I was on vacation so I didn't get to reply in this thread...that's why I'm bumping it.
Well first of all the full version of Better leaked and so has There Was A Time. A 9 second clip of Catcher In The Rye leaked too, although I haven't been able to find it yet.
GN'R has also been confirmed for a few European rock festivals in a few months, starting with Rock In Rio 5 on May 27th in Lisbon, Portugal. I can't wait. It's for real this time, the album is coming.
To all those saying Chinese Democracy will suck, keep an open mind. A song they played on the '02 tour called The Blues is amazing...could be compared to the likes of November Rain and Estranged. There Was A Time is a great song too. If you want to hear them please let me know I want people to hear what the current Guns N' Roses can do before writing them off. They really are a talented group. Don't base them on that horrific performance at the VMA's, they played some awesome shows in '01 and '02 and the new leaks are really impressive.
