Axl Rose To Receive Lifetime Achievement Award

by -

According to the Assocated Press Axl Rose will receive the Ronnie James Dio Lifetime Achievement Award during this year’s Golden God Awards. Guns N’ Roses are also set to perform during the award show.

Earlier this month Rose made headlined when he joked about Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Superbowl performance, “So consider that maybe sometime before their actual performance that rather than use a guitar cord or standard wireless, that in the name of science and for all mankind Flea courageously had a newly invented breakthrough in microchip technology installed in his ass that picked up the frequencies of his bass and transmitted them to his amplifier.”

GNR will also be starting a new Las Vegas residency titled ‘An Evening of Destruction. No Trickery!’ in May and they are set to tour this year.

Bio: Mike Mazarone graduated from the Connecticut School of Broadcasting in 2011 with a degree in communications, basically relegating him to better then you status (Except for boss Brett Buchanan). Before joining the AlternativeNation staff he was a contributor and producer to Brett Buchanan’s pro wrestling/MMA/comedy radio show – Barbaric Wrestling Radio, from 2006 to 2009. Mazzarone’s job there was to be a contributor and book interviews. After the show ended Buchanan hired Mazzarone right away to be AlternativeNation's head reporter.

    Yeah nice job on wrecking what was once the biggest band on the planet over the course of 20 years. What a life indeed.

  • Courtney Rocks!

    should win an award for world biggest douchebag

  • the keeper

    Lifetime achievement?

    More like 1986-1993 achievement. He hasn’t done anything noteworthy since then

    • Andy Birger

      But what he did during those years is plenty times more than most of other guys have done during their whole careers.

      • Courtney Rocks!

        Yes but he was a complete asshole and wrote sucky songs
        now he looks like Yosemite Sam and he sings like Mr Hanky the Christmas poo.

    Well gee, couldn\’t happen to a nicer fella!

    He still has his voice and puts on a great show but for him to criticize Flea is hypocritical. This coming from a guy using monitors because he can’t remember lyrics to old GNR songs and using an oxygen tank because he’s overweight. I’m not condoning the Peppers synching they probably got screwed by a suit. Shouldn’t have gone on stage.

    Axl should walk off stage, drop the trophy in a box, & mail it to Izzy Stradlin

  • lilrockable

    Izzy, Slash, Duff, hell even Matt Sorum have their names on more albums than Axl. I respect what Axl did on the original Guns N’ Roses days, and Chinese Democracy had some gems but he is arguably the laziest man in rock music. This award is bullshit.

    He has nothing to prove. He has reached the highest heights as any front man in ROCK-n-ROLL history.

    His songs will be played for the next hundred years as his voice (In His Prime) is 1 in a Billion and top 5 ever for his genre.

    Plus it’s shocking he has the front man syndrome. That gets all in involved worked up. Look at his former mates they can’t even stop talking about how he affected them
