When Metal Attacks: Guns N’ Roses’ Boston Bottle Incident
October 14, 2013 8:00 AM

When “hair metal” was at its peak and heavy blues rock continued to decline in the face of the “grunge” era, along came Guns N’ Roses. They invigorated the rock scene with their raw, aggressive rock & roll that ditched the glamour and fun of hair metal bands in favor of a more rebellious persona. They may not have been a true “heavy metal” band, but they certainly represented the attitude, none more than Axl Rose.

Well, Axl Rose’s personality certainly didn’t mix with those of drunk rock & roll fans in Boston. The band played the Boston Garden on March 17, 1993, and actually played relatively on time and delivered a strong set – but it still was not without incident.

According to a review of the show from the Boston Globe, a fan threw a glass bottle onto the stage toward the band after only three songs. This caused Axl & Co. to retreat to the backstage area, where they stayed for about 10 minutes.

This prompted “Bullsh*t!” chants from the crowd as the band sat backstage to take a breather before returning. The review notes that it would have been pretty much impossible for a fan to get a glass bottle past security into the crowd, so the fan likely brought the bottle from backstage.

And speaking of the band’s attitude, they launched into their Misfits cover “Attitude” when Slash quipped “Not that this city needs any.”

Boston has certainly garnered quite the reputation for having an attitude problem, and this bottle thrower at the Guns N’ Roses concert did nothing to silence those opinions. But hey it’s GNR, you have to expect their personalities and those of many Bostonians to clash.
