Guns N’ Roses vs. Ulrich Schnauss


This one popped up in the news today.

Ulrich Schnauss, a German electronic artist, filed suit against Guns N’ Roses, saying that its song “Riad N’ the Bedouins” includes unauthorized samples of his tracks “Wherever You Are” and “A Strangely Isolated Place.” But in a statement, the manager Irving Azoff said that the band “vigorously contests these claims.”

Guns N' Roses - "Riad N' the Bedouins" (1994-2008?)

    There are way too many similarities between the 2 songs and as much as I love GNR they can try and deny the originality of their music all they want but I don’t buy it. “Wherever You Are” – Ulrich Schauss’s song was a direct ripjob from whomever GNR directly or indirectly stole the riff from.

    Hope they have a $Million in the bank.
