

AJ said on 19/Oct/06
Glenn, if you could, please try and remember. Thanks dude.
Glenn said on 16/Oct/06
I speak to them on occasion but forgot the names.why? maybe I can help you.
AJ said on 15/Oct/06
Does anyone know who GNR's publicist or Axl Rose's publicist is?
brazilian guy said on 5/Oct/06
like i said in a topic axl looks about my height(170), i´ve been in a gnr concert, he´s 171-172, maybe 5'8" as glenn said, or 172.5 cms is ok for him, i guess this case is closed. 172.5
Mr. E said on 23/Sep/06
All evidence for Axl is correct, saw him in concert in 1992, he had Converse basketball shoes on, he was 5'8" no more no less......a lot of pics he wears boots.....judging from how he wrecked himself with plastic surgery....he might resort to lifts now.....still he's 5'8"
Brad said on 21/Sep/06
I saw Guns do 1 song at Mile High Stadium and Axl just split in his limo. Slash and the guys just did Misfits & punk stuff til the limo came back with the child pissed off like a wet dog. He's one moody hombre. The U.S. swing could auto-destruct at any point. He's like a keg of dynamite with the fuse near a match.
Glenn said on 13/Aug/06
Izzy,if standing straight,is 5-11.just had 2 photos of me with 5-7 Steven Adler get exposed.talk about bad luck.
GnR said on 12/Aug/06
Glenn, do you happen to know how tall Izzy is?
Danimal said on 9/Aug/06
Have you personally measured him Jason? Thought not.
Jason said on 8/Aug/06
No he is 5 ft 9 trust me im Axl Rose fanatic i now everything about him.
Glenn said on 4/Aug/06
1991.I was 19.I dont know them.just know where theyre going to be.
aidah said on 4/Aug/06
god glen how old are you the first one was taken like 88 right and you look the guy from alice in (don't know the last word there to deep for me ) how do you know all these rock stars
Glenn said on 23/Jul/06
I met Les a few times.he is 6-1.maybe 6-2.Larry Lalonde also ofDeath, Black Metal pioneers POSSESSED is 5-7.maybe even 5-6.
Markus said on 22/Jul/06
Glenn, do you have any clue about Les Claypools height, since he walked by you? I always thought he was pretty tall, but then again the rest of Primus is just short I guess.
Glenn said on 9/Jun/06
When he is in a good mood,he'll hang out with you!
Anonymous said on 7/Jun/06
I met Axl Rose in Milan three days ago...
I was shoulder to shoulder with him and I'm sure he can't be more than 170cm.
He was great, very kind and in very good mood.... Axl is God!
Glenn said on 21/May/06
No.I was afraid to bother him.though he was swinging around a Star Wars lightsaber!
Andreas said on 21/May/06
oh well. did he say something interesting?
Glenn said on 21/May/06
yeah.he was in a bad mood.
Andreas said on 19/May/06
Did you meet him?
Glenn said on 19/May/06
The show was incredible! went last night when Izzy showed up.he played at least 4 songs.first 2 being I THINK ABOUT YOU and then an hour later,PATIENCE.heard he had surgery too raj.
raj said on 18/May/06
Did he really have plastic surgey on his face and hair implants? I know hes fat tho'...and now i get that hes short. one of the best frontmans ever.
Andreas said on 18/May/06
Glenn, did you go to any of the shows? Any news? :)
Glenn said on 10/May/06
He isnt signing or taking pictures anymore.unless its 3am at some club or random on the street.if he feels it was planned you were waiting for him,he ignores you.
andreas said on 10/May/06
What do you mean by "he isnt responding to dealers anymore"?
Glenn said on 10/May/06
Not sure which show or shows Ill be at.he isnt responding to dealers anymore.Im sure Ill talk to him.
andreas said on 9/May/06
Glenn, are you going to the show on friday? If you meet him, please try to get some info. about the 1. single. :)
J. said on 8/May/06
Glenn wasn't lying: Click Here
Glenn said on 8/May/06
Oh,Brain.I thought you meant Brian Carrol A.K.A Buckethead.never met Brain.I think he walked by me last year though,as I let Claypool walk by me at the Jammies,to busy getting someone else.I honestly have no clue who played on what.different band from 1999-2002 lineup I think.Axl did say I was correct in him having 75 incomplete songs.he told me most of that stuff was discarded.his own exact words.
D. Ray Morton said on 8/May/06
6'3" for Brain? No kidding. I honestly was picturing something like 5'9", dunno why. He did play drums on the new stuff, right?

