Axl Rose Quits Guns N Roses, Chinese Democracy Delayed Again

With Chinese Democracy supposedly completed, Axl Rose has decided to quit the band. Sources close to Rose say that the pressure had mounted to a boiling point and that he could not take it anymore. Fans no longer had faith in him and he could not stand hearing that his former bandmates had gotten him where he is. "His health had started to go downhill in the past few weeks just at the though of possible rejection of the album he has worked a decade on," told a source close to Axl who wished to remain anonymous. "He would not be able to perform in his current state anyway," she continued.

The current Guns N Roses band members have filed suit against Rose, both for control of the name of the band as well as the recording, which he stole before his big announcement.

Once again, fans are left wondering when or if “Chinese Democracy” will ever hit the stores. It’s not like they knew the answer in the first place though.

Sounds like an April Fools Joke but it is also very plausible. Axl is a nutjob, that's why this would be a perfect joke.

so the answer is . the album has taken so long to be released because people who leave negative comments about axl and the band. u stupid f***s should just shut up and let him do what he wants u sad f***s. if u dont like him and dont care, why leave a comment.i dont go to other band sites and tell them i hate them cause its not logicall. the truth is u obviously care enough about axl too f***ing go on sites and talk about him. ofcourse i love the original gnr too, but the way u ppl talk its like u dont give a sh** about gnr at all u just wanna say sh** about axl and some of you even say sh** about the original band.
either way gnr arent gonna be back together and u ppl cant make it happen. i wish i could but i accept that i cant and i will accept the new album aswell. gnr 2.0 are better than velvet revolver anyway.

do u c what i f***en mean. ur on a story about axl which is fake ,but anyway ur on a site criticzing axl and the album and it saying that axl smells like the sh** u did yesterday, it doesnt seem like u care about gnr at all. but ur so jealous of axl that u cant help but read these stories and saying sh** about him. if he f***en delays an album u shouldnt care cause u dont like him. doesnt that make more sense. if u said were a fan of the old band and were angry of what he did that would make more sense. but ur obviously a stupid peice of sh** that wastes ppls time.

F*** yeah. Just cause the old gn'r was better doesn't mean the new one will be sh**. I side with marco, F*** you, haters, you just waste time. If you don't care don't leave a comment, otherwise by replying to this you just prove what a sh** you are. If you love it then be happy, if not, then F*** off, this will not interest you, so have nothing to do with it.

You can download most of the songs off limewire or some other file sharing program anyway, i have, and they are awesome. not apetite for destruction awesome, but still masterpieces. velvet revolver suck, their singer is a pathetic replacement for axl, no matter how amazing slash, duff and matt are.

izzy stradlin's solo career also kicks a**

I just find it ridiculous how many hate wars the new Guns N' Roses start. Only online though. Is Axl Rose become reclusive joke in the music world? Yes. Has he been delaying his album for a while? Yes? Too long? Who knows. Brian Wilson took 38 years to release Smile. If you don't like Axl Rose and his new band then leave it be. Instead you stalk Guns N' Roses fansites/forums/news articles and fill it with pointless swearing and flame wars. Unless you have constructive criticism or information, I encourage you to please go touch yourself to Appetite for Destruction, because that man is still the same man now. If Axl had released two more albums of AoD type material we'd all be confusing him of milking his California sleaze metal til death. Reinvention is how music evolved.

This is an obvious LIE. Axl would never quit the band, and as if the rest of the band could ever sue him for rights to the name. Axl owns it. It's his, not theirs. Nobody should ever believe anything printed on this site. Complete bullsh**!

All i have to say is that I love the old gnr material, and while i may not have been old enough to attend one of their original concerts, i wish i could've. As previous bloggers have stated, if u dont like Axl, leave it alone, how did u find this site anyway? Did the site come up by accident when you were searching for hardcore porn or do u just look for sites to leave negative comments on all day!

GN'R, old or new! would be nothing without axl... there are solo performers out there who have the same band behind them every performance (bon jovi, avril lavigne and so on) and yet its the singer who gets the credit not the band,
The good thing about being a solo performer is that if you sack your lead guitar player no one gives a sh**.
Axl is the brain child behind GN'R old and new, insted of telling the old guys what to play, when to play, how fast and how long, hes telling the new guys. none of the old band members have had any real credits to there name since leaving gnr other than being the guys who used to be in GN'R, without Axl to lead them there nothing

We lost GN'R a lonnggg time ago. What I've heard off of Chinese Democracy doesn't even belong under the name GN'R. But, this right here confirms the end of GN'R, though Axl's a complete a$$hole you can't deny he's talented. And as far as I'm concerned there is no GN'R without Axl. And especially not without Slash.
