Ex Guns N' Roses Manager Slams Axl Rose

Ex-Guns N' Roses manager Alan Niven has listed the major mistakes that he thinks singer Axl Rose has made since taking over the band and parting with all the original members. Niven, who handled the band during its late '80s/early '90s success, told Brave Words, "Axl made two huge mistakes: one was releasing (2008 Guns N' Roses album Chinese Democracy) and the other was working with (recent) manager Irving Azoff. I'd have done everything in my power to make sure (the album) was something people always talked about and wondered about -- but never got to completely hear."