I can't wait for fall/late fall!
Glenn said on 7/May/06
Ill tell you whatever you want Andreas.
Glenn said on 7/May/06
So my guess was right! thanks for the link!
andreas said on 7/May/06
He said album out fall/late fall. New guy in the band, but he didn't say who. He told storys from old days and much more!! He was there 2 hours I think! Go to Click Here if you want to hear the interview.
Glenn said on 6/May/06
6-3 for Brian.some say more.No, I didnt hear interveiw,what did he say? Nah, I only heard they were slagging me.
D. Ray Morton said on 6/May/06
Glenn, any thoughts as to Brain's height? (Is he still even playing with Axl?)
andreas said on 6/May/06
Glenn, did you hear the Eddie Trunk interview with Axl last night? That was great! Is there any news about the 1. single? Do you know who is the new guy in GN'R? BTW are you posting on any GN'R sites? I really want to hear about your meetings with Axl!!!
Glenn said on 6/May/06
Riddle-yeah,I saw I had alot of haters out there.amazing,they think Im an obssessed fan that met him 3 times,cause I have 3 photos with him.duh. I HAVE 5.my friend has 13!.and I met him around 30 times in almost 20 years! typical pussy attitude, talking shit out of jealosy,hiding in front of a computer. judging and knowing everything about me.losers.one fan asked if I can help him meet Axl,and Ive tried,in fact I tried to arrange that last night.the haters can go get a life.yeah, I dont know much about the tour,and who is in the band.supposedly,a reunion almost happened 2 months ago.but thats not my news.thanks Riddle for having faith in me.my personal guess is November for 1st cd.he was hinting like July.which now being May,I dont see that.Ill be seeing him any day now,so Ill keep you posted,possibly through my email address,not this site, cause losers dont deserve to know anything.
Riddle said on 5/May/06
Well, I do believe you. There are pictures, so it's obvious that you know him. Anyway, I'm really surprised with the three-cd thing. It's really cool, if it turns to be true. Is it true he wants to release it before summer? RIR web said so. I'm a little surprised that the band changed the Madrid date. It was on 28th and they changed it to 25th. Do you know something about this? I guess he wants some rest for the RIR, but it seems weird anyway.
Glenn said on 4/May/06
You know your stuff Elio.thanks!
Elio said on 4/May/06
Poople,

The only reason Glenn has discussed knowing Axl personally, and what he's up to, is because people such as yourself, keep questioning him and make inaccurate speculations on what Axl is up to. It's taken quite a few months for Glenn to tell us about him knowing Axl, so it's not like he came on here to boast... he's merely backing up his original statements. What he's told us could hardly be described as 'gossip', could it?

I can't see what is so hard to believe about Glenn knowing Axl. He has nothing to gain in lieing about the whole thing. It's not the first time Glenn has been called a liar on these boards... but on every occasion he's been proved right and the cynics have had to eat humble pie.
Glenn said on 3/May/06
Theres 3 albums asshole.he doing recording,mastering,mixing,and rehearsing for the tour.your just jealous.get a life.come to NYC sometime.Ill give you a personal AXL tour.
poople said on 2/May/06
Glenn stop lying to these people. You know just as well as I do that Axl isnt mastering any album in nyc. He is there recording parts for the album. Besides anyone who "knew" Axl like you claim would NEVER go around talking about it on the internet. So stop lying.
Glenn said on 1/May/06
Gekko-its the same braids as 2002.dont know if its real or not. Bart-the whole Axl thing is a mystery again.yes, he admitted to me upfront finally about the Slash visit being true.anything else I dont know about.my friends and I havnt seen him in 2 months,despite him being here still for 3 months.I think he is hiding in someones loft.autograph dealers and photographers finally pissed him off.I gave him his space.
Gekko said on 29/Apr/06
Glenn - please tell us about Axl's new hair.
Bart said on 29/Apr/06
Hey Glenn, You've got great picture's dude! You said Slash visit Axl last october. Do they have spoken to each other since then? Axl has met Matt Sorum 2 weeks ago in nyc. I think there's is no problem anymore for 1 or 2 reunion concerts. But first i wanna hear cd this year and see the new band in holland on the second of July. Do you know if they play al lot of new songs on this tour? Cheers!
Glenn said on 25/Apr/06
Thanks Elio.Axl obviously has been busy these 3 months.havnt seen him in 2.dont want to piss the guy off.so better give him his space.though,I might bump into him soon.
Elio said on 25/Apr/06
John,

There's not a chance in hell that any friend of a celeb could ever give you their email address (if indeed they communicate through emails), it would be a complete betrayal of trust. It's like going round to party at someone's house that you've been invited to, but bringing along 20 uninvited people with you.
Glenn said on 24/Apr/06
By the way a**hole,he's been here for 3 months straight.
Glenn said on 24/Apr/06
If you say so poopee head.yep.all lies.I GUESS HE WAS LYING TO ME.what did he tell you? you talk so much sh*t,you obviously met him.
poople said on 23/Apr/06
Glenn you dont know shit! Rehearsals for the tour have allready started. And Axl is not in NYC mastering any album so stop spreading lies.
Glenn said on 5/Apr/06
now he's been hiding out at his girlfriends house,so I havnt seen him much.Im afraid to bring up leaked tracks.where was the 1st gig again? I forgot.
Riddle said on 3/Apr/06
Please, could you tell me if he said something about including some of the leaked tracks in the album (or albums)? Or if he does know he's got an european tour this spring? Thanks
Glenn said on 1/Apr/06
rehearsals for a tour start in May.mastering of album near completion.summer release is all he tells me.
John said on 31/Mar/06
Glenn why don't u give us Axl's email add we also wanto to talk WITH Him.
Glenn said on 30/Mar/06
Dont be a wiseass all of a sudden Mudkicker.you sit at home wondering,I hang out with the guy!
Glenn said on 30/Mar/06
Certain Things I discuss with Axl remain with me.he hinted at things.dont tell me what I discussed and what I didnt.he doesnt always give a direct answer,and Idont ask bold questions.we hint at at each other.
Glenn said on 30/Mar/06

