Hello, all. Welcome to my blog! I plan for this blog to be about classic rock, hard rock, and heavy metal. I could have news reports, lists, reviews on an album or movie/DVD, or just about anything. Enjoy my blog!
Axl Roses sues "Guitar Hero" for use of Slash and music in game
Axl Rose has been known to do some crazy things. This might top the list. Recently, Rose has sued Guitar Hero makers Activision for $20 million. Why? In the company's 2007 release of Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock the game not only features "Welcome to the Jungle" but also features former guitarist Slash as a playable character. Rose had said Activision could use "Welcome to the Jungle" only if the game didn't include songs from Velvet Revolver, the supergroup that Slash (along with former GNR band mates Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum) is in. The game offered songs by Velvet Revolver to download. Rose's hate for Slash is showing clearly. In 2009 when Rose was asked whether he'd perform with any of his former GNR band mate, Rose described Slash as "a cancer and better removed, avoided".
Axl, Axl, Axl. Why are you doing this? Just kiss and make up with Slash. Thanks.
