You Know It's Gonna Get Stranger

... So Let's Get On With The Show!

March, as the saying goes, comes in like a lion and out like a lamb.

Then March 2008 came in and flipped that saying on it's head.

Things were pretty quiet here on March 1, with no news in sight, and as we moved through the one-year anniversary of the March 6, 2007 "tentative release date," the silence from Axl and Friends was deafening.

But then, all of a sudden, its the Vernal Equinox and Scott Weiland announces he's leaving Velvet Revolver.

Spring is here!

While we watched the dust settle on that momentous news, a small press release caught our attention a mere 4 days later:

Dr. Pepper Challenges Axl Rose to Release Chinese Democracy.

Well, that's got to be some kind of April Fools' joke. Right?

Apparently not (as of this writing).

But wait, here comes the bombshell ...

Axl responds to Dr. Pepper, hints that "The Album" will be out this year, AND that Buckethead plays on it.

This is the first peep we've heard from Axl Rose since August.


"Axl Responds to Dr. Pepper" ? It's just so surreal.

What's next? Slash fires back at Mrs. Butterworth?


Less than 24 hours later, Axl pops up again and announces something Really Big:

"Guns N’ Roses and I are now represented by the management team of Irving Azoff and Andy Gould. We are very excited and look forward to working with them and hope our relationship proves beneficial for everyone, especially the fans."

Azoff and Gould? Not only do these guys represent Scott Weiland (coincidence?), but they are major, Big-Shot, Industry powerhouses.

These guys come with a HEFTY price tag.

In my opinion, this can only mean one thing:

CHINESE DEMOCRACY STARTS NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
