Axl Rose wasn’t the only Guns N’ Roses member partial to fisticuffs. Drummer Steven Adler found himself in a fight during a tour with Alice Cooper in 1987.

After getting into a barroom brawl, Adler broke his hand after a misguided punch connected not with a dude’s face, but a street light. Unable to play drums after breaking his hand, Adler was replaced with Cinderella drummer Fred Coury until the GN’R drummer had recovered from the pole-punching.
