Axl sued by management

By | Published on Friday 26 March 2010

Axl Rose is being sued by Live Nation’s management company Front Line over allegations he owes them nearly $2 million in relation to their recent stint managing Guns N Roses.

Irving Azoff, Frontline founder – and now Live Nation Executive Chairman since the merger of Frontline and Ticketmaster with the live music conglom – oversaw the ‘Chinese Democracy’ era of GNR, but was recently replaced as the band’s manager by Doc McGhee.

Now Frontline say they are owed $1.9 million, their cut of the $12 million Rose made from Guns N Roses’ recent worldwide touring activity, though it’s possible that is in part based on an oral agreement regarding Azoff’s cut of Rose’s income, so it could be interesting to see how this goes if it reaches court.

Roses’ new management has not responded to the lawsuit.
