Alan Niven was the first manager of Guns N’ Roses. According to Niven, he took a job that no one else would. “I knew what I was getting into: Half the band were smack addicts.” Against the wishes of several GN’R members, Axl Rose fired Niven in 1991.

Axl Rose also wrote an open letter to fans when he fired Merck Mercuriadis in 2006, and filed a $5 million lawsuit against former manager Irving Azoff, claiming that Azoff sabotaged the record sales of ‘Chinese Democracy’ and lied about a “super tour” with Van Halen.
