Axl Rose Has Very Large, Low-Hanging Balls
Lest he be outdone by his old rivals in Metallica, Axl Rose has announced that he, too, will release a 3D concert film this summer. It’s called Appetite for Democracy, because it was filmed during the band’s Las Vegas residency of the same name, which is a reference both to the fact that it was the month of November, and that the band’s most recent album is called Chinese Democracy.
Of course, the movie isn’t coming out during election season, and the trailer doesn’t feature a single song from Chinese Democracy, so some fans may be confused. Those same fans will probably be even more confused when they go see the movie and the band’s performance opens with the song “Chinese Democracy.”
In Rose’s defense, it’s not as though he hired the director of some shitty sci-fi movie and the eightieth lead from Lincoln and pretended he was making high art. There is really no pretense here that this is anything but a cash grab.
