Rose was married to Erin Everly, the daughter of Don Everly, from April 1990 until the marriage was annulled in January 1991. They met in 1986 and had a very tumultuous relationship that ended in court proceedings and allegations of abuse. In a 1994 People magazine profile, Everly claimed that Axl beat her repeatedly and even removed the doors to their home so he could keep an eye on her. She sued him in 1994 after she was called to testify in a lawsuit brought by Axl's ex-girlfriend Stephanie Seymour, which alleged similar abuse. Everly later dated David Arquette before disappearing from public life.
Rose and Stradlin formed the band. They took their name from two bands they used to play in, L.A. Guns and Hollywood Rose.
Axl Rose had a persistent stalker. Her name is Karen Jane McNeil, and she claimed to communicate with Rose through telepathy.
