Rose Ignored Doctors Orders
LATEST: GUNS N' ROSES frontman Axl Rose was forced to leave the band's London gig on Sunday (30JUL06) after suffering from low blood pressure. The rocker was taken ill during the final show of the band's European tour after a doctor had advised the singer not to perform. Rose became unwell early on Sunday morning after the band performed at the British capital's Wembley Arena, followed by a surprise show at a nightclub. A doctor who later visited the singer in his hotel room diagnosed low blood pressure and low blood sugar and advised him against taking the stage on Sunday evening. However, the hellraising frontman ignored the advice and was rushed off the stage at London's Wembley Arena after managing to perform for two hours. The SWEET CHILD O' MINE singer says, "I approached this last show with equal parts determination, obligation, responsibility and insanity. It was an amazing night. "I want to thank everyone in Europe and the UK for inspiring us and for giving us the opportunity to play for them."
