Rivals Sons confirm shows with Guns N’ Roses

Posted by XxCrashQueenxX on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at 12:26 PM (PST)

Rivals Sons have confirmed that they will be the main support act for Guns N’ Roses for two shows in Europe this coming summer.

The band will be opening for Guns N’ Roses on June 4th at Ahoy in Rotterdam, Netherlands, and then at the Warsteiner Hockey Park in Mönchengladbach, Germany on June 8th.

Rival Sons guitarist Scott Holiday had these comments to make:

“What a great, great opportunity to get these shows supporting Guns N’ Roses! Germany has been great to us, and this will only help us reach out to so many more people over there. As far as Guns goes… I remember the first time those guys were ever on MTV, me and my best mate were watching. A total shock to the system, and to me and my friends’ lives. We were really young little dudes, but we already loved our rock ‘n’ roll, and Guns just reeked of reality and grit… I mean they were literally very dirty. And we LOVED it. They ushered in a lot more ‘real’ and dirtiness to a scene that had become way too fruity-pants. As a wee guitar-playing lad, I couldn’t get enough of Appetite For Destruction and Lies. Ready to see and hear some of those first tunes played live!”

Axl Rose says no to Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction; still hates Slash too

Posted by SeanB on Thursday, April 12, 2012 at 9:55 AM (PST)

To absolutely no one’s surprise, Axl Rose has asked the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame not to include him in its recent nomination of Guns N’ Roses and has refused to show up even if they do.  He’s released a pretty lengthy statement about the whole ordeal where he specifically mentions all the other members of the band…except for Slash.

The funny thing is, the Hall of Fame doesn’t seem to care.  They released their own statement saying:

“We are sorry he will not be able to accept his induction in person.”

It looks like the April 14, 2012 ceremony is going down with or without him.  To read Axl’s statement in full, click here.

Posted by Metal Dude on Sunday, November 13, 2011 at 8:25 AM (PST)

Current Guns N’ Roses guitarist DJ Ashba was recently interviewed by Banana 101.5 Rocks, where he talked about the possibility of a reunion with their original lineup. He was asked if he would be offended if it happened and replied:

“No, not at all. I get asked that a lot and my honest opinion is that I don’t ever foresee that happening, to be honest, just from what I know. But I would be the first person in line to buy a ticket, that’s for sure. So I have no problem with it whatsoever.”

You can read the rest of the interview here.

Guns N’ Roses have discussed the possibility of another album. Their most recent one, Chinese Democracy, was released in 2008 after many years of writing and recording.

Guns N’ Roses bassist Tommy Stinson was recently interviewed by Dallas Observer, where he was asked whether the band will record another album. He replied:

“I’m not going to say a whole lot about that, but I tell you right now that I certainly hope we do another album. I would love to get everyone back into the studio and make some more stuff happen. I think we have a good band, and each of us has something interesting to offer. I hope we get on this project sooner than later.”

Their latest album, Chinese Democracy, was released in 2008 after many years of writing and recording.

Guns N’ Roses Frontman Axl Rose Court Date Set

Posted by jillettinger on Thursday, March 10, 2011 at 1:53 PM (PST)

Axl Rose, the last original member and frontman of 80’s metal legends, Guns N’ Roses, will have his day in court in early 2012.

The $20 million lawsuit comes as a result of the misuse of the classic Guns N’ Roses song, “Welcome to the Jungle” in the video game “Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock” put out by Activision Blizzard, Inc. Rose claims he was misled by Activision, who he says persuaded him to authorize use of the track and then lied and hid information about their intention to feature Slash, the former guitarist for GN’R, who Rose did not want connected with the band in the game.

Rose also alleges that the GN’R track, “Sweet Child O’ Mine” was used in a promotion for Guitar Hero III, although it was only licensed for Guitar Hero II.

The trial is scheduled for January 23rd.
