Ex-Guns N’ Roses Singer Axl Rose Sued By Fan For Knocking His Teeth Out

Axl Rose Sued

Axl Rose is being sued by a Guns N’ Roses fan after the singer knocked his teeth out with a microphone at a concert in Australia.

Darren Wright had his two front teeth damaged and also incurred injuries to his mouth after Rose threw his microphone into the crowd during the culmination of the band’s gig at Perth’s Perth Arena on Saturday March 9.

Wright was granted an interview by The West Australian newspaper in which he stated, “With the bright lights and explosions, I couldn’t see anything. The next thing I knew, I was whacked in the mouth. I though I had been punched.”

He then went on to add, “I was quite stunned and it took a few seconds to realise what was going on. I could feel bits of teeth in my mouth. Then someone is climbing through my legs to grab the microphone.”

Discussing the matter, Wright noted, “I don’t think he intended to do it, but it came at me at a fairly flat and hard trajectory. Those cordless microphones are not light. I’m not surprised it didn’t do more damage. At the very least, I want someone to pay to get my teeth fixed.”

Wright has already begun legal proceedings against Rose, and he expects the ordeal to take months to complete. The cost for his teeth to be fixed is thought to be in the region of $5,000.

Andrew McManus, Guns N’ Roses‘ tour promoter, has reportedly contacted Mr. Wright to offer his sincere apologies. McManus even offered to give the microphone to him, signed by Axl Rose.

However, Wright has rebuffed this offer, and the 39-year-old then proclaimed, “I don’t think the microphone is going to fix my teeth. I’m a father of four on a single income doing it hard in Perth.”

Do you Darren Wright deserves compensation?

    yea, id say id be pissed, I love gnr, axl was all I listened too forever, I think he should investigate, make sure it happened, and cut the guy a check, 100 bucks a ticket, then to have your life ruined, when your axl and worth 2-300 million you don't eff someones life up, ive met axl and he doesn't strike me as the type who would screw someone over, I'm sure if it was axls fault he helped the guy out, id bet money on it.

    Look, they offered the guy an autographed microphone, which, to the right collector, could sell for the money to fix his teeth. In the grand scheme of things, shit happens. One of the reasons celebrities become so reclusive and paranoid is situations like this…being sued for everything and anything. The other reasons are paparazzi and tabloids. People forget that, despite celebrity status, they are still humans first.
