It seems destruction can follow in the wake of Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose even when he's simply trying to be a polite gentleman.

According to the singer, his much-publicized 2006 nightclub brawl with fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger began with Rose simply trying to help out a fellow party-goer. As he told KROQ (via USA Today), "I moved his girlfriend's drink so it wouldn't spill... it was the most surreal thing, I think, that's ever happened to me in my life... he just kept smacking me." Rose later performed a short set at the event, making a witty and inspired dedication of the song 'You're Crazy' to his recent sparring partner Hilfiger.
