Is this even relevant anymore?

Axl Rose is claiming that Chinese Democracy will be out this fall. CD, for those of you who don't care, is the sprawling Frankenalbum that Axl and "Guns 'n' Roses" have been working on for eight years, if not longer. Every year or so, Axl crawls out from wherever he's hiding to claim that the album will be ready soon.

The last GnR studio album was...wait for it...FIFTEEN YEARS AGO. They had their brief, shining moment, but there's no way Axl Rose is relevant anymore. Some bands can survive personnel changes and get (arguably) better. Some can't. Axl still seems to suffer under the delusion that he alone defined Guns 'n' Roses, when the fact is that it took all five of them--even the poor, drug-addled Steven Adler--to make a band.

Nobody really cares about Axl Rose all by himself. Probably not even Axl.
