Video: Axl Rose Attacking Audience Member at Riverport Amphitheater


Sadly I wasn't at Riverport (now Verizon) Amphitheater back in July 1991 when Axl Rose jumped off the stage to attack a fan with a camera.

I've heard the retelling of the story many times over the years, but this is the first footage of the melee I've ever seen. 

In the words of Axl Rose, "Thanks for the lame-ass security. I'm going home."
