NewYorkMag.com is reporting that Guns n' Roses are being sued for allegedly using unauthorized samples from the songs "A Strangely Isolated Place" and "Wherever You Are" by German ambient musician Ulrich Schnauss. The track in question, "Riad n' the Bedouins" appeared on GnR's recent commercial flop "Chinese Democracy". I personally wouldn't believe that Axl Rose was hip enough to know who Ulrich Schnauss even was, but the article has samples of all three pieces of music and it's pretty much clear as day. Oops.
