GUNS N' ROSES File Lawsuit Against GEFFEN To Halt Release Of 'Greatest Hits'

GUNS N' ROSES have filed a lawsuit against Geffen Records, a division of UMG Recordings, Inc., to stop the "unauthorized" release of a "Greatest Hits" package by the band. The lawsuit. which was filed in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, seeks a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction against the release.

According to the lawsuit which was filed by W. Axl Rose and former bandmembers Slash and Duff McKagan GUNS N' ROSES have not been given the opportunity to approve the choice of songs, the artwork, the release date or the re-mastering done on the tracks included on this compilation.

GUNS N' ROSES have sold over 80 million albums worldwide almost 40 million in the U.S. alone and founding member W. Axl Rose is said to be concerned that the group's audience will not only be misled into believing that the planned compilation is an authorized release, but that it will hinder the release of the band's long-awaited new studio album, "Chinese Democracy". There has been a massive outcry among the band's loyal audience against the "Greatest Hits" record, as "they too believe the track selection is fundamentally flawed, does not reflect the band's best work and is clearly not the ultimate package that would be selected by the band or their fan base if they were given the opportunity," according to an official statement from GNR's management. "They have flooded the offices of Geffen Records' senior executives with thousands of emails over the last few weeks expressing their dissent."

.....I don't get it
