I don’t doubt there was a good measure of record company nonsense but the point is these things weren’t unique to other big acts.

Instead Axl put his housekeeper in charge.

I suspect there was some level of malfeasance afoot by multiple parties involved. This to say nothing of the opaque yet legitimate tax write offs, mergers, what have you.

I’m not optimistic the record company wanted it out post Mar 2004 when the plug was officially pulled.

I listened to Chinese on EU vinyl tonight. Sounds incredible in comparison to the disc version.

To be fair Axl put his housekeeper in charge way late in the game.
Before her it was Doug (a Hanger on) and Merck, a successful manager on his own before embarking on the GNR craziness thing.

I'm not AT ALL excusing Axl, I think he was the one the holding the project from achieving all the heights it could, but I also think the record company has its blame.

Merck was the worst of them all....was the manager at a crucial point in time and stupidly fell into the rabbit hole of forum politics and spent half his time sending emails to Madison and chineseblues about irrelevant bullshit.

He should've been fired a year before he was.

Merck there’s way better songs on Chinese than IRS and Checkmate isn’t a GNR song Mercuriadis

And yeah probably but he saved the project before Azoff and his boss was a loon so he gets a pass
