Billboard.com reports: With a new management team in place, Guns N' Roses is "in negotiations" for the release of its decade-in-the-making album "Chinese Democracy," according to a post on the band's Web site.

The message did not elaborate on what the discussions concern, or offer an approximate release date for "Chinese Democracy," which was last on Interscope's release schedule in March 2007.

In other GNR news, guitarist Robin Finck has left the Axl Rose-led band to return to Nine Inch Nails, and will tour with the latter act this summer.

"Robin's plans caught everyone in Guns, as well as our fans, a bit off-guard," the band says. "Neither we nor management, etc., know any more in this regard and we prefer not to speculate or offer opinions at this time."

"When we begin to put tour plans together, we'll see where things are," the post continues. "Until then, Robin's touring with NIN and we're working with management on our game plans."

This band should just throw in the towel! Face it Axl! No one wants to play with you! This album must suck fat one if you have to "negotiate" its release!

even when this album comes out, we are going to want a spectacular release because it's been the longest wait ever. and i guarantee this won't be a spectacular release...if it ever does come out.

At least for Metallica, there's still a chance they can pull it all off and give us something worth the wait. But GnR... hmmmm, methinks... not so much.

the album has already been leaked on the internet. theres only 10 songs and most of them are boring power ballads, axl crying his head off. no real rock at all, pretty lame stuff. the only decent songs are the first 3 tracks with Buckethead on guitar. they've already started playing the single "better" on the radio in TX, only song worth a damn on the whole album, in my opinion.

If that's true then this proves that he has no real talent and he should have never chased away his former band mates because they were the real talent in the band.

Meanwhile, GNR lost a band member? I guess that'll put the release date back a few years.

It just goes to show you that carrot top is much more than just a comedian! The new braided hair-do really shows his urban ferocity!!! Does anyone know if Fred Durst will be appearing on this record?
