Published Feb 16, 2010Since fronting Skid Row and having an impressive run as a cast member on Gilmore Girls, Sebastian Bach can now add "saving Axl Rose's life" to his impressive list of achievements. After all, the long-haired rocker stopped the Guns N' Roses front-man from getting stabbed at a recent, intimate New York performance.
Guns N' Roses were performing at the Gramercy Park Hotel on Sunday (February 14) to coincide with New York Fashion Week. The private show had a guestlist that also included Ryan Phillippe, Zoe Kravitz, Mickey Rourke and the Strokes' Albert Hammond Jr. and Fabrizio Moretti.
An eyewitness described the events to the New York Post, saying, "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."
At this point, it's unknown whether the knife-wielder was one of the message board nerds that Rose verbally annihilated last week.
