In what may prove to be a jarring legal setback for artists who live next door to famous people and want to try and use that proximity as the basis for an unauthorized exhibit, Axl Rose has issued a cease-and-desist notice to the exhibitor behind the L.A. art show titled 'Axl Rose Was My Neighbor.'
The feud between Axl Rose and Nirvana at the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards began with a taunt from everyone's favorite hot mess, Courtney Love.

Axl Rose's ongoing quest to wrest a $20 million judgment from video game makers Activision was dealt a setback yesterday (August 14), when a judge indicated Rose's allegations of fraud would be dismissed -- but he allowed another claim in the suit to stand, leaving the legal battle open for another round.
Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan has been spitting a ton of venom lately while doing interviews for the release of the band's latest album, 'Oceania.' Whether declaring his desire to "piss on Radiohead" or calling former guitarist James Iha a "piece of s--t," Corgan hasn't been holding back in the least.

All's well that ends well. Turns out that the woman who jacked $200,000 in jewelry from Axl Rose in Paris on Tuesday (June 5) was "really just an excited fan," according to a tweet issued by Rose himself. The three stolen gold-and-diamond necklaces were returned to the Guns N' Roses singer after the thief, who admitted to mistakenly stealing the baubles, was taken into custody.
