Guns N’ Roses are by being sued by German artist Ulrich Schnauss for allegedly ‘sampling’ two of his tracks on their 2008 studio album Chinese Democracy.

Schnauss, represented by Independiente in the UK and Domino Records in the US, say that Guns N’Roses album track “Riad N’ the Bedouins” uses parts of Ulrich’s songs “Wherever You Are” and “A Strangely Isolated Place”.

Guns N’Roses manager Irving Azoff has contested the $1 million lawsuit, saying in a press statement: “Guns N’ Roses vigorously contests these claims and intends to respond accordingly. The band believed when the record came out and still believes that there are no unauthorised samples on the track.”

Chinese Democracy was Guns N’Roses‘ first studio album for 17 years.
