Guns N Roses Completed New Album?

Band Photo: Guns N Roses (?)

Classic Rock Magazine has issued the following report.

"It's a fact!

Classic Rock recently tracked down Beta Lebeis, personal manager of Axl Rose, who confirmed to us that Guns N' Roses' Chinese Democracy album 'was finished before Christmas.'

She added: 'Everybody knows that.'

Lebeis said Axl is currently 'in negotiations' with unspecified parties to arrange to album's on-sale date.

However, Classic Rock believes that Chinese Democracy may not be 'released' in the traditional sense - at least not initially.

We suspect that GN'R may follow the RADIOHEAD route of pay-as-you-like downloads. But we stress this has not been confirmed.

Another source close to the GN'R camp also suggested that Chinese Democracy may gain a conventional release in late summer, with a view to it becoming 'a big Christmas album.'

Stay tuned for the full, unexpurgated story behind Chinese Democracy in the next issue of Classic Rock, on sale on February 6th!"

GnR had one great album and then after that everything went to hell. However it has been amusing for the past 8 years or so to hear all the rumors, setbacks, and delays, I will be curious to hear the new material and see how the old GnR fans receive it.

But Im not expecting anything like Appetite which is really the only GnR album I liked really.

All I see is sh*** about AXL...
are there any true GNR fans here?
as for Velvet revolver.. they will never be like Guns N roses!
Scott Weiland is a fag.. he'll never be as Good as AXL!!!!
the new lineup is not that bad, however not the same as the old GNR! Guns N Roses 4 ever!!!!

Axl who?? Oh yeah, he's still around. If this CD is ever released, I wonder how many shows Axl will walk out on when they tour for it. Or how many more band members he'll go through. Axl might as well be a solo artist. His ego is so big no one else can fit on stage with him.

For the record I still believe this album is a myth. It will never be released--ever. And I've never been a fan, and I'm certain this album won't change that.

So lets say hypothetically that the album -is- finished. The Radiohead thing might not be such a bad idea. Assuming that he was able to record two full disks of (what fans would percieve as) solid material. He can release one disk free or pay as you like and then for xmas release a full double album. It could work well for Axl if he plays his cards right.

The Radiohead idea will only work 1) if there really is an album 2) if its worth listening to. I kinda have my doubts about both things but I know that pissing fans off by making them wait is losing money. Just release the damn disc already. I want to see just how bad this album that has taken so long really is.

Man, for a bunch of dudes that don't like GNR, Axl, VR...sure have a lot of opinions. What kills me is that for all the 'who cares?' comments, these meatheads don't seem to realize that nobody cares what THEY or I think either. The difference is that most of you haven't accomplished sh** in your lives. Axl, as rich as he is, having achieved the pinnacle in his profession, will or will not release the album when HE wants to. Read slashes book...Axl never gave a damn if anyone came to the show or bought the albums...he is an artist; and are any of the really famous artists sane? meh.

when -- and this is completely hypothetical -- the new album(s) are released, sure they'll sell 4 million copies...but musically they will be a disappointment. there is no possible way that it can live up to the hype axl and co. have created. the cieling is too high and when it collapses, axl will cry like a baby, fire everyone twice, pretend to ressurect another version of gnr, promise another breakthrough album, never release it and then die from a cocaine overdose. the end.

Fastway....well it seems that old Fast Eddie Clarke has been doing shows with that band name off and on over the years but without the original singer...the original singer...David King, is with another band..and has said that he would rather not perform in a Fastway reunion and play that type of music anymore...and you ask what band is he singing for now...?... Flogging Molly..yeah check em out....what a damn disgrace for Fastway fans..!!! I have nothing against the Irish or Irish folk music but its just not right... a guy with a voice like that, would rather not use it..??
anyway...thats what I learned when doing some research awhile back....kinda depressing if you want my opinion...!!

oh yeah..a new GnR release..hahahahahahaha OK...its not funny anymore...its pathetic

yeah... theres alot of Fastway footage on the net an few vids on Youtube even.....
It seems there are quite a few people that dont realize that its the same Dave King...he has his hair cut short and wears glasses sometimes....Ive watched a few Flogging Molly vids...I guess its a cross between Irish folk and punk.... all I know is... its not for me... I'll hang onto my collection of 4 Fastway Cds with him singing and the 1 release by Katmandu... ( that has David King singing-- early 90s blues/metal similar to Fastway )
I seem to remember reading about Fast Eddie putting a Fastway together for some festivals last year across the pond.....

