Rockers Guns N' Roses are being sued by a logistics company for $107,000 (£534,000), according to tmz.com.

The gossip website obtained news of the lawsuit which was filed in New Jersey in which Starlift Logistics allege that they were hired to provide services for a 2006 tour of the band, who have been rocking, partying and backcombing since 1985.

Staflift Logistics says they provided transportation and touring services for the Sweet Child of Mine band along with supplying other necessary bits for a massive stadium store including musical instruments, production equipment and set gear.

But putting together a big tour for a big band with very big hair doesn't come cheap. A court document on the website shows that Starlift Logisitics claim that lead singer Axl Rose and his posse owe around $107,000 (£534,000) in costs.

One of the most successful rock bands of all time, Guns N' Roses are thought to have sold over 90 million records worldwide and have penned some of the most famous songs in rock such as Welcome to the Jungle and Paradise City.

Fronted by Rose, the band has seen many changes during their 21 year history including changes to the line-up. Original member Slash, worshipped by guitar devotees worldwide, left the band in 1996.

The band has not yet commented on the reports.
