Guns N' Roses manager says Axl Rose was held for ransom

 

Guns N' Roses manager Merck Mercuriadis issued a statement late last week in which he claimed that singer W. Axl Rose was virtually "held for ransom" after being arrested for causing a disturbance and attacking a security guard at a Stockholm, Sweden hotel last Tuesday (June 27th). According to the BBC, Mercuriadis stated that Swedish authorities, who held Rose in jail for hours after his arrest, were aware that the band was in the middle of a European tour, but "continually threatened us over a 12-hour period with between five days and three weeks incarceration without bail if Axl did not 'cooperate.' They were fully aware that there were millions of dollars at stake, not to mention the hopes of tens of thousands of fans who had paid for tickets to see Guns N' Roses."

Mercuriadis said that the experience was "tantamount to being held for ransom," and added that Axl had been accosted by the guard and "physically mistreated" during his arrest.

Axl eventually admitted to the charges and paid approximately $6,800 in fines, one-fifth of which went to the guard, whom Rose bit on the leg.

Guns N' Roses were able to proceed to their Wednesday night June 28th show in Oslo, Norway without further incident. The band plays on Wednesday, July 5th, in Helsinki, Finland.

Axl Rose Out of Jail

By Doug Pendrell

Wednesday, June 28, 2006

 

Axl Rose spent some time getting re-acquainted with the inside of a jail cell yesterday after he was arrested in Stockholm, Sweden for violent conduct and damaging his hotel room. Axl was released this morning, after pleading guilty to the charges of violent conduct and criminal damage.

Reuters reports that " Rose was freed after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor of violent conduct and criminal damage and agreeing to pay a fine of 40,000 crowns ($5,460) and 10,000 crowns in compensation to a security guard, a police spokeswoman said."

USA Today had more of the low-down on Axl Rose. " Catarina Oscarsson, a spokeswoman for concert organizer Ema Telstar, said the band wasn't traveling with a publicist and would not comment on the arrest," however, police spokeswoman Towe Hagg did go on to say that " He was deemed too intoxicated to be questioned right away."

The BBC did go on to quote Towe Hagg as saying "The matter is now concluded." This means that Axl Rose, and his band, Guns N' Roses can continue on on their tour in support of their upcoming album, Chinese Democracy. Their next stop is in Oslo, Norway on Wednesday.

Formed in 1985, Guns N' Roses shot to stardom with the release of their debut album Appetite for Destruction in 1987, which produced such hit songs as Welcome to the Jungle, Paradise City, and Sweet Child O' Mine. It wasn't until 1991 that Guns N' Roses became legendary rock gods with the release of the multi-platinum double album Use Your Illusion 1 and Use Your Illusion II, which featured such hits as November Rain, Don't Cry, Live and Let Die, Civil War, You Could Be Mine, and the unforgettable cover Knocking on Heaven's Door, written by folk legend Bob Dylan. After a heated public break up in 1993 at the end of their historic 28 month Use Your Illusion Tour, Guns N' Roses parted ways for good. Slash went on to form the short lived band Slash's Snakepit, while Axl Rose fell into relative obscurity and seclusion, appearing every so often with new incarnations of the band.

Axl Rose held for 'biting guard'

Tuesday, June 27, 2006 

long.axl.afp.gi.jpg

Axl Rose attends the British Grand Prix earlier in June.

STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) -- Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose was arrested in Stockholm early Tuesday after allegedly biting a security guard in the leg outside his hotel, police said.

Rose -- who performed in the Swedish capital on Monday evening -- was being held on suspicion of attacking and threatening the guard, as well as causing damage to the Berns Hotel where the alleged scuffle took place, police spokeswoman Towe Hagg said.

Hagg told The Associated Press that Rose was intoxicated during the confrontation, which broke out around 8 a.m. (0600 GMT), and would face questioning after he sobers up.

"He was deemed too intoxicated to be questioned right away," she said.

