We're all familiar with that high pitched scream but, he didn't always do it that way!

A recently discovered (and up til now, unreleased) track from the band Rapidfire gives us a glimpse of Axls' earlier style.

(The band never really got anywhere, but young Axl found work with Guns N Roses and did all right for himself!)

Recorded in 1983, this Axl sings lower and more Rob Halford/Ozzy Osbourne-ish.

Listen for yourself!

What do you think?

Was he better then, or now?
