Weiland Slashed By Former GNR Manager

(Day in Rock) Metal Sludge has posted a rather interesting statement that reportedly came from Guns N' Roses former manager Alan Niven. Here is an excerpt but you'll have to click the full story to read it all.

"Categorically, Slash is utterly accurate - Mr. Weilland is, in my personal opinion, a clueless posturing fraud, of no particular or obvious abilities, including, and most apparently, composition. The band is a thorough waste of a truly great guitar player and terrific rhythm section. [their output has been entirely forgettable and one dimensional].

"As for Mr. Rose, I have no doubt he is still genuinely and profoundly gifted, and it is self evident that he has provided more insight and memorability in a single line of composition than Mr. Weilland has managed in an entire career.

"For the record, Mr. Rose wrote the majority of the melodies and lyrics on the guns records, which include the best selling rock debut of our times, with 16,000,000 sold in the United States alone."[see full story for more]
