According to the New York Post and New York magazine, the answer is a disturbing yes. Ever since Fashion Week kicked off, the rock 'n roll relic has been spotted all over town, staging impromptu concerts and reminding us, like geriatric Mick Jagger before him, that age doesn't matter if you still know how to party. Or something.
Beginning with his performance (both on and off-stage) at John Varvatos and L'Uomo Vogue's NYFW kick-off party, Axl's bender has not gone unnoticed among the city's movers and shakers. He's been spotted with guitar in tow everywhere from Rose Bar (where he serenaded a Twitterific crowd on Valentine's Day) to Greenhouse, where co-owner Barry Mullineaux christened a pink cocktail "the Axl Rose" in the rocker's honor. Among his co-conspirators, we've spotted Kevin Bacon and wife Kyra Sedgwick, Caleb Followill of Kings of Leon, Scarlett Johannsen, and...Sebastian Bach? That's the only one that seems logical.
Where else has Axl been during this Big Apple bender?
Sunday, February 14: Parties with fellow 80's rocker Sebastian Bach at 1oak before moving party to his room at the Essex House Hotel.
Friday, February 19: Swings from chandeliers (figuratively) at the Box, then continues the revelry at Mike's apartment, a secret party loft on Great Jones and Lafayette.
Sunday, February 21: Terrorizes Meatpacking's Standard Hotel and, again, Greenhouse.
We're exhausted just looking at that. But it begs a great question: Where will Axl go next? What stones has he left unturned? What does this week hold? It's a new month chock full of new opportunities to smash guitars, swill pink drinks, and generally act like a teenager. Axl shows no signs of slowing down, and for that, we are thankful.
Keep up with Axl's shenanigans on his Twitter!
