According to Kerrang! this is the year that the album will see the light of day:
Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose has finished work on the long-awaited album Chinese Democracy.
The band’s label Geffen has confirmed they are in possession of the album - which cost a reported $6.5 million to make - and are currently fleshing out an agreement with Rose over its release.
Looks like he wanted that free can of Dr Pepper!
The Dr Pepper thing is of course referring to this story.
