The current Guns N' Roses line-up's management team have taken extreme steps to distance themselves from their classic version, by banning anyone coming to their UK tour from wearing a Slash t-shirt.
During the band's gig at London's O2 Arena on May 31st, a member of the crowd was bare-chested under his jacket. When asked why, 18-year old James Revell said he was told to remove his top because no one was allowed in wearing a Slash T-shirt.
A member of the venue's team said: "We were told by the management not to allow anyone into the O2 Arena who is wearing a Slash t-shirt and we are asking anyone who is to remove it and if they refuse they will be turned away".
The band turned up well over an hour late and some people left after only 3 songs, as they had to catch the train back home.
The band have been roundly criticised on their UK tour for their late starts, even taking to the stage at 11:15 PM in Manchester on May 29th.
In the meantime, Slash released his new album "Apocalyptic Love", which has proved very popular among old GN'R fans.
I've seen GN'R live in Bucharest and was sad to notice Axl going backstage for oxygen every 2 minutes. I am looking forward to a Slash concert in Romania, but maybe next year.
