The current incarnation of GUNS N' ROSES—led by sole remaining original member Axl Rose—have reportedly set September 2nd as the release date for their perennially-delayed Chinese Democracy CD—nearly three years after the original release date, according to Undercover.
Rose is said to have recorded over 70 songs for this record with various producers. In February, he fired producer Roy Thomas Baker who had been brought in to replace Sean Beaven.
It is unsure who will have credits on this version of the record, if it actually comes out. Rose recently commented on the record saying "we're in the studio doing this album and I can promise you that we're gonna deliver and it's gonna be out of the ballpark. We've been working on this album and I can tell you we're doing our best and that's all I can promise".
The GUNS 'N' ROSES line-up for the record is Axl Rose (vocals), Robin Finck (guitar), Buckethead (guitar), Chris Pittman (keyboards), Tommy Stinson (bass), Dizzy Reed (keyboards) and Brain (drums).
The band performed in Las Vegas last December and debuted a number of songs expected to be on the album. Among them were: "Oh My God", "Madagascar", "Chinese Democracy", "The Blues" and "Silk Worms".
To date, the only song that has been officially released is "Oh My God" which featured on the 1999 movie soundtrack to End of Days.
