GN'R: 'Chinese Democracy' To Be Bluegrass?
0
A source close to the band Guns N' Roses have told the TheSpoof.com that the new Guns N' Roses album "Chinese Democracy" will be in fact a bluegrass album. "This is shocking," says fan Billy Walters. "I can't believe GN'R would do that kind of album, it will be a real disappointment to a lot of long time fans." While calls to Guns N' Roses management have not been returned,and the bands label has only said "No comment." It has been rumored that Guns N' Roses only remaining original member vocalist W. Axl Rose has gone crazy, at least that is what one fan thinks. "I don't know what is wrong with Axl these days," says Lisa Thornsbear, "but releasing a bluegrass album is just crazy."

    I love that the name of the site is thespoof. Probably meaning that it's just a story to get more attention to it. And The 6 songs I've heard deffinetely aren't bluegrass

    Ive heard all the leaks there are..I can safly say..this is just a rumor..Look up on youtube-"Better" "Chinease Democracy" and "Madagascar"..Those are the best that have been leaked and there are clearly not bluegrass

    Someone shoot this poor soul so he doesn't have to keep living. Personally, Chinese Democracy doesn't matter to me.Without SLash snd the gang, there is no Guns.THis is just "Roses"

    The album does exist....and it is all rock. They played in KROCK 106.1, in LA, about 4 or 5 months ago....3 or 4 songs. Sounded like good old, standard GnR. Also, I cannot beelive how many people dont know that Bluegrass is a genre of music. Isnt this a guitar forum? For the people who dont know, you are ignorant, and why ask the question of "What is Bluegrass?", when google.com is a click away? I hope none of you young morons every apply for a job.

    This is the worse news yet! Chinese Democracy sounding like bluegrass? That doesn't sound like Guns N' Roses to me.

    NO. NO. NO. GNR was, at one point, a fairly good band. Velvet Revolver have never been that, nor will they ever be. Anyhow, what's wrong with bluegrass?
    shut_up_n00b
    This is plain stupid. I have heard the majority of the songs leaked, and they are in no way bluegrass. Also, no one cares if a fan said that Axl has gone crazy. They don't even mention who is "close" to Guns.

    LOLOLOL 1. It's not a bluegrass album, jeezey pete some people are so stupid. 2. GNR are not metal.

    Bullshit. That is all to be said. Axl isn't that idiot. He knows nobody will buy a GNR bluegrass album.

    Just when you think the majority of the UG community couldn't possibly be any dumber, you come on here and see people still commenting thinking this is real. Seriously, READ THE FUCKING ARTICLE BEFORE YOU POST! Maybe then, you'd have realized the "story" came from a fake/satire news site.
    dfresh91
    Blue Grass first of all is just a type of music, who cares what type of music axl wants to put up. GnR is great, but VR is starting to look pretty sweet, if u havent listened to them, listen to their stuff before commenting about it

    "The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious." Thats what it says at 'TheSpoof.Com' how could you take a website with that name seriously in the first place...

    j/w but has anyone here ever actually listened to or seen a bluegrass band? i saw ricky skaggs (a well-known (in the bluegrass world) player) and it blew me away. the vocals sometimes can get annoying, but when one actually looks at the talent that each one of the musicians in the band has, one will be very impressed. i was suprised to see no drummer on stage when i thought i could clearly hear it. but yeah, if you get the chance to, go see a bluegrass band. dont judge before then.

The blame has been placed upon actress, commentary, and political activist, Rosie O'Donnell, who in a fit of unsuppressed hunger devoured most of the city in a 4 hour eating binge. Police have reviewed security camera footage that clearly shows Ms. O'Donnell naked and shoving the city into her mouth piece by piece.
    lol. comon team it isn't april 1st yet!

    'Guns N Roses' haven't told anyone anything for years becuase they broke up years ago. What you see now is a joke, and China probably will be democratic before this album actually sees the clear blue sky... And who cares anymore? Besides - he told it to "thespoof.com" Don't be that big of a sucker.. Please.

    Am i the only one who has ever heard Dueling Banjos? "What is bluegrass"...honestly.
    Phoenix_24Leas
    yeah seriously, I don't know why they won't release it now seeing as how more than half the album has leaked. Kinda ridiculous, you wait 10 years for a couple of fairly decent songs.
