The Chartreuse Official Grammy Weekend Post (Or Artists Gone Wild!)

February 7, 2009

One of the more interesting stories in the history of music is the one about the Guns & Roses album, ‘Chinese Democracy’. It took almost 20 years to create. In between most of the band members quit.

The band signed a deal with Best Buy to be the only distributor of the album. Best Buy expected to sell 1.2 million. It has barely sold 500,000 worldwide.

The album came out in November of 2008.Parts of the album was leaked as far back as 2003 .

The band refused to put out videos for the album.

The leader of the band, Axl Rose, refused to do interviews and hasn’t done one in 9 years.
