Axl Rose has denied releasing a press statement regarding the rumored LAX incident. Here's the statement on the Guns N Roses MySpace about that (the same place where the LAX release was posted as well):

"I did not release any statement or authorize either any statement or anyone to release a statement regarding anything at any airport anywhere.

"We had recently began working with newer individuals in management in relation to our current Asian tour in support of our Guns N' Roses album 'Chinese Democracy' in addition to Irving Azoff's though as it happens we are once again touring Asia without management of any kind.

"Imo this non sense may be some type of manufactured or publicity stunt.

"We're looking forward to performing in Osaka and Tokyo Japan doubling our pyro show and with our "new" full stage as local requirement have limited us on its use in our last performances.

"Thanks to everyone who's come out to see us. It's been really fun so far and the addition of our new guitarist Dj Ashba joining us along w/ guitarists Ron Bumblefoot Thal and Richard Fortus, gives the night a kick in the pants.

"Hope to see the rest of you soon!!

"And to any publications running this; please feel free to tack on whatever negative agenda supporting nonsense you generally do (You know who you are!!). After all it's only someone else's livelihood you media police state, no fun, spoil sport, communist bastards.


The band is currently in Seoul, South Korea where the promoter was "sorry" to inform them they would not be able to use a helicopter from the airport to the venue as North Korea would "wonder" what it is.
