Finally, a release date for Guns N' Roses' 'Chinese Democracy'

According to an open letter from Axl Rose on Guns N’ Roses’ website, the long-gestating Chinese Democracy album finally has a release date (still tentative, Axl is careful to note), which is March 6, 2007. It’s a remarkable coincidence because that’s also the date when Jerry Lewis will finally release his long-shelved Holocaust comedy The Day the Clown Cried. Not to mention, it’s the day that they’ll finish building St. John’s Cathedral in New York City, after 115 years of construction. Plus, according to my neighborhood psychic, who’s been communicating with the spirit of Samuel Beckett, it’s the day that Godot will finally arrive.

    Funny, I also heard it was the day the cows will FINALLY decide to come home, the Earth will shift the axis, causing a parade of disastrous weather, “Glitter” will finally get its due as a DECENT film, Britney and Justin will announce their long awaited reunion, Paris will die…because Nicole will EAT her, gaining ten pounds, TomKat will announce their disunion (*le gasp!*), and Bea Arthur will finally out herself having been a man in drag all these years(*pffft* yeah, BIG surprise there).
    Boy, Robin Meade is going to have a BUSY morning at CNN. She better get pumpin.

    That’s also the day that season 2 of Firefly will air on Fox and that Arrested Development will come out with new episodes.
    Satan also better get ready, as March 6 may be a cold day in his neighborhood.

    Don’t forget that they have J.D. Sallinger’s sequel to “Catcher In the Rye,” which I’ve heard is titled “Catcher in the Rye 2: The Return of the Rye” slated for release that day as well.

    crap….so jerry lewis isn’t releasing it?! Why do you toy with me Gary?

    Okay, I’ll admit, you had me for a second there about The Day the Clown Cried.

    Having recently seen the “new” Guns in concert, I have to say–Axl still has it and they still put on the best rock show I have ever seen. I heard a few of the new songs at the show, and if they are any indication, this album is going to be incredible. Long-suffering Guns fans have been waiting for a decade for this album to surface, and it’s exciting to see a light at the end of the tunnel.

    Love the Godot reference.

    The day this album releases, Duke Nukem Forever – the quintessantly delayed videogame, which still hasn’t finished after about a decade – will actually have a prayer of being released as well.

    No offense to any G N R fans (my sisters would kill me & hang me by one of Axl’s old bandanas) but WHO THE HELL CARES?!? Rock albums don’t sell nearly as well as they did in the 80’s or even 90’s, I mean HELL 4 of the top 10 sellers of this year are Country cds, with the #1 selling cd being by Carrie Underwood!!
    I’m going out on a limb and saying this now. I feel bad for every record rep involved in promoting this project IF it ever does see the light of day on March 3rd, 2007. EVEN IF it successfully debuts nicely, no rock albums have held longevity on the charts except for Nickelback, and well, we’ve seen how everyone agrees to disagree on those damn Canadians! I think that the album is going to fail commercially, & I think everyone will finally give up hope that GNR can match the magic of the yesteryears. FYI wouldn’t it be like TOTALLY RAD IF THE NEW VELVET REVOLVER CD OUTSELLS “CHINESE DEMOCRACY”???

    As a 80’s child, I would love a G’N’R reunion, if it involved the REAL Guns ‘N’ Roses! I still like AXl, but this ain’t the real thing….

  • Phil

    FYI I notice I said March 3rd, and SORRY I do know its March 6th…I was just giving Axl 3 more days to get some much needed sales..hehe

  • paty

    Axl Rose is the best&his new album’ll be great, he doesn’t need neither Slash nor Duff.He knows what he’s doin’.
