Axl Rose Suing Activision

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who can’t notice something until 3 years later?

Axl Rose!

Yes readers that is correct, a whole 3 years after the release of Guitar Hero III, Axl Rose is suing Activision for $20 million. Apparently there is an issue with having Slash present with both a GnR song (Welcome to the Jungle) and Velvet Revolver songs available as downloadable tracks for the game. This exploits the previous relationship between Slash and Guns n’ Roses, and promotes his and Velvet Revolver’s separate interests; which is contradictory to what the contract says is allowed.

This was three years ago! Why didn’t we pay attention then and have a tiny lawsuit? Hmm? Now he wants to try and get a huge check and tons of people would likely get laid off and progress for the company will go waaay down. The end result for him will be a lawyer that is paid, and probably new furniture for your bazillion dollar home. Happy Christmas doucheman.
