He tells Billboard.com, "Universal and my then-manager decided to release my last album during Brit Awards week, an unwinnable situation for someone like me, who is the exact opposite of Brit Awards wretchedness.

Rose hit back with a countersuit, alleging Azoff attempted to sabotage his career after he refused to reunite with the band's original members, including Slash and Duff MCKagan. He demanded more than $5 million (£3.13 million) in damages for breach of fiduciary duty, constructive fraud and breach of contract.
But the two warring parties have now reached a deal to prevent the case from going to trial.

The report, published in the New York Post on Tuesday (22Mar11), claimed the Umbrella hitmaker had been urged by tour experts to axe a string of dates on her Loud trek, staged by concert promotion firm Live Nation, due to poor sales.
It was alleged just 3,700 tickets had been sold for the singer's gig at T.D. Garden in Boston, Massachusetts in July (11) - adding she will need at least 15,000 to break even.
A source told the New York Post's Page Six column, "It has been a big disappointment. The ticket sales in big U.S. cities like Boston are so bad, they will barely cover basics like the lighting and other arena costs. Tour managers are begging local radio stations to do giveaways."

The new GUNS N' ROSES album will be released on November 24th, it has been announced.
One of the most eagerly-awaited albums in rock history, the record will be the band's first since the simultaneous 1991 releases of Use Your Illusion I and II.

Two tracks from the album - Shackler's Revenge and If The World - had already been debuted in the Rock Band 2 videogame and the film Body of Lies respectively.
And after Radio 1's Sara Cox provided the first play of the lead single from an album more than a decade in the making, Black Frog and Geffen Records have confirmed the release date.
"The release of Chinese Democracy marks a historic moment in rock 'n' roll," said Irving Azoff and Andy Gould, Guns N' Roses' co-managers, "and we're launching with a monumental campaign that matches the groundbreaking sound of the album itself.
"Guns N' Roses fans have every reason to celebrate, for this is only the beginning."
Steve Berman, president of sales and marketing for Interscope and Geffen A&M Records, said the group had "redefined" the American rock band.
