You win some, you lose one.
Guns N' Roses has landed a new management team headed by veteran rock manager Irving Azoff just as the band abruptly learned that guitarist Robin Finck is returning to his place in Nine Inch Nails for that band's summer tour, which reaches the Forum on Sept. 6.
"Robin's plans caught everyone in Guns, as well as our fans, a bit off-guard," reads a post on GNR's website. "Neither we nor management, etc., know any more in this regard and we prefer not to speculate or offer opinions at this time."
As for the hard-rock band's long-delayed album, the post goes on to say that the group is "in negotiations for the release of 'Chinese Democracy' and things are going well."
