GNR Drummer Discusses Chinese Democracy Delays

(Music Radar) One musician who played a large role in the recording of Chinese Democracy is speaking out: drummer Bryan "Brain" Mantia, who joined Guns N' Roses in 2000 and may or may not still be a member of the touring group (drummer Frank Ferrer signed on as a replacement drummer when Brain's wife gave birth to a baby girl in 2006; management says both drummers are currently part of the outfit).

In an interview with EQTV, Brain revealed how more than $300,000 was spent over a seven-month period on redoing drum bits note for note after Josh Freese left the band. Brain claims that he now holds the record for the duration that a single drum kit had been set up in any one recording studio.

"I think it was five years that my drums were set up at the Village Recorders in Los Angeles," Brain said. "It was five years and it went through three different producers. It went through Sean Beaven, Roy Thomas Baker and then I guess Axl is the producer now. Five years my drums were set up." - more on this story
