Axl Rose - Guns N' Roses Star Recalls Bar Fight

Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose once became embroiled in a nasty bar fight with a fan who sneaked into an aftershow party, according to his bandmate Dj Ashba.
The guitarist claims the pair became involved in an altercation with a "drunk, obnoxious guy" after the stranger found his way into a private party and hit one of the group's tour managers. Ashba stepped in and Rose then came to his defence.
He tells Guitar International magazine, "There was a time when me and Axl got in a bar fight. We kicked the livin' s**t outta this dude. First of all, he snuck into this private aftershow party that was just held for the band and the crew. So it was this drunk, obnoxious guy, big dude... He was asked to leave several times and didn't. He... punched one of our tour managers. I saw it so I grabbed the guy... I walked him over to the door, and he turned around and punched me in the face... Axl saw him hit me and flipped and jumped in..."
But the two rockers later saw the funny side of the incident when the unnamed man subsequently approached them, apologised and asked for autographs.
Ashba adds, "What was funny about it is, about three hours later we get done partying, (we) went up and the guy's a bloody mess sitting in the lobby. We walk up and he apologises... and then he asks if he can get pictures with us and autographs. So we're taking pictures with this guy we literally kicked the s**t out of. It was all good; we all laughed about it at the end, he even laughed. He was like 'Yeah, it was my fault. I was being a total d**k.' It was one of those things where it was just a funny moment."
