Welcome To The Courtroom

Axl Rose filed a lawsuit against former Guns N' Roses bandmate Slash on Friday in an attempt to solidify the reign over his "own creative works" --  the copyrights to all G'n'R albums. Slash and the other former members filed a suit last October declaring, in essence, that Rose was hoarding the songs and wasn't allowing the other members to make any money off of licensing. The back and forth of the matter will remain thorny, with aggressive banter like that of the official press release: "Slash's actions, whether in or out of Guns N' Roses, have been a complete betrayal across the board of his alleged friendship and business relationship with Axl."

You know what else qualifies as betrayal, Axl? Do cornrows ring a bell?
