What is a band without a front man? Sure the original band can not be beat but there are tons of people who can play the same riffs on a guitar, bang the drums to a planned out beat, and rock out on some keyboards. Without Axl, GnR wouldn't be the same. Look at the Contraband album that was put out. That is basically GnR with a new front man. Not nearly as good as classic GnR. In my opinion Axl is Guns n Roses!!

Axl Rose, the man, the myth, the legend. If he does things correctly could 2006 finally be his year?

It has been a while since we last heard from Mr. Axl Rose since buckethead left but there is still huge interest in what the red head is doing and his long awaited album. Nothing official has come from the Gn’r camp in ages and their official web page still looks the same as it did after the aborted tour in December of 2002. What we have gotten are rumors of Axl going “nuts”, Axl playing a few new songs at some club, 4 new songs being leaked on a radio show and now tour dates added for RIR and a few other shows, we are still waiting for release date which will be the light at the end of the tunnel. These rumors being good or bad does not really matter, it just adds to the legend of Axl Rose and keeps his name in the media to keep people interested, just when you don’t think you will hear anything about Axl some weird rumor always seems to pops up.

Like him or not, Axl Rose is one interesting person and most often he is misunderstood. Some people like to think of Axl as an A hole, but that is just because Axl likes to keep to himself and he likes his privacy. Axl does not crave attention or look to make headlines, he does that with out even trying and sometimes I think that embarrasses him. I know a lot of Gn’r fans get p***ed off at Axl because he has not been telling us his every move or what his plans are but I think that is a good thing. Axl seems to get himself in trouble every time he tells us about a possible tour, a possible release date or anything else for that matter. When Axl has told us about tentative tours or release dates and then those things fall through or dates pass by people bash him because they didn’t happen, that is why I think Axl doesn’t want to say anything until he is 100% positive it is going to happen. That is why I don’t think will hear from Axl until he knows the album is 100% done and the release date is set in stone. I don’t think Axl likes to disappoint his fans and this is his best way of getting our hopes up for the release of this album. Another thing fans need to keep in mind is that Axl wants to make the best possible he can, and he does not care how long it takes, this album will be his legacy. This album will make or break his career since it is his first album with out the old band.

A lot of old Gn’r fans like to think the new songs we have heard so far are not as good as the old bands songs, but that is not the important question. The important question is, are the new songs as good or better than the current mainstream songs on the radio today? And IMO the answer to that is YES. I think Madagascar, IRS, the Blues and Chinese Democracy, TWAT and Better are just as good if not better than a lot of the music on the radio right now, and those songs are not even the “big guns” that Axl has in store for us. Better is something we have never heard before in music and could be a huge hit once we get the studio version. Citr and Better are the best of the bunch and are two amazing songs. Also anyone who says Axl cannot sing anymore just needs to listen to these demos, he has never sounded better.

He has a set of amazing and underrated players backing him up and they have all worked very hard on this album. The few people that have heard the album have all said how great or amazing the songs are, so I think if CD is promoted the way it should be it could be the best album of 2006.. Axl and his new Gn’r could also be on top of the music world again. Just look at a few years ago the mtv mva’s. They got a huge pop and people were going ape sh!t. The U.S. tour was not as bad as some naysayers would have you believe. The U.S. tour did pretty well considering there was almost no promotion for it and no new album in sight. Just think of how the tour would do with the band having a hit single on the radio, the album being released, a possible video on mtv and proper promotion for the tour. I think it could be huge. All Axl has to do is release the album and let it speak for itself. Axl has to understand he can’t please everyone. Yes Axl will lose some of the old fans with the new band and new sound, but he will also pick up many more fans along the way. As bad as Axl sounded back then he sounded better than the crappy live bands on the VMAs.

Chinese Democracy is going to be like nothing we have heard before from Guns n’ Roses. Tommy calls the new songs “earth shattering” and Dizzy has said the songs will exceed our expectations. Those statements make me wonder how amazing this album could very well be. Brian May and Tommy have both talked about how outrageous/amazing Axl's voice is on the album. Tommy also alluded that the rockers on CD will be like old gnr, while Zakk Wylde said the songs he heard from CD sounded like AFD on steroids.

Axl’s lyrics are said to have deeper meaning than on past albums, and we know there is a song about John Lennon, I am sure ones about the old band and the break up with Steph Seymour. This album will also have some political flavor with Chinese Democracy and Oklahoma (if that song makes the album). The new songs just prove that even more.

I believe Chinese Democracy is going to showcase the new bands diversity and could still be talked about years from now much like AFD is still proclaimed as being just as fresh today as it was 15 years ago. CD is said to be a melting pot album by Axl and I think you will be able to tell what each members input was to each song. I think each song will have each member’s trademark, something they can all be proud of.
I am not saying this album will be the best album ever, but I believe it’s going to something that will inspire discussion for years to come. and not only will it serve to cement Axl's legendary status as the ultimate rock star, it will preserve the dignity of the guns n roses name in the annals of rock history

We have heard three demos all which are very different and very good. Better mixes pop with metal, while IRS is a mix of old gnr and nin style of music while TWAT which is very November Rainish. IRS actually charted for radio spins, which is a first for a leaked demo. It also got the most votes for one stations cage match in the history of that station.
CITR is very beatles like where as Better starts off like a pop song then turns into a metal song.

It is now time for Axl to take his throne back as the best front man in rock, others have tried but none have even come close to having Axl presence or aura. Axl holds his own destiny and legacy in his own hands. He can either be the huge star he used to be or he can just disappear again. Either way Axl Rose will always be one of music great mysteries. He had it all in the 90s and he can have it all again if he wants to, he just has to release the album and everything will fall into place.

I've read the review's & I really wan't to hear it.But I'm not holding my breath is all I'm saying.The song's just might be incredible but how much of this did he do on his own.My problem with Axl is this.HE THOUGHT EVERYTHING IN THAT BAND WAS DUE TO HIM EXCLUSIVELY.There are dozen's of eyewitness account's on record of this.From band mates to road managers to roadies.Riot's have started due to his arrogance.If I paide $50.00 for a floor seat at a GNR show and Axl in his infinite wisdom decided to stop a show just because a fan was takeing his picture.I'd be p***ed off too.If the record is good(& it outa be it took forever)then fine.Axl will have solidified a rep as an EVIL GENIOUS & ROCK GOD ! However this will not change the fact that he ruined what was an incredible band on the alter of his ego.

Also another thing that disturb's me.He had so much time to make this record and has gone threw dozen's of song righters & producers.This is what caused me to grow out of certain specific artist's in the 1st place.It's like Prince & Michael Jackson.Mike has dozens of people working on any one of his record's so of course it's a hit.But is it a hit because of his talent or the fact that some of the best producer's possible had something to do with it.On the other hand Prince does it all himself.Play's all the instrument's wright's all the song's does all the production wright down to the cover art & it's a hit.Hopefully you see my point.I'm looking forward to this album but I aint holding my breath over it.
