Guns N' Roses Leader Axl Rose Loses $20 Million Legal Battle

02/11/2013
.
(Classic Rock) Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose has lost his court case against video game maker Activision.

Rose had been battling the corporation since 2010, claiming they'd breached an agreement over his appearance in 2007′s Guitar Hero III: Legends Of Rock.

He said they'd been allowed to use classic track Welcome To The Jungle as long as former colleague Slash and his then-active band Velvet Revolver didn't appear in the game. But when it was released Slash was the main image on the cover artwork, leading Rose to call his lawyers in.

He'd had demanded $20m in compensation, arguing that the song's appearance helped the firm generate over $1bn in sales.

On Friday Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Charles Palmer threw out the last of the singer's arguments, after having previously ruled out his claims of fraud and misrepresentation. more on this story
