GNR: Axl Doesn’t Want To Be In Your Picture Show
Axl Rose has filed a cease and desist against a photographer, arguing that she is using his fame to promote her career.
Laura London has an exhibit opening in Los Angeles Saturday called “Once upon a time … Axl Rose was my neighbor.” London claims her main piece — a photograph of a garage door with “Sweet Child o’ Die you R 1 of many nothing special ” spray-painted on it — shows Rose’s garage as he painted it long ago during a fight with then-wife Erin Everly.
The letter from Rose’s attorney says that statement and the photograph are “outrageous, false, fabricated and highly defamatory…Mr. Rose never spray-painted anything. Your salacious and inflammatory statements are plainly designed to garner attention and line your pockets with money.” Rose is demanding an apology and wants the art show cancelled.
