Guns N’ Roses Management Team Brazil Has An Ever Changing Story Over the Copyright Takedowns
Guns N’ Roses management company Team Brazil has rightfully caught a lot of flak from fans over their handling (or mishandling of) the copyright takedowns. Well Beta Lebeis who is part of Team Brazil and Axl Rose’s personal assistant has provided two contradictory statements over why fan videos have been removed off YouTube and other social media platforms. Her first explanation (translated from Portugese) is as follows: (notice how she says she has no clue who is taking down the videos and it’s good promotion) then she posted a comment on a fan’s facebook page who is being blamed for being behind the takedowns. (see her response below) and claims that the individual is not behind the takedowns and then she claims the “illegal videos will continue to be taken down.” So what is it Beta? You don’t know who is behind the takedowns and you support band videos being on social media platforms and YouTube to promote the group or you do know who is behind the takedowns and will continue to remove the videos? Which is it?

Fan Who Guns N’ Roses Banned for Life From Their Future Shows Gives First Interview
Rick Dunsford whose a huge Guns N’ Roses fan whose named his son Axl, seen them 32 times and had their signatures tattooed on his body gave his first interview since being booted from a show in Wichita, Kansas this week. He was allegedly banned for buying unreleased Guns N’ Roses songs from a storage locker that was up for sale and these songs have made their way online. You can hear the interview here.
Dunsford said the following in the interview.
“I’ve got a lot of friends that go to various shows. When they were playing in Charlotte for the tour kickoff [Sept. 25], I got word that they were looking for me. They were asking everybody in the crowd, ‘Where’s Rick?’ And they had pictures of me too,”
“I reached out to them the day after that show and told them I’m coming to some shows — I’ve got tickets to multiple shows — and I wanna make sure that I’m not gonna be thrown out, because it’s a pretty far travel for me to go to this,” he continued. “They didn’t tell me not to come or anything, so I just went out there [to Wichita].”
Dunsford said while he was waiting in line for the Wichita show, he received an email from GN’R’s legal representative telling him he’s not welcome at the band’s performances. The reason? They blame him for a massive leak of unreleased GN’R material.
“About two and a half months ago, I drove to Virginia, and there was a storage locker that belonged to Tom Zutaut [former GN’R A&R Rep],” Dunsford recalled. “He didn’t pay his bills or something and it was auctioned off. The individual that bought the locker, there was about 20 CDs in this locker of unreleased Guns N’ Roses music from around ’99 to 2000 or 2001.” He and a few other fans scraped up $15,000 to purchase the music from the guy who now owned the locker.
The band’s camp reached out to Dunsford asking for the material back, an agreement was made and they gave him his money back, however they later voided the agreement. “I know the seller that I bought them from was continuing to sell to other individuals, and there was a massive leak. So pretty much, I’ve been blamed for this,” he said.
“[The ban] is pretty much for the rest of my life, is what the head of security in that video was telling me,” he concluded. “They made it clear that if I am spotted at all, I will be arrested on the spot…I was supposed to go see them this Sunday.”
