Injured GUNS N' ROSES Fan To Sue AXL ROSE
A GUNS N' ROSES fan is reportedly planning on taking legal action against the band's lead singer, Axl Rose, after the rocker threw his cordless microphone into the crowd during the opening night of GUNS N' ROSES' Australian tour in Perth on Saturday, hitting the fan in the face and damaging his two front teeth.
39-year old Darren Wright says he was left bleeding, and wants Rose to pay his dental bills, with the tour promoter apologizing and offering a signed microphone from the musician instead.
"With the bright lights and explosions, I couldn't see anything," Wright told The West Australian. "The next thing I knew, I was whacked in the mouth. I thought I had been punched. I was quite stunned and it took a few seconds to realize what was going on. I could feel bits of teeth in my mouth. Then someone is climbing through my legs to grab the microphone."
He added: "I don't think [Axl] intended to do it, but it came at me at a fairly flat and hard trajectory. Those cordless microphones are not light. I'm surprised it didn't do more damage. At the very least, I want someone to pay to get my teeth fixed."
Wright said a dentist told him he would have to have months of dental work costing at least AUD 5000 (approximately $5154).
GUNS N' ROSES' six-date Australian headlining tour with ZZ TOP and ROSE TATTOO is scheduled to wrap on March 20 in Brisbane.
