Hollywood Rose were an American hard rock group formed in 1983 (initially with the name A.X.L.) by Axl Rose, Izzy Stradlin and Chris Weber. They recorded a 5 song demo, with drummer Johnny Kreis, and added bassist Rick Mars, who was then replaced by Steve Darrow. After Chris Weber was fired from the group, then Road Crew guitarist Slash and drummer steven adler were brought into the group. At this point, apparently due to the firing of Weber, Izzy Stradlin left the group to join London (a group which coincidently featured both Slash and Adler). The group eventually disbanded in 1985.
