According to Blabbermouth.net, British rock journalist Mick Wall, who just released his new biography of Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose, "W.A.R.: The Unauthorized Biography of William Axl Rose", was recently interviewed by "Elliot in the Morning". Download the chat as an MP3 audio file at this location. In a recent interview with Lafayette's daily newspaper Journal & Courier, Wall stated about the reclusive Guns N' Roses singer, "Axl turned 46 last Wednesday (February 6). The last time he released an album of original material he was 29. Now he is closer to 50. THE BEATLES' career started and was over in half that time." Published Feb. 7, "W.A.R." is available at Borders Books & Music and Barnes & Noble Booksellers. Wall said the book's release near Rose's birthday was a coincidence. Wall said Rose has "50 or 60 tracks recorded, enough for three or four CDs" and those leaked online or on bootlegs have been well-received from GNR fans. "Officially put it out all online," Wall suggested. "Here it is. Take it or leave it. Then just move on. Put them out. It's a sign of madness that it has taken this long. It was kind of cool crazy in 2002 when he started to tour again. Now it's uncool crazy. "The tracks I've heard, a lot of it is really good but the whole mystique is wearing away."

    Agree with him, but I can't see why he's writing ANOTHER book on Axl/GnR. Last time he did that he was to suck axl's dick in Get In The Ring. I think he wants another song dedicated to him really . . .

    Axl Rose can barely stand Axl Rose - do we really need a book to recount all the ridiculous publicity stunts he's pulled over the years? They already had a Behind The Music - move on.

    Axl may be a egomaniac, but you need that to be as good as he is. I'm fine with Democracy not coming out, but i REALLY REALLY wish he called this whole new lineup his solo career and not Guns

    The record companies are scared to release cd's right now, especially something huge like this. CD's are done for and they want to find the way to release it that will make them the most money. It is common knowledge that the record companies don't give a damn about the artist, let alone the fan.

    Why would Mick Wall work on Chinese Democracy?

    Hey, if it helps them push for a release date, I couldn't care less who works on it.
