Some you know, some may be a history lesson. More »
There’s been so much non-news news about the status of Chinese Democracy’s release that we’re back to thinking Mr. N’ Roses will never deem it done.

Earlier this week, Page Six ran a story about Axl Rose bartering entrance to the Stereo nightclub after closing (at 5:30 AM) so he could continue his 44th birthday bash. His offer? A listening party for the COMPLETED Chinese Democracy which he’d been working on for the last nine years.
