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.

Song Stories


The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
