Seventeen years in the making, there’s no way that Guns n’ Roses’ perpetually forthcoming album Chinese Democracy will live up to the hype. Frustrated by the wait, blogger Kevin Skwerl who runs Antiquiet, decided to leak nine tracks that he received from an “anonymous source.”
Upon returning to work from lunch, a team of FBI agents “ambushed” the Web scribe and forced him to pull the unauthorized music.
Without a hit since the early 90’s, G n’ R clearly aren’t up to speed on using blogs and the Internet as a vehicle to promote their music.
Axl: Can you just release the darn album already?
As it turns out, Antiquiet is a pretty neat blog. They turned me onto a story I hadn’t heard about. Read more about the rock musician who recently told a fan, “Go back to your mom’s house, you 12-year-old dickless fuc*ing turd!”
Wow. He’s angrier than Axl.
