Okay, so I know this isn’t about live music per se but this is still pretty huge news in the music world.

More than a decade after its conception, Guns N’ Roses’ “Chinese Democracy” will finally see the light of day before year’s end, sources close to the situation confirms to . As first reported here, the set will be a Best Buy exclusive and will be available Sunday, Nov. 23, rather than the usual Tuesday.

I’ve purposely avoided any and all musical samples that got leaked earlier this year as I want this whole thing to be a surprise to me. I remember the day that the “black album” came out and where I was when someone brought it into the skate shop I was hanging out at. This was this collective hush in the room when we finally put the album on. I feel that I want to have that experience with this album before having it tainted.

That said, I’m sure many of you have sampled. “It’s like driving past a car crash…you just have to look…” For those of you that have actually heard this potential garbage, what are your thoughts? Can Axl really stage a comeback through GNR or is this guy so far beyond a joke that it’s not even anymore?
