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?

Myles Kennedy is amazing and a class act. Axl should take note.

It a damn shame Axl and the band couldn't sort their crap out for this. It would have been amazing! Having said that the dude who replaced Axl in that footage did a pretty good job. What I would love to know is what the hell did Slash and the rest do to Axl for him to hold a grudge for so long?

Anyone who says Slash IS/made Guns N Roses is completely delusional. Anyone listen to Myles Kennedy try to sing Axl's vocals??? Please!! Axl was not only has a unique voice, but he had such fierce passion and showmanship skills.

Axl sounded fantastic in NY this past Feb.

Guns N Roses was made by a group of 5 guys. Period. Everyone deserves their due credit. Taking sides is juvenile ANC pointless.

Slash is a sellout, Adler is a sad, sad junkie and Duff has been a non-presence for many years. Myles Kennedy seems adequate but he is not Axl. It can't be GNR without him and his voice, which he knows and is hellbent on keeping it that way. Is he a ****? Sure. But maybe there is good reason for his problems with Slash. Who knows... and I guess who cares. They're all pretty irrelevant now, lulz!

The Miles' voice is horrible compared to Axl's voice. Besides everything Axl has charisma and the gunners love him! Guns n Roses are AXL!!

i think its a shame and a waste of talent for this bitter old man who back in 1986 at the tender age of 15-16 i idolized and gave them the biggest wall in my room- the whole thing- his talent is amazing- his vocal range is phenomenal- sure, hes put on weight and got his face did- a few times perhaps more- him refusing to set the hatchet aside and accept the fact that people want to recognize YOU and the rest of the original band as being a great part music history- i am disappoint- you are an attention whore- respectfully- you would have gotten more attention that would have made you feel so much better than that sugar coated pool of bile you sit in festering on 25 years of something that should have been laughed at over beers long before now- grow up- :P

Axl Rose is an idiot. Sure, he named the band but he also tried to destroy it. I love GNR.

I don't care of you like Axl or not, GNR is not GNR without him singing, and vice-verse.

Imo, Axl has always been the heart and soul of GNR. Slash's playing was just the icing on top of the cake. I can count on one hand the number of great guitar riffs Slash made. The rest were decent. The only thing that takes GNR from 'good' to 'mind-****ing-excellent' are Axl's lyrics, at least for me.
