Axl Rose allows Chinese Democracy to be downloaded


Guns N’ Roses are to release their latest studio album, Chinese Democracy as a download for the ‘Rock Band’ console game.

The album, which famously took Axl Rose fifteen years to complete will be available this Spring as a ‘full record of downloadable content.’

Speaking to Billboard, the singer said: “They [MTV Games / Harmonix] felt the record-based on the nature and complexity of the depth of instrumentation-deserved a bit more attention and some more involved elements than they’ve generally dealt with. I have no idea what that means but it’s my understanding they were very enthusiastic.”

Other artists available to play on the ‘virtual’ band game on Playstation 3 and XBox consoles include Grateful Dead, AC/DC and Thin Lizzy.
