DR PEPPER PRESSES AXL ROSE TO UNVEIL ALBUM:
March 26, 2008
Soft drink giant Dr Pepper is so desperate for Guns N’ Roses rocker Axl Rose to release his new LP, they are offering free soda as an incentive.
The company has promised that if Rose releases “Chinese Democracy” at any point in 2008, everyone in America will receive a free can of Dr. Pepper, reports PageSix.com.
A company spokesman says, “It took a little patience for us to perfect Dr Pepper’s special mix of 23 ingredients, so we completely understand and empathize with Axl’s question for the perfect album.”
Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose responded Wednesday to a Dr Pepper press release. “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.”
