Guns N’ Roses Frontman Axl Rose Sued by Former Manager

Guns N' RosesAxl Rose has been touring the globe in 2010, playing for crowds in Asia, Canada and, as he is at the moment, South America, raking in the ticket receipt dough. And now, Los Angeles-based Front Line Management Group is looking for a cut of that cash.

According to reports, Front Line, which used to represent Rose’s band Guns N’ Roses, has filed a lawsuit against Rose claiming they’re owed close to $2 million from the proceeds GN’R have made during their recent tours. Front Line is headed by longtime music manager Irving Azoff, who claims that, in 2008, he and Rose forged an oral agreement to have Azoff represent the band. Azoff claims he was promised a 15-percent cut of all the cash GN’R took in.

But in the lawsuit, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Front Line claims it hasn’t received a dime of that money, despite the band’s making in excess of $12,470,000 while performing throughout the world.

Rose and the band are now managed by Doc McGhee, who has handled the careers of Kiss, Bon Jovi and Mötley Crüe. Azoff is widely credited for helping with Guns N’ Roses’ 2008 album, ‘Chinese Democracy,’ which took more than 15 years to create.
