Axl's wild antics at the St. Louis 1991 infamous Concert is one of my favorite Axl Rose moments. 😀🤣 He went from singing Rocket Queen in his high pitched singing voice to suddenly ,"Take that from that guy, I'll take it Goddamnit!" In his natural deep and low speaking voice. He then dove into the crowd as if the crowd was a swimming pool! 🤣😀 He then slammed the microphone hard and stormed off. Vh1 had something like,"100 most shocking Rock And Roll Moments and this was top 10 I believe. This "Moment," made me think,"This Axl guy is a Maniac, and I love it! 😀

Hmm, probably the CGBG's performance or the one he did with Metallica for the RIP party.

Axl is very open to merging Himself/Guns And Roses with other Bands that aren't Guns And Roses. Smile He was/is even the temporary lead singer of another well established Rock Band, ACDC. Smile That's REALLY good when a Singer chooses to merge with other Bands that aren't his "Home band," or himself. Smile

Does anyone know exactly what the item that Axl dove into the crowd to take? MOST Guns And Roses Fans say it was a camera, SOME say it was a Knife.... 🤔 At least one Guns And Roses Fans pointed out that if it were REALLY a knife, he would have dived right in front of a knife, which would have been REALLY dangerous...

Hmm. He's lucky it was just a camera and not a knife then. But still, diving headfirst to get a camera seems a bit over the top, doesn't it? A simple,"I will not perform as long as there is illegal filming of this performance, guy in the blue "I love St Louis T-shirt in the third row!" Could have been sufficient. But if he wasn't diving headfirst into a crowd to get a camera he wouldn't be the true Rock And Roll Legend he is

A Guns And Roses Fan said they went to a recent Guns And Roses Show about two years ago and MOST of the Audience was filming Guns and Roses with their Phone Cameras and Axl knew it and didn't freak out about it and was cool with it. A Guns And Roses Fan replied something like,"William Rose in his 50's is a LOT calmer than his crazy 29 year old "Son," Axl Rose!" 🤣😏

One the one side you can't fight cameras anymore and on the other side I am sure he is more chill now.

Can you imagine 57 year old Axl diving headfirst into a crowd to attack a Fan in 2019 for filming him with their phone cameras? 🤣

Yes, Axl dived to get the camera, although the biker, Stump, did have a knife with him and was ready to pull it, as he admitted in a recent interview:

Question. Is Stump the man that Axl hit in the head just before climbing back onstage? Because the man Axl hit in the head looked REALLY confused like he was innocent. IIRC, someone claimed on a Guns And Roses video that he himself was the guy that actually had the camera and knife and Axl hit a random Fan by accident and he and his Friends laughed at it.

No, it wasn't Stump. The guy Axl hit was a venue security guard.

Axl: Oh, and by the way, I never hit the guy with the camera. All I did was grab his vest and didn't let go of that motherfucker for anything. I dived in and grabbed that guy and did not let go of that guy. The only guy I hit was the security guy who was screaming at me and grabbed me, and I didn't even hit him, I slapped him. I was like, "Wake up!" I wouldn't let go of the guy with the camera because the security was trying to get me to let go of him so he could get away. I was like, "No, no, no." Those four guys were yelling and driving me nuts the whole night. It had nothing to do with us playing. They were like "we know Guns N' Roses and we're going to prove we're his best friend and we are his biggest fan and so on." I was like, "Shut up!" I don't care about people screaming, but this guy kept on waving his motorcycle card for his gang, the Saddletramps. I just didn't care about it.

It kind of looks more like bop on the Security Guy's  head than a slap in the face, but it does make sense that Axl did it as a "Wake up," demand. It also makes sense that Axl grabbed the guy who had a camera and a knife and wouldn't let go.

Axl calling his Fan who was bloodied and STILL fighting the guy who was kicking his ass instead of throwing in the towel at one of his Concerts,"You are bloodied and STILL coming back for more, you stupid fack!"  Is hilarious! 🤣 He sounded like Eminem when he said that!🤣

It's hard to pin it down to just one moment. For me, seeing & hearing him perform live was a favorite moment (and back in 2010 he was on top form, imho). Cool

Yep, it's possible to have multiple favorite Axl moments. 😀 Just like Multiple favorite Guns And Roses songs. 😀

Back in the day (like 2006) Axl wrote some "open letters" to fans, gotta say I enjoyed them - the way he put his sentences together was complicated and beautiful at the same time. Very Happy

An example:
Axl wrote:To say the making of this album has been an unbearably long and incomprehensible journey would be an understatement. Overcoming the endless and seemingly insane amount of obstacles faced by all involved, notwithstanding the emotional challenges endured by everyone -- the fans, the band, our road crew and business team -- has at many times seemed like a bad dream in which one wakes up only to find that they are still in the nightmare. Unfortunately, this time it has been played out for over a decade in real life.

The true, ongoing, behind-the-scenes triumphs and casualties are much more complicated than any negative speculation that the media or otherwise has managed to hit upon. For much of the time, various legal issues have arisen, demanding that the best way to deal with these things publicly, quite frankly, was to keep our mouths shut in an attempt to ensure the best outcome-- especially one that wouldn’t jeopardize the band or the album. It’s easy for people to point out how others have handled similar situations or how they would have dealt with these issues themselves if they encountered them in their own lives. But again, without full knowledge of the various dynamics and circumstances involved, these types of comments or commentary are just uninformed, disassociated, generally useless -- and often hindering --speculation.

Middle aged Axl in his 50's dancing like he is younger Axl's Drunk Dad trying to imitate younger Axl's dance moves is cute. 😀 Multiple Guns N'Roses Fans said that Middle aged Axl dancing reminds them of their own Dads dancing. 😀
