Axl Rose - Rose's Guitar Hero Lawsuit Heading To Trial

Subscribe Axl Rose

A judge in Los Angeles has given Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose permission to move forward with his lawsuit against the manufacturers of the popular Guitar Hero video game series.
The singer filed a $20 million (£13.3 million) lawsuit against bosses at Activision Blizzard last year (10), alleging they reneged on the terms of a deal to include a Guns N' Roses song in Guitar Hero Iii: Legends of Rock.
Rose claims he only let Welcome To The Jungle be included in the game if Activision bosses agreed not to team it with any images of the band's former guitarist, Slash.
The rocker has filed suit over allegations company executives broke that promise by featuring "an animated depiction of Slash" on the cover of the game.
The case went to court on Thursday (10Mar11) and after a brief hearing, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Charles Palmer agreed the lawsuit can proceed and scheduled the trial for 23 January, 2012.
