BiographyThe band was made up of 7 members who all had different lifestyles. The lead singer, Axl Rose, claims to be arrested more than 20 times and has spent over 3 months in jail. They were all misfits that came together in Los Angeles in the 80's, and from then on they were known as Guns n' Roses. The name was coined in 1985 when Tracii Guns (of L.A Guns) joined Rose and Stradlin's band, Hollywood Rose. After Guns left, they were joined by Slash, Adler, and finally, McKagan.
