I don't know who I should feel sorry for. Axl Rose for his mindless sad MP3 crusade or the fan that forgot just how money minded the singer is. 28-year-old Kevin Cogill posted nine tracks from the record on the website antiquiet.com in June 2008 and pleaded guilty to his crime in December. He's been given two months home detention. http://www.myspace.com/gunsnroses Daniel Johnston Daniel Johnston is coming over here in November to celebrate his reissue (‘Yip Jump Music’ and ‘Continued Story / Hi, How Are You’) campaign of 2009.
