Axl Rose; harbinger of the Apocalypse

Axl did some cool shit back in the day and then he became a ROCK STAR.

Way larger than life.

The world at large tired of that quite quickly, but it kept Axl himself mesmerized for decades.

But is he ever back!

There are multiple levels of irony at play when we witness rock and roll icons rocking their knee braces.

So Axl fronting for the most formulaicly successful rock band of all time should come as no surprise.

But what does it all mean?

Think about it...

...and the longer you think about it, the more likely you are to suspect that what we're seeing in these end times is a bunch of anxious suits worried about the expiry dates on their meal tickets.

I mean, are there any sound reasons whatsoever for even having another AC/DC tour?

Let's face it, AC/DC is AC/DC. They've never aspired to anything else. They are really good at what they do. Old age has knocked a couple of key members out of this tour.

Enter Axl.

Maybe he's still into the rock star thing. Maybe he needs the money.


Or maybe we're witnessing the collapse of that pop culture scaffolding that's been propping up our faith in capitalism for the last hundred years.
