|Here's NME's story about IRS:
Confusion surrounds a new Gunners album ‘Chinese Democracy’, was inadvertently played on New York Q104.3’s ‘Friday Night Rocks With Eddie Trunk’. New York MetsCatcher Mike Piazza, a guest on the show, persuaded Trunk to play a CD marked ‘Guns’n’Roses, ‘IRS’’ last Friday (29 August).
Described by callers as ‘combining rock and techno’, the track is said to distinctly feature Only one track, ‘Madagascar’ – previewed at the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards – had previously been heard from ‘Chinese Democracy’, although they have played the odd new song live.
While management did not take any legal action, Buchmann vouched for the credibility of a new Guns ‘N’ Roses track ending up in the custody of the sportsman. "Mike is a huge music fan. The truth is, Mike is so passionate about certain music that I would argue that he’s in the top ten list of real music fans that a band might circulate unreleased stuff to. Piazza’s a riot. He’s as passionate as they come."
There is still no news of a release date for the long-awaited ‘Chinese Democracy’.
GN'R's video for Don't Cry will be on an MTV2 show called The Definitive. The episode with Don't Cry is (#047) Rooftops.