A prosecutor will then decide whether to press charges against him, Hagg also said.

It was unclear what caused the fight, but Swedish tabloids said the guard tried to intervene when Rose started arguing with a woman in the hotel lobby.

Fredrik Nylen, one of the police officers who helped arrest Rose, was quoted by the daily Aftonbladet Web site as saying that the singer acted aggressively toward police and had to be "handcuffed and restrained" in the hotel.

"He kept a high profile, so to speak," Nylen was quoted as saying.

Guns N' Roses played a concert in Stockholm's Globe Arena Monday night, and had been partying at a well-known night club before the scuffle, Aftonbladet said.

Guns N' Roses Comeback Gig Shambles

Guns N Roses' comeback UK show in London last night annoyed fans by overrunning by an hour.

The band arrived an hour late on stage and fans started booing. The show didn't finish until 1am, leaving many with no means of public transport to get home, and many fans missed a lot of the set as they were forced to leave early.

HILFIGER HONOURS GUNS 'N' ROSES AT CFDA AWARDSMovie & Entertainment News provided by World Entertainment News Network (www.wenn.com)

Fashionista TOMMY HILFIGER paid tribute to arch enemy AXL ROSE at last night's (05JUN06) Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) awards by wearing a GUNS N' ROSES T-shirt.
Hilfiger and the SWEET CHILD OF MINE rocker got into a furious row at actress ROSARIO DAWSON's birthday party in New York City last month (MAY06), which resulted in the designer allegedly hitting Rose.
But the designer, who previously branded the singer "rude and obnoxious", appeared to have put the spat behind him with his humorous choice of top.

Former SKID ROW frontman Sebastian Bach has posted the following message on his official web site:

"Sometimes in life you make true friends. A true friend is someone whom you can see and then not see, but when you see them again, it is like no time has passed at all. A true friend is someone whom you can laugh with, talk with, hang out with, rock with, and confide in.Then there is the friend who gives you so much you can't express in words how much they mean to you.

"When I look back on my life, I have to say that one of my true friends is Mr. W. Axl Rose. As everyone now knows, when GUNS N' ROSES made their triumphant return to New York City a few weeks ago, Axl was cool enough to invite me onstage all four nights to sing with him the GUNS N' ROSES song of my choice, which happens to be 'My Michelle'. During the NYC shows Axl asked me if I wanted to fly with him to Europe to duet with him in England at Donington and Hammersmith. Of course I said YES and then I mentioned to him the recording of the new CD 'Angel Down' and how much it would mean for our band to open some GUNS N' ROSES shows. Axl's response was to offer the band the whole European tour.

"To say that my mind is blown, or that I am thankful for this opportunity, is so superfluous. I really cannot express how much this means to me.

"Axl Rose is the most honest, genuine, straight-up, and talented person I have ever met in this business, and for him to give my band the chance to rock in front of all his fans is something I will never forget. He is now singing better than ever!

"My personal favorite new GUNS N' ROSES song is 'I.R.S.'

"Last night I jammed with him at Rock Am Ring in Germany in front of 70,000 people after a two-day plane journey which put me in four countries in one day!

"It is gonna be a truly killer summer playing on tour with GUNS N' ROSES and recording the new CD as well!!!

'See ya soon Europe and Japan!"

Guns N' Roses Make Live Comeback In New York City
Written by Stereoboard.com   
Sunday, 14 May 2006

Guns N' Roses made their long awaited live comeback this weekend.

The iconic 80's rock band, now with only Axl Rose from the original line-up, played their first shows since the doomed tour of 2002 at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York on Friday night.

The four-date residence shows were sold out in minutes, as fans scrambled for tickets, and have been described by Axl as mere warm-up shows for the European Tour that kicks off in Madrid on May 25th.

The band also performed six new tracks at the Friday night concert. 'The Blues', 'Better', 'Madagascar', 'Chinese Democracy', 'There Was a Time', and 'IRS' will all feature on the decade-in-the-making 'Chinese Democracy' album.

