Jesse 'the Devil' Hughes @ MHOW (more by Zach Dilgard)
Eagles of Death Metal

Guns N' Roses new album "Chinese Democracy" is streaming in its entirety at MySpace. Find out what Eagle of Death Metal Jesse Hughes (someone who has a controversial past with Axl) thinks of it in the video below...

Eagles of Death Metal frontman Jesse "The Devil" Hughes really wanted to hate Guns N' Roses' new album, Chinese Democracy. Ever since his band was booted from GN'R's 2006 tour, after a single performance in Cleveland, you could say there's been bad blood between Hughes and Guns mainman Axl Rose. So Hughes has been waiting to get his hands on the oft-delayed, more-than-a-decade-in-the-making LP, hoping it would be an abysmal catastrophe.

But Hughes' verdict is in: "You can't say it's a bad record -- you just can't do it."

Hughes, whose band was dubbed "Pigeons of Sh-- Metal" by Rose, joined MTV News for a brief Chinese Democracy listening session Monday at the Downtown Records offices. He shared his thoughts on one of the most anticipated albums of the last 10 years, set for release November 23. [MTV]

i agree with most of what he says, but how can he think chinese democracy is good? it's pretty awful upon first listen.

They also gave out free 12 packs at the listening party on Monday at Webster Hall.

i listened to it with an open mind, and it's just awfully painful to sit through

^^^ Well yeah, if Dan Deacon is your idea of "good music" then GNR would be tough to sit through.

"The Devil" nailed it! Guns are not the same and to call them Guns and Roses is really an insult!

why does everyone bring dan deacon up when someone insults a band they don't like? it's the most immature attitude, because i would assume most people don't like dan deacon.

and yes, this album is bad and pretty hard to sit through. and he didn't say that guns n roses are tough to sit through, he said the new album is. it's not gnr. it's axl. appetite was good. chinese democracy is not.

During the Eagles of Death Metal show at the 930 Club in Washington DC, Jesse revealed to the crowd his new, "Pigeons of Shit Metal," tattoo he said he had inked in town on his left forearm. It was still all shiny and crap when he was showing it off.

back to dan deacon for a sec... I just realized he was the lead singer in this ridiculous long island ska band in the late 90s called channel 59. they had this song called bionic man hands, "she wants to know why her hands, why they gotta be this way, bionic man hands!!" he was wayy fatter back then so it threw me off for a while but it was definitely matter how hard he tries to escape it

Stephanie Seymour still says it sucks.

It is the same shit as SP playing without D'arcy and James. This album is awful and Axl's screaming is unbearable. To think that was one of the reasons why we loved him in the past...

holy fart do i luv this mystical man. Jesse, that is. Axl can suck a nut.

looks like Jeff "Skunk" Baxter to me.

If Dan Deacon joined GNR - then all the hipsters would love it!

It's far from perfect, but Chinese Democracy works a lot better than I expected it to. It's a more interesting than anything by Velvet Revolver, that's for sure.

after listening to it I kinda felt washed up....

this album is the emperors new clothes in album form. i've listened to the entire album twice and can honestly say it's utter rubbish. couple of songs i like, better, for instance but it oddly manages to sound more out of touch than if they'd re written appetite. the music is souless, a polished turd. i love classic rock, i'm even a professional guitarist and i so so wanted this album to be great...but it isnt, not even close. people shouldnt be afraid of saying so either.
rant over, going to listen to AC/DC's Black Ice-THAT's rock'n'roll!
