1990.09.28 - L.A. Weekly - L.A. Dee Da (Axl) 1990_031

Transcript (excerpts):
----------------------------

WILD IRE-ISH ROSE

An “extremely healthy-looking” Axl Rose and friends dropped by mellow retro-‘70s club 1970 at Probe last Sunday night, the one place in town where “doing the Hustle” always takes on a more attractive meaning. In addition to a new haircut and new clothes, the formerly pasty Axl sported a tan as well as a tall, slim brunette. While at the club, Axl’s buddy managed to get into a scrap; Axl intervened only to break up the fight, but all the bouncers saw was Axl fighting, so they threw out all concerned – leaving quite a few broken-hearted girls inside. Things were cleared up outside the club between Axl and the Probe security, and everyone parted on good terms.

AXL & WHEELS

It just goes to show: no good deed goes unpunished, especially when you’re famous, and there never seems to be enough ink when it comes time to record a star’s more heroic acts. Like last summer, when the above-mentioned Axl Rose and his then fiancé, Erin Everly, attended a BBQ at the San Fernando Valley digs on Guns N’ Roses/Rolling Stones/Megadeth tour assistant Mike Miller. It was a pleasant afternoon of eating and drinking (not necessarily in that order), and Axl was demonstrating for Mike the new 10-grand stereo on his Ford Bronco, which he’d conveniently parked on Mike’s front lawn. But no one knew just how convenient Axl’s job would turn out to be until two women went to get into their car and a drunk driver sped by a little too close, completely ripping off their car’s door. Mike’s house is at the corner of a dead-end street, with an alley behind. Mike’s guests began chasing the offender, and two guys were hanging off the car, but of course Mike and Axl had the car stereo turned up so loud that they couldn’t initially hear the commotion. When he caught sight of what was going on, though, Axl jumped into his truck and quickly blocked the entrance to the alley so that the drunk driver couldn’t get out, eventually another car pulled up behind and trapped him until the cops came and took him away. Not only was it Axl’s quick thinking that blocked the guy’s escape route, but the guy could have totaled Axl and his truck.

Interesting. It was at a party at Miller's place in the late spring of 1989 that Axl allegedly shot the pig. Lots of things happened at that place.

This barbeque also took place in the summer of 1989, so likely before Axl travelled to Chicago.

Yes, and it makes me wonder if it was the same barbecue party.

From a brief mention in an issue of L.A Weekly (I saw it but now I can't seem to find it) it seems there was annoyance (there was implication) on Axl's/the band's part about the report of the incident with the pig.

Also in the "L.A. Dee Da" report on the Park Piazza Hotel gig in 1989 it was reported that the writers of that L.A. Weekly column were personae non gratae with RIP magazine and Del James in particular:
