Axl Rose Has His Thorns, But Harley-Davidson Likes To Be Pricked

Yes, I know I'm mixing lyrics and performers up, but it's true the man's got a thorny past. I mean, how many performers do you know who can blow $15 million and 20 years on coke and booze — finally reemerging now as "Version 2.0" (pictured to the right) with what may perhaps be the first single from the album? Ony Axl Rose. The man and the band he calls Guns n' Roses now have at least something recorded — and even more startlingly, Harley Davidson's dropped it into their latest ad. The name of the song and the commercial are, appropriately enough, "black sheep." Our brother/sister site devoted to their maddeningly obsessive love of music, has all the deets.
