15 Years Ago and a Friday Round Up

The last time Guns'N'Roses released an album George Bush Snr was just handing over the US presidency to Bill Clinton, Intel were shipping the first pentium chips, Monica Seles was stabbed in the back by an obsessed fan of rival Steffi Graf, Brandon Lee was accidentally killed during the filming of The Crow, Microsoft unveiled Windows NT and the words "ipod" and "mp3" meant nothing to us. Yes it's been 15 years and if you're still a G'N'R fan, this Nov 23rd is a date you should be penciling onto your G'N'R calender. The date has finally been set for the release of their 'Chinese Democracy' album and if you can't wait until then, they've already released a song off the new album to wet your appetite (and it's legal!), here it is:

Chinese Democracy - Guns N Roses

Not only this, US manufactured soft drink Dr Pepper had promised a free soft drink to all Americans if Guns N' Roses released a new album in 2008 and has said it will honour its pledge. According to wikipedia, that's a whopping 300 million potentially thirsty people! Does this also cover Americans living abroad?

In other news:
Daniel Johnston is hitting the road for another European tour;
Snow patrol are streaming their entire new album on the Internet before it's official release;

I'm holding another Living Room Concert this weekend and as usual the location and artist remains a secret until the event is over. I'll be posting videos, photos and a review of the evening at the beginning of next week.

Anything else?
