GUNS N' ROSES will headline KROQ's Inland Invasion 2006 on September 23 at the Hyundai Pavillion at Glen Helen in Devore, California, the group's frontman Axl Rose told the Los Angeles radio station KROQ in an interview conducted this morning (May 19). During the chat, Axl also stated that he thought the surprise acoustic show GUNS N' ROSES played Thursday night (May 19) at The Plumm in New York City was "the smartest thing" he's done in ten years. He also mentioned how it was similar to when GN'R performed at the legendary NYC club CBGB in 1987.

According to Axl, he was attacked by fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger at The Plumm last night because he moved Tommy's girlfriend's drink — which Axl said was "the most surreal thing" that has happened in his life. Tommy was thrown out by security.

When asked if GUNS N' ROSES' long-awaited "Chinese Democracy" CD was coming out this year, Rose reportedly responded, "Yes, absolutely."

GUNS N' ROSES played the last of their four New York shows on Wednesday, May 17, before heading to Europe to headline major festivals as well as open for THE ROLLING STONES.

I wonder if they'll actually show up and play, or if Axl will pull the classic storm off stage like the huge douche he is move. I guess only time will tell.

If they do show up, I bet there is a good chance that Axl will be at least two hours late just like the old Gnr days. I wonder what the chances are of Axl's Chinese Democracy being better than Velvet Revolver's upcoming CD? I like Slash's guitar playing, but I was really disappointed when I heard Velvet Revolver's CD and Slash's Snake pit CD's. I think that Axl should tour with VR. It might be more entertaining to see Weiland Vs. Axl, than the music from both bands.
