Axl Rose Guns N' Roses frontman who I've been hunting down, is harder to find than Osama Bin Laden. Been under a rock? Then, and only then, have you NOT heard of "Chinese Democracy."The question on everyone's mind is when is "Chinese Democracy" going to be released? The talk on the street is that he has been working hard on the most promised album in the history of rock which we are hoping will be released by the end of 2003. According to one of my sources Axl is very down to earth and very friendly contrary to popular opinion and press reports. A lot of people commented on how good he looked as well and in person Axl did appear fit and youthful. He seems hopeful that patient fans would finally have the album by the end of the year. One thing that may bear in the equation is the recent changes with Geffen Records. It seems that MCA Records was effectively folded and most of the roster was moved over to Geffen. Word on the street is Geffen will be reorganized and in effect become once again a full self-standing record company (over the past few years Geffen was ran as part of Geffen / Interscope / A&M). What that means is there will be more muscle behind a new GNR release when the time comes. According to the source Axl didn' touch the subject, it may be a favorable factor in the release of the album. Or it could mean that Axl, like many musicians, is simply a perfectionist and couldn't sit with the idea of releasing music he felt wasn't perfect. The last tour of Guns and Roses, was promoted by Clear Channel Communications. More than 5.7 million Guns and Roses fans can't be wrong. I'm a die-hard fan of Axl Rose, and all I'm going to say is remember "November Rain", I'm on your side. What do I have to do get a tattoo of Guns and Roses?
