Crime Records:

"Causing A Riot"
Stemming from an incident in Montreal in which Metallica singer and gutarist James Hetfield was injured in a pyrotechnics accident.
James suffered 2nd and 3rd degree burns on his arms, legs, and chest after he walked straight into pyrotechnic display by accident.
Axl's show lasted about 45 minutes until he walked off stage and that's when the fans started rioting and tearing the Montreal Centre apart. Since then Guns N Roses have no longer been allowed in Montreal.

A concert in St Louis ended before it even started after he caught someone with a video camera filming them he dived off of the stage and punched the man several times.
Axl eventually stormed off stage and a riot ensued which caused a lot of damga.
The fan settled for $200 and an autograph. :(
