Every Joke You Can Wring From This “Guns N’ Roses Ripping Off Ulrich Schnauss” Story Is Way Too Easy

axl 76x120 Every Joke You Can Wring From This “Guns N’ Roses Ripping Off Ulrich Schnauss” Story Is Way Too EasyAs if the instant denouement that greeted Guns N’ Roses long-in-the-works Chinese Democracy wasn’t sad enough, now comes the news that German electro-gaze composer Ulrich Schnauss is suing GNR frontman Axl Rose, along with Interscope-Geffen-A&M and a few people who have been associated with the Guns brand in recent years, for copyright infringement. Schnauss and two labels that distribute his work claim in the lawsuit that the track “Riad N’ The Bedouins” ripped off not one but two of his compositions, and as a result they want a million dollars in damages. Clips of all three tracks, after the jump!


Guns N’ Roses – “Riad N’ The Bedouins”



Ulrich Schnauss – “Wherever You Are”



Ulrich Schnauss – “A Strangely Isolated Place”



Oh, sigh. It is hard to think that one could blame this on “sloppiness,” given the painstaking way with which the album was apparently put together. Really, wouldn’t it have been less expensive for Rose to just hire Schnauss on for a couple of weeks?
