27 Years Ago Today, Axl Rose Starts a Riot in St Louis
Guns N Roses rips into "Rocket Queen" then all hell breaks loose.
Don't take Axl's picture, or he'll kick your ass...in a fur coat.
27 years ago today, Guns N Roses frontman Axl Rose did the most rock and roll thing you can possibly do...end the show early and cause a riot.
After security did not react quick enough and take away a camera from a fan quick enough, Axl jumped into the crowd and exchanged punches with some concertgoers. After Mr. Rose got back on stage, he slammed down his mic and ended the show. What followed caused thousands of dollars in damages, put Axl in jail, and got GnR banned from STL. Happy Anniversary!
