Stinson to quit Guns N' Roses?
2010-09-01 by Dr Dave De Sylvia STAFF | 91 Comments

Guns N' Roses bassist Tommy Stinson is considering his future with the band after a catastrophic show in Dublin tonight during which the group left the stage for almost 45 minutes at the behest of frontman Axl Rose.

Sputnikmusic witnessed Stinson in a heated argument with road manager Del James following the show, which saw the Los Angeles band take to the stage an hour and a half late before leaving after just four songs.

Frontman Axl Rose had threatened to leave when a plastic bottle was thrown on stage at the beginning of 'Welcome to the Jungle,' and stormed off stage when a second was thrown at the conclusion of 'Mr. Brownstone.'

Stinson was heard to shout: "That's my fucking family up there and he put us in danger again.

"He can't keep doing this. Nothing happened this time, but next time we might not be so lucky.

"This has to stop."


The band returned to stage after a long hiatus, during which a third of the paying audience left, and performed almost a full set. They finally wrapped up at 1am, an hour and half later than the venue's scheduled curfew.

Just came home from this show, what a joke. I knew something would go down and all, but it still sucks to have paid for a ticket for a concert but end up seeing a whiny drama queen. RIP Guns N Roses

Who exactly is Sputnikmusic and what the hell were they doing at a G n R show?

2) You're an idiot if you pay to see G N' R now and DON'T expect this shit to happen. Worse, you're an idiot if you JOIN G N' R and don't expect this shit to happen.

1) Chinese Democracy was far from god awful, but it is sad that this is all he can do to stay 'current'

2) Well is it really too much to hope to get what you pay for, no matter who you go to see? Tickets for the 02 are not cheap by any means

My friend is a huge Gun N' Roses fan. While I admit that their music is fantastic, their recent performances have been dreadful. Such as Reading fest, which felt like a shell of their former self.

I'd hate for them to be my heroes at this point (Well Axl). They just don't care anymore.

What's going on in Dublin are they a bunch of morons or is the O2 handing out tickets for free to make it look like they "sold out" .First Cat Stevens, then the Italian Opera in Decembre, now this? There is something seriously wrong with the venue and the authorities need to address it. There are advanced ways to monitor, anticipate, and regulate crowd behavior-yet the staff and security at O2 pretend it is entirely out of their hands. This is not a world-class venue I wouldn't go to a dog show there!!!!
