Guns N’ Roses has long been called “the world’s most dangerous band.” Axl Rose definitely has a reputation of being a bit of a bad boy after punching David Bowie, hitting fans and challenging people to fights. This is something right up their alley.
There is a long time super fan named Rick Dunsford who loves Guns N’ Roses so much he has tattoos of their autographs and sees them multiple times a year. He’s known to travel long and far to see them and has even purchased thousands of dollars of memorabilia. Dunsford received word that in Charlotte people were looking for him. Security had photos of him and asking fans in the crowd if he had been seen.
Rick apparently reached out to the band after that incident and let them know he had tickets to multiple shows and would be attending the Kansas show. While he was in line he received an email from Guns N’ Roses’ legal representative telling him he is not allowed at any of the band’s performances. That email was immediately followed by security confronting him (see below). It turns out the band is blaming him for a leak of unreleased Guns N’ Roses music.
Two and a half months ago, he and some other fans gathered $15,000 and purchased the music from the individual who bought a locker that belonged to the band’s former rep.
The band’s team reached out to him asking for the music back, an agreement was made, but they later voided the agreement. The original seller was continuing to sell to other individuals, and there was a massive leak. So pretty much, Dunsford is being blamed for it.
