Axl Rose's Activision Lawsuit Dismissed

A Los Angeles Superior Court Judge has dismissed what remained of Axl Rose's lawsuit against Activision over Slash and Welcome to the Jungle appearing in Guitar Hero 3, reports The San Marino Tribune. Rose objected to the way this associated Slash with Guns N' Roses, even though Slash played guitar for the band for 11 years, including on that song (most of his comments on the situation were hard to understand). An earlier portion of this suit was dismissed because Rose filed his court papers too late, which may not come as a surprise to fans who waited 15 years for the release of Chinese Democracy. Thanks TheWeaponeer.
