Slash: Not Particularly Enthused For <em>Chinese Democracy</em>

Feb 12th, 2008 // 10 Comments

slash.jpgSo, Chinese Democracy is (still) rumored for the zillionth time to be “finished,” its release date held hostage on the board room table during the never-ending “contract negotiations” between Axl and label, and while there are undoubtedly a few crazies out there ticking off the remaining 45 Tuesdays in 2008 in hopes that one of them will be the day their unflagging amour is finally rewarded, Saul Hudson is not among them.

“I hear through the grapevine bits and pieces of what’s going on, and I’m interested to see what it sounds like because it will be such a huge statement,” he recently told an interviewer. “But I’m not holding my breath because I know Axl, and one of the problems with the band was sitting around (waiting for him)…It will come out when it’s ready to come out, but I don’t have the anticipation that everyone else has.” Slash, what if your unspoken support was secretly the only thing keeping Axl going during all those tweaked late nights tweaking snare hits? What if your ennui means we never hear it now? You’re so busted if this thing’s still in Axl’s bandana drawer come 01/05/09.

    I think you meant to type “Hudson,” not “Hudon”.

    i read that last bit as axl’s banana drawer, which makes a whole lot less sense but was fun to imagine for a second.

    Have you heard of Velvet Revolver?

    I just wish Simon would ask Robbie Carrico when Chinese Democracy’s coming out.

    @Murk: Ha! He really looks like he went straight from his boyband gig to getting “The Axl” from G’n'r’Us. Without losing his boyband voice, moves or hand gestures first. (Seriously, if he is this season’s “rocker”, I think I’ll have a seizure!)

    Actual Chinese democracy will beat Chinese Democracy to the market.

    Slash is still teh hot.

    The red carpet interview Guillermo (Jimmy Kimmel Live) did with him at the Grammy’s was pretty funny. He calls him “Splash” through the whole thing.
