Guns N’ Roses Is Suing A Brewery For Making Guns N’ Rosé Craft Ale Without Their Approval

May 11, 2019 / Posted by:

Just in time for summer is the only craft ale that matters and the last one that should ever be made (can’t we just survive on Hamms and PBR tallboys and call the craft beer thing done already?). A brewery has been selling unauthorized Guns N’ Rosé ale and Axl Rose, Slash and the rest of Guns N’ Roses are not happy about it. The band is pissed, but this is a good thing, because finally rosé has that edge its soft reputation so desperately needed and GNR has the opportunity to soften their tarnished image as well. This could be a very symbiotic whale and barnacle situation, but GNR won’t let it be great and has filed a lawsuit against the brewery. I’m calling it now: Guns N’ Rosé is the BYOB of summer but you better get your hands on it fast before GNR has it pulled from shelves and the band dog piles on top of it (with Axl on the top so you can’t get a slippery grip on any cans).

Axl Rose Wants Google To Delete Those “Fat Axl” Memes From The Internet

June 7, 2016 / Posted by:

Axl Rose is apparently very mad about “unflattering” pictures of him from 2010 that live on the internet. I’m sure there are plenty of people that are saying: “Yeah, you and me both, Axl” while silently cursing out a high school friend for posting a tragic #tbt of them to Facebook last week.

Back in 2010, pictures of a not-so-skinny Axl in a red bandana were taken at a Guns N’ Roses concert in Winnipeg, Canada. The pictures were taken about a year before the one you see above, so just imagine Axl looking a a whole lot plumper and sweatier. Naturally, once the pics hit the internet, it took about 0.3 seconds before they were turned into a meme.

According to Torrent Freak (via Rolling Stone), the anti-piracy company Web Sheriff issued a DMCA takedown request to Google and Blogspot over the pictures on Axl’s behalf. The request reads:

“Copyright image of Axl Rose. Please be advised that no permission has been granted to publish the copyright image so we cannot direct you to an authorized example of it.”

The pictures were taken by Boris Minkevich for the Winnipeg Free Press. Boris, who doesn’t own the copyright, says that anyone who made a Fax Axl meme is guilty of stealing the pictures from the Winnipeg Free Press.

So far, Google hasn’t taken any of the pictures in question down. If you search for “Fat Axl“, you’ll still get many many Fat Axl memes. And since it’s the internet, and the picture was taken at a public concert, I doubt Google will take it down. And really, who cares? We all have shitty pictures, Axl. If anything, he should just embrace it by opening the next AC/DC show with a parody version of “Back in Black” called “Snackin’ Snacks” while sitting on a giant pile of fun-size candy bars. Don’t fight the meme, Axl.


Axl Rose And AC/DC Make It Official

April 17, 2016 / Posted by:

No one pulls through for the fans the way rock and roll does. And Axl Rose is really beginning to impress me with his dedication to the fans. Or possibly making up for the whole Chinese Democracy taking forever to be released. He said “the show must go on!” last weekend when he broke his foot and said he wouldn’t let it stop him from performing at the 666th Gathering of The Buttholes aka Coachella. And now, he’s helping out his friends AC/DC by taking over on vocals, as was speculated earlier in the week.

AC/DC announced on their website that their lead singer since 1980, Brian Johnson, won’t be continuing with them on their Rock or Bust tour. Brian, according to the statement, has left because his hearing is basically going, going, gone. Axl is going to be the jam to their clam during their European tour dates and will do the postponed American dates after he finishes the Guns N’ Roses Not In This Lifetime tour. Axl has a broken foot, is bloated as all hell and he has bitches calling him old left and right, but he is still working it hard and giving the fans what they want. Janet Jackson, you might want to take notes.

AC/DC band members would like to thank Brian Johnson for his contributions and dedication to the band throughout the years. We wish him all the best with his hearing issues and future ventures. As much as we want this tour to end as it started, we understand, respect and support Brian’s decision to stop touring and save his hearing. We are dedicated to fulfilling the remainder of our touring commitments to everyone that has supported us over the years, and are fortunate that Axl Rose has kindly offered his support to help us fulfill this commitment.

Not only has Brian been temporarily replaced by Axl, AC/DC has been through enough drama as of late to fill a season of Real Housewives. Two years ago, their drummer, Phil Rudd, was arrested for trying to hire a hitman to kill two people and possession of drugs. He ended up getting eight months of house arrest but the band replaced him and apparently has no intention of letting him back in. And one of the founding brothers, Malcolm Young left the band in 2014 because he has dementia.

Guns N’ Roses were also joined by Angus Young, of AC/DC, during their CoacHELLa performance. At least there was some real rock’n’roll there for a minute:

Axl Rose Broke His Foot But Will Still Perform At Coachella

April 9, 2016 / Posted by:

The show must go on! That’s the true motto of a real STAH! Rain didn’t keep Diana Ross from performing in Central Park. A busted liver and a pill addiction didn’t keep Judy Garland from her fans. And now, Axl Rose joins the list of entertainers who just had to push through so as not to disappoint fans! Axl broke his foot but that won’t stop him from performing! Kudos to him for not cancelling.

Axl revealed on his Twitter that his foot is fractured. The fracture happened during a Guns N’ Roses‘ show last Friday at the Troubadour in L.A. They’re performing this week in Vegas and next weekend at Hell on Earth, Coachella, or as Vanessa Hudgens probably calls it, “a very spiritual place where one can wear a string headband and a tassel fringe vest.”  Vulture has confirmed that the thousands and thousands of people going to Coachella to take selfies will not be deprived of Guns N’ Roses, a band none of them even know because Guns N’ Roses is way too old for toddlers in denim short shorts.

Highlighting just how long it’s been, in his tweet, Axl wrote, “This is what can happen when you do something you haven’t done in over 23 years.” Is anyone going to Coachella over 23 or even close to it? Ugh. This makes me feel old and angry. Which are my two favorite things to feel, so thank you, Axl and thank you, Coachella dickheads. Axl also tweeted a video of his doctor explaining what exactly happened to his foot:

Thanks to some kind fan, there’s video from last night’s Guns N’ Roses show in Vegas. Save yourself the descent into horror that is Coachella and just watch this instead:

Axl Rose Might Have Gotten A Job As A Substitute Lead Singer For AC/DC

March 24, 2016 / Posted by:

AC/DC, the band most likely to be heard blasting from a car driven by a middle-aged dad during his Sunday trip to Home Depot, recently found themselves without a lead singer. Brian Johnson, who took over as lead singer after the death of Bon Scott in 1980, was forced to quit their US tour by his doctor earlier this month after it was discovered that touring was putting his 68-year-old ears at risk for total hearing loss. Rather than cancel the rest of their tour, AC/DC decided to reschedule the remaining tour dates. And according to Alternative Nation (via NME), a radio DJ from Atlanta named Jason Bailey says that Brian is being replaced with former Guns N’ Roses lead singer Axl Rose.

NME says that AC/DC’s people wouldn’t exactly confirm if Axl was taking over for Brian; instead, they informed them that they don’t have anything official to announce just yet. A press rep for GnR didn’t have anything to say either. Maybe they’re waiting to see how Axl does on-stage during that big Guns N’ Roses reunion at Coachella.

Jason Bailey claims that “a very very good source” tells him Axl was flown into Atlanta to audition for AC/DC, like a damn American Idol contestant or something. Jason adds that Axl was spotted in Atlanta this weekend. Okay, but that doesn’t mean he was there to audition for AC/DC. He was probably there to party with Izzy, the 1996 Summer Olympics Mascot. After all, a dude who has lightning bolts for eyebrows definitely knows his way around a good time.
