    G'nR's "Chinese Democracy" Spring 2006....

    'Chinese Democracy' To Arrive This Spring
    Says Slash...
    by Daniel Melia on 1/9/2006


    It may not be the original band and it probably won’t be any good but according to former guitarist Slash Guns n’ Roses new album is coming out this spring.
    Although, it may be yet another false dawn for ‘Chinese Democracy’ which has been furiously speculated about over the past few years.
    Slash told a Philadelphia radio station: "It's coming out in March. I've been told a lot of things over the years, but it definitely sounds like it's coming out in March”.

    Re: G'nR's "Chinese Democracy" Spring 2006....

    I was a HUGE Gn'R fan. Saw them MANY times before Appetite came out. (I was friends with the brother of original drummer Steven Adler).


    Honestly, they WERE the next Led Zeppelin. A band that would go down in history. Appetite remains, to this day, one of the best rock albums EVER. If they just weren't so screwed up.

    I'm really not looking forward to this.

    Axl Rose Breaks His Silence

    Gn'R mastermind talks "Democracy" at L.A. party

    STEVE BALTIN Rolling Stone





    "People will hear music this year," says Axl Rose, puffing on a cigar in the early hours of Saturday morning at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. The notoriously reclusive rocker is of course referring to Guns n' Roses' decade-in-the-making Chinese Democracy, arguably the most anticipated album in rock & roll history. "It's a very complex record," says Rose, a surprise guest at Korn's tour announcement bash. (Others in the house: Jessica Alba, cast members of The OC, and members of Linkin Park, Good Charlotte and the Used.) "I'm trying to do something different. Some of the arrangements are kind of like Queen. Some people are going to say, 'It doesn't sound like Axl Rose, it doesn't sound like Guns n' Roses.'" He then smiles and adds, "But you'll like at least a few songs on there."
    Dressed in a Toronto Maple Leafs jersey, cross hanging around his neck, cornrows still intact and sporting a blonde goatee, Rose strolled into the party around 1 a.m., just as the DJ was coincidentally rocking some vintage Gn'R. Approached by a steady stream of women and hard-rock disciples -- including Puddle of Mudd's Wes Scantlin and Papa Roach's Dave Buckner -- Rose is cordial and chatty as he poses for photo after photo. He seems more like an average guy out for a night with friends than the most mythical rock star on the planet in 2006.
    And he maintains that that's exactly what he is. "The only time people ever write about me is when I go out to a strip club, because I don't chase the paparazzi down," he says. And, when he's out of the spotlight, Rose says you'll find him doing average-guy stuff: reading books and watching movies. His favorite book is Philip K. Dick's A Scanner Darkly. "I was a little scared when I saw they were making it into a movie starring Keanu [Reeves]," he says. "But I guess if he can handle The Matrix, he can do this."
    While Rose and his revolving cast of Gn'R bandmates have been working on Chinese Democracy, Papa Roach have achieved platinum status in their own right. But tonight, their drummer reverts to his teenage fan days, asking Rose for a picture and to guest on Papa Roach's next album. Rose strikes a pose and then graciously refers the fellow rocker to his management.
    After all, before he lends his talents to others' projects, Rose has one of his own to finish, and he says it's getting there. "We're working on thirty-two songs, and twenty-six are nearly done," he says. Of those, thirteen are slated for the final album. Among Rose's favorites are "Better," "There Was a Time" and "The Blues."
    As for a reunion with his former Gn'R mates, that seems unlikely. "I haven't spoken to Slash in ten years," Rose says. "I love the guy, I always wanted everyone to know how great he was, but.... I was just talking to Izzy the other day though."
    However, he hints that you could see the current incarnation of Gn'R back out on the road soon. "Every time there's a big festival announced, we get rumored to be on there," he says. "But we'll see what happens."
    One thing's for sure: Everyone will be watching.

    3 new Guns N' Roses tracks hit Net

    NEW YORK -- Guns N' Roses fans went into frenzied overdrive when three studio-quality tracks from the mythical "Chinese Democracy" album were leaked onto the Internet. The leaks came just weeks after frontman Axl Rose ended his hermit-like lifestyle by venturing out to a Korn tour launch party in Los Angeles and to trendy nightclubs for some post-birthday bashes (his 44th) in Manhattan. Asked at the Korn bash about "Chinese Democracy," which has been in the making for a decade, Rose told Rolling Stone.com that "people will hear music this year." (AP)

    Re: G'nR's "Chinese Democracy" Spring 2006....

    Man I hope it's true that it finally will be released. I loved G-N-R! Appetite is still one of my favorite cds and remains in my car at all times. I have seen them in concert like 25 or so times. I have been listening to them since the Live Like A Suicide album (it is still one of my prized tapes that I will never get rid of). I do hope the boys can put aside diffrences and come out sometime and do a tour ,hey I have hope after all if Pink Floyd could reunite after all thoughts years (even if it was just for the Live 8 Show in London, glad I was there for that). Even if it's not the original line up I'll give it a listen when it does finally come out.
