A Guns N’Roses fan is pursuing legal action against Axl Rose due to an injury the fan suffered while at a concert in Australia.
Axl Rose threw his microphone into the crowd during the concert, and the mic then acted like a trajectory and hit the fan, Darren Wright, in the face. Wright’s teeth were damaged and are now in need of dental repair.
The fan doesn’t think that Axl Rose intended to hit him with the microphone, but he still does think that someone should pay his dental bill to get his teeth fixed. The Guns N’Roses tour promoter offered Wright a signed microphone so he would not pursue legal action, but Wright’s dentist estimated the dental bill to be over $5,000.
