Axl Rose Borrows Former Adversary Dave Grohl’s Motorized Throne

After Dave Grohl broke his leg by falling off the stage last year, he performed a number of Foo Fighters shows seated on a giant motorized throne. Axl Rose recently injured his foot and was told by his doctor not to put too much weight on it, so at Guns N’ Roses’ reunion show in Las Vegas last night he performed sporting a cast while perched atop a giant motorized throne that looked suspiciously like Dave Grohl’s giant motorized throne. As it turns out, it was Dave Grohl’s giant motorized throne — near the end of the set, roadies came onstage to remove a covering from the throne, revealing the prominent Foo Fighters logo underneath. “That’s a good advertisement,” Axl joked.

Axl Rose and Kurt Cobain famously feuded in the early ’90s. After declining Rose’s invitation for Nirvana to open GN’R’s 1992 tour with Metallica, Cobain (along with Courtney Love) got into a backstage dustup with the singer at the MTV Video Music Awards. Nirvana’s performance of “Lithium” that night ended with Dave Grohl joking, “Hi, Axl! Hi, Axl!” You can also see Cobain mocking Rose in last year’s Montage Of Heck documentary. But Grohl and some members of Guns N’ Roses stayed on good terms.

Also last night, Guns N’ Roses played Use Your Illusion I’s “Coma” for the first time in 23 years — just two days short of exactly 23 years, actually. Watch footage of that and the giant motorized throne below.
