G&R Lawsuit


Two former members of the rock band Guns N' Roses have sued frontman Axl Rose for allegedly naming himself sole administrator of the group's copyrights.

The suit was filed Aug. 17 in federal court by Slash and Duff, otherwise known as Saul Hudson and Michael McKagan. It accuses Rose of profiting from their revenue shares to the tune of about $500,000 a year.

The suit claims Rose directed the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers to send all publishing royalties to his publishing company, bypassing the band's other partners. Rose is "suffering an apparent attack of arrogance and ego. He is no longer willing to acknowledge the contributions of his former partners and bandmates in having created some of rock's greatest hits," the suit said.

You Said

I hate Axl. His antics are legendary in breaking up what could have been one of rock 'n roll's greatest bands.

And his voice is completely shot and non-existent these days. It's time to give it up, Axl. And give your former bandmates the cash they deserve. Hmm, I wonder if I can get the scoop from my contacts at ASCAP on this one ....

Let us know if you can get any insider scoop, Iceman!

I thought that was Da Brat. Are they distant relatives?