Axl Rose revealed last week in a radio interview that he expects the long-awaited album to be released sometime this year, although no official date has been revealed as yet.

ImageGNR also revealed the bands new guitarist at the show, with Ron Thal, aka Bumblefoot, filling in for the departed Buckethead, who left the band two years ago. It is not yet known if Bumblefoot will be a permanent member of the band though.

New York Times reviewer Ben Ratliff reports on the show by saying, "Mr. Rose’s voice sounded strong, even in his highest nasal shrieks, but the band wasn’t using the warm-up time to experiment."

The concert ran in excess of 2 hours, and the setlist was as follows.

1. Welcome To The Jungle
2. It's So Easy
3. Mr. Brownstone
4. Better
5. Live And Let Die
6. Sweet Child O' Mine
7. Knockin On Heavens Door
8. Madagascar
9. You Could Be Mine
10. The Blues
11. Out To Get Me (Bumblefoot Solo)
12. November Rain
13. My Michelle
14. Chinese Democracy
15. There Was A Timeo
16. Patience (Bumblefoot 2nd Solo)
17. I.R.S
18. Nightrain (Robin Solo)
19. Paradise City

Look who's talking! Axl drops in on WAXQ

AUDIO

 

Axl Rose
Guns N' Roses front man Axl Rose, half-jokingly described by his comrade Sebastian Bach as "the Howard Hughes of rock 'n' roll," startled fans around the world early Saturday by dropping in on Eddie Trunk's WAXQ (104.3 FM) radio show and hanging out on-air for two and a half hours.

"Even though we talked on the phone, I have to admit that when he told Sebastian he'd come over, I was like, 'Yeah, right,'" said Trunk yesterday. "But when he got here, he couldn't have been nicer."

Rose came from a Guns N' Roses rehearsal to the WAXQ studio around 12:30 a.m. to join Trunk, Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian, WWE wrestler Chris Jericho and Bach, who Trunk says "really made it happen."

Rose drank Red Bulls, swapped stories, cracked a few jokes about himself and his reputation and suggested Trunk play Motorhead's "Ace of Spades." He also told stories about the hard-rock world and talked about growing up and listening to bands like Kiss and Wasp.

He answered some questions from Trunk, saying the long-awaited "Chinese Democracy" CD will be out in the fall, and deflected others. He declined to identify the band's new lead guitarist or explain why he aborted a 2002 tour beyond saying the tour wasn't his idea.

He seemed relaxed and good-natured and had only one request: no photos.

"I wanted to offer a comfort zone," said Trunk. "I wanted him to feel like he could just hang out, while at the same time giving some information to the audience."

As word spread, that audience exploded. In half an hour, WAXQ's Web stream had crashed from overload, making fans wait until audio circulated later that day.

In one minidrama, the visit closed a bit of unfinished business for Trunk and his pal Mike Piazza, who were rebuked by Rose several years ago for playing an unreleased GNR track. Saturday morning, Trunk called Piazza, who also was incredulous at first that Rose was really there, and they talked it out.

"I think that was big for Mike," said Trunk. "He's such a fan of the band, this had been weighing on him."

Everyone had enough fun that Trunk's show, which normally ends at 2 a.m., ran an extra hour with WAXQ's blessing.

"That's one of the great things about 'Friday Night Rocks,'" said Trunk. "It's not structured, like so many other shows are. We can do things like this."

After the show the hang-out continued, with Rose inviting everyone to a nightclub to keep talking music. Trunk said he got home around 6 a.m.

"I've been doing this for 23 years," he said. "This is one of those one or two nights you'll never forget."

Guns N' Roses add more New York shows

Guns N' Roses have added two more New York City shows to their upcoming tour itinerary, bringing its total of Big Apple appearances to four. The band will now play at Hammerstein Ballroom on May 12th and 14th, in addition to its two previously scheduled shows at the same venue on May 15th and 17th. These are the only U.S. appearances scheduled so far for the group, which counts singer W. Axl Rose as its sole original member. Tickets went on sale on Friday, April 21st and will cost fans $63, to see a band whose current lineup remains shrouded in mystery.

