Former Manager Alan Niven Responds to Negative Fan Comments
Two days ago, Former Guns N’ Roses manager Alan Niven spoke in an interview with Rock Journalist Mitch Lafon. Ultimate-Guitar has shared his statements here.
According to Alternative Nation, Alan Niven has reacted to negative comments on Ultimate-Guitar.
Gibson SG user commented:
“He just sounds bitter because he’s not in on the money to be honest.”
“Gibson SG user …. What’s bitter about pointing out three outa five ain’t no reunion? Would you call McCartney, Ringo, Joe Walsh and Joey Molland a Beatles reunion? My question is why an S.G.? Always loved the shape but everyone who plays a guitar knows there are better instruments.”
Just Ask Frank commented:
“This is a guitar website. Who cares what an ex-manager, not to mention someone who doesn’t even play an instrument, thinks? Why are 3/4 of the stories about G’n’R on this website quoted from this guy? The only thing in this article that’s even related to music is the question about Peter Criss and Steve Adler, a couple of drummers. The rest is gossip.”
“Just Ask Frank …. [is that a Zappa reference?] If it is may I humbly suggest that you shut up and play yer guitar.]
Yes. This is gossip. Well, more actually, casual conversation picked off a podcast, out of context and not specifically intended for Ultimate Guitar. Oh yeah. I have been a guitar player since my late teens.
Very intimidating to even mention that given some of the great players I have worked with. Ya might wonder, how it was I found and configured Slash’s primary recording guitar. [Know your GnR history]. Would suggest I have some idea about guitars, right?”

According to KOCO
Police are looking for a man accused of stealing a computer from an Oklahoma City library.
It happened Dec. 19 at a library near Southwest 59th Street and May Avenue. Library workers said the man unplugged the computer and slowly slipped it into his bag.
“There weren’t people next to him, so nobody saw him do this, and it wasn’t suspicious because he was actually using the computer,” said Kim Terry with the Metropolitan Library.
According to a police report, the computer is worth $1,000. The man is wearing a Green Bay Packers coat. His female accomplice was wearing a “Guns ‘n Roses” shirt.
