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]
