(Classic Rock) An 18-year-old Guns N' Roses fan was told to remove his Slash shirt or go home ahead of Axl Rose's appearance in London on Friday. It's a repeat of events first believed to have unfolded in 2010, when gigglers in Canada were ordered to turn Slash shirts inside-out and abandon their top hats.
James Revell attended the GnR show in London's O2 Arena with his younger brother. On arrival door staff instructed him to take off his shirt and said he wouldn't be allowed in if he didn't comply.
"I felt as though my freedom to wear what I want had been taken away from me. I did not react angrily as I didn't want to spoil the show for my brother," The teenager tells NME. "I believed they asked me to do it because Axl Rose has some problem with Slash, and if he saw me wearing the shirt he might have stormed off stage." more on this story