Guns N' Roses will perform at 17 European festivals following the New York shows, beginning on May 27th in Lisbon, Portugal.

The four New York shows, if they actually happen, will mark the first concert performances by GNR since scrapping a 2002 world tour after just a few dates.

Although Rose has claimed that fans will hear new GNR music this year, the band's record label still does not have the long-delayed Chinese Democracy album on its release schedule.

The War of the Guns N' Roses  

March 7, 2006

Things are not going well for Axl Rose on the supposed eve of the release of Chinese Democracy. First, his meticulously guarded tracks were leaked onto the Internet, and now he's mired in yet another battle with former Guns N' Roses bandmates Slash and Duff McKagan.

Slash recently made public statements about Rose's upcoming GNR project, proclaiming his support of his former bandmate. Rose was not amused.

A statement released Monday (March 6) on behalf of Rose states that Slash's announcements of support for Rose are merely attempts to "garner publicity for himself." "Slash's actions in recent years have in fact been anything but supportive," the statement read, citing a series of lawsuits filed against Rose in the past decade.

"Slash's actions, whether in or out of Guns N' Roses have been a complete betrayal across the board of his alleged friendship and business relationship with Axl," the statement continued.

In August, Slash and McKagan filed their most recent suit against Rose claiming the former GNR frontman changed the publisher's name on songs collectively owned by the band.

That lawsuit was "based on a faulty premise from the start," according to Monday's statement. "What Hudson and McKagen attempted to portray as egregious misconduct by Axl was in fact -- as Slash and Duff have learned -- nothing more than a clerical error committed by ASCAP."

On Friday (March 3), Rose filed a counterclaim in Federal Court seeking to confirm "his ownership of his own creative works."

"Axl regrets having to spend time and energy on these distractions," Rose's attorney Howard Weitzman said in a statement, "but he has a responsibility to protect the Guns N' Roses legacy and expose the truth."

No word yet on how much Axl is seeking in damages.

Chinese Democracy to Reign in NYC

April 17, 2006

AP Photo

Chinese Democracy may not be hitting stores anytime soon, but Axl Rose is capitalizing on his brand new 15 minutes with a pair of shows at New York City's Hammerstein Ballroom.

No word yet on the lineup that will take the stage on May 15 and 17, but you can probably lay those dreams of a reunion with Slash and Duff to rest. Still, you might want to hold out some hope for Matt Sorum to take the stage, since the former Guns N' Roses drummer blogged recently that he ran into Rose at an LA nightclub.

"I hadn't seen him in at least 6 years," Sorum wrote. "And it was nice to clear some things up. I told him how great of a frontman he was while I was in the band and no hard feelings from me at all. It was an all around good vibe I think."

What fans can definitely expect is to hear some of the leaked Chinese Democracy tracks that hit the internet earlier this year.

The pair of dates will mark GNR's first American shows since 2002, according to Newsday. Following those dates, the band will play a smattering of shows in Europe.

Tickets go on sale on April 21 at 10am via Ticketmaster, and they'll set you back $63 each.

Slash Addresses Guns N' Roses Rumors

Slash Addresses Guns N' Roses Rumors

Velvet Revolver/ex-Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash joined VR/ex-GNR drummer Matt Sorum this past Saturday, May 13, as a guest on Camp Freddy Radio. During the two-hour show, Slash addressed a number of topics, including the rumors that he was rejoining Guns N' Roses, Axl Rose's claim that Slash made an unannounced visit to Rose's house in October 2005, the reports that he had quit Velvet Revolver and filed for divorce. A few excerpts from the broadcast follow, according to Blabbermouth.net:

  • thing that was put out that said something to the effect that I won't be doing any gigs until after a certain point [referring to a May 8, 2006 Associated Press article which stated that 'Slash may end up back in the band as well, but probably not before the Hammerstein shows.' — Blabbermouth] He put out some sort of… He [Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose] did a radio interview, I guess, in New York, and it said whatever city he was gonna be playing, it said it won't be until after that… And I was like, 'Where does this stuff come from?' But before that, the whole thing was, like, everybody just assumed that I'd quit Velvet Revolver and I was joining… Even you guys thought that.

