Rose Pulls A Cobain Onstage In Canada

Rocker AXL ROSE conjured up memories of NIRVANA's iconic 1992 performance at Britain's Reading Festival last week in Toronto, Canada when he was helped onto the stage in a wheelchair.
Tragic Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain was wheeled onto the Reading stage by music journalist Everett True, pretending to be fresh out of hospital.
On Thursday night (28Jan10), Rose pulled the same trick onstage at the Air Canada Center.
The Paradise City singer and his band didn't hit the stage until 11.30pm - two hours later than scheduled.
Rose explained, "Sorry abut the time delay. I got carried away jumping off s**t last night."
He then leaped from the wheelchair and launched into the title track from Guns N' Roses' latest album, Chinese Democracy.
Rose dedicated the group's Catcher In The Rye to author J.D. Salinger, who died the day before the show.
