Slash Lays Into G'n'r Bootlegger

by | 01 September 2008

Former GUNS N ROSES guitarist Slash has blasted the bootlegger who reportedly leaked nine songs from the band's long-awaited album CHINESE DEMOCRACY.

The album has become something of an industry joke, having now been almost 14 years in the making.

However, the FBI arrested Kevin Cogill earlier this week after he posted completed songs on his website in June.

Currently released on bail, he could still face up to three years in prison and $250,000 (£138,000) in fines.

Slash – who has not been part of the band since 1997 – had some strong word or Cogill's actions

"I hope he rots in jail. It's going to affect the sales of the record, and it's not fair. The internet is what it is, and you have to deal with it accordingly, but I think if someone goes and steals something, it's theft."

It was recently reported that Dr Pepper was offering a free can of its drink to everyone in the US if the album is released this year.
