When Fans Attack

Axl Rose

During a 1991 concert in St. Louis, Axl Rose did what Axl Rose does best: freak out. What prompted the freakout was the sight of a camera – something he does not tolerate at Guns N’ Roses concerts. "Take that! Get that guy, and take that!” Rose yelled to security. After security took longer than Axl would have liked, he took matters into his own hands. “I'll take it!” he yelled, and hurled himself into the crowd to retrieve the camera himself. Rose was eventually hauled back onto the stage, where he hurled insults at the venue’s security crew before tossing his mic and fleeing the stage. The drama didn’t end there. When the house lights went up 10 minutes later, fans rioted, damaging the venue and sending 60 people to the hospital. —Jeff Royer
