Well it's been 15 years in the making and this past Sunday Axl and Bestbuy ? released the Chinese Democracy album to the General Public, of course over the years various incarnations of this project have crept out including back in 2007 for a very short time on commercial radio before being yanked from being released, although yours truly has been playing various tacks from this album from almost inception of Radio Clandestino hitting the airwaves. So the question is WHY NOW? is it YOU are getting hard up for money? and feel the time to cash in is NOW before the entire economy hits the shit fan? is this your attempt to "stimulate the economy" and bring hope to the millions upon millions of fans worldwide? is this due to the election of Barak Obama? (But for your info, if THIS WAS the case Axl you should have picked another sourse for a Sunday release, because as the record shows Bestbuy WAS one of the TOP fiancial supporters of the GOP convention this past summe, NOT a group or business one would associate with Democracy most would argue)or was it the fact that TOO many copies were being leaked to the masses and it was either release now while you still have some control? as for the "official release" I am very glad it was better late than never and now the millions of fans can personally posess and listen to what just a few of us had the sweet pleasures of enduring. As for real Chinese Democracy? well it looks the only way the Chinese Fans will get a taste is from the bootlegs on the streets(As if THEY wern't already out there) Well I guess I lost the bet, what would come first, release of this album, Serious Solutions to Global Warming or Real Chinese Democracy, Yeah once again Axl you come out on top.
