There’s no doubt that artists sometimes bump into crazy fans during live performances. The most usual incident is that sometimes fans from the audience somehow manage to pass the security and jump on stage while their favorite artists perform. Since Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash is considered one of the greatest guitarists in history, he often comes across people who are willing to do anything to get a closer look.
Although the security frequently stops these fans before they reach their favorite musician, there was a time when a Slash fan jumped on stage, knocked the guitarist down, and caused his guitar to break. We’re here today to see those moments and how the musician reacted following the incident.
