Where would you be now, had you not obtained the rights to the name? What would you have called the current line-up of GNR?
Key-Mo

Did you ever feel the name as a burden, or were you always sure that it's right to keep the name?

What do you think about people saying "it is not GNR anymore. It is an Axl-Rose-Solo-joint"? And did you ever think about using another name for the band?

The most concise way I could put it;

What is the difference between former members forwarding their careers through their association with you, and a band benefiting from touring/releasing under a name originally associated with a group of musicians who are no longer there?

Actually written down, I'm not sure that makes as much sense as it did in my head :tongue2:

For the people that may be wondering (not that I am one)...

Did you use the GNR name to sell more records??

The ownership of the name Guns N' Roses.

Bold topic. :xmasssanta: I'll try to keep this thread clean to make it easy for you. (I'll be deleting doubles of the same question).

Obviously the name Guns N' Roses means a lot to you historically - do you think it would have been easier (less criticism from being the only "original" remaining member) or harder (the name obviously carries a lot of weight) to have pursued the Chinese Democracy project under a different name.

Some of you are seriouslly missing the point, only ask him questions about the GnR name in this thread.

Basically we''ve heard other versions of how it went down (the band would end right there and then unless the rest of them signed the name over to you and give you full control), but what are your view of the events that happened?

Did you already have a new lineup or a lineup change in mind at that time?

Come on people the man gave us a topic which is "the ownership of the name Guns n Roses", so ask your questions about that. Shouldn't be so hard to understand and let him answer in peace, no need to rush! :)

Did you have an idea or a feeling back then in the early 90's that the group may fall apart so you took the rights for the name and wanted to secure the future of the group because of that?

To you, what is the definition of "Guns N' Roses"? ie., what (except for legal reasons) would make you change the name of the band you're playing in?
