Outspoken Neil's scathing attack on the November Rain star comes after his latest album Chinese Democracy, the band's first since 1993's The Spaghetti Incident, failed to live up to the hype its 10 years in the making generated. The veteran singer believes GNR's loyal fans have finally grown sick of the band, thanks chiefly to Rose's failure to turn up to rehearsals and perform live shows. He told The Sun: "For it to fail was pretty crazy after so many years of being recorded. Then the tour got cancelled. "A buddy of mine went to go play guitar for him. They rehearsed for three months and Axl never once turned up. Rule number one: show up! "He's been doing that for many years. Finally I think the fans just went, 'F*** it - can't do this anymore.' "You can't be a fan when you can't see the band." The LP, estimated to have cost around £8 million, had to settle for third place behind KANYE WEST and TAYLOR SWIFT in the US albums chart when it was released in November last year. Neil added: "I heard one track and then it just disappeared off the radio. It was never talked about again." http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/showb...-up-on-him.htmlRelated forum discussion:http://www.mygnrforum.com/index.php?showto...t=0&start=0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
