Axl Arrested
antiMusic reports: Guns N' Roses hasn't truly returned until someone get arrested and leave it to frontman Axl Rose to make it official. In a bizarre story coming out of Sweden, Rose was arrested for violent conduct, damaging a hotel room and threatening police. Damaged hotel rooms are nothing new in rock n roll but the strangeness comes from reports that Axl bit a security guard in the leg. 

The fun and games took place at the Berns Hotel in Stockholm following the Guns N' Roses concert at the Globe Arena on Monday night. Stockholm Police Department spokesperson told MTV News that the trouble began when Rose got into an altercation with a woman at the hotel's bar and when a security guard stepped in, Rose attacked him. "He bit him on the leg and then the hotel staff called the police and we came and apprehended him," Hagg said. 

Police arrested Rose and placed him in a jail cell to sober up before questioning him. He does face possible jail time; especially for the charge of threatening a police officer (details about that charge were not available at press time). 

Billboard is reporting that Rose was released from jail Tuesday evening, after he admitted to the charges and agreed to pay a fine of $5,500 and $1,360 in damages to the security guard. - Click Here for the Full Story

Deluxe Sublime
PR reports: Anyone familiar with the explosion of alternative rock in the 1990s knows one of the greatest injustices of the period was that Sublime singer-songwriter-guitarist Bradley Nowell did not live to see the release and massive success of Sublime. The Long Beach trio's major-label debut, Sublime, spawned the Top 5 Modern Rock hits "What I Got," "Wrong Way" and "Santeria" and the Top 30 "Doin' Time," and went on to sell more than five million copies in the U.S. alone. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the self titled Sublime and to pay tribute to Nowell's original vision, is the two disc Sublime Deluxe Edition (Geffen/UMe/Gasoline Alley/Skunk) released on August 15, 2006. The digitally remastered Deluxe Edition includes, for the first time ever, the original unreleased version of "Doin' Time" in its rightful place with Nowell's original vocal track fully restored. The Deluxe Edition also contains 15 bonus tracks, 8 previously unreleased, plus remixes and videos. 

Disc One of the Deluxe Edition restores the self-titled Sublime to its original intended sequence as Nowell had created at famed LA mastering studio, Bernie Grundman's. The disc includes both Nowell's initial opener, the Bob Marley cover of "Trenchtown Rock," and the original version of "Doin' Time", the band's interpretation of George and Ira Gershwin's American standard "Summertime".
