Most ridiculous GNR thing you ever witnessed?

Recommended Posts

We all have stories, lord knows I could write a book.  What's something outlandish you witnessed prior to a show or whatnot?

 

Here's one memory :

I was eating breakfast/brunch at Lucky's cafe at the Hard Rock with MSL, during the second residency.  (Believe it was a Thursday prior to the final shows)  Around the corner rolls Beta with porn legend Ron Jeremy (Swear on my mother).  The stink eye she gave MSL was priceless.....  BTW, she was carrying a ton of fruit and likely on her way back up to a suite.

Nice story bro.

one that I remember ... at the Guns in Rio show (1992), Axl got annoyed with something and left the show in half going away by helicopter.

Did Ron sink his knob into Beta's barn? 

If only we had an investigative reporter to track down the objective truth...

I guess if we're strictly talking "ridiculous" one that comes to my mind was the show in Tokyo, 2012, which was in a small club, as a kind of follow up to the Up Close and Personal tour, and some fucking random Lebias hanger on, like Beta's fucking cousin or some shit, dude must have been around 45-50 years old, gives these two chicks backstage passes.

 

Around midnight or so, after the show, one of the girl's Dad shows up, American guy, and he was fucking furious.  Eventually the two girls emerge with the guy from the back door and the Dad is yelling "These girls are fucking fourteen man....what the fuck is wrong with you?"  And the Lebeis guy was like "I was just trying to be nice and let them meet Axl" or something.  He's lucky the Dad didn't crack him one.

Estranged - I know exactly who you are talking about.  While I do believe him to not be a pedo, he is one creepy mofo.

 

Another one - First day of the UYI tour at Alpine Valley, we get there at 11:00 to wait.  Pure fucking chaos in the grass parking area.  I saw a 18-25 yr old chick being drug by her hair by some goofy looking dude.  He was yelling she shouldn't drink so much, and at the time I didn't process it as a big deal.  Over the years I have wondered how that ended up for her.

Yeah, I'm not gonna speculate on whether or not he was actually trying to fuck those 14 year old girls, but I imagine he was, cause why else even bother talking to them?  Plus most of the women in the crowd were in their late 30s/early 40s, as most GNR fans are aging Gen X-ers, so this pair of jailbait was probably the hottest girls he spotted that night.


I will say this for certain though:  it was repulsive to watch; not in a lecherous old creep trying to fuck younger girls kinda way, cause hey, I'm a guy and I get that.  It was disgusting to watch this hanger-on nobody, this piece of trash that never did anything to even remotely earn the opportunity to invite chicks backstage at a rock concert.  He had that position simply because his cousin used to clean the toilets of the supermodel Axl used to fuck almost 30 years ago.  And Beta is so good at manipulating and taking advantage of Axl, that her nasty ass fucking extended family that were probably living in tin sheds in a 3rd world country when GNR was busting their asses in LA in 1985, now gets to be part of the GNR "entourage."  Disgusting.

 

That was the first thing that popped in my head that I've personally witnessed.  Other than that, it's just the sheer amount of fucking weirdos and freaks and social retards that continued to see this band through the NuGNR years.  I mean, normies went in the 80s/90s.  Normies went to see NITL for the nostalgia.  And I bet even a few normies went to the shows in 2002 when Axl first resurfaced, just out of curiosity.   But the people that continued to see them from 2006-2014??  Jeez, what a bunch of fucking rejects.


I'm embarrassed to admit that I am one of them.   I want to hide my face and be like "These 7000 people are not with me."

The man with a tub on his head, shredding like a guitar nerd, destroying classic songs. Thankfully to all, he finally succumbed to his sickly ways, and died.

Jesus where to start. 

 

2000 onwards. Buckethead and Finck to start. 

 

That MTV performance. The hair, the fat, the football jerseys. 

 

Bumblefoot and his retarded gimmicky guitars. 

 

DJ Ashba (literally everything) 

 

Team Brazil.

 

The LAX incident - "He hit our mother!" 

 

Axl being held back by a rail thin Sasha and a midget 

 

Every Axl Rose Disaster incident 

 

Dizzy begging on twitter for money to send his daughter to college

 

Adler turning up at the Hall of Fame and embarrassing everyone that ever doubted him by nailing it. 

 

But yeah I'm with Bonham on this one

 

Downzy out Jarmo-ing that Swedish ball-licker and turning the largest fan forum into Jezebel.com is frankly unbefuckinglievable.

The Geraldine episode has to be the deep of the deepest, the lowest, the bottom line, the ultimate humiliation.

 

Under that I can only imagine Slash knocking at Geraldine's door, begging for Geraldine's attention and having it only 10 years later. Now he's happy kissing Geraldine's ass on a daily basis.

I saw Ron get attacked at his own show in London while on stage, that was pretty mad. I met him after. He came across really well
