Axl Rose Suing Activision for $20 Million

Guns 'N Roses frontman Axl Rose filed a lawsuit against Activision Blizzard today claiming the company violated a deal by using imagery of guitarist Saul Hudson (aka Slash) while also including the band's hit song "Welcome to the Jungle" in Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock.

Wow... I'm not sure who I want to lose more.

It sucks to see any company get sued, although...Activision has milked many franchises. Fortunately, not "all" of said games were just yearly updates.

I dislike Activision... but I hate Axl Rose. Axl is a D-BAG, he is the reason there is no more Guns n Roses. Hope the asshole loses and spends all his money losing. I don't care if he's right... he's a d-bag.

Um, no he's not... Every one played their own part in it disbanding. However, I'd say drugs were the biggest reason they aren't together anymore.

Drugs and Axl's massive ego.

Always the same douchebag... just quit it Axl! Need to pay for that Chinese Democracy album?

As if Axl Rose wasn't rich enough....

and they violated a agreement.

Either way, for the past couple years Kurt Cobain has been making more money, and he's dead.

The fact that Axl Rose still calls his band "Guns N' Roses" is a joke. He is the only original member in the band, and by reading the article he clearly does not want anything to do with any former bandmates. He also didn't want GNR's most mainstream song "Welcome To The Jungle" in the game? Why the hell not?

Today, there is no Gun's N Roses, it's just Axl Rose N' Friends.

No, it's not that he didn't want the song in the game, in fact, he wanted it to be but he said they could not use any prior member's "likeness" as well.

So, they snuck in Slash and that is why he is pissed.

SnuggleBandit4931d ago

he should just join coon and friends at this point lol

Eh, I don't see a problem in this. Anyway I can't wait for a new album! CD was pretty good, but I know they have lots of material out there.

*Edit* I see a lot of Axl hate. Probably due to the media's vendetta against him for not whoring himself to get them money. He's a nice guy in person.

Axl's a c#nt... 6 out of 6 ex-Guns members agree. And if you know anything about being in a band, if the bass player thinks someone's a c#nt, then they are definitely a c#nt.

That's why Duff recently played with him on stage and had dinner with him afterwords? Man, you people think you know everything about a person without ever meeting him.
