Axl Rose heckled for extreme weight gain
By Kim Palacios
hollywoodnews.com: Former Guns ‘n Roses front man Axl Rose was unrecognizable on Monday night when he appeared in Brazil to play a show with his old band. Photos of the performance showed the star in a yellow zoot suit, a studded black hat and dark glasses, looking vastly different from photos as recent as summer 2010. The star had previously been called a ‘fat Botox-faced wig wearer’ by former Stone Temple Pilot and Velvet Revolver front-man Scott Weiland, who played alongside former Guns ‘n Roses guitarist, Slash, in the latter of the two bands.
Rose made headlines last year when he sued Guitar Hero creator Activision for $20 million, claiming its use of the Guns ‘n Roses hit “Welcome to the Jungle” violated a an agreement to include any imagery of ex-guitarist Slash within the game Guitar Hero III. “This lawsuit is about protecting Guns N’ Roses and ‘Welcome to the Jungle,’ and is about holding Activision accountable for its misuse of these incredibly valuable assets,” said Rose’s lawyer, Skip Miller, at the time, though Rose’s intentions and conduct in the matter have since come under scrutiny.
