Axl Rose Sues Activision over Guitar Hero III

Well, we weren’t going to mention this but we decided not to take the Perez Hilton approach and only report the good but our benefactor (speaking of which, where’s the check Mr. Rose?) has decided it’s finally time to sue Guitar Hero III. Well, he’s suing the makers of the game Activision for $20 Million (Yikes)..

Legal Mumbo-jumbo from Skip Miller, Rose’s attorney- “This lawsuit is about protecting Guns N’ Roses and ‘Welcome to the Jungle,’ and is about holding Activision accountable for its misuse of these incredibly valuable assets.” He further adds, “The relief we are seeking is disgorgement of profits and compensatory and punitive damages.”

They’ve also got some other stuff in there about Sweet Child O’Mine being used in Guitar Hero II and something along the lines of Slash’s character not being allowed to associate himself with Guns N’ Roses..I don’t know, who cares? It’s good old uncle Axl doing what he does best, pissing people off.

Personally, we at Tickets There think this is a message to anyone who thought the Duff McKagan reunion in London may become more widespread. If we hear anymore, we’ll let ye know (expect a Wikipedia update in 5 years that the case was settled out of court and a comment from Slash either saying ‘I don’t know what Axl’s doing’ or ‘I Can’t comment on that’)
