GUNS N' ROSES drummer FRANK FERRER had a shock midway through a gig in Los Angeles on Tuesday (19DEC06) - when his drums caught fire.
The Axl Rose-fronted band were playing NOVEMBER RAIN at the city's Gibson Amphitheatre when the incident occurred.
And wise-cracking Rose immediately made a reference to spoof rockumentary This Is Spinal Tap, while continuing to play the piano.
Rose said, "That's a first - the f**king drums caught fire. I like that.
"We might just Spinal Tap the drummer. Blow him up."
There's already an Oscars buzz surrounding this movie.
