Sebastian Bach saves Axl Rose's LIFE!

CP Images Sebastian Bach is totally Axl Rose's hero. The New York Post's Page Six says the ex-Skid Row frontman tackled a knife-wielding man at a Guns N Roses gig at the Gramercy Park Hotel on Sunday. 

Apparently the man "casually pulled out what appeared to be a switchblade knife as he walked into the packed and uber-exclusive" show. But Bach immediately leapt into action, hair metal ninja style (or so I imagine) and went after him.

A witness told the Post, "The man walked in while Guns N' Roses was onstage and pulled out a knife and flicked the blade out. Sebastian, who was standing on a banquette said: 'Nobody is getting anywhere near my man Axl Rose with a knife,' and went after him. Security then immediately threw him out. The man appeared to be drunk. It was dealt with so quickly that none of the other guests or the band were aware of it." (See? Stealthy!)

Axl Rose punches photog. Says, "He hit my mother!" Releases, retracts statement.

Restated from E! Online, the first statement read, "Axl Rose, lead singer for the legendary rock group Guns N' Roses, was unhurt last evening when he was accosted by an unruly group of paparazzi at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)…

"Mr. Rose, who was about to enter a security checkpoint at LAX when the altercation took place, was approached by a group of unchecked and unruly photographers, who became aggressive with the singer and female members of the traveling group."