    Matt: Well, hey… You can't believe everything you read. [Laughs]

    Slash: It was like all these rumors going around. So I just wanted to dispel that one. That one and the fact that I ever had a conversation with him [Axl] at all.

    Matt: I told the story last week that I ran into him [Rose] in New York and actually talked to him, and it was fairly pleasant. It was very pleasant, actually, but we were both drunk, so that helped.

    Slash: When we were on the red carpet last night [at the MusiCares MAP Fund benefit concert in Hollywood], that was the first thing that I went and talked about to what's-her-face from CNN, and [I was] just so inundated with questions about what's going on with Velvet Revolver, supposedly all this in-band fighting going on, and then all these rumors about Guns N' Roses, and this and that and the other, and I was just like… I've been minding my own business, sitting at home, working on the songs [for the new Velvet Revolver album]. I mean, the fact that people even care enough to start rumors or keep regurgitating them… it's amazing.

    Matt: I mean, I guess Fall Out Boy isn't doing anything crazy to talk about, so they might as well talk about us old sods. [Laughs]

    Slash: I guess that's one thing that's always gone along with that name, Guns N' Roses — there's always been this controversial… just talk. [Laughs]

 

  • On Velvet Revolver's current status:

 

Slash: We're still a band and none of that stuff [the rumors] is…

Matt: We actually just recorded a song that we're gonna put on this movie. Do we have the movie? Or don't we? [Laughs]

Slash: I think they offered it to us and we have to give them song, and… It sounds really good, so I don't think there's gonna be a problem, like, 'Oh, I don't think that's what we wanted.' [Laughs] I mean, I guess that could happen, but I doubt it.

Matt: It's this new Steven Spielberg flick. It's…

Slash: And [Robert] Zemeckis.

Matt: And Zemeckis… yeah, I forgot about him. Zemeckis and Spielberg… And it's this animated flick called 'Monster House'. It's really cool. They took us down to see it in a private screening room and the whole deal. It was nice.

Slash: Yeah, it should probably be a big movie.

 

  • On Axl Rose's claim that Slash made an unannounced 5:30 a.m. visit to Rose's house in October 2005 during which he stated, among other things, that "Duff was spineless," "Scott [Weiland] was a fraud," and that he "hates Matt Sorum":

 

Slash: I'm not gonna go into the whole long thing. It was just something that he [Axl] decided he was going to… It was a lot of this stuff was built to promote the next Guns record and the tour and all that kind of stuff, 'cause there was this blatantly fabricated thing in there that I'd gone to his house and that he and I had a conversation in which I said all this stuff about my bandmates. And it's just blatantly untrue. For one, I have not talked to the guy in any way, shape or form since 1996, so it's going on 11 years. [Laughs] So that's basically it. There's just no truth to it. And all things considered, it put lot of whatever in people's minds that I was that kind of a guy, so it's… there you have it. So it's not true.

  • On Slash's claim in a February 2006 interview that Guns N' Roses' "Chinese Democracy" would finally surface in March:

Slash: I got a lot of flak for having said that, 'cause everybody through I was on glue. I'm the first guy to go… I would never have put out a date. But somebody who would know is who told me that, and that's somebody close to that side of the fence that told me, 'Oh, we got a March release date.' So I just repeated it, basically. It was somebody in the business. They made it sound like it is coming out on such and such a date. Really, I didn't realize that it was such a big deal. And I think some people were like, 'You've gotta be out of your mind.' But it was very sort of casual, in conversation.

