He left the town in 2002 for London to pursue a career in acting. He picked up the microphone as Axl Rose between jobs and has not looked back. He has taken the band across UK, Europe and America. Last year they played to 20,000 in India and in 2019 they are planning to perform in Japan.
Over the years his band has been joined by several members of Guns N’Roses.
