Axl Rose sued after knocking fan's teeth out with microphone

Bericht door georgtje » 18 mar 2013, 07:00

Darren Wright was hit the face with the mic when Rose tossed it into the crowd at the end of the band's gig in Perth, Australia on Saturday.

The impact smashed his two front teeth, causing damage he claims will take months to repair - and he wants the rocker to foot the £3,500 bill

Wright, 39, told the West Australian newspaper: "With the bright lights and explosions, I couldn't see anything.

"The next thing I knew, I was whacked in the mouth. I thought I had been punched. I was quite stunned and it took a few seconds to realise what was going on.

"I could feel bits of teeth in my mouth. Then someone is climbing through my legs to grab the microphone.

"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."

Tour promoter Andrew McManus reportedly reached out to Wright and offered him a signed microphone as a souvenir - but he turned down the offer.

The pest controller said: "In reality I don't think the microphone is going to fix my teeth or pay for the dentist. I'm a father of four on a single income doing it hard in Perth."
