The worst story I think I've heard regarding the ownership 'battle' was that you got some of the other members to sign off on it by refusing to get on stage to perform during a concert - and 'forced' them to sign off right then and there. Is there any truth to this story? And could you clarify the circumstances?

Not off topic but related to the GN'RTM , i've always wondered...

How do/did you feel about Velvet Revolver playing GN'R songs live? Did you worry about them mucking up the songs or decreasing their value by playing them. Are you glad the former members still play those songs so regularly on stage?

I seen Slashes Snakepit live in July 95 and they started playing instrumental Paradise city for the first 2 minutes before Slash stopped it by jokingly saying something like” We better stop so we don’t get sued!”

Do you think they keep suing you over it time and again because as well as Steven they think you and the name GnR hold the keys to their happiness or is it just about $ ?

Even if it personally doesn`t matter to me if this is Gnr or Axl ".." whatever (cause in the end, it is about great music), my question would be:

Have you haver questioned yourself if this is wrong what you are doing with the band name?? I don`t know, but maybe sometimes you watched an old live concert or something like that, and you have the feeling, that you can understand people for attacking you on this, because what you (might) see and remember, is what made people fall in love with this (old) band?

Axl, a few years ago, Slash and Duff sued you in an attempt to stop your publication deal by asserting that you did not have ownership of the old GnR name. Can you tell us the circumstances under which you acquired the name? Was there a deal in place in which if they left the band you became the sole owner of the name? Did you buy out their shares of the name?

Unfortunately, it seems like people have struggled to grasp the concept of this topic.

Fortunately, there have been some excellent questions asked that have been retained. Plenty here now, so i'm going to lock this, and if Axl feels like answering a couple, then i'm sure he will post up a thread with responses in due course.

Thanks to those who listened and "got" it. :)
