After being missing for the better part of these past fifteen years, cornrowed recluse Axl Rose has finally turned up — on the Internet! Last Friday, Rose began making nightly appearances on a Guns N' Roses message board. Using the handle "Dexter" (apparently inspired by the TV show from the looks of his avatar), he's been answering fans' questions, sort of, in a bizarre language made of emoticons and gibberish. On Sunday, he wrote a 4,600-word post about the legal ownership of his band name and how much he likes Slash these days (not very much). [MyGnRForum via Stereogum]
