Guns N' Roses
On Monday, a story in the U.K.'s Daily Record claimed Axl Rose contacted a model agency to hire 20 women to fill the front row of Friday's Guns N' Roses concert in Glasgow. It's a claim the band is now denying. Guitarist Bumblefoot says if the women show up in the crowd and backstage, he's not going to complain, but it wasn't the band that requested them.
The induction of Guns N' Roses into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April gave us plenty to write about at the time. It was so controversial that, a month later, news is still coming out. Today we learned that Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong, who gave their induction speech, nearly sang lead vocals in place of Axl Rose, who declined to participate on the eve of the ceremony.
The 27th annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, which was held April 14 in Cleveland, Ohio, will be making its way to the masses via HBO this Saturday, May 5 (9:00-11:30 p.m. ET/PT). The special will feature highlights from the evening including inductions, speeches, performances, tributes and so on.
When Tom Cruise starred in 'Risky Business,' he only had to lip-sync the Bob Seger classic ‘Old Time Rock & Roll.’
But in the upcoming big-screen version of the Broadway hit 'Rock of Ages,' Cruise actually sings hits by Guns N' Roses and Def Leppard — and those renditions are part of the movie’s soundtrack, due June 5.
