Axl Rose: Rock’s New Favorite Nice Guy

Who are you, and what have you done with Axl Rose?!

The Guns N' Roses and AC/DC singer is not only playing shows on time these days, he's turning into a bona fide Nice Guy. Rose's latest good deed was reaching out to Sadie Elledge, the 18-year-old waitress in Harrisonburg, Va., who was left a racist note by a customer at Jess' Quick Lunch telling her, "We only tip citizens."

Elledge, who IS a citizen, was contacted by Jane the Virgin actress Greice Santo, who's a friend of Rose, and provided Elledge with a special makeover. Rose heard about Santo’s good deed and also wanted to do something special, so he invited Elledge and her family to attend AC/DC’s concert in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., at his expense -- including airfare and hotel rooms.

The family couldn't make that date but will attend the band's closer September 17 performance in Washington, D.C.

What a guy! (Really).
