Axl Sues Slash

GUNS N' ROSES frontman AXL ROSE has filed a lawsuit against his former bandmate SLASH, seeking a federal judge's confirmation of the singer's ownership of his "own creative works". Rose's filing comes in response to a federal suit filed last summer (05) by Slash, real name SAUL HUDSON, who accused the rocker of changing the publisher of the group's copyrighted songs without discussing his decision with his ex-bandmates. In a statement accompanying the suit, Rose's attorneys write, "Axl has, at all times, worked diligently to maintain the artistic integrity of the band by choosing with great care which properties to license Guns N' Roses songs to." The statement also claims Slash showed up at Rose's door last October (05) to offer a truce, and poked fun at his own VELVET REVOLVER bandmates, calling DUFF MCKAGAN "spineless" and singer SCOTT WEILAND a "fraud". The statement continues, "Axl regrets having to spend time and energy on these distractions, but he has a responsibility to protect the Guns N' Roses legacy and expose the truth."

First of all, Axl is a loser! Talk about someone who had it all and threw it all away. Don't call Scott Weiland a fraud. Scott is probably the best front man since Mick Jaggar and is by far a better lyricist and singer. Axl hasn't written a thing worth listening to since GNR Lies came out in 1988! Slash, Matt, and Duff are way better off without that white trash loser.

alright idk who the f**k u are robo but axl is f**ken amazing. where the f**k do u get off dising the illusions like that u did say that duff is way better than axl, well guess what he was a part of the illusions. Another thing axl is def way more original in all his music than scott will ever be. Im sick of f**kers like you not given axl the credit he deserves. GNR was a great band and axl is the only reason it ended up in the direction both good and bad and slash is amazing and i give duff alot of credit to especial with his single album believe in me it was great but there is no way in hell anything like GNR would have happend without axlso again f**k YOU ROBO
