Original Guns N' Roses Members

Screw Axl ...

We Got a NEW Singer

No Axl? No problem.

The other original members of Guns N' Roses -- Slash, Duff and Steven Adler -- didn't let Axl Rose's boycott of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame keep them from performing some of GNR's greatest hits this weekend ... they just used a different singer.

The band hit the stage with Myles Kennedy on lead vocals ... busting out hits like "Sweet Child O' Mine" and "Paradise City."

FYI -- Myles was the singer on Slash's solo album ... and also fronts the band Alter Bridge.

A judge already ruled that Axl owns the name Guns N' Roses ... and he still tours under the the GNR banner ... but who DESERVES the title? Axl and his band ... or Slash, Duff, Steven and the replacement?

Axl ruined what could have been the greatest rock N roll band ever. You have to give Axl credit for staying consistent and not wavering in his feud with the original band!

This guy easily sings 1,000% better than Axl Rose. I saw GnR during the Appetite & Illusion tours, and by Illusion Axl's voice was SHOT. He was also a complete jerk who left fans waiting for hours and hours for his primadonna ass to take the stage.

I'd totally go see Slash & Duff's band singing Guns tunes. Why not just call it Guns?

Axl Rose got famous on Slash & Duff's back. They totally carried him. The worst thing about GnR was Axl's "singing". Fun fact: Axl's vocals were ALWAYS auto tuned. Ask any recording engineer that worked with them back in the day.

What a moron.

Bias much TMZ? You're not giving us ANY real information. Who founded GNR? Who named the band originally? I mean, a judge wouldn't just give the name to Axl for no reason. I don't like the guy, but if it's his name, it's his name.

I think Slash's group has more of the original members in it and less of the fluff added musicians than Axel's group, so I voted for it, but I think they really all need to be together for it to be real. Where is Izzy, did he die or something? No one mentioned him in this article.


I don't think this singer has the same feeling and panache as Axel, and Axel's band doesn't have the same edge and spirit as Slash's band, so either way you get a watered down version.
