July 2, 1991

July2On this day in 1991, Axl Rose jumped into the audience during a concert in St. Louis, Missouri.

When Rose got sight of a camera in the crowd – something he does not tolerate at Guns N’ Roses concerts – he yelled, ‘Take that! Get that guy, and take that!” to security. Rose felt the security was taking too long to retrieve the device. So, being the notoriously impulsive Axl Rose, he took matters into his own hands. He jumped into the crowd and punched the fella with the camera in the head. Once security had Rose back on stage, he yelled into the mic, ‘Well… Thanks to the lame-ass security, I’m going home!” and then threw the mic to the ground.

The excitement for the evening didn’t end there. When the house lights went up ten minutes later, fans rioted, damaging the venue, and sending 60 people to the hospital.