Unprofessionalism isn't even a word! You speak of Axl's lack of "intellegence"? Ha. Something you clearly lack. This chain is about Guns N Roses ~ and people chat about their personal lives as if there isn't AOL Instant Messenger, Myspace, e-mail or telephones?! There are bands influenced by G-N-R namely Avenged Sevenfold and Trivium. If you sincerely need more examples I'm sure you can google it. G-O-O-G-L-E just in case you don't know how to spell that. By the way guys who refer to other guys they don't know as gay, based on music taste, are juvenile and in the closet themselves. Slurping straws out of butt holes?? You're so vile. If you don't know what that means go use an online dictionary. You bash because you're insecure, but you secretly know that.

Here is a little something that I pulled off of Webster's dictionary for you:
un·pro·fes·sion·al (ŭn'prə-fěsh'ə-nəl) Pronunciation Key
adj.
Not in a profession.
Not a qualified member of a professional group.
Not conforming to the standards of a profession: unprofessional behavior.
Characteristic of an amateur; inexpert.
un'pro·fes'sion·al·ism n., un'pro·fes'sion·al·ly adv.

It is a word dipsh**! As far as being insecure I am a very secure female thank you very much! Music is art and what is art? Well here is another dictionary definition for you:
art1 /ɑrt/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[ahrt] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation
–noun 1. the quality, production, expression, or realm, according to aesthetic principles, of what is beautiful, appealing, or of more than ordinary significance.
Art is subjective and opinion's are like a$$holes... everyone has one and they all stink including your own!

As far as being vile don't care if you don't like it and sorry your weak little tummy can't stand it!

I also said name me a DECENT band that has been influenced by GNR. Not the current pop bands that Roadrunner is fixated on.

Glad to disgust you! If you can't take it then that must mean you are weak.. I would much rather be strong and "disgusting" then weak. That is a big part of the metal world... it's not for the weak of heart or stomach.

^We get alot of those morons who call you a fag or emo if you dont like their favorite band. I and a few of the other members with brains tear them down to the core until they either shut up or come up with a semi decent argument. Usually they end up shuting up because they are too stupid to come up with a decent argument. Its actually kind of fun really.

You didn't type unprofessional, you typed UNPROFESSIONALISM which is NOT a word. Go to Merriam - Webster and enter the word you actually used. Airhead.
Did I ask you what art meant? Wait I don't care what your response is, and no I didn't. That says alot about your character to take pride in being vile. Quit trying to impress the guys on here. You're pathetic.

You're perceptive Godlike ~ I'm a girl. Wait you're trying to be funny! Regardless I thought I was talking to a guy at first in regards to Kalis_wrath. Otherwise I would have been more apprehensive to say anything and then I just kept going. I respect girls who listen to metal not very many of us do. I was just being b****y like everyone else on here. I didn't realize all would get their panties in a twist. I don't stick things where they don't belong (i.e. my head) so let's call it even. I'm a b**** who's sacking it up to say sorry. :-\

I do hope that you guy's know that I do appreciate your help and know that I love ya big lugs! It takes a tough woman to handle theses guy's. It's funny though that not alot of people get the underlaying hint in my screen name that I am a woman. Kali then again is not a very well known goddess so that is understandable... So chicka, who are your female influances in the great grand wonderful world o metal? I am a Jo Bench, Otep, Christina Scabbia, Angela Gossow and Tarjia influanced woman.

I still feel like a Jezabel about the whole petty argument. On a better note I'm an Angela Gossow chick. She's amazing. To be perfectly frank I'm influenced by male metal. Although I do love Maria Brink. By the way I admired your honesty about not being a "s l u t" on Myspace. Most girls are w h o r e s. To me that's strength. What mythology does your s.n. originate?

Haha BlackDog, you mean Drain STH? ;) They are o.k. Not the greatest though. Dunno why they just never became great in my book.

Fallen, really it's o.k. We fight like sibbling's in here, but when someone say's they are sorry for something like you have we are cool with them. I understand male metal in alot of ways is better than female metal. I was just getting an idea of what kid of metal chick you are. Glad you did not say Evanessance! God damn that woman rubs me wrong!!! Kali is a Hindu goddess. She is pretty powerful and very much the epitimy of what a woman should be. Referance.com will have her info for you if you get the time and want to learn something new. I do have one pic on my myspace that is kinda on the riskay side, but not uber slutty. It was taken like four years ago. As a general whole I don't dress skanky, but every now and again I like to dress up and I do it for me, myslef and I.
