Axl Rose Probed By "Spin"

Are you wondering where in the world is Axl Rose? Well, you're not the only one.

"Spin" magazine celebrates rock's answer to J.D. Salinger in its July issue with a cover story exploring the mystique around the Guns N' Roses recluse.

Rose himself isn't interviewed, but friends and associates reveal a number of Axl fun-facts including the rocker's studio sexual escapades and all-sushi diets.

L.A. Laker-turned-rapper Shaquille O'Neal even reveals an impromptu session in which he was invited to freestyle with Guns 'N Roses in April 1997 while he was recording out of the same building and peeked into Axl's studio.

The July issue of "Spin" hits newsstands the first week of June.
