“Chinese Democracy” Whispers Finally Get Some New Storylines

Maura / July 17, 2008

AP06063002126.jpgLast night I got a tip about a video purporting to be footage of someone who works for Rock Band maker Harmonix talking about Chinese Democracy “off the record” at the E3 conference; during the chat, he made outsized claims like a) the album is not only coming out this year, it’s going to be made up of not one, but four (?!) CDs; and b) September’s Video Music Awards are going to go the big Axl appearance route again, what with MTV being part of the braintrust behind the game. Whether this is at all true, or merely a disinformation campaign that doubles as a shrewd way for the Harmonix employee to punk the “innocent” interviewer who was clearly not turning off his camera during the Axl-sensitive portion of the interview, is for you to figure out, although I think it’s somewhat sweet that YouTube’s commenting hordes are calling for the clip to be taken down so the dude can keep his job. Video after the jump.

What more is there to say, except “here’s hoping Sebastian Bach weighs in on all these rumors soon.” Sigh.
