HELP WANTED: CELEBRITY BOUNCERS — MUST HAVE HIT RECORD

He may have been lip-syncing a different tune the next morning, but lovely Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach was feeling no pain on a recent Monday night at Club With No Name as he chatted with Guns N’ Roses singer Axl Rose and psychedelic soul-man Lenny (the former Mr Lisa Bonet) Kravitz in the DJ booth.

Sebastian got to feeling so good, in fact, that in the break between live bands, he made a beeline for the stage — and a live mike — so that he could do more than just mouth the words to the James Brown classic, “I Feel Good."

The next band up, the popular Broken Homes, had a heck of a time setting up their equipment with Sebastian stumbling around. Finally, Broken Homes were about to go on, and rather than humiliate Sebastian by having the Club’s beefy security staff “persuade" him out the door — they don’t like to do that if you’re famous, it's bad for business — the management dispatched an expert on the subject of rowdy rock stars: Axl Rose, who attempted first to cajole and, when that didn't work, then to gently drag Sebastian from the stage. This proved to be more than a one-man task, and it took Lenny Kravitz lending a hand to finally remove Sebastian from the limelight.

But poor Axl — even when he saves the day he just can’t win. Whether chasing down a hit n' run driver, as he’s said to have done at a backyard BBQ last year, or, in this case, coming to the aid of a fellow rock star, he still gets a bum rap. Not only did Axl’s heroics go unlauded, but worse: onlookers thought they’d witnessed a fight, and blamed Axl for starting it!

This incident at the Club With No Name was mentioned later in a later Spin magazine article, posted by @Soulmonster in the comments of this thread:

Apparently the date and the bands in the Spin article are wrong.
