It’s Friday again, which means it’s time to look back at what our favourite musicians have been sharing on Twitter over the past seven days. This week, Axl Rose gets caught up in a Tokyo earthquake while touring with Guns N’ Roses, Franz Ferdinand appear to be split on whether Rage Against The Machine should be Christmas Number One or not and Julian Casablancas gets caught up in the spirit of The Grifters.

Here’s some of the best Tweets from the past week, spelling mistakes and all
