Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose dined with Angus Young and his other AC/DC bandmates earlier this week at Old Homestead Steakhouse in the Meatpacking District in New York before AC/DC’s show at Madison Square Garden.
Page Six reports that Rose was overheard telling his pals about how he first came to the restaurant 24 years ago.
“Axl explained that, one night on tour, bandmate Slash was so inebriated that he peed [in] the bed in the hotel where they were staying.”
“Slash’s girlfriend was so grossed out, she slept in the suite’s parlor.” When Rose encountered the young lady, they chatted and he mentioned he loved steak.
“She told him to check out Old Homestead . . . the band went a couple nights later and dropped $22,000.” This time around, Rose mentioned he doesn’t drink on tour, and Young stuck to ginger ale.
The New York Daily News reports that Rose said the restaurant’s surrounding area was “rough and loaded with transvestites” when he first started partying there.
“The street outside the restaurant was lined with eight black Suburban SUVs,” says a New York Daily News insider, who explains the restaurant had to call the police to help manage the growing crowd. “There was a near riot when Axl and Angus Young emerged from the restaurant to get some air.”
“Axl had no trouble devouring every bite,” said an insider of his meal.
As far as Rose’s relationship with Slash, Page Six’s spy revealed: “Axl said as he gets older, he understands Slash better.”
