The NY Daily News is claiming that Axl Rose has been going through a rough patch lately:
The Guns N’ Roses front man, an admitted manic-depressive, has fired and rehired famed manager Irving Azoff at least three times in the last five weeks, according to a source. The reclusive rocker is said to be resisting Azoff’s pleas to try to revive sales of the band’s recent album, “Chinese Democracy.” “Axl doesn’t want anything to do with it,” says the insider. “He won’t come out of his house.”
A source close to Azoff admits, “Axl is Axl. People get hired and fired all the time in this business.”
But Azoff’s rep says that, as of last week, he and Rose are talking again: “We’re in daily contact with Axl, and we look forward to continuing to support him and Guns N’ Roses.”
Sure, and we all look forward to continuing to wait for him and/or Guns N’ Roses doing something that doesn’t suck.
