Slash Tackled During Concert -- Video
Both Slash and his wife have commented on the incident on the Web. On his Facebook page, Slash wrote, "What'd I say? Rowdy crowd for sure. But amazing! The guy who nailed me didn't take me down but he busted my poor [guitar]. Ah well, it was a kick-ass rock show in the first order!"
Slash's wife Petra was a bit less diplomatic: "The guy came down from the rafters, ran up to Slash and grabbed him during his 'Sweet Child O' Mine' solo. Broke the head on the guitar. [The security guard] Junior grabbed the a--hole, they both fell to the floor. Junior hit his head hard and the Milan security did nothing! Kicked him out but didn't arrest him. I love Italy! But f--- those security promoters for doing nothing! Slash could have seriously [hurt himself] and Junior did. It's not right! What [are] they there for? As decoration? It's not right."
