Axl Rose Sweet Sex Cane O' Mine

6/10/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0609-axl-rose-cool-nude-cane-sculpture-metal-with-arrow-TMZ-AKMGSI-01This is NOT your grandfather's cane -- unless your grandfather is super pervy or Axl Rose.

Rose has been hobbling around England this week using a walking stick, but little did we know what's under his hand is the most badass, rock 'n' roll senior citizen accessory ever.

The stick's sterling silver handle features a naked couple doing, um ... what naked couples do.

Axl's slowly recovering from his broken foot, but once he's fully healed -- he's gotta keep this thing handy. 

Limping's never been so pimpin'!


Guns N' Roses Lana Del Rey's in With the Band ... But NOT Opening Act

4/18/2016 1:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0418_lana_del_rey_gnr_instagramBad news for any Guns N' Roses fans hoping to see Lana Del Rey warm up crowds on their tour.

The moody indie singer is NOT opening for GNR despite a flurry of rumors after Lana posted a pic wearing a jacket that read "Lana Del Rey Guns N' Roses 2016 Tour."

We're told Axl Rose gifted the personalized satin tour jackets to his friends and family. Lana was one of a couple dozen who got the hookup. Sources close to the unexpected pals tell us they've been tight for years.

We're told Lana met Axl through a mutual friend -- her ex-boyfriend Justin Murdock, billionaire heir to the Dole Food Company.

Lana ditched Murdock in 2012, but she obviously got Axl in the breakup. 


Guns N' Roses Coachella Goes Wild

4/17/2016 6:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It was all about Guns N' Roses Saturday at Coachella ... clearly the highlight of the festival.

Axl and the boys slayed with "Sweet Child O' Mine," and went on for an astounding 3 hours ... well, a skosh shy of 3 hours.    

Axl was confined to his throne -- courtesy of fellow broken-legger Dave Grohl -- but midway through their set he brought on Angus Young, telling the crowd someone needed to jump around the stage.

BTW ... AC/DC announced Axl will be their lead singer for their world tour, because Brian Johnson was in such bad shape hearing-wise he was afraid he'd go deaf on the road.


GNR Coachella-Bound Tour Bus Breaks Down

4/16/2016 8:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Guns N' Roses had a rocky start to their Coachella appearance when their tour bus broke down in Fontana.

Axl and the guys were not on board.  According to the person who was present, the bus was on the way to Indio to pick up the band, which is headlining Saturday night.  It sat gimpily for 3 hours.

The bus got some quick repairs and tooled down the freeway.

Good luck to it.


4:15 PM PT -- We got video of the band headed to Coachella. Looks like the bus made it there in one piece! 

Guns N' Roses Celeb Fans Flocked to Reunion Gig ... If They Had the Juice

0402-gnr-gallery-launch-01The Guns N' Roses reunion show at the Troubadour wasn't a concert, it was really a celebrity round of ... "Who's Got More Pull?"

In other words, who's got enough weight in Hollywood to get a golden GNR ticket -- and the winners ran the gamut: Nicolas Cage, Kate Hudson, Bradley Cooper, Jim Carrey, Chris Brown and more.

Of course, Slash's old high school buddy Lenny Kravitz was there too.

Ya think they paid for the $10 ticket?

Guns N' Roses We're in the House! Well, Most of Us Are ...

4/1/2016 6:18 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Guns N' Roses just started arriving at the famed Troubadour in West Hollywood for Friday night's epic show ... and they look like they mean business.

We got video of Slash, Duff McKagan, Richard Fortus, and Dizzy Reed as they showed up at the Troubadour to a throng of screaming fans. The guys didn't sign autographs or pose for pics. Pretty clear they're focused on the concert.

No sign of Axl Rose, but it's possible he arrived way earlier than the rest of the band.


Seriously though ... check out this shot of the Troubador stage. This is really freakin' going down!


Guns N' Roses Fans Trying to Get THOUSANDS Off $10 Investment

Exclusive Details

0401-gnr-wristband-craigslist-orgGuns N' Roses fans are turning their $10 wristbands into huge moneymakers ... possibly getting up to $4,000 for just one of the golden tickets to Friday night's show. 

One lucky fan who waited in line Friday morning to snag a wristband for the Troubadour gig immediately went to Craigslist and listed it for $2,000. The seller says he's gotten a ton of offers -- one for $4k, which would be about a 40,000% markup!  