Judge Refuses To Slash Verdict In

 GUNS N' ROSES Suit - Mar. 16, 2006

Asher Hawkins of The Legal Intelligencer has issued the following report:

A Philadelphia judge has declined to remit the six-figure verdict a jury awarded to a woman who claimed a December 2002 ankle injury outside the then-First Union Center was caused by arena management's failure to foresee and prevent the riotous behavior sure to sweep the crowd once the cancellation of a GUNS N' ROSES concert was announced.

Michelle Heenan was, at the time of the accident, a single 39-year-old Northeast Philadelphia resident who worked as an administrative assistant at a local hospital.

Heenan asserted that defendants Comcast Spectator and Spectrum Arena Limited Partnership should have recognized the crowd would become unruly when the rock band's Philadelphia show was canceled, as roughly a month earlier, GUNS N' ROSES fans in Vancouver, British Columbia, had rioted when the band called off its show in that city.


Heenan had also filed suit against the band and various tour and concert promotion companies, but those defendants were either dismissed or granted nonsuits.

In the spring of 2005, the jury in Heenan v. Comcast Spectator found against Comcast Spectator and Spectrum Arena Limited and awarded Heenan $140,000.

In an opinion filed last week, Philadelphia Common Pleas Judge Eugene E.J. Maier urged the Superior Court to affirm his denial of the defense's post-trial motions seeking JNOV, a new trial or remittitur.

In a rare interview conducted by Rolling Stone magazine on Jan. 13, GUNS N' ROSES frontman Axl Rose promised fans that the band will be back in 2006 with the "Chinese Democracy" album.

"People will hear music this year," Rose said. "'Chinese Democracy' is a very complex record. I am trying to do something different. Some of the arrangements are kind of like QUEEN." He also added he is working on 32 songs for the album and 26 are finished out of which 13 will feature on the final album. Some songs include "Better", "There was a Time" and "The Blues"

Brian May: Leaked GNR track is great

Axl Rose said that some of the new Guns N' Roses music would have a Queen feel, but he didn't say it was because a member of Queen was on the new album Chinese Democracy. Guitarist Brian May has admitted to being on the song "Catcher In The Rye" that's been leaked on the Internet. On his official brianmay.com website, the guitarist wrote, "Yes, my guitar is there, nice and crisply recorded. It was a blast doing the sessions. I had flown out to LA specially to play on the record for Axl. I've sat on whatever I have or know about these songs ever since that moment... out of respect for Axl... confidentiality is part of respect for me."

May also wrote, "'Catcher In The Rye' is a great track... I like the track a lot and always did... and it still sounds very fresh... The thing that hits you first is that incredible, incredible voice... we've been missing it for far too long. Axl is magic."

"Catcher In The Rye" is one of a handful of songs that have appeared online in recent weeks. They're expected to be part of the new GNR album Chinese Democracy - whenever it comes out.

Guns N' Roses are lining up European shows for the late spring and summer. North American dates haven't been announced yet.

Queen + Paul Rodgers kicked off the North American leg of their tour on Friday, March 3rd in Miami.

GUNS N' ROSES: 'Greatest Hits' Approaching Three-Million Mark In The U.S. - Mar. 5, 2006

GUNS N' ROSES' "Greatest Hits" collection, which was originally issued in March of 2004, sold more than 15,000 copies in the United States last week alone (week ending Feb. 26), bringing the total number of copies sold since its release to 2.79 million, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The album presently stands as the only currently charting release that has spent more than 100 weeks on the Billboard Top 100 album chart. GUNS N' ROSES frontman Axl Rose, along with ex-members Slash and Duff McKagan, tried to block the release of "Greatest Hits" with a lawsuit, claiming that the record label had assembled the CD without their input. The band's label, Geffen Records, insisted that it was forced to put out a greatest hits album since Axl Rose had failed to deliver the long-delayed new GUNS album, "Chinese Democracy".
