Lawyers Broke Up Original Guns N' Roses

Duff McKagan says he has never had any personal problems with Axl Rose and the cracks which formed, and eventually tore Guns N' Roses apart, were deliberately created by lawyers looking to make a quick buck.

The bassist quit GNR in 1997, following in the footsteps of Slash and Izzy Stradlin, leaving Axl as the only classic line-up member remaining. But he reveals the whole situation was created by outside influences and not by any disagreement or personal issue between the band and Axl.

"I never had a personal beef with Axl, truth be told. Lawyers and stuff in that instance, it was kind of treacherous. They make money and try to create enemies between clients," Duff told AV Club "I wish they'd teach that course. If there was a rock 'n' roll textbook, I could add some sh*t to it, real valuable sh*t. We were torn apart by people who weren't in the band, and that's really what always happens.
