A Guns N’ Roses Fan Is Planning to Sue
–A GUNS N’ ROSES fan
was hit in the face by AXL ROSE’S cordless microphone during a show in Australia over the weekend . . . and it busted up his mouth. His two front teeth were damaged, he suffered a cut lip, and his mouth was bleeding.
The fan . . . a 39-year-old “pest controller” named Darren Wright . . . says, quote, “With the bright lights and explosions, I couldn’t see anything. The next thing I knew, I was whacked in the mouth. I thought I had been punched . . .
-”It took a few seconds to realize what was going on. I could feel bits of teeth in my mouth. Then someone is climbing through my legs to grab the microphone.”
–He doesn’t think Axl intended to do it . . . but he still wants someone to pay to have his teeth fixed, so he’s preparing a lawsuit. A dentist told him it would require months of dental work, which would run him at least $5,000.
–No one from Guns N’ Roses has commented . . . but Wright says a tour promoter called him to apologize, and offered him a microphone signed by Axl.
–That’s nice. But Wright says instead of a MEMENTO, he’d rather have CASH. He says, quote, “In reality, I don’t think the microphone is going to fix my teeth or pay for the dentist. I’m a father of four on a single income.”
–Regardless, he’s says he doesn’t, quote, “harbor any ill-feelings.”
