Mainstream hard rock wasn't the same after the members of Guns n' Roses sank their teeth into it. During its late '80s and early '90s heyday, Guns n' Roses perpetually teetered on the brink of chaos and threatened to implode.
Guns n' Roses' penchant for chaos and unpredictable behavior grew in proportion with its popularity; in fact, this was part of its charm. But despite hard rock tendencies and an off-putting attitude, the band had deep respect for tradition.
Unfortunately, the stress and tension that came with global superstardom—and distractions ranging from various members' substance abuse issues to notorious concert riots in St. Louis and Montreal —took their toll.
Axl Rose is worth $200 million as of 2018, putting him nearly on par with modern day superstar Kanye West. Unlike many of today's musicians, who make money from acting and endorsement deals, most of Rose's earnings are from album sales and touring.
