Axl Rose Slams 'Guitar Hero' Over Unauthorized Use of Guns N' Roses' Songs
Axl Rose blasts off video game manufacturer Activision, which produced "Guitar Hero", for allegedly using Guns N' Roses' songs "Welcome to the Jungle" and "Sweet Child O' Mine" without proper authorization. Saying that ex-lead guitarist Slash "being Guitar Hero's fine", he adds, " but not [fine] when Activison in using Jungle, having Yahoo use Sweet Child unauthorized."
"Yes Slash was in Guns and on Jungle (and the whole I came to him for his riff is as much crap as him saying he brought Locomotive and Coma in as complete songs)," Axl opens up further during an open chat with fans. "And he has rights to perform it but not to be represented in this context in association with Guns. And since they weren't granted the license it'll take some sorting."
Guns N' Roses have released their comeback effort "Chinese Democracy" in late November after fifteen years of hiatus. Being the most expensive album ever produced with almost $13 million in production cost, it managed to reach number 3 on Billboard Hot 200 Albums chart and peaked at number 2 on U.K. Albums chart.
