GUNS N' ROSES' GREATEST DUE IN MARCH, BUT AXL MAY INTERVENE

MERCURIAL FRONTMAN CONSIDERING LEGAL ACTION TO PREVENT RELEASE.

Despite gripes from frontman Axl Rose, Geffen Records plans to release Guns N' Roses' Greatest Hits on March 23.

The compilation will feature 14 songs, including all eight of Guns N' Roses' hit singles: "Welcome to the Jungle," "Paradise City" and "Sweet Child O' Mine" from 1987's Appetite for Destruction; "Patience" from GN'R Lies; "November Rain," "Don't Cry (Original)" and "Live and Let Die" from 1991's Use Your Illusion I; and "You Could Be Mine" from 1991's Use Your Illusion II. The latter album's "Civil War" and "Yesterdays" will be included as well.

Greatest Hits will also contain four covers: Bob Dylan's "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" from Use Your Illusion II; the Rolling Stones' "Sympathy for the Devil" from 1994's "Interview With the Vampire" soundtrack; and the Dead Boys' "Ain't It Fun?" and the Skyliners' "Since I Don't Have You" from 1993's "The Spaghetti Incident?"

A source close to Guns N' Roses confirmed that Axl Rose is unhappy about the impending compilation and that he is considering taking legal action to prevent its release. The band's manager did not return calls.

Greatest Hits
will feature no new material. The last original Guns N' Roses tune to be released was the turbulent "Oh My God" from the 1999 soundtrack to "End of Days." That year, the band's label also released the double live GN'R CD Live Era: '87-'93. Both were meant to whet fans' appetites for the band's next studio album, Chinese Democracy, which, needless to say, still hasn't arrived.

In 2002, Guns N' Roses previewed new material on the MTV Video Music Awards and on a chaos-laden North American tour with CKY and Mixmaster Mike, which was cut short with 13 dates to go.

GN'R are scheduled to perform May 30 at the Rock in Rio: Lisbon festival in Lisbon, Portugal.
