Dr. Pepper loves Mr. Brownstone

Did you hear about this? Dr. Pepper issued a press release stating that they would give everyone in the country a free can of Dr. Pepper if Guns N' Roses (the current version) actually releases it's album Chinese Democracy this calendar year. Read full article here from Rollingstone.com. I didn't see it on Dr. Pepper's website and I am not sure how the issuing would actually happen, but that would be sweet.

Axl responded politely actually (I would have expected a slam from the explosive front man). He said he appreciated Dr. Pepper's support of the album. His quote: “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.”

I think the bigger issue here is that picture of Axl.

I honestly had to looks THREE times to to see if that was really him.

Where did he go? Where did he go now? Where did he go-oh-oh-oh?

Seriously? He looks awful.

I heard about this and was a little surprised. Dr. Pepper seems to have its shit together, and I was curious as to why they decided to get behind a band that has such a tool for a lead singer.

I have to say the best part of this situation is that they said they'd give a can to everyone EXCEPT Slash and Buckethead. As Iris mentioned, there's no details on how they would distribute the Dr Pepper, but I'm more concerned with how they will keep Slash from getting a can!
