Legendary Guns N’ Roses frontman, Axl Rose, has finally settled a lawsuit brought against him by his longtime roadie, Chris Pitman. TMZ reported that Pitman — whowas an engineer for the band during their up-and-coming years — accepted a promissory note from Rose, who claimed to be facing financial hardships in 2011, for $125,000 to be paid by 2012.
Four years after the deadline came and went, without a word or a penny from his former employer, Pitman filed a lawsuit for $163,000 — the amount owed plus interest. He chose the right time, too. Guns N’ Roses has reportedly already grossed over $110 million for their ongoing reunion tour. TMZ is now reporting that Axl has settled the suit for an undisclosed amount.
And that concludes this chapter of “Debt, Drugs, and Rock & Roll.”
