|U.P.O. guitarist Chris Weber, a former bandmate of GUNS N' ROSES singer Axl Rose from from his pre-GN'R group, HOLLYWOOD ROSE, underwent brain surgery to remove a brain tumor on Wednesday, November 17. The surgery "went well and the tumor they removed looked like a little mini Axl Rose," according to an update sent out on Weber's behalf. "He looks forward to a speedy recovery and hopes to be back touring with U.P.O. by early next year (this time with a shaved head)."
Last Friday (19th) one of the contestants on the Swedish version of the Pop Idol tv-show sang "Paradise City".
