yes Axels a jerk but this storys a hoax - just another April Fools - orignanally from Spin's wbsite.http://www.nypost.com/gossip/pagesix/66396.htm"Spin magazine got an early jump on April Fool's Day with Chuck Klosterman's deceptively straight-faced 'review' of 'Chinese Democracy', the infamously long-awaited GUNS N' ROSES album. While we may have glazed over the 'April 1, 2006,' stamp at the beginning of the review, posted on Spin's Web site last week, we began to get suspicious when Klosterman wrote of the still-unreleased record, '[Axl] Rose has also retained his pathological distaste for the media, lyrically attacking the editors of Vanity Fair, MTV personality Sway, numerous teenage bloggers, and the City Hall reporter for the Cincinnati Enquirer [who, curiously, has never written about pop music].' Klosterman's statement that CLASH frontman Joe Strummer contributed guitar on a song called 'Janky Holocaust' just two weeks before his death in 2002 was even reported as fact by a few music Web sites. Which was exactly the idea, apparently. 'We just wanted to see how long it would take for the blogs to figure it out,' Spin spokesgal Elaine Garza confessed."looks like you lot never did - eh?
