He’s been working on it for more than 14 years now, and still, there are no concrete signs that AXL ROSE’s magnum opus, the oft-delayed "Chinese Democracy," will be in stores anytime soon, reports MTV. But several unnamed sources are now saying the long-awaited album could soon be coming to your local WAL-MART.
The report claims that negotiations have begun to make "Chinese Democracy" a retail exclusive, either at WAL-MART OR BEST BUY. The report further purports that negotiations to distribute the record through conventional channels have also been ongoing.
Of course, no one from GUNS N’ ROSES’ management firm, FRONT LINE MANAGEMENT, was available to comment on these rumors, but IRVING AZOFF, who runs FRONT LINE, did work with the EAGLES to get their "Long Road Out of Eden" on WAL-MART’s shelves, making that album an exclusive for the chain. Additionally, representatives from BEST BUY and WAL-MART would not confirm the rumors.
