Video collection to hold fans over until new album surfaces

October 15, 2003 12:00 AM ET

More than twelve years have passed since Guns n' Roses issued an album of new, original material. And while last fall's busted tour only teased at a potential release for the long-awaited Chinese Democracy, fans will finally have some material to scoop up on October 28th with the release of Welcome to the Videos and two Use Your Illusion: World Tour 1992 in Tokyo on DVD.

The video collection will cover the band's first clip, for "Welcome to the Jungle," through the group's epic Andy Morahan-directed videos for "Don't Cry," "November Rain," "Yesterdays," "Estranged" and "Garden of Eden."

The two Illusion DVDs were originally released on video in 1992 after their counterpart albums of the same title.

As for Gn'R's current doings, there has been no word about the status of Chinese Democracy. A message that read, "Stay tuned for news and information on Chinese Democracy coming soon," was posted on the band's official Web site in March, months after the plug was pulled on its 2002 winter tour.

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
