Asking because the way Axl looks is throwing me off. The main thing is hair is a LOT shorter than his famously extremely long hair of 1990-1992, and he looks a bit older than 1991-1993 too. It could be 92 or early 93, but is it possible it could also be 1994?

Any idea when? Thanks !

I don't know, I haven't found any reliable information on the date and context of the picture (although most sites caption it as being from 1989 or 1990).

I don't think that Axl looks necessarily older in this picture; it could be just his face expression and the light. As for his hair, he may have had a layered haircut so only the front hair was shorter.

Btw, I realized that the picture was tweeted by Ice Cube - I don't know if it had circulated before.

In the bit of research I’ve done, it has to be after 1991 as the SOX logo of the cap Cube is wearing was only introduced in 1991. So that precludes anytime pre 1991 or 1992

Thing is even when Axl wore layered cuts, the front was always left long.

Google any 1991 pic, or any 1992 pic up to December 1992 through early 1993 (when he had gotten a haircut) by Argentina 1993 it was long all around again. But then in very late 1993 or early 1994 he had it cut again shorter than ever before, all around

In court pictures from October 1993 his hair is long and full around, the bangs are very long and without any thinning or choppiness

If I personally had to guess I would say this photo dated anywhere from December 1993 onward, especially because of the necklace

Yeah I was right I had seen this photo before!

Here is a cool 2010 story on it:

Dr. Dre Was Shocked When Axl Rose Wore N.W.A. Hat In Video (Feel Numb, January 15, 2010)

Ice Cube was from rap group NWA (Niggaz Wit Attitudes), along with Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, DJ Yella and MC Ren.

As you guys probably know Axl wore NWA hats on Use Your Illusion Tour

NWA, on the other hand, recorded a song named "Appetite for Destruction".

And -- this is pretty cool -- according to this Matt Sorum 2018 Instagram post, "We did a track with NWA n GNR that was never released".

I also remember reading about the recording of this track many, many years ago and I believe there was no Axl involvement on it, it was just Slash and Matt (and maybe Duff?) with the rap guys

But I could be wrong

Some more info on GNR-NWA connection

(not Axl on this one)

According to "Slash Paradise", Slash appears uncredited on the Eazy-E's track "Luv 4 Dem Gangsta'z"

Eazy-E
Beverly Hills Cop 3 soundtrack (1994)
Slash on "Luv 4 Dem Gangsta'z"
Notes: even if he is not credited anywhere, Slash plays on this rap song with Eazy-E.

And this seems to settle the matter of be the day when Axl met Ice Cube the guys from NWA.

[Correction: the sentence above mentioning Axl meeting Ice Cube along with NWA members but Ice Cube left NWA in 1989 though so he probably/most likely/certainly wasn't present on this day]

The guys from NWA met Axl at the LA Forum -- this is most likely on the 1991 shows -- according to this:

About the time GNR nearly toured with NWA

But that doesn't mean the photo is from 1991

ABOUT THE TIME GN'R NEARLY TOURED WITH NWA

But that doesn't mean the photo is from 1991
Ice Cube left NWA in 1989 though (and was at odds with the remaining members for years), so he couldn't have been at the Forum in 1991.

This picture is from the LA Forum apparently

But not the one of Axl with Ice Cube.

I didn't know that Ice Cube wasn't in the band in 1991!

Sorry for the mistake!

I believe that the picture is from the day they tracked the Easy-E/Slash/Duff/Matt song?
