On Monday Duff McKagan Reflects On Guns N' Roses Infamous Donington Appearance was a top story.

The band's controversial Donington appearance saw two fans crushed to death as a result of the weather conditions.

But despite the tragedy, GnR's show which took place on the same day Iron Maiden played to a record-breaking crowd of 107,000 ensured star status in the UK.

"What's kind of lost is that people think Guns N' Roses headlined Donington. We played at noon," McKagan says. "We were really low on the bill and we were just happy to be here." - more on this story
