Bob Guccione Jr was the owner of music mag Spin when it mischievously printed the Guns N' Roses interview contract, which apparently included the provision of brown M&Ms. Axl responded by ranting about Guccione Jr in the song Get in the Ring from the band’s Use Your Illusions II album.

But Guccione’s ego was as big as Axl’s, and he wasn’t about to let it go. He wrote a letter stating that, if Axl really wanted to ‘Get in the Ring’, he only had to set it up. Oh, and that he was very good at karate. Axl didn't reply, but did carry on ranting about Spin magazine.

So there you have it. The rivalry of Ronaldo and Bale has got off to a good start, but they’ve got a way to go to match this mob. Still, should Bale brush a toe against a Ronaldo shot that was going in anyway, expect all hell to break loose.
