How much idle conjecture has there been over Chinese Democracy? Axl Rose has had 17 years to turn this vanity project into absolute gold. It has to be a masterpiece. It has to be the best album of the 21st century.

I say “vanity project” because Rose is the only founding member remaining in Guns N’ Roses. I say “vanity project” because he has taken 17 bloody years to write one album!

Following Mötley Crüe’s lead, Guns N’ Roses are to release a song through a computer.

The sequel to the hugely popular Rock Band game will include ‘Shackler’s Revenge’, a track from Chinese Democracy – probably the most anticipated album of recent rock memory.

This news is likely to be confirmed today (July 14) but broke it earlier quoting anonymous individuals close to the deal as sources.

The song’s inclusion in Rock Band 2 is a hint that the new album will be out this autumn, finally putting an end to years of delays, although a confirmed release date is yet to be announced.
