Who is Axel Steel? Edit
Axel Steel is one of the major playable characters in the Guitar Hero series, having appeared in every game to-date. According to Guitar Hero II, he started playing the guitar to pass time during a suspension in elementary school, and he got his first big break while hauling equipment for Dopple Ganger. After attaining superstar status, Axel stepped out of the limelight for awhile, but because of his extreme love of performing, he eventually returned to performing.
"No frills, no fluff. Axel Steel is a shredder from the old school. He was put on this planet for two things, to drink beer and to play some Rock N' Roll. Looks like he's almost out of beer. - Guitar Hero in-game bio
Contest History Edit
Win-Loss Record: 0-1
Summer 2008 Contest - Division 6 - Third Group
- Division 6 Round 1 --- 4th place, 9872 [7.56%] - Cloud Strife, 78138 [59.80%] - Midna, 26617 [20.37%] - Miles Edgeworth, 16037 [12.27%]
Pre-contest, there was some hype for Axel Steel - he was a well-known character from the highly popular Guitar Hero games, and his opponents for qualification were Summer 2007's biggest disappointment in Midna and Phoenix Wright's far-weaker counterpart. What these hypers failed to take into account was that the focus of the Guitar Hero series is completely on the playing, and nobody really cares about the characters. Needless to say, the hype fell flat on its face as Axel commandingly took the bottom spot, falling nearly 5% below Edgeworth.
