GUNS N' ROSES' BUMBLEFOOT, DIZZY REED Interviewed On Australian TV (Video)

Larry and Kylie of "The Morning Show" on 7News in Sydney, Australia earlier this week get guitar and rock star move lessons from GUNS N' ROSES members Dizzy Reed (keyboards) and Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal (guitar), and return the favor by teaching them some Tamworth RSL moves. Check out the clip below.

As previously reported, an Australian fan is planning to sue GUNS N' ROSES singer Axl Rose after his teeth were shattered by a cordless microphone that Rose tossed into the crowd during the band's recent concert in the city of Perth. Darren Wright claims he sustained about $5,000 worth of damage to his mouth, saying, "With the bright lights and explosions, I couldn't see anything. 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."

Wright says he sustained two chipped teeth, an exposed nerve in one of them and a cut lip, adding that his dentist estimated it will take months of work and at least $5,000 to repair everything.

Although the promoter offered Wright an apology as well as a new mic autographed by Rose, Wright said, "In reality I don't think the microphone is going to fix my teeth or pay for the dentist. I'm a father of four on a single income doing it hard in Perth."

He also said that he does not hold anything personal against Rose, explaining, "I don't think he 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."
