Axl Rose lives in a world all his own, I think, and in that world he is the only true Guns and Roses member that should be represented in a video game performance. Fans love the fact that they can see the old band.

According to the San Marino Tribune A judge has dismissed what remained of Guns N’ Roses singer Axl Rose’s lawsuit alleging Activision Blizzard Inc. broke a promise not to use images of ex-bandmate Slash or songs by the guitarist’s new band in the “Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock” video game.

In January, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Charles Palmer arguments concerning the lawsuit’s contract claims of fraud and broken promises. On Thursday, he affirmed his tentative ruling and tossed out the remaining causes of action.

The San Marino Tribune also reports that Rose’s lawyer Geoffrey Neri said in the original hearing that Axl agreed to allow the use of “Welcome to the Jungle” but only if no images of the old GNR lineup or of Slash’s new  band, Velvet Revolver, were used.

When the agreement was struck, Axl expressed his objections through his lawyers during production, but he claims Activision went forward anyway, according to the argument.

What it came down to was that nothing was really signed on paper and that the agreement was verbal at best.
