Don't mess with musicians when another musician is around. Former Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach saved the day when he saw a man flip open a switchblade knife during a super-secret Guns N' Roses show in New York City over the weekend.

According to a report on Page 6 of the New York Post, the band was playing a very exclusive show for 150 invited guests Sunday night, when Bach noticed the man with the knife.

The story said:

A witness reports, "The man walked in while Guns N' Roses was onstage and pulled out a knife and flicked the blade out. Sebastian, who was standing on a banquette said: 'Nobody is getting anywhere near my man Axl Rose with a knife,' and went after him. Security then immediately threw him out. The man appeared to be drunk. It was dealt with so quickly that none of the other guests or the band were aware of it."

No one appears to know who the man was. But it will be interesting to find out, considering the show was so hush-hush, and the guest list was so exclusive. Among those in attendance was actor Mickey Rourke.
