From the Riverport Riot to owning a fleet of limos to being a dad, Stump Stephenson has lived a life — or several.

Axl Rose tackled Stephenson after he took a photo in the crowd at a Guns N' Roses concert, setting off a chain of events that would lead to the Riverport Riot. In this week's Riverfront Times cover story, Stephenson recounts his time in court with Axl Rose, but also what his day to day life looks like. Photographer Reuben Hammer documents six months with Stephenson: benefit concerts, wet t-shirt contests and more.

You can read the full cover story here. Stephenson's story is the first of a new recurring feature that will explore Missouri and all it has to offer, titled "Missouriland."
