Axl Rose Claims Guns N’ Roses Have Completed Another Album (And Then Some)

Despite rumors surfacing last month that the aging rock frontman would be calling it quits in the near future, Axl Rose is making headlines this week with the news he and his iconic rock band may soon have new music on shelves.

According to a new interview between Rose and our friends at Revolver, Guns N’ Roses have already completed work on a follow-up to Chinese Democracy. “We recorded a lot of things before Chinese was out,” Rose said. “We’ve worked more on some of those things and we’ve written a few new things. But basically, we have …

Watch Nicolas Cage Have A Fanboy Moment Over Axl Rose

We know we sometimes go overboard with our love of the great and timeless Hollywood icon known as Nicolas Cage, but there was absolutely no way we could pass up the opportunity to write about Cage freaking out about something music-related the way we do when our favorite bands do cool things.

Nicolas Cage made a surprise guest appearance earlier this week at Revolver’s annual Golden Gods heavy metal awards. The show was just beginning to wind down when the time came to present the lifetime achievement award to Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose, which was introduced by comedian …

WATCH: Guns N’ Roses – “Paradise City” From Upcoming 3D DVD ‘Appetite For Democracy’

There is so much heartbreak in writing this article. As someone who didn’t get into anything beyond radio music until his late teens (and I mean late), there is still a spot in my heart for Guns N’ Roses. Part of me wants (or wanted) to see them live, reunion lineup or no, just so I could have seen these songs sung live by a no-longer-fat Axl Rose.

Now, modern Guns N’ Roses have a live DVD coming up, filmed in 3D because apparently nothing says “music” like guitars coming towards you slightly while wearing glasses. They released …

Axl Rose Falls On Stage Because He Is Overwhelmingly Coordinated

There’s something about Axl Rose that really rubs me the wrong way. I don’t know what it is. Maybe it’s his inability to quit, maybe it’s the fact that he looks terrifying and I want to stop posting his picture. I know what you’re thinking: “Under the Gun Review, stop posting news about him then!” That would be the logical conclusion that any rational website would make. However in our offices we praise Nicolas Cage as the next coming of the messiah, so their must be something a little off about us.

In this gem of a video we get …

Axl Rose Robbed of Necklaces Worth $200,000, Nobody Else Decides to Care

Axl Rose of Guns N’ Roses at a recent show in Paris was robbed of 3 necklaces that in total was worth around $200,000, reports the NY Daily News. I want you to look at that number again. $200,000. That’s what my overpriced school is trying to charge me to learn for four years. That’s a small house. That’s more than a lot of people make in a year. And he wears that around his neck. And guess what? I really don’t care that they were stolen. And here’s why:

I’m writing this from a purely cynical “I do …

History Lesson

MUSIC HISTORY CLASS: Pumpkins and Spandex

On this day in 2000, the Smashing Pumpkins called it a day after twelve years and six albums. The breakup of the influential alternative rock quartet has been a mystery ever since their final, four-hour Chicago show in December of 2000. Singer Billy Corgan blamed anyone and everyone he could for the Smashing Pumpkins’ demise. He called bassist D’arcy Wretzky a “mean-spirited drug addict,” and later stated that guitarist James Iha was to blame. However, Iha would respond by stating, “No, I didn’t break up the band. The only person who could have done that is Billy.” Corgan even went …

Guns N’ Roses Request 20 Young Female Models To Fill The Front Row At An Upcoming Gig

Axl Rose has never been one to play it tame, and his latest shenanigans are no different.

According to an article on DailyRecord, Guns N’ Roses have requested 20 beautiful female models, ages 19-23, be placed in the front row for the band’s upcoming performance in Glasgow.

That’s right: Models, not fans, come first.

Apparently, someone from GnR hired All Talent – The Sonia Scott Agency – to recruit the girls. As compensation for appearing at the gig, the girls will be granted backstage access after the concert, as well as the opportunity to party with the band.

Axl Rose Writes Letter To Cleveland, Fans

Axl Rose took to social media this evening to address his fans directly in regards to his recent absence from Guns N’ Roses induction to the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame.

Guns N’ Roses Don’t Care About You, Will Go On When They Want

Guns N’ Roses have been plagued since day one of their return with a tendency to arrive on stage a bit later than usual. In the past, frontman Axl Rose has sworn to press that there was good cause for these delays, but a new message from the band makes us think differently.

Yesterday on the band’s Facebook, Rose wrote “Love it Hate it Accept it Debate it – You want 8 o’clock shows go find F-R-I-E-N-D-S or hit a cinema somewhere.. or you wanna be informed go catch the 10 o’clock news.. this is Rock N’ Roll! Treat …
