Chinese Democracy, Nov 25, through Best Buy ???

from Chinese Democracy When

The end is near. GNR management has visited Best Buy and sampled 3 tracks to build excitement. Shackler's is on Rock Band 2 and If The World will appear during the credits of the new DiCaprio/Crowe movie Body of Lies on October 10. All of this can only mean one thing: the album is coming, but when?


Travel to mygnrforum.com Guns N Roses Forum (Powered by Invision Power Board) and you'll visit my online home for the past 10 years. These folks love GNR more than life itself, but they've been burned more times than a California forest. They've seen releases dates come and go like political promises, but unlike the past 7 years, this time, it just seems real. The date that keeps popping up is November 25, the tuesday before Thanksgiving. The album is to be a Best Buy exclusive (not sure if that means iTunes also gets it), nonetheless, fans would fish this album out of dumpster if it were meant hearing the first original work from Axl in 17 years!


To the fans, enjoy this time. You've all waited so patiently and been through a lot of let downs, but having heard some of what will be on Chinese D, the wait will have been worth it. We're getting the soda ready on our end and on November 25, hopefully we'll all be toasting to Chinese Democracy together




from 411mania.com

According to RollingStone.com, it is rumored that Guns N' Roses' long-awaited new album Chinese Democracy will be released exclusively through Best Buy on November 25.

The source of the rumor is a supposed "vendor convention" that Best Buy had on Wednesday in Dallas, Texas. Guns manager Andy Gould told the 900 employees the news about Chinese Democracy before previewing three songs from the album.

Gould also reportedly revealed that the new GN'R song "If The World" will be featured in the closing credits for the upcoming Leonardo DiCaprio/Russell Crowe film "Body of Lies", which was confirmed by message boarders on movie websites (like IMDB) who happened to catch a press screening of the film yesterday.




and ALSO THIS!!!

Best Buy Snags Guns N' Roses album exclusive - Yahoo! News

NEW YORK (Billboard) - Best Buy will be the exclusive retailer for Guns N' Roses' long-in-the-works new album "Chinese Democracy" before year's end, sources close to the situation told Billboard.

Some details of the deal are still being worked out, including the release date.

The news brings a semblance of closure to the bizarre history of "Democracy," which Guns N' Roses has been working on since the mid-1990s. Since then, every original member, with the exception of vocalist Axl Rose, has left the once-mighty group, and millions of dollars have been spent working on the new material.

"Democracy" was most recently on the Interscope release schedule in March 2007. The endless delays encountered by the project reached comic levels this spring, when soft drink manufacturer Dr Pepper offered to send a free can of the beverage to "everyone in America" (excluding ex-GNR members Slash and Buckethead) if "Chinese Democracy" were to arrive during the calendar year 2008.

In June, nine purported "mastered, finished" tracks from the album were leaked online, prompting an FBI investigation into their source. A sign that "Chinese Democracy" was perhaps nearing release came in July, when the band agreed to debut new track "Shackler's Revenge" in the video game "Rock Band 2," which hit stores earlier this month.

Guns N' Roses is now managed by Irving Azoff's Front Line Management, and Azoff is a well-known proponent of issuing albums through exclusive deals with retailers. He released the Eagles' "Long Road Out of Eden" through Wal-Mart in 2007, much to the chagrin of other merchants, but the album was a runaway hit, having sold 3.1 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.










so.. could this be it ?!!?!?!

The release date has yet to be officially confirmed by GN'R's label, Interscope, the band's manager, Andy Gould, or Rose himself. But all signs seem to indicate that the album no one ever thought would see the light of retail will be in stores in time for the holiday shopping season.

I don't even care for GNR outside of a few songs, but I'm even going to buy this album. It's nothing short of a miracle.
