Dave Grohl Sits in Axl Rose’s Wheelchair Whlie Watching Guns N’ Roses Perform
All you guys and gals remember that when Axl Rose broke his foot at the Troubadour in April of 2016 that Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl stepped up. Dave Grohl offered his guitar throne to Axl Rose so the band didn’t have to cancel their Coachella and Las Vegas dates. Dave Grohl and his partner in crime Taylor Hawkins were invited to one of the Guns N’ Roses gigs in Vegas and watched the show from both the Pit and the side stage. Check out the photo of Dave Grohl sitting in Axl Rose’s chair and video of Dave and Taylor in the pit below!
According to Blabbermouth,
In a brand new interview with Yahoo! Music, GUNS N’ ROSES guitarist Slash was asked if he thinks the band’s catalog has aged well in the wake of the #MeToo Movement. “I’ve never thought of that,” Slash responded. “It’s never crossed my mind. I mean, I think when the #MeToo thing really blew up, the thought crossed my mind of a bunch of musicians, not particular ones, but just musicians [who might be implicated]. But for the most part, as far as all the ones I know, it wasn’t like that. We didn’t have that particular [predatory] relationship with girls. It was a lot more the other way around, in some cases. Anyway, so some of the songs and all that were sort of sexist in their own way, but not to be taken that seriously. I don’t think they were malicious or anything.”
Slash previously voiced his concern about men being falsely accused of sexual misconduct in the wake of #MeToo, which has inspired countless women to share stories about experiencing abuse and harassment. “I think the #MeToo movement is definitely justified — it’s actually way overdue,” he told Classic Rock. But obviously, he said, it’s complicated “in the context of being in a rock and roll band. Fortunately, I’m taken, so I’m not dealing with all that, but I have to admit there were times I looked into my past and [as if he’s talking to himself]: ‘Well that was consensual.’”
He continued: “I never had a working relationship with anybody that I was, you know, trying to pressure into having se or anything.
“The problem is that you could be falsely accused of something, but it almost doesn’t matter — it’s out there. Even if you were to get your name cleared, the damage is already done. And that’s pretty sad.”
