When Guns N’ Roses was at their peak, Axl wasn’t exactly the most stable guy in music. Anything would set him off.
In 1989, the band booked a Hollywood club called the Cathouse to shoot a video for their song, “It’s So Easy,” which featured Axl’s then-girlfriend, Erin Everly, who was completely outfitted in fetish gear. For some reason, David Bowie was at the shoot and allegedly started flirting with Erin.
Axl went ballistic. He not only chased Bowie out of the club and down the street, but he also kept yelling “I’m going to kill you!” Bowie returned to the club with Ola Hudson, mother of Slash, and someone who made stage costumes back in the day.
Eventually, it was all settled when Bowie invited Axl out for dinner.
