Judge dismisses Axl Rose's lawsuit against video game maker

WENN

A judge has dismissed Axl Rose's lawsuit against the makers of popular video game Guitar Hero.

Find: Plastic surgery for Axl Rose?

The Guns N' Roses frontman accused Activision Blizzard bosses of acting fraudulently in 2010, alleging they had illegally used his band's music, and included an image of former guitarist Slash in 2007's Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock -- despite promising not to feature any reference to the ex-bandmate or his new group, Velvet Revolver.

Rose's fraud and misrepresentation claims were thrown out last year when Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Charles Palmer ruled the statute of limitations had expired on the case, but in January, he allowed Rose to proceed with his charge of breach of contract.

On Thursday, however, Palmer threw out the remainder of the 51-year-old Rose's allegations, according to local publication the San Marino Tribune.

Rose and his former guitarist have been locked in a furious war of words with each other ever since Slash quit the group in 1996.

And for those F--ktards A-Holes that want to refer to Axl as an A-Hole, with no valid right to do so,and are just too plain LAZY and UNETHICAL to hear Axl's P.O.V,   I'll simply refer you to the words of Scott Weilland, Who had personal experience with the Ex- bandmembers, and of their attitude and mentality.

                                     It doesn't take a genius, Axl the only sober amongst a Drunken Wasted Mob!

You are Laughable. ESPECIALLY those of the SLASH ****ERS POSSE!  You are the KINGS OF JEALOUSY!! AXL has always been the hand that fed GNR. Without Axl, THERE NEVER HAD BEEN A GNR.

AXL'S HYNOTIC SKILLS AS FRONTMAN TO GNR WAS ALWAYS THE CENTER PIECE of any GNR performance! GNR shows were always LAME without Axl whenever they had to do without him for any reason, but when AXL SHOWED UP, THE FIRE RETURNED, and the audience more than satisfied! Thats why people were ALWAYS willing to wait up to 4hours for Axl, and his performance made them QUICKLY FORGET ANY INCONVENIENCE, TEARS IMMEDIATELY DRIED UP.

AXL THE HAND THAT FED GNR, also PROVEN BY HOW HORRIBLE THE OTHER BAND MEMBERS HAVE DONE SINCE LEAVING GNR! AXL IS MORE SUCCESSFUL THAN ALL THEM COMBINED! AXL IS THE ONE THAT STILL FILLS STADIUMS, while Slash is lucky to get a side gig with a crowd of a few hundred!

Slash AND The Myles Kennedy Show has only sold A MERE 38,000 copies when his Apocalyptic Love album debuted in the first week, 60,000 with Slash's self titled debut album, EPIC FAIL!

Chinese Democracy debuted with 261,00 copies in its first week, swallowing Slash and Myles WHOLE SEVERAL TIMES OVER!!

To say Axl hasn't produced anything of significance since the split is an absolute JOKE!

Chinese Democracy HAS SOLD BETWEEN 4-5 MILLION COPIES WORLDWIDE, HAS TOURED BEFORE MORE THAN 4 MILLION PEOPLE, AND HAS WON BEST TOUR OF THE YEAR BY LANDSLIDE TWO YEARS IN A ROW, 2011 and 2012!

AND MORE RECENTLY,

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY 'OLD ALBUMS' ARE OUTSELLING NEW ALBUMS 76.6 MILLION TO 73.9 MILLION, GNR AND WHITNEY HOUSTON. THE GNR SALES ARE TAKING OFF DIRECTLY RELATES TO AXL BECOMING MORE ACTIVE AS OF LATE.

Slash has always been active and has never generated much excitement.

COMPARING SLASH TO AXL, is like COMPARING A MERRY GO ROUND TO A ROLLER COASTER!

OMG, Are YOU POS'S FOR REALZ???? SINCE WHEN IS IT YOUR RIGHT TO DICTATE TO AXL HOW TO HANDLE HIS BUSINESS AFFAIRS??

THAT'S HIS PERSONAL BUSINESS BETW. AXL AND SLASH, NOT YOURS!! JEALOUSY?

 

AND SLASH HAS TAKEN BAND PERSONAL BUSINESS TO THE MEDIA LIKE A COWARD INSTEAD OF KEEPING IT IN THE BAND, AND HAS ADMITTED TO LYING ABOUT AXL IN THE MEDIA TO CAUSE TROUBLE. SLASH THE RAT AND HIS DISHONEST TWO FACED-NESS REALLY SHOWS HIS RAT-LIKE GOOD CHARACTER!

AND WHO ARE YOU TO PASS JUDGEMENT AS THOUGH YOU'VE NEVER HAD ANY FAULTS?

NONE OF YOU ARE W/O FAULTS, NOR ANYBODY FOR THAT MATTER.

WHERE'S YOUR PROOF THAT AXL'S SUCH AN ****?

 HAVE YOU MET HIM PERSONALLY? I KNOW SOME PEOPLE WHO HAVE, AND THEY ALL SAY WHAT OTHERS INCLUDING EVEN SLASH HAS SAID, AXL IS A SWEETHEART OF A MAN.

 

AND AXL HAS MADE A GREAT,  POSITIVE DIFFERENCE IN MANY MILLIONS PEOPLES' LIVES,THAT'S WHY HE STILL SELLS OUT BIG STADIUMS!  HE'S DONE MORE GOOD IN ONE CONCERT THAN ANY OF YOU WILL EVER DO IN YOUR ENTIRE LIVES!!

 

YOU WILL NEVER BE A SIGNIFICANT FORCE LIKE AXL IS,

AND ANYBODY THAT CAN SIT BEHIND A COMPUTER SCREEN AND MAKE ACCUSATIONS ABOUT SOMEBODY ELSE'S PERSONAL BUSINESS IS THE REAL A**HOLES!!
