“Atlas Shrugged” Leaks Online Apparently & More Unreleased “Chinese Democracy’ Material Surfaces
A new topic at the Guns N’ Roses fan forum MyGNRForum discussed the unreleased material from the band during the “Chinese Democracy” sessions and a 3 second clip of the song “Atlas Shrugged” has leaked online. I have heard the snippet and it’s difficult to say much about the song since I haven’t heard the whole thing. But, there have been some interesting posts on the forum with one fan (AxlRoseFan4Life) saying there is tons of unreleased leaks out there
story continued below…
There is a ton of stuff that is out there that hasn’t leaked! Over 15 cds from Chinese sessions have been found in some geffen executive storage locker. The gnr stuff in locker was sold to a fan who has all this stuff. Tracks include Perhaps ( 3rd Brain May song ), zodiac , hard school ( u know it as checkmate ), Oklahoma, atlas, billionaire, 3 dollar pyramid, and all of afd re recorded and so much more.
He would go onto say
I’ve heard a clip. Not sure what the board members wants for it tho. I’ve tried reaching out no reply. I’ve spoken to the guy who originally purchased the locker and got a lot of info from him. There isn’t really nothin to trade for it cuz it’s the mother load.
Only a few people have been involved with it which I’m not gonna reveal any names but it’s a small circle. The cds are from recording sessions at The Village
He would go onto say
Zutaut (formerly worked on Chinese Democracy in 2001) had two lockers. One locker contained UYI dat tapes. The second locker contained Chinese tracks recorded at the village pre bucket. The 15 cds are not just full songs. Example one cd had various drum tracks and guitar tracks. There are a lot of instrumentals. Only about 15 songs have actual lyrics. In fact the way this was found out was because for a short time 1 cd appears on eBay. But was removed when the board member from this part purchased it and then bought the rest of them
both lockers were sold! The uyi tapes was sold to a group of collectors who chipped in. But it’s nothin real special because they sound just like the final versions. Locker 2 with Chinese stuff was sold to 1 person and that person is a member of this board. They refuse to talk tho which is understandable. I know who all buyers are. I’ve spoken to the original person who bought locker which Chinese stuff! He isn’t a gnr fan so he didn’t realize value of what he had
“This is awesome. Interesting they are all pre Bucket, though. I wonder if songs like Atlas, General, etc are included in the 15”
Not general that was during buckets time. But atlas, thyme, zodiac ( 2 versions ), hard school, perhaps, going down ( tommy only ), Oklahoma, the rebel, appetite re recorded, dummy , billionaire ,
