    Some parts of Chinese Democracy are quite good. This isn't one of them.

    They Destroyed the Forum with DJ Ashba and Ron Thall last December. See them before Ron leaves the band.

    ''Riad is the name my one time momentary brother in law and the former brother in law of Erin Everly, went by when i knew him. Of part Lebanese descent and a former student of Pepperdine University, he claims to be an international arms dealer, billionaire with ambitions of being "king of the world". He claims to fund several medical organizations and underground Nazi organizations around the world who says his heroes are Napolean and Adolph Hitler. He claims his most prized asset is his anonymity. He also claims to be an expert in military strategy, and was the inspiration for the guns song Civil War, which was written per his request for a song how "people were stupid and he could sell them anything because men love to kill each other". He also claims to be an expert in global finance and money laundering. Living tax free in Belair last I was aware, and claiming to launder monies for wealthy individuals in several countries." - Axl

    Anything with Buckethead or Bumblefoot associated with it needs to be heard multiple times. Get over it GnR fan. As you can see, Slash wasn't nearly the shit ya'll thought. His solos stuff sucks except for that spanish acoustic song they play on the Wave - Smooth Jazz Slash! Buckethead makes his solo in nightrain a mockery. Check You-tube.

    Axl said that the riff reminds him of Hey Bulldog by The Beatles, both are great songs!
