Slash on Rose’s Azoff lawsuit

By | Published on Monday 24 May 2010

So, Axl Rose is countersuing his former manager, Live Nation big cheese Irving Azoff. The former manager claims he is owed a cut of the revenues from the most recent Guns N Roses tour. Rose says Azoff bungled the management of the tour and the marketing of his lacklustre comeback album ‘Chinese Democracy’, because he invested all his time and energy in a pointless bid to get the original GnR line up back together.

But, I hear you ask, what does Slash think about all this? Well, according to WENN, Rose’s former bandmate is confused. He’s quoted thus: “I don’t know where Axl is coming from. I know where Irving is coming from – he’s looking for commissions for a tour that he booked; a pretty reasonable kind of thing. Axl’s [just] countersuing”. So, that’s that settled.
