From Reuters, ((The Guns N' Roses frontman has just filed a $20 million lawsuit against "Guitar Hero" maker Activision claiming its use of the GNR song "Welcome to the Jungle" violated a deal not to include any imagery of ex-guitarist Saul Hudson (aka Slash) in the popular game. ))
First off, Axl doesn't deserve 20 million for anything these days since he's been milking off the Guns and Roses' (GNR) lifeforce for ages now. Second, what is this deep hate for former band-mate Slash? I know that the entire band helped create what GNR was back then. Does Axl want to rewrite history?
From Reuters, ((In an amusing lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday, Rose and his Black Frog Music claim Activision Blizzard fraudulently induced Rose into authorizing "Jungle" for use in "Guitar Hero III" by telling him during negotiations that it wouldn't feature any reference to the former GNR member or his subsequent band Velvet Revolver.
" began spinning a web of lies and deception to conceal its true intentions to not only feature Slash and VR prominently in 'GH III,' but also promote the game by emphasizing and reinforcing an association between Slash and Guns N Roses and the band's song 'Welcome to the Jungle,'" the complaint states.))
Axl, I hate to break this to you but no one cares about the current members of Guns and Roses. People want to see the old band playing “Welcome to the Jungle” on GH3, not a washed up band leader with imposters playing the music that made the band great years ago. Axl, it is time to get over yourself.
Oh, and then it gets better. Axl hated that Velvet Revolver songs are being featured in the game too. I don't understand why Axl feels threatened by the former members his band. It's been a long time since the original members of GNR broke away from Axl, so it's time to get over it.
I think at this point, Axl knows that he's not going to make much money from his new GNR group, so he's going to sue Activision for 20 million to cash in.
Let me be the first to say, "F' you, Axl."
Bill Gates, you're lame. Please stop.
