Is "Chinese Democracy" Close? Axl Rose Gets Top Management Team

By |

The folks at Dr. Pepper may be handing out soda sooner than they thought. Yesterday, Axl Rose announced that Guns N' Roses will now be represented by Irving Azoff (who most recently handled Guns spinoff project Velvet Revolver) and Andy Gould. Rose's band hasn't had management since December 2006, when he split from former manager Merck Mercuriadis. Axl didn't reveal any other details, but the watch for the 13-years-in-the-making album Chinese Democracy is back on. Azoff, the former top executive at MCA, has managed Christina Aguilera, Eagles and Van Halen, among others. Gould is a former member of talent agency the Firm and has most notably managed Rob Zombie. It's probably safe to say that if these two guys can't whip Axl into shape, then Chinese Democracy will likely remain a legend.
