Axl Rose took fifteen years to finish his new album. It would have taken longer, had I not called him and given him a list of clear reasons why the album had to come out this year. My friend Richard Barham made an animated video of our interaction that visually detailed the urgency of the album's release. So just remember, when you're listening to "Chinese Democracy", all it took was a post-punk laptop rapper with Axl Rose's home phone number to serve as a catalyst for the release of the most anticipated album of the last two decades. This song is from the "Green Christmas EP", available 11/25/08. You can download it here.
