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?

I seem to recall another band who went through a similar schism: Pink Floyd. Roger Waters tried to pull the same stunt that Axl Rose is trying to pull; he lost. For several years his career was in the doldrums while Pink Floyd's popularity soared. Finally he realized what an ass he was being and buried the hatchet; but not before his credibility was seriously dented.

I voted for Slash's band but I think Axl has the better voice. Too bad he is such a used tampon.

I thought they were amazing at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. I saw GNR in the late 80's and they were great; but I would never pay to see Axl and the current GNR line up. I think Axl Rose needs to seriously grow up. I'm glad that he wasn't there, these guys sounded much better and did a great job. I think Steven Adler is one of the best drummers ever!!

Axl is nothing but a prima donna prick. His "version" of GnR sounds like complete crap. But the one thing that makes Slash's GnR the real GnR....Slash and his guitar riffs.

While it would be sweet to see Slash and Duff and co. under the name of Guns and Roses, Slash and the others left the group (granted to get away from Axl) whereas Axl has never abandoned the name and is the only original member of the group...doesn't that make the name rightfully his?

I literally wouldn't walk down the street if Axl Rose was playing at a festival and it was free. He's a egomaniacal (expletive). Seen both he and Slash interviewed, and it's clear as crystal who has class and who doesn't.
