    You are already aware, if you read this site daily, that singer/impresario/control freak/nut job/take your pick of the aforementioned descriptors Axl Rose is countersuing his former manager, Irving Azoff, for failing to properly promote Guns N' Roses' latest album, Chinese Democracy, and scheming to get the singer to reunite with the original band members by deliberately sabotaging the current incarnation of the band. Rose also raised anti-trust and ethics issues about Azoff's relationship with Ticketmaster. Azoff initiated a suit, going after W. Axl for commissions he claims to be owed for booking a tour and other management duties.

    Former G N' R guitarist Slash, told us told VH1 Classic that "I don't even know what that's about. I don't know where Axl is coming from. I mean, I know where Irving is coming from, he's looking for commissions for a tour that he booked, pretty reasonable kind of thing, Axl's countersuing, so, I'm not sure exactly what the merit is that he's countersuing, exactly. Anyways, I don't keep up with that, I don't follow it." Slash does sound pretty informed with his statement, I must say.

    If you are legalphile, you can read the 28-page suit online here.

    Do you think Rose's allegations are insane? Will Guns N' Roses ever bury those hatchets and finally reunite? Or is that a pipe dream that will never materialize?
