GUNS N' ROSES' 'Chinese Democracy' In 2006: What Are The Odds?

MTV.com reports: Back in October, GUNS N' ROSES' management issued a press statement addressing the release of the band's oft-delayed, $15-million, dozen-years-in-the-making album, "Chinese Democracy". It said: "The only comment at this time is that there are 13 Tuesdays left between now and the end of the year" — insinuating, it would seem, that the LP could finally see the light of day before the end of 2006.

"It will come out this year," GN'R ringmaster Axl Rose has steadfastly insisted in interviews, during press junkets and even while unwinding at parties. He said so on Eddie Trunk's radio show in May, and repeated it after his appearance at the VMAs on August 31.

Those claims are supported somewhat by the fact that the band has been gigging since the spring, both in the U.S. and abroad. Granted, GN'R also toured in 2002, the last time album-release speculation reached this height. Several tracks purported to be either from the album or demo versions of songs from it leaked in February, which may lend some credence to his statements.
