Axl was at #7 in Spin magazine's list of the 50 Greatest Frontmen Of All Time:

07 Axl Rose
Why him?
The star of Guns N' Roses led the greatest hard-rock band of all time, but could take it down a notch for the perfect whistle solo. And nobody else could get away with that bandanna-and-backward-baseball-cap look.
Signature move: The sway walk - eyes closed, both hands on the mic, body rocking as if waves were lapping at his sides.
Bonus: Turned an ailing with a model into a haunting video that made us cry (despite instructions to the contrary).
Sex appeal: 9
Presence: 9
Fashion sense: 6
Musical ability: 8
Total: 32

The Top 10:
1. Prince 2. Mick Jagger 3. Robert Plant 4. James Brown 5. Jimi Hendrix 6. Elvis Presley 7. Axl Rose 8. David Lee Roth 9. David Bowie 10. Bono.

The Stone Temple Pilots fan site, StmothafukinP, has uploaded two Velvet Revolver demos (Slither and Fall To Pieces) while the VR fan site, Velvet-Revolver.com has added a demo of Big Machine to their site.

VELVET REVOLVER are scheduled to film the video for the track "Fall to Pieces" this weekend (July 24-25) in Los Angeles. The concept for the clip is said to be the basic storyline of the song a drug addict falling in a big, black hole. The setting for the video will reportedly be the old Starwood venue and the surroundings of that area and time.

"Fall to Pieces" is the second single off VELVET REVOLVER's gold-certified debut album, "Contraband", which was released in early June.
