Ok, did we really expect it to happen?
Whether we did or not, it seems that Nov 23rd is the final release date to be pencilled in for the long awaited Chinese Democracy album from Guns N' Roses. According to the BBC (linky) and The Guardian(linky), the release date is finally set for the US. The European release date has not yet been confirmed, but we wouldn't expect it to be too far behind.
While this is great news for every metal/rock fan, as we finally get to see/hear what 15 years of production is going to give us, however it's not such good news for Dr Pepper - having previously promised everyone a can of Dr Pepper if Chinese Democracy was released in 2008. Sadly, I think this promise for the US only, so I guess I'm going to miss out :(
Update: The online version of the the title track is no longer available online, so the link has been removed.
