I Should've Known Axl Was A Diva

.....when I first saw him with teased hair in the "Welcome To The Jungle" video back in the late eighties.  Fast forward to 2010 and he walks off stage after Dublin fans throw bottles in his direction.  Take a look.

The fans were upset because Axl and the boys started their set about an hour late.  Boos and bottles followed and Axl stopped the show.  Here's my question:  if you write a song called "Welcome To The Jungle," shouldn't you be taking bottles to the face at every show?  Isn't "bleed" a lyric in the song?

I wouldn't want to take bottles to the face, but then again, I'm not the one making thousands of dollars playing in a cover band.  To be fair, Axl has probably softened over the years and his reflexes aren't that quick as say, a shoe-dodging George W. Bush.

If anything, I hope this teaches Axl to be more punctual, and to apologize for being late when necessary.  If he's going to act like a jerk, he shouldn't be surprised when others do likewise.
