(Classic Rock) John Kalodner says that Guns N' Roses wouldn't go platinum if they released a new studio album because people in the music business are too "pussified" to give their honest opinion to big-time acts.

The retired American Artists and Reportoire (A&R) executive, who worked with bands including AC/DC, Whitesnake and Aerosmith in his 30-plus year career, claims that the industry is filled with yes-men who want to protect their jobs.

When asked if GNR could make another hit record, he tells LA Weekly: "No. It's very hard to tell superstars that their songs aren't good enough, which is the main problem with most of these records, and there are only pussified people in the music business who will not tell.

"Either they're afraid for their salaries, their reputations, being disliked by the artists, there are many reasons why they won't tell the artist the truth. It's a very hard thing to do. And I would never win any popular artists from all the artists that I made famous, believe me." Read more here.
