Story by Jack Foley

GUNS N’ Roses lead singer Axl Rose paid a surprise visit to the Teenage Cancer Trust Ward at University College Hospital, London, it has emerged.

The singer made the trip after completing the band’s European tour at Wembley Arena on July 30, and brightened the days of every teenager he chatted to.

Commenting on the NME’s website, Simon Davies, CEO of the Teenage Cancer Trust Ward, said: “We were so touched that Axl wanted to visit the Teenage Cancer Trust ward in London.

“Axl spent time speaking with each of the patients individually asking about their diagnosis and treatment, and what they enjoyed doing when they were not in hospital.

“Speaking with patients after Axl’s visit, I got a real sense of just how excited they were to have met him and how much it lifted their spirits.”

The Teenage Cancer Trust (TCT) has always maintained strong links with the music industry.

Every year, The Royal Albert Hall plays host to a week of high-profile shows produced by The Who lead singer Roger Daltrey. This year’s line-up included Razorlight and The Cure (for their only UK appearance).
