Guns n' Roses members sue Axl Rose
The pair claim that Rose tried to deny them royalty payments when he switched to Sanctuary Records, reports Launch.com. They allege that he ordered all Guns n' Roses payments to be sent to his own Blag Frog Music Publishing.
McKagan's lawyer Glen Miskel explained: "When the ASCAP cheque didn't come, we called and they looked into it. We didn't know all the facts at first."
The lawsuit reads: "Suffering an apparent attack of arrogance and ego...Rose recently decided that he is no longer willing to acknowledge the contributions of his former partners and bandmates in having created some of rock's greatest hits.
"Rose's actions were malicious, fraudulent and oppressive, and undertaken in conscious disregard of property rights."
