Axl Rose Comments on Sweden Incident

Axl Rose’s label has released a statement responding to the coverage of Rose’s arrest in Stockholm, Sweden after he engaged in a scuffle in the lobby of his hotel and allegedly bit a security guard. “We had a great gig in Stockholm and I am not going to let this incident spoil that,” Rose said, referring to the Guns N’ Roses gig that took place earlier that evening. “My assistant Beta and I were talking in the lobby of the hotel when security started to give us a hard time. My only concern was to make sure she was okay.” According to the statement, released late on June 27, following Rose’s release from the Stockholm prison, “the Swedish authorities are no longer pursuing this matter.”
