Sebastian Bach Tackles Knife Wielding Fan At Guns N’Roses Show
February 16, 2010
Chaos was narrowly averted at an intimate Guns N’ Roses concert when a man with a knife was tackled by ex-Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach.
The mystery man casually pulled out what appeared to be a switchblade knife as he walked into the packed and uber-exclusive “Nur Khan’s Rose Bar Sessions” at the Gramercy Park Hotel on Sunday.
But Bach, who was standing near the door, immediately got the stranger thrown out of the bash, which was attended by a host of stars including Mickey Rourke.
A witness reports, “The man walked in while Guns N’ Roses was onstage and pulled out a knife and flicked the blade out. Sebastian, who was standing on a banquette said: ‘Nobody is getting anywhere near my man Axl Rose with a knife,’ and went after him. Security then immediately threw him out. The man appeared to be drunk. It was dealt with so quickly that none of the other guests or the band were aware of it.”
The private Valentine’s Day concert was the hottest ticket in town, with a handpicked crowd including the Strokes’ Fabrizio Moretti and Albert Hammond Jr., Ryan Phillippe, Zoe Kravitz, Josh Lucas, Yigal Azrouel and Sophia Bush, who all packed into the Rose Bar for the DeLeon Tequila-sponsored first of Khan’s series of intimate concerts.
Guns N’ Roses played for two hours for 150 guests, finishing up at 3 a.m. before moving the party upstairs with a group of model and rocker friends until 6 a.m.
When earlier asked by The Post‘s Brian Niemietz if long metal hair will come back in fashion, Bach said, “If it does, people better start now because it takes seven [bleep]ing years to get it this length.” Flaunting his golden locks, Bach added, “And this isn’t some Jessica [bleep]ing Simpson hair extensions — this is the real deal.” A rep for the Rose Bar declined to comment.
