When guys try to be romantic!! After lighting the candles in the couple's apartment, filled it with balloons and pouring out wine in glasses, the unidentified man went "round the corner to collect his fiance-to-be, ready for the romantic moment" and "came back to find the apartment on fire and three fire engines on the way!"

Last night we were called to a marriage proposal that didn't quite go to plan. Want to hear more? Yes, we thought you would. Read on... 👇

So, here's the deal. Look closely at these photos and you'll see lots of burnt out tea lights. Hundreds of them. These were lit by a chap in his Sheffield flat, as he prepared to pop the question to his girlfriend.

Balloons were up and wine glasses were at the ready. However, after going round the corner to collect his fiancé-to-be, ready for the romantic moment, he came back to find the flat on fire and three fire engines on the way! 😱

Fortunately this was dealt with quickly by our crews and nobody was injured. The best news? She still said YES! 💍

However, this could have been worse, and there's a really important fire safety lesson here. Candles are great, but they can be SO dangerous, so please be careful:

🕯 extinguish them properly when you've done
❌ don't put them near flammable items, like curtains
💍 don't leave 100s of tea lights unattended

And that's all, folks. What remains for us to say is all the best to the happy couple - we await our wedding invite! 🙌

This rocks! 🤘🏼

I know I get really excited about posting and sharing great experiences with y’all, as I’m always grateful for all these opportunities.

But this one?
This is a big one for me.

This is beyond my wildest dreams, in so many ways.

If you had told my younger teenage self that I’d be Performing one of most iconic songs in the history of Rock and Roll, Bohemian Rhapsody AND attempting to replace all the vocals including the vocal opera with an ALL GUITAR version AND with 3 out of 5 guitarists being my true guitar heroes that changed my life, Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen AND the 3rd being Brian May himself, who recorded and performed this historic song and passionate guitar solo with his Legendary band Queen. AND THEN throw in one of my generations ripping guitar peers, Zakk Wylde, and top it off with this generations innovative guitar wizardry of Tosin Abasi...

The young ME would’ve said... get out of my f**king room and shut the door so I can get back to studying the entire Queen catalog, Vai’s Passion and Warfare and Yngwie’s Rising Force.

Yeah, this is just special.

Not only for me , but for the sake of music and guitarists.

You see, this proves whilst we can all do amazing solo things on our own, these monster virtuoso players and guitar icons are willing to put their own history and ego aside to pull off something bigger than themselves.
Something we know we are incapable of doing alone.
Something that can only be done with 6 of us coming together.

Something special.

Humbly, all the video performances you’ve seen from the AXSTV show, I edited myself.
Not cause I wanted to, but because I had to.
I wanted you to see them the way I saw them in my head and heart.

Unfortunately, I ran out of time on this one right before it aired, as editing this monster was like climbing Mount Everest, Hard. But once you’re up there worth every sleepless night getting it done.

So I guess this is the “world premiere”of the Directors Cut.

Brian... on behalf of the Generation aXe boys, thanks for making our dream come true.

Why can I not find the winner info for the camping give away?
hi guys coming home to visit soon
Regarding the Clorox Wipes shortage, I heard it's because the material is being used for PPE and shortage of them to make the wipes 🤷‍♀️
You need to post that "Don't Mask debate" here on your page! Just heard it on the radio. Funny stuff!
Great job on post in that new Dennis DE young song… it says it all
oct 14, 1988 at the coliseum, you guys had a pink floyd contest- debbie vincent and dea mckay took pics, are those old photos online anywhere? jast saw some old pics on the coliseum page, made me wonder what WONE did with all their concert/contest/etc pics over the years...i'm sure you guys had to have hundreds from the coliseum... I only got one pic that day, and we got front row seats that day from ONE, and by dumb luck, Wayne Isham who was filming the shows saw us, had us take it inside before the show and fly around in front of the stage - then a half hour before the show, he brought David Gilmour and Scott Page (who still promises to get me a copy of the tape he shot that day, 30 years ago) out to see it :) Anyways, bet you guys have TONS of cool pics there somewhere, would be neat to see some of the old shows...sure miss the coliseum...except for the bathrooms
:( My son, Zach... JOURNEY was supposed to start tonight. @ Blossom Music center. This would have been his first ever concert. ~ Cancelled: COVID 19 #WONE 97.5
