Axl Responds

I’m sure you heard about the incident earlier this week where Axl Rose bit a Swedish hotel security guard and was so intoxicated he had to be handcuffed and placed in a holding cell for the night.

Well, Rose was released yesterday, paid a fine, and issued this statement today (via LiveDaily):

“We had a great gig in Stockholm and I am not going to let this incident spoil that. My assistant Beta and I were talking in the lobby of the hotel when security started to give us a hard time. My only concern was to make sure she was OK.”

Swedish police are “no longer pursuing this matter.”

So Axl won’t be raking leaves in Park Stockholm, unfortunately.

Guns ‘N Roses are on worldwide tour in support of Chinese Democracy, which will never be released.
