GUNS N' ROSES DELIVER ALBUM BY BIKE

Chinese Democracy Guns N' Roses

Legendary rockers Guns N' Roses release their first new album in 15 years today and used 100 London cycle couriers to deliver it to select music stores in and around the capital during a special preview evening last night.

Music weekly NME reports that each courier carried 15 copies of the album Chinese Democracy, officially released to the public today (Monday, November 24), to stores where selected customers had pre-ordered the album.

The hard-rocking Los Angeles band fronted by Axl Rose elected to use a photo of a basket-equipped delivery bicycle on the cover of the new CD, hence the choice of cycle couriers for its delivery. The album is alleged to have cost between $13-15 million to make. That's a lot of bicycles. Even ones with Super Record.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