mudkicker said on 29/Mar/06
so you just know this from that press release that got out a couple weeks ago. Axl didn't discuss it with you.i find it hard to believe that Slash went over to diss his current bandmates to Axl, a guy he hasn't spoken to in 10 years. then slash is supposed to start recording with VR? doesn't make sense. did you discuss anything with axl??-not that he would tell you anything important anyways. you should've asked what the first single will be and when we can expect to see it, and you should've asked him who all is in the band these days.
Glenn said on 28/Mar/06
Slash did visit him last october.and Slash made negative comments about his VELVET members.it could be 3 years IF we see a reunion.and VELVET starts recording in may.
... said on 26/Mar/06
thanks man for info.
btw, cool pics:)))
mudkicker said on 24/Mar/06
why did Slash visit Axl and how do you know this to be true? Are you saying Axl wants to get Chinese Democracy out before he'll consider a reunion? Give us some details PLEASE!!
Glenn said on 24/Mar/06
I didnt dare ask.I do know the thought of a reunion a year ago was impossible.now for 2008 or beyond,its a possibility.between you guys and I.please dont spread that around.could be sooner.or never.it wont have izzy or adler.izzy is on good terms with axl,but hates touring,and adler is a mess.I do know Slash has visited axl.
... said on 24/Mar/06
Maybe it's stupid question but did you asked Axl about reunion of "old" Gn'R?
BuD said on 24/Mar/06
yeah he must have been in a good mood 3 times eh! ;) i've been close to him a few times but he always runs away, or drives faster to get away........Cmon Axl, get the new CD out!!!!
Glenn said on 24/Mar/06
Maybe 2007.
Glenn said on 20/Mar/06
He is 5-8.its gonna be 3 cds over a 3 year period is what he told me.possible summer release,though his publicist hinted this spring,which I dont see possible.Im guessing between august and november.but it really is this year.AXL,when he is in a good mood,is very talkative and great to fans.he loves talking to me! AXL and Ironically SLASH,are my buddies.Slash,names me as one of his friends.true story.my friends and I call AXL, THE AXE.
BR said on 19/Mar/06
Wow... amazing what boots can do for a person. In the 1991 pics he looks a bit taller than you Glenn, but in the recent pic you're the same height, if anything you're slightly taller! I hope you asked him when the hell we're gonna hear Chinese Democracy ;)
Glenn said on 16/Mar/06
Brand new photo coming from 2 mornings ago! Again 5-8.he is wearing boots in that second photo.both 1991, same day.one photo I have missing from 1994.he appeared 5-11 in timb type boots with a heel.tallest I ever saw him.
cendrin rovin said on 20/Feb/06
...someone wrote he was measured as 5"6' in a heavy metal magazine, just look at the Slash discussion... but hes taller than glenn here, a strong 5"8'... one of the best bands ever guns n roses...
Axl's Love Kitten said on 27/Jan/06
I would say that he is probably around 5'9"....I don't think he is too much more or less than that, but no matter what his actual height his, I still love him anyways.....
CelebHeights Editor said on 13/Jan/06
Axl picture added - Glenn may have a little more lean than Axl.
Glenn said on 12/Jan/06
he's 5-8.ive seen him enough.
brazilian guy said on 5/Jan/06
well, i´ve seen axl very close, i´ve been to his concert when he was the leading man in guns and roses, slash, matt sorum, izzi, ok, he is very shorty i can tell, i´m 5'7'', and he looked my high tops, he has shorty legs, and little body, slash is taller than him, to tell ya the truth, he is the shortest in the band, i give him 5'7'', or 172 tops, no way he is 174, he is a little and arrogant guy i can tell ya, 172 tops!!!
Codex said on 21/Dec/05
Axl is obviously 5'9, any theory claiming anything shorter is absurd!
the dude said on 16/Dec/05
he is shorter then slash so probably about 5ft 8 but slash does have big hair
axlroseswife said on 12/May/05
i think Axl Rose is about 5'9 more than anything he is not 5ft 8 but he could be saying that because he wants to think he is tall too though he said once that he was 6'0 and i am sorry but he xant be getting shorter so whats up is he trying to be tall or what?
Brandon said on 8/May/05
I'd say 5'8" seems more accurate height for the infamous hellraiser. I wouldnt take Axl's word on his 5'9"... with that ego of his I wouldnt be surprised if he told people he was 6'9"
