  • LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Axl Rose is being sued by a famed music manager who claims the singer owes him nearly $2 million in unpaid commissions.

    Front Line Management, which was founded by Irving Azoff, sued Rose in Los Angeles on Thursday for nearly $1.9 million in unpaid fees. The company claims it had an oral agreement with Rose to receive 15 percent of the Guns N' Roses' front man's commissions.
