In a turn of events stranger than the weirdest Guns N Roses video, beverage company Dr. Pepper has offered to give away a free can of the drink to everyone in the world if the band comes out with the extremely long-awaited album, Chinese Democracy, this year. Yesterday, Axl Rose responded:
We are surprised and very happy to have the support of Dr. Pepper with our album Chinese Democracy, as for us, this came totally out of the blue. If there is any involvement with this promotion by our record company or others, we are unaware of such at this time. And as some of Buckethead’s performances are on our album, I’ll share my Dr. Pepper with him [Rolling Stone]
The Guns N’ Roses weirdness never ends!
