Axl to grind

Speaking of 90's has-beens, I almost missed this story out of New York.

It seems Axl Rose, the sole remaining original member of Guns N' Roses, got his ass kicked by fashion force Tommy Hilfiger in a New York nightclub last weekend.

Ostensibly, the brawl was about Rose moving the drink of Hilfiger's main squeeze. But according to the NYPost, there's more to the story (isn't that always the case?)
"...the combatants have been at odds since Rose started dating Diane O'Connor, the ex-wife of Hilfiger's adopted brother, denim designer Michael H.

One source even went so far as to claim that the Hilfiger brothers had made a "pact" to pummel Rose on sight."
Rose tried to laugh off the incident. But if I were him, I'd be super embarrassed at getting the beat down from glorified tailor. What could be worse than being Tommy' Hilfiger's bitch?

The way I see it, his only recourse is to pull a Tony Soprano and pick a fight with the biggest, baddest bloke at fashion week (assuming he can a big, bad bloke at fashion week).

  1. That's fucking hysterical!!

    "Guns and Roses"?

    Maybe he should consider changing the band's name to "Purses and Pansies".

    Not that there's anything wrong with that.

  2. I love Rose, and besides what would you be saying if Axl had
    pelted little Tommy....everyone would really be screaming. So I consider Rose a gentleman and Tommy mere pantie waste.

  3. Of course you're right, Vas. If Rose would have clocked the 65-year-old fashion designer, we'd all be saying "Oooh , big man beating up a 65-year-old fashion designer" all sarcastic-like.

    He's damned if he does, damned if he doesn't. I gues every Rose has it's thorns (okay, different hair band reference).


Your turn to riff...
