I'll cop to a sick fascination with Axl Rose. I find him compelling in a kooky and slightly sad Brian Wilson way, rather than a hide-the-kids completely depressing Michael Jackson way. CNN is reporting that he gave a radio interview today (his first since 2002!) and said that the long-awaited Guns 'n Roses album Chinese Democracy would be out this fall.
Take note that the interview was brought about when Sebastian Bach, formerly of Skid Row, called Axl Rose on his cell phone. Can I tell you how much it cracks me up to think of these two aging rockers, one with an awesome role on Gilmore Girls, calling each other to chit chat?
Axl: "Dude, Lorelei is hot, do you think she's going to end up back with Christopher?"
Sebastian: "Dude, I don't know. But how awesome was my bat mitzvah cover of Hollaback Girl?"
I'll believe there is actually an album called Chinese Democracy when I see it in stores. If you haven't already read it, check out this April Fool's "review" of Chinese Democracy by Chuck Klosterman.
