New management team for G N’R

I am very pleased to announce that Guns N’ Roses and I are now represented by the management team of Irving Azoff and Andy Gould. We are very excited and look forward to working with them and hope our relationship proves beneficial for everyone, especially the fans.

Azoff and Gould are both considered POWERHOUSES in the music industry. We are talking as big as David Geffen once was. Derek Sivers had this to say about Irving Azoff:

In the 70s, his management style was characterized by complex manipulations and dramatic about-faces that he and his clients seemed to find much more humorous than his opponents. Even during his decade as head of MCA, he was known to be fiercely loyal to his former clients, many of whom have returned now that he is back on the management side. His most famous quote is "I never met an asshole in the record business I didn't like."

Sounds like a perfect fit with Axl. He also co-produced the film, Fast Times at Ridgemont High (Mack Arillo's favorite movie!).
