Michelle Young and Axl Rose have separated.
Michelle Young was a high school friend of Slash. Axl and Michelle were in a car one night when the song “Your Song” by Elton John came on. Michelle ask Axl to write a song for her, and thus “My Michelle” was created. Axl was ...honest in his lyrics about how her life was spiraling out of control, the band thought she would hate it, but she loved it.
