Axl: more online ramblings; Chinese Democracy looks set to tumble out of US Top 30
When asked why Chinese Democracy is a GN’R album and not an Axl solo project, Rose wrote: “A solo record would be completely different than this and probably much more instrumental.
“I made a Guns record with the right people who were the only people who really wanted to help me try, were qualified and capable while enduring the public abuse for years.”
He continued: “As far as a new name… this is who I am, not whatever else someone else thinks of. I don’t see myself as solely Guns but I do see myself as the only one from the past making the effort to take it forward.”
