Rocker Matt Sorum has blasted Axl Rose for touring under the name GUNS N' ROSES, insiSting he should follow STING and Paul McCartney's leads and rename the group or go solo.
A former Guns N' Roses drummer, Sorum feels the rock group's name should only feature on tour tickets and albums when Rose is surrounded by his original members, including his Velvet Revolver bandmates Duff MCKagan and Slash.
He tells ThePulseofRadio.com, "I'm not saying I'm an original member, but I understand the core of the band is Slash and Duff and probably Izzy (Stradlin).
"This goes back to a Paul MCCartney thing. Does he call himself The Beatles? I'm not saying we were as big as The Beatles, but... Does Sting call himself The Police? No. Does Jimmy Page and Robert Plant go out there calling themselves Led Zeppelin? Nope."

Well Matt, Paul left The Beatles, not the other way around, and since the band was always Axl's, you should probably just be happy he made you a wealthy man and shut up about it.
