Rose,axl A former manager for Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose is claiming the rocker violated an oral agreement to pay 15% of earnings from a lucrative concert tour.

Irving Azoff's Front Line Management claims in a lawsuit filed today in Los Angeles Superior Court that it was hired in 2008, before Rose embarked on a worldwide tour that brought in more than $12,470,000 from stops in Asia and South America.

Front Line's cut of the loot is more than $1,870,500, it claims. The complaint alleges causes of action for breach of contract, common count and accounting.
