Model Behaviour From GNR?

The Daily Record claims that the band have hired models to fill out the front row of their Glasgow gig

According to the report, which you can read HERE, the band contacted a model agency to demand 20 of their prettiest girls for their gig at Glasgow’s SECC on Friday.

The paper says that the band’s promoter invited 20 models, from All Talent – The Sonia Scott Agency, to also join them backstage after the concert.

A source apparently told the paper: "Axl and the rest of the band love girls from Scotland and they want to party in Glasgow. No other band has ever requested models from the agency to party with a rock band before, so this a first."

The band have denied that the story is true, however, suggesting that the idea was not theirs.

Guitarist Bumblefoot explained to Classic Rock Magazine: "I think the story is presented dishonestly and it’s disrespectful to the families of band members. They deserve to be respected and defended.”

He continues: "A lot of fans feel that access is being granted to people who haven’t earned it. By that I mean standing loyally by the band for years, buying a ticket, waiting on sore feet for hours and hours, cheering until they have no voice left, staying to the end and trying to find a way home after public transport has been shut down. And doing it again the next time we’re in town.

"I have nothing against the models. They were offered a fun night out and they deserve equal treatment from the band that any person at the show should get.

"But the band did not request it. This stuff comes from other people that are offering a good time by whatever means they have – and that’s fine.

"I just feel the need to speak up on behalf of our families and the fans, because they’re respected. I don’t want them feeling like they’re not.”
