‘Wasn’t My Gun,’ Says Axl Rose After Guns N’ Roses Detained at Canadian Border
No word on if customs officials found any roses
Guns N’ Roses’ tour was briefly detained at the Canadian border on Friday after customs officials found a gun, evidently belonging to a member of the band’s entourage. “So, we weren’t exactly arrested. We were detained for a while,” joked frontman Axl Rose at GNR’s concert at Rogers Centre in Toronto last night. “They were very nice, they were very understanding. You know, s**t happens. You can forget you have a f**king gun.”
“Wasn’t my gun!” he added, before the band launched into “Out Ta Get Me.” A representative confirmed to Billboard that the incident did indeed take place. The weapon didn’t belong to a member of Guns N’ Roses, the rep said. Watch Rose recount the story in a fan-shot video below.
