Axl Rose Sued for Hitting Fan With Microphone

Axl Rose Sued for Hitting Fan With Microphone
Posted March 14th, 2013 @ 8:41am

At the end of a Guns N' Roses concert in Australia, singer Axl Rose threw his wireless microphone into the crowd.  It hit Darren Wright.

Wright's two front teeth were damaged and he'd like for Axl to pay to get them fixed.  The fan is suing the singer and has hired representation.  But, Wright says he harbors no ill feelings:

"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 surprised it didn't do more damage.  At the very least, I want someone to pay to get my teeth fixed."

A dentist told Wright that it would likely cost at least $5,000 to repair his teeth.  A promoter offered to give him a microphone signed by Rose.  Wright says, "I don't think the microphone is going to fix my teeth."
