Guns 'N Roses frontman Axl Rose has formed a super group made up entirely of famous red-haired artists and intends to do a world tour before the end of this year.
The scary plastic-faced singer is well known for his ginger locks and pubes and it was this fact - and this fact alone - that encouraged him to create the band he calls 'Axls Ginger Bastards'.
"There is so much talent in me", said Axl today while pissing in a milk bottle, "but I can't play any instrument or do anything technical - such as plug in a toaster - that I needed some other folks to assist me in my new plan for world domination. Musically speaking".
And what a line-up he's put together!
Theres Mick Hucknall from Simply Red playing the bongos and whistling, Tori Amos on backing vocals and piano, the ginger guy from Queens of The Stone Age playing the hurdi-gurdy.
"I pay them not in money", said Axl, "but by allowing them to be in my amazing presence".
The World Tour is set to start in Toronto Canada but promotors are not holding their breaths.
"I don't expect Axl to actually turn up to any of the concerts", said promoter Larry Lambkin, "the others will be there. They're desperate. But Axl is a guaranteed no show. We expect a lot of rioting and destruction".
