Guns N' Roses to Go Independent for 'Chinese Democracy'?
Guns N' Roses' 'Chinese Democracy' was doubted to even see the light but when Axl Rose's personal manager Beta Lebeis confirmed that "everybody knows" that the album is completed, words quickly spread on the questions "when" and "how". The latest rumor suggested that Rose opts to go independent.
Rose allegedly is inspired by Radiohead's unconventional way of releasing their latest album, 'In Rainbows'. When the Thom Yorke-fronted band ended the contract with EMI, the album was released digitally based on pay-whatever-amount-you-want. Apparently the idea also struck Rose's head, reportedly because their contract with Universal had also wound down.
Reports said that Rose was given freedom to release the album in whichever way he desires. However, it is unlikely to happen because Universal had been funding the production of this album since its first kick 15 years ago and the cost itself has been deemed as the most expensive ever for an album.
'Chinese Democracy' release date is still marked TBA although there are predictions that it will come mid year.
