Hoping the reclusive rock star won't drop dead before he can finish his long-awaited album, Dr Pepper is begging Axl Rose to finally release GNR's "Chinese Democracy."
Here's the deal - the good Dr will prescribe everyone in America (except estranged guitarists Slash and Buckethead) a free can of Dr Pepper if Axl gets it together and releases the album sometime, anytime, in 2008. No lies --TMZ spoke to media reps for Dr Pepper -- they confirmed the authenticity of the offer 100%.
Fans -- some of whom are now approaching middle age -- have been waiting in their flannels for a new Guns N' Roses album since 1993. Welcome to the career slump!
