Guns N' Roses Kick Off The Not In This Lifetime Tour With Dave Grohl's Throne
Axl Rose wasn't going to let a broken foot get in the way of Guns N' Roses kicking off their Not In This Lifetime Tour in Las Vegas Friday night.
As the lights dimmed and the intro music started at the T-Mobile Arena, Rose was wheeled onstage in the very same throne Dave Grohl used used during last year's Foo Fighters tour after he broke his leg falling off the stage last June in Sweden.

Rose – who has had a plate and screws inserted in his foot to help the healing process – thanked Grohl and also said he had nothing to do with the fact that the distinctive “FF” logo on the throne was covered. When the band came back for the encore, the covering was removed proving it was indeed Dave Grohl's throne. Rose again thanked the Foo Fighters frontman and said “I can see how you could get used to this”.
Dave Grohl is just everybody's buddy.
