Legendary rockers GUNS N' ROSES are suing GEFFEN RECORDS to block the release of their forthcoming GREATEST HITS album.

Former members of the IT'S SO EASY band - singer Axl Rose, guitarist Slash and bassist DUFF McKAGAN - have filed the lawsuit because they say the disc is "unauthorised".

They want the compilation - which contains classics including WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE and PARADISE CITY - pulled from release as they claim Geffen didn't consult them about the track listing.

In a statement, Rose says the album doesn't contain the Los Angeles wildmen's best music and it's therefore "fundamentally flawed".
