MSL has shared new insight on former Guns N’ Roses keyboardist/engineer Chris Pitman’s lawsuit against Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose on GNRTruth.
“As we reported months ago, Pitman and GNR were having disagreements over money and the tension spilled into the public arena when Pitman opened his mouth on social media. At that point, he either quit or was fired depending on which side you speak with.
But the idea that he would be owed money from years ago is totally believable to me because when I’ve spoken to band members over the years, that’s been a common complaint.
There are two sides to every story and I’m sure GNR is not happy about the horrible position Pitman put them in when he used somebody else’s copyrighted works for Riad. They may have a different opinion of who owes who for what.
But to blanketly dismiss the idea that Pitman may be owed money from years is not something I’m willing to do. Seems very possible. May or may not be true. I have no idea.”
The lawsuit alleges that Axl Rose wrote Pitman a promissory note for the $125,000 he was owed for more than a year’s worth of work. In the suit, Pitman says that amount was supposed to be paid by October 2012, but Axl never paid.
