Neil Attacks Rose Over Guns Flop
MOTLEY CRUE frontman VINCE NEIL has taken aim at rocker AXL ROSE for failing his GUNS N' ROSES fans and bandmates.
The Girls, Girls, Girls singer claims he's among the fans who were disappointed by the flop that was supposed to be Rose's comeback album, Chinese Democracy in 2008 - and by the rock star's decision to scrap tour dates.
Neil says, "For that (album) to fail was pretty crazy after so many years of being recorded."
And the Motley Crue star is opening up about what he suggests is unprofessionalism on Rose's part, adding, "A buddy of mine went to go play guitar for him. They rehearsed for three months and Axl never once turned up. Rule number one: show up!
"He's been doing that for many years. Finally I think the fans just went, 'F**k it - can't do this anymore.' You can't be a fan when you can't see the band."
Chinese Democracy was Guns N' Roses' first album since 1993's The Spaghetti Incident.
