Rose Incites Festival Fan Fury

GUNS N' ROSES frontman AXL ROSE is facing fans' wrath for the second time in less than a week after storming off the stage twice during a performance at the Download Festival in Donnington, England this weekend (10-11JUN06). Angry crowds hurled plastic bottles at the erratic frontman as he interrupted the show on two occasions to hasten backstage, citing technical difficulties. And after being subjected to the audience's makeshift missiles, the 44-year-old singer threatened to pull the curtain on his show altogether. Last week (08JUN06), fans walked out of Guns N' Roses' comeback London gig because Rose - who is the only original member in a new-look line-up - hit the stage over an hour behind schedule.

While I was at the Download Festival I thought Axl was brilliant, the reason he left the stage for only a few moments was to have pure oxygen, he did not storm off stage. He politely said sorry to someone as he threw a plastic bottle of wee back at the fans as he didnt mean it to touch the person, if people threw bottles of wee at me I would have done the same as Axl - he merely said that if they carried on doing that as it hit him on the head he would go home. Fans just need to grow up. Where I was standing everyone thoroughly enjoyed the show. Axl has a lung problem and has to have oxygen, I felt really sorry for him and nearly cried when he sang November Rain. At any concert there will always be fans creating some kind of trouble, even tribute bands get rubbish put on their website forums from fans just winding each other up.Hey ho happy days. I shall be seeing Axl again at the NEC and I am confident it will be, as always a brilliant show and if he is poorly he cannot help that. We have to think of his health and well being.Sorry thats long but Ive said it now.Take care, Daff x
