Axl Rose Sues Activision
Axl Rose is suing video game makers, Activision, for $20million.
The Guns 'N' Roses singer is reportedly suing for the use of the song "Welcome to the Jungle" in the new "Guitar Hero III". Rose claims that Activision did not stick with the terms agreed upon for the songs' inclusion.
Apparently, Rose only allowed the use of the song as long as former bandmate , Slash, was not depicted nor were any songs of Velvet Revolver included.
Well, not only is Slash in the game, there are quite a few Velvet Revolver songs offered. Also, Slash is featured on the cover of the game and was named the spokesman as well.
Opinion : If Axl could just let things just go and not spend all his time suing people maybe, just maybe, he could put some decent music out again.
