GNR CD Really Done
We reported on the rumors that the album was done a couple weeks back but we never heard back from Geffen or the GNR camp with a confirmation or denial. The rumor is that the marking is holding up the release. In our attempts to follow up the story a new level of confusion was added as a rep we spoke with at Universal wasn't even sure if the band was still with Geffen as he believed that they were part of Universal's catelog label now.
UK magazine Classic Rock had better luck getting official word. They spoke with Axl's personal manager, Beta Lebeis, who said that the album "was finished before Christmas." Adding that "Everybody knows that." She also said that Axl is currently "in negotiations" to set the release. So it looks like we may just see "Chinese Democracy" this year.
