GUNS N’ ROSES drew criticism earlier in the month from Clark County commissioners after they were told about an ad for the group’s Vegas concerts which depicts what appears to be a sexually assaulted woman beneath the “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign.

The image, which is said to be a watered-down version of the banned cover for the band’s classic 1987 debut, “Appetite For Destruction”, was being used in mainstream advertising, including newspaper promotions and taxicab placards.