The twist? GNR's said the wristbands are non-transferable, so without a way to prove you're the original owner ... you might still be SOL depending on what security asks at the door. 

Wanna gamble?


Guns N' Roses L.A. Cops Mobilize for Ticket Giveaway ... Not April Fools

4/1/2016 7:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



10:05 AM PT -- Guns N' Roses just made the concert official for tonight at the Troubadour ... tickets are $10, so basically a giveaway. Fans can check out a ton of memorabilia and other GNR merch at the old Tower Records store where Slash used to work.


Guns N' Roses are about to rock the City of Angels with an impromptu concert ... and cops are assembling on the Sunset Strip for the mad dash to get a seat. 

Law enforcement tells us they have a ton of Sheriff's deputies setting up around the old Tower Records ... in anticipation of the GNR announcement at 10 AM.

0401-sub-guns-n-roses-tmz-04We're told there will be 250 tickets given away at noon for the concert -- first come, first serve.  

Cops are expecting hundreds of fans to descend upon Tower Records when the announcement is made. It's still unknown when and where the actual performance will go down.

And get this ... we just got pics from the Troubadour and you can clearly see "GNR" on the equipment outside. Smells like a show to us.




Matt Sorum Ex GNR Drummer Tight-Lipped on Coachella

1/9/2016 6:58 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

So who's playing drums when Guns N' Roses reunites at Coachella? Matt Sorum seems a likely candidate, which is why our LAX encounter was so important.

Slash, Duff McKagan, and even Axl Rose have signed on, but no word on the skins.  

Check out the video ... we can't figure out if Matt's in or out.

Matt played drums from 1990 - '97. Frank Ferrer assumed the role in '06, but with former members reuniting, Matt could be the likely choice. 

Guns N' Roses Reuniting At Coachella

Breaking News

1229-guns-n-roses-axl-GETTY-01Guns N' Roses -- complete with founding members Axl Rose and Slash -- will reunite to headline the Coachella Music & Arts Festival in April 2016 ... this according to several reports.

The plan is for GNR to then go out on tour in the summer of 2016 and to possibly be one of the first acts to play the new Las Vegas Arena.

Axl and Slash haven't played together since a concert in Buenos Aires in 1993.

Guns N' Roses Holy Crap ... Sweet Child O' Mine Is a Rip-Off?!?

5/11/2015 8:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0511-guns-n-roses-getty-01Prepare to have your mind blown ... the most iconic Guns N' Roses song -- "Sweet Child O' Mine" -- was totally jacked from an Australian soft rock band ... maybe.

An Australian website, Max TV, recently made the comparison, and there's no denying ... the similarity is eerie. Here's the deal ... a group called Australian Crawl recorded and released a hit song called, "Unpublished Critics" in 1981. 'Sweet Child' didn't come out until 1987.

For the record ... Axl Rose, Slash, and Izzy Stradlin have a very detailed story about how they created 'Sweet Child' -- and it doesn't include listening to Aussie top 40 radio.

A member of Australian Crawl has already acknowledged how close the guitar riffs and melodies are -- but says he's cool with it. In other words, this probably won't be a "Blurred Lines" situation.

Still, if you're a GnR fan -- this kinda stings. At least the Guns version is better.

Slash Yes, I Once Drugged My GF's Mom So We Could Bang on the Couch

7/28/2014 1:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Slash was once so desperate to get laid ... he and a girlfriend drugged her mother, and then had sex right next to her while she slept -- and best of all ... he was 13.

The guitar god made the confession when we asked him about the craziest place he's ever banged ... fully expecting some story about life on the road during the Guns n' Roses heyday.

We definitely were NOT expecting this pubescent/criminal tale.

You've gotta hear Slash explain the whole caper, but the take away? In his words, "There's no ridiculous place [to bone] ... if you can get away with it."

The more you know.

Slash I LOVE Axl... (The Baby)

9/16/2013 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rock-n-roll legend Slash has no love for ex-Guns N' Roses bandmate Axl Rose -- they have a 20-year feud and no one really remembers why -- but he still thinks Axl is a great name for a kid.

Slash -- sans trademark tophat and wearing a backward ballcap -- hit up The Sayers Club in Hollywood last week ... and had nothing but love for Fergie and Josh Duhamel's baby -- who they are rumored to have named after Axl Rose.

"I think it's really cool, I actually talked to [Fergie and Josh] yesterday, " Slash told us. "It's all good ... who am I to judge?"
