Chinese Democracy - Guns N Roses
On November 25 Chinese Democracy will finally be released, Axl Rose anounced. This is not the first time this has been said, so we'll just have to cross our fingers and don't promise anything until it's true or we'll be in trouble just like Dr Pepper's representatives. 7 months ago Dr Pepper's representatives announced that they would give a free soda to everyone in the United States if the record came out...and now, things have changed. Anyway, everybody is saying that "Chinese Democracy is the most anticipated album in rock n' roll history" as Steve Baltin wrote for the Rolling Stone on January 17/08, but besides the fact that the last recording with original tracks released by Guns N' Roses was in 1991 "Use your Illusion I&II" (Which I LOVE) what's the fuss all about?
First of all, there are only two original gunners left in the band; Dizzy Reed (Keyboards) and Axl because in the 90's they got in a legal fight and Axl Rose got to keep the name of the band, so after some months besides the name and the beginning of the so called Chinese Democracy which has been in the studio for over 14 years there was nothing left of Guns N' Roses.
Axl dared to say that this album is going to be big and different and he said: "some of the arrangements are kind of like Queen", so we'll have to wait...just a little longer...
The truth is that without Slash with his guitar signature and the energy of Matt Sorum who hits the drums with his fists it's going to be very tough to feel the original energy of Guns N' Roses.
