safina ¿ : aaaand the rest of the band just keeps playong haha

primeDecomposition : Just to play devil's advocate here, excessive amounts of cocaine can make one think they have superpowers and can fly.

Jeff Nau : He did his best to make sure his hat stayed on as he jumped off stage

defiantone : What the hell was that, Axl was wearing before He jumped off the stage? lol

Chester Copperpot : "I don't spend my time breaking the law".  ......except for all of those needles full of heroin that he jams into his arm as if it's a pin cushion. 

Charlie Hogan : What is it with St. Louis and all the riots? People in that city seem to enjoy a good riot and really love to get their riot on. They also seem to like setting fire to their own city and burning down the very neighborhoods they live in. I don't understand it.

MrJokerflat : 0:25 Izzy face '-' hehe

Dick Hammerbush : I'll take it God damn it. Lol.

Durval Neto : I always say that diving inspired some Phelps olympic skills ...

Kamuran Deliormanli : 1:56 did anyone noticed the Mona Lisa t-shirt? :)

xtecgo : i think axl is killing him self security guy is the hero

xtecgo : but he is locked up in the fu**ing jail

Patrick Star : hey what happened to liam neeson?

Daniel Asseff : Paparazzi & no security! I know a thing or two about that!

Guilherme Nogueira : 3:10 - 3:21 - 07.08.91 - Starplex Amphitheatre, Dallas, TX

Qrc od macke : Indeed that guy that he jumped at was destroying the whole show.

Regan Piche : This happened in Montreal also

Something Fierce : Axl rose beats someone up in the audience, yet the cops are just talking to him about rock and roll

Bryan Allen : Err...   a  Axl  Hate to be the one to tell ya this, but pinks not your color.  lol

kosta gotsinas : Maybe they should have hired the Hells ,for security.

Edward Hope : With the way he is going recently, a heart attack or diabetes complications could be coming soon

Edward Hope : MTV even had NEWS back then... I was 1 in 1992 and by the time I was old enough to watch it, it was already changing from music videos to reality TV just like every other TV station


Rom Around Town : "He just dropped the mic, we're outta here." - slash

mettalx1 : Cant believe Slash put up with this asshole at all hahaha!

voteZDLR : go aheaaad jump... JUMP!

M Smith : To bad someone don't knock some sense into Asshole Rose. He is a fucking moron

Slicric13 : There was no gun or knife, the guy had a camera and St. Lou says, FU2 Axehole!

VagLazer77 : Media are known for telling the truth ;)

boatman352 : Dude your full of shit. I was at this concert. There was no mattress. And you couldn't script the riot that followed.

MrRawr07 : I think that was the hat he had on his head

TheFutureKing : 1:06 is that the video camera in Axl's hand? He walked off with that guys camera.

TheBigSmuz : lol, Guns n Roses wasn't a one-hit wonder, but regardless, this was a bitch move on his of the reasons I've never been able to respect him.

twistinmemelons : don't take drugs if you can't handle them, pussy

ShellShock794 : It wasn't a knife, it was a damn camera. AXL said it was a knife, virtually every other form of media said it was a camera. You're a dumbass.

Tanatie : @sahand h axl said so. Why would he jump a guy with a knife, he's not batman...and cameras aren't allowed on concerts. Phones didn't have cams back then and gnr had an official photographer.

sahand h : Why would axl care if it was jsut a camera, a lot of people there had cameras. It was a knife,

sahand h : The guy had a knife and axl jumped at him and took it. Damn i wouldn't jump at someone and attack someone holding a knife. IDGAF what anyone says axl rose is a hardcore crazy sob

Joao Santos : no.. not at all

Armory Kittington : If it wasn't for the lack of security in Ferguson, Michael Brown would still be alive. 

cummuncher : Ooh baby...pleeze throw a fit all over me!!!

Mo Ad : What do you mean? He is a jerk, and an idiot.

Ratelzwatel : What is the name of the MTV news host at 1:23?

Toni V. : Perfect Crime

jose silva : perfect crime... looking in some 91 concert... indiana 91 its around here

The Honest Broker : He's a complete fucking idiot and total prick. That's why no one stays with him.

Derrick White : By "Knife", you mean "camera", right?

Tanatie : don't believe everything you hear, especially from people defending their actions ;)

Tanatie : and go home happy after 45 minutes of a concert that usually took 3 hours?
