Axl Rose sues Guitar Hero

2010-11-24 by Dr Dave De Sylvia STAFF | 106 Comments
Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose has filed a $20 million lawsuit against video game company Activision, creators of the Guitar Hero franchise.

Rose alleges that Activision violated an agreement made in exchange for permission to use the band's hit 'Welcome to the Jungle' in Guitar Hero III. Rose alleges that Activision had agreed to refrain from using any image of guitarist Slash and his post-Guns N' Roses band Velvet Revolver in exchange for a license to use the track.

"[Activision] began spinning a web of lies and deception to conceal its true intentions to not only feature Slash and VR prominently in GH III but also promote the game by emphasizing and reinforcing an association between Slash and Guns N' Roses and the band's song 'Welcome to the Jungle'," court documents state.

The documents have been published at Hollywood gossip site Radaronline.

Also, as a nitpick, Activision didn't create Guitar Hero, Harmonix developed it and Red Octane published it.

This came out 5 years ago and completely forgotten about, really. Guitar Hero to Rock Band is like Myspace to Facebook.

Seems like every retard whos too lazy to actually play instruments forgot about GH in favor of RB.

On the contrary, why the fuck is Axl Rose have his panties in a bunch about how they portray a person that is not him? Wanker.

a little late to be filing a lawsuit. its been 3 years since the game came out. he's obviously desperate for some cash.

and yes, i remember in the summer of 2007 when they were hyping a "never before released Velvet Revolver track called "She Builds Quick Machines" or something like that, but then it was scratched. that game was built around Slash a lot, but just because Slash and that song were in the same game doesn't mean they were trying to link them together. Slash's song battle was a custom made song anyway

Hi, my name is Axl Rose. I squandered all my money on cocaine and blow jobs and now I make my career by buying lawyers on credit to sue video game companies because I am a dismal failure and I never had any talent to begin with.
