    Guns N' Roses Intact, Putting Finishing Touches On 'Chinese Democracy'

    Fri Dec 20,11:07 AM ET

    (12/19/02, 6 p.m. ET) - "Guns N' Roses ended its tour because of the departure of guitarist Robin Finck (news) and bassist Tommy Stinson are false, according to a spokesperson for the band. The spokesperson wouldn't give any details surrounding the reasons that Clear Channel and Guns N' Roses ended their tour affiliation, but did say GN'R is very much intact.

    The band and its members, vocalist Axl Rose (news), guitarist Buckethead, drummer Brain, bassist Tommy Stinson, guitarist Robin Finck, et al, are currently on vacation. They will return to the studio in January to put the finishing touches on Chinese Democracy, which the band is releasing in the spring. If it is released next year, it will be the first full album of new original music from Guns N' Roses in 12 years."

    "Vacation"?!?!?!? Vacation from what?!?!? [img]graemlins/wtf.gif[/img] I guess it's hard work not showing up for gigs and fucking people out of performances. Axl is a pathetic fucking joke.
    "Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that."

    "This is a lttle prayer dedicated to the separation of church and state. I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    "I think it's the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately."

    Yeah, not to sound cynical, but why should we be surprised if there are "internal tensions" in the band? If this were Guns N Roses we were talking about (and not the cover band with Axl on vocals) I'd be a little bummed out. But I think that the wave of attention that the new incarnation of GnR had going there for a while has about run out.

    No. They said in "the spring", not "this spring".

    Sprng of what year is anyone's guess.

    My inside source says that the new album which is almost done, is going to be re-recorded, Axl is dumping everyone, grabbing the Nelson Twins (gunner and what's his face) to play lead and rythem guitar, on bass will be mikey sice we know the messiah will come before VH tours again, and for drum they are digging up Bonzo...

    The new album will be released in the spring... Spring of 2010... That is the inside word.

    I'll believe it when the album is sitting in the rack at the local 'Media Play' store.

    The wait is on, it's a neck and neck race between VH and GNR to see who can possibly be the slowest to release any new music. [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img]
    Axl's had Chineese Democracy in the can for how long now? 2 years or so? Seems like every year he's gotta re-record the thing with whatever his new incarnation of GNR is...Just release the damn thing already!
    I guess the good thing is that you do know that GNR do have something new coming, as opposed to VH's "who know's what the f@#k we're doing, and when or if we're doing it!" message to the fans.
    Sorry, had to vent a bit...I feel better now! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Look who is slated as guitarists

    Guns N' Roses' long-threatened comeback album and tour moved a step closer to reality with the announcement of tour dates in March and April.

    Lead singer Axl Rose and keyboardist Dizzy Reed are the only members from the band's late '80s peak who remain in the current lineup. The new group consists of Rose, Reed, Brain (drums), John Sykes (guitar), Tommy Stinson (bass), Chris Pitman (keyboards) and Richard Fortus (guitar).

    The band staged a high-profile coming-out with a surprise medley performance on MTV's Video Music Awards in August. They have also appeared live on recent festival bills in Europe and Asia.

    The band has been in the process of recording the forthcoming album "Chinese Democracy" for several years, but no release date has yet been set. Tickets for the U.S. dates are scheduled to go on sale beginning Jan. 27, according to Ticketmaster.
    I can't believe that's supposed to be true. Sykes is dumb as hell if he takes such a gig! [img]graemlins/wtf.gif[/img]

    Wasn't the Sykes rumour already confirmed to be false? [img]graemlins/wtf.gif[/img] Without Buckethead in the lineup, there isn't really much point in seeing this cover band, IMO.
