"03.28.03 - The Offspring To Release Chinese Democracy. Multi-platinum Sony artists THE OFFSPRING are recording their new disc with producer Brendan O'Brien in Los Angeles The album is titled Chinese Democracy, which also happens to be the title of the long-awaited GUNS N ROSES album, currently in limbo. When reached for comment, The Offspring's front man/vocalist, Dexter Holland, said "You snooze, you lose." Holland further added, "Axl [Rose] ripped-off my braids, so I ripped-off his album title." Chinese Democracy, The Offspring's seventh album is scheduled for release in late spring. It follows Conspiracy of One, also produced by O'Brien." I think this is absolutely hilrious. Serves Axl right. http://www.offspring.com Also, in other relayed news, for those who may not have heard, The Offspring's drummer of 15 years, Ron Welty has left the band to go onto other things. The replacement (I'm not sure if this is permanent, or if it's just for the upcoming album) is A Perfect Circle's Josh Freese.
