Axl Rose was sued by former bandmates for selling the group's song catalog
Former frontman of Guns N' Roses, Axl Rose, faced a lawsuit from his ex-bandmates, Duff McKagan and Slash concerning the royalties of their song's catalog. McKagan and Slash stated that Rose had signed a publishing deal with Sanctuary that included the lucrative back catalog of the band without their consent.
Accusing Rose of fraud, copyright infringement and breach of fiduciary duty, the two men placed the lawsuit in Los Angeles District Court on Wednesday. No comments from Rose himself or his representative so far.
