At a Guns N' Roses show on the Gold Coast, Axl Rose slammed an Australian for flying a drone at the front of the stage.
During the show, Axl Rose lost his patience. In between songs, he said: "To the anonymous Mr Drone flyer, you're a f**king c**t!". Later Axl Rose posted on his social media accounts "Had a few drones this leg. Last night (Gold Coast Australia) was probably the most intrusive. Was a bit of a distraction as obviously someone thought it was just ok to be doing that but also it coming that close in front of the stage and then actually over n' on stage."
He adds "According to the police it happens more often than not lately especially with sporting events. It's not something we're all that used to. A lot of impulse reactions went thru everyone's minds that after thinking about it (which when ur live there's really no time to really sort things out like that) didn't make much sense."
Axl concludes with " People were pissed. However much fun anyone's having ur still trying to stay focused n' do ur job n' give the fans the best show u can. Anyway_ we get it can b "fun" to get ur drone bootleg vid but we'd appreciate it if anyone planning to b a drone pirate took the fans n' the band into consideration n' played w/ur toys somewhere else. Big thank you in advance!"
In a recent interview with SiruisXM's Trunk Nation Slash promised fans new "epic" music. â€œI wanna go in and cut a whole brand new record at some point, probably sooner than later,â€ Slash said. â€œBut other than that, we have stuff that weâ€™ve still got to come out.
He adds â€œSo thatâ€™s gonna be coming out piecemeal over the next â€“ I donâ€™t know â€“ over the next few months or something like that. So thatâ€™s basically it. We have one more tour left to do next summer, and then thatâ€™ll free us up to be able to go in and work on a new record.â€
It'll be great to hear a new album from Guns N' Roses, let's just hope it doesn't take ten years to make.
