Did this guy really need to be arrested? He probably gave this project more press and hype than any major media outlet in the last 13 years.
He actually pushed the project forward and got people excited again about this album that is neck and neck with Dre’s Detox with album’s that people have been anticipating but dissapointed every year when it does not see the light of day. Unbelievable!!!!
LOS ANGELES (AP) – Federal authorities say they have arrested a blogger suspected of streaming songs from Guns N’ Roses unreleased album, “Chinese Democracy,” on his Web site.FBI agents arrested 27-year-old Kevin Cogill on Wednesday morning on suspicion of violating federal copyright laws. Federal authorities say Cogill posted nine unreleased Guns N’ Roses songs on his Web site in June.
The songs were later removed.
According to an arrest affidavit, Cogill admitted to agents that he posted the songs on his Web site.
“Chinese Democracy” is a much anticipated—and repeatedly delayed—new album by Guns N’ Roses that is more than 10 years in the making.
