Glum Axl Rose takes photo with Redskins’ Dan Snyder, Jay Gruden (pic)


Guns N’ Roses continued the band’s comeback tour Sunday night at FedEx Field, which afforded some VIP treatment for a few members of the NFL team that calls the stadium home.

Among the pre-concert “festivities” Guns ‘N Roses rontman Axl Rose had to endure was a photo-op with Redskins owner Daniel Snyder and wife Tanya, general manager Scot McCloughan and head coach Jay Gruden.

Evidence of the meet-and-greet between the rocker and Redskins dignitaries was posted to the team’s official Twitter account. And given the perceptively glum disposition exhibited by Rose in the photo, the case can be made he wasn’t too enthused about it.

Rock out. Man, it sure looks like Rose has been been dancin’ with Mr. Brownstone before taking a pic with Mr. Snyder. Or something.

There’s no word on how much Snyder and company enjoyed the concert, but it appears that Rose — one of the more unpredictable and cantankerous rockers of all-time — got over the pre-show annoyances and enjoyed performing during the two-hour-plus concert.

Paradise City, indeed.
