CD Leaks Discussion Thread **NO LINKS, NO ASKING / HINTING FOR LEAKS** in GUNS N' ROSES - DISCUSSION & NEWS Posted September 17, 2019 25 minutes ago, Bozo said: What people seems to forget is the unbelieveble mess, from the legal standpoint, that this recordings may be part of. Ranging from songwriters, performers, producers, engineers, record company, publisher company. Imagine what kind of deals must be solved to put out something that started to be conceived 20 years ago. Make a mistake and a litigation is waiting around the corner. Just remember the emphasis that Axl stated in his recent interviews bout the business aspects of the music career, and how he regrets not forming his own label. Yet somehow, thousands of albums are able to be released every year. Axl has access to the top “music industry” lawyers in the business. The label has access to the best industry lawyers in the world. Imo he isn’t holding up releasing an album because he can’t figure out what credit to give to buckethead on some of the songs. A more realistic guess would be him doing it out of spite and holding a grudge for ex-members leaving the band. He doesn’t release certain songs because he doesn’t want those ex-band members to get fat checks from them.
