I don't buy it.


I bet we're going to get a press release from Dr P denying that they are involved in it.   Or at the very least, if we see Chi Dem we won't see free Dr P.

I don't believe that it's sourced from Dr P.

you cant be that stupid, I mean cmon, can you read

go to www.gunsnroses.com

or their gnr myspace

AXL CONFIRMS IT,

WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT A PRESS RELEASE FROM THE PRESIDENT?

You fucking dumbass. Smiley GNR and Dr P are not the same.

I haven't seen anything official from Dr P to confirm that they issued it, that was my point.  I'm not doubting Axl's comment.  I'm doubting that it's ACTUALLY from Dr P.  

And hey, I hope I'm wrong.  Time will tell.  So yes, a press release from Dr P or even the president of Dr P.

Perhaps this is a early April fools day gag.None the less I think this is a good idea for marketing that no one has ever thought about.

It's good to hear from Axl ! 

I would not at all be surprised if this was actually a planned promotion.  If the record company was concerned about making money in age of digital downloads and the state of the music industry... then sponsorship for the release would probably seem attractive. 

Also,perhaps Axl will release soon considering all the recent press about China's crack-down on Tibet.

So what do we make of this?  I called Schwepps today, like many others, and was told:

1)  The marketing program was leaked early;
2)  This was a joint promotion between Dr. Pepper brand and Guns N Roses
3)  Asked for information about where I heard of the promotion and asked for my zip code and phone number so they could contact me with more information

I find the whole thing really odd, but exciting.  The rep I spoke with at Schwepps was definitely trying to get marketing demographic information from me.  I used to do Market Research and Promotions work, but way before a lot of the web-based viral marketing out there today.  Is this simply a ploy by Dr. Pepper or a witty start of promotion for the album?  Weren't we told awhile ago that they were looking for innovative ways to promote the album???

It's either a kooky Dr. Pepper campaign that shows an appetite for GNR in pop culture still exists, or perhaps something larger presaging the release.  Either way, at least it's something!

Well, I don't think Jarmo would ever post this story in the HTGTH news section if it wasn't true. And that was class of Axl to not only respond, but to respond in such a positive way. I liked the Buckethead comment as well (him and Bumble are both great, admit it Wink). This is the most excited I've ever been about this album (actually getting released).

If this release had been posted on April 1st, it would have broken my heart..

Never a dull moment, even when things can get a little, uhhhhhh, dull.

But even if nothing materializes, this was good for a laugh.  No one tells a story like Axl!

(Seriously though, I'm so excited!  hihi)

This is so bizarre and "dangerous".  Ha!  Chinese Dr. Pepper begins now.  That should be the first single.  Cool response by Axl.  Hope it happens.

axl has a free ride of publicity now, that can be milked for all its worth

and I wouldnt be suprised if the stakes are raised and if some other corperate company/businessman etc
jumps on board to raise the stakes and throws money at axl to see if he bites

This is gonna turn into a fun waiting game
