Axl Rose Smacked With Million Dollar Lawsuit

Former Guns ‘N’ Roses members Slash and Duff McKagan are suing their former frontman for at least $1 million, according to a report on Celebrity Justice. His former mates accuse Axl Rose of turning down lucrative film licensing offers for old GNR songs even though the singer doesn’t have controlling interest in the material. MTVnews.com reports the makers of We Were Soldiers, Death To Smoochy, Old School and Just Married were among those who had approached Rose regarding the GNR material. The suit also claims that Rose shot down (pun intended) negotiations with the producers of Black Hawk Down, who were interested in using the classic hit “Welcome To The Jungle.” Rose allegedly wanted to re-record the song with his new band, as to keep Slash and McKagan from raking in any dough. It all sounds pretty slimy to me. I can’t wait for the VH1 Rock Star Feuds episode on this one.
