haha, I don't know what's more alarming... the fact Axl Rose listens to Schnauss or that they would copy songs

They had 17 years to write an album, and they STILL ripped somebody off.
You'd think they could have come up with an hours worth of original material given that amount of time...
Just sayin is all.
