Guns n' Roses To Play Brazil in '08?

April 15, 2008 10:41 AM ET

According to Brazilian newspaper Folha, some formation of Guns n' Roses will perform live in the South American country later this year. To quote the paper, "As bandas Red Hot Chili Peppers e Guns N' Roses vireo para o Brasil neste ano." We're assuming that means Anthony Keidis and Co. will play Brazil too. Exact dates and locations for the supposed Gn'R shows have not been announced. The Folha report comes more than four months after they printed a story in which one concert promoter said there were "good chances" Axl Rose would play there in the third quarter of '08. The Brazilian tour plans are just the latest round of rumors surrounding Gn'R. The past month has seen Chinese Democracy supposedly being completed and handed off to the record companies, Rose on the verge of starring in a reality TV show, Gn'R signing with a top management team and Rose thanking Dr. Pepper for their support.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
