Billy Joel Looks Back, Riot at Guns N’ Roses-Metallica Show – August 8 in Rock History

  • First of all WTF does Nixon resigning have to do with Classic Rock?And what the fuck was Metallica supposed to do?  Keep playing while James was on fire?  Noone to blame for the riots but Axl.

  • James was burnt and couldn't finish. Guns couldn't have made it for another half hour but all made them wait 2 hours. Then all threw the gig. Blame axl

  • No, it wasn't because they felt cheated by both of the headliners.  I'm sure they understood that James couldn't finish the show because he was so badly burned.  GnR was different.  That was a short set because of one of Axl's temper tantrums.  That was what pissed them off
