From The Daily Mail:
Axl Rose is still mending things with former bandmates.
The Guns N’ Roses frontman has settled his lawsuit with former keyboardist Chris Pitman.
Pitman had sued the singer for an unpaid debt of $163k.
He claimed that Rose had written him a promissory note for $125,000 for services rendered in a year of work. Interest added on the extra $38k.
Rose, who was not flush with cash at the time, had promised to pay the money by a 2012 deadline, which came and went.
According to TMZ, the 54-year-old settled out of court for ‘much less’ than the six-figure sum, although exact terms were confidential.
Pitman was one of the longest serving members of Guns N’ Roses, joining the band in 1998.
