GUNS N’ ROSES Track Leaked - Eddie Trunk Comments! [Rock Hard - 03.09.04 15:13:12]

Toronto’s Much Music (www.muchmusic.com/news) reported that New York Mets catcher Mike Piazza raised the ire of Guns N’ Roses management by playing what he said was a track that may appear on the long delayed Chinese Democracy album on a New York radio station.

Piazza convinced the host to play a CD marked "Guns N' Roses - I.R.S." If the song is genuine, it is the first new track from G N' R to be heard by the public since they debuted a new track at last year's MTV Video Music Awards.

G N' R's management called the station to request that the track not be played again, but it is reportedly already making the rounds on the Internet. How the song came to be in the hands of Mike Piazza remains a mystery.

Radio personality Eddie Trunk (www.eddietrunk.com) has posted the following regarding the situation:

“Quick update on the GN’R news. Today's NY Post has a story about the airing on my show, and tonight, MTV will run a story on TV about the exclusive airing. It is also already on just about every major music news site! The buzz just keeps getting bigger on this!! Piazza and I have been blown away by the response. Please email me through this site for press requests, etc.

”I have been HAMMERED with email from all over the globe regarding my exclusive airing of the new Guns N’ Roses track ‘IRS’ this past Friday. This has become a MAJOR story, and I'm trying to get back to as many people as I can, but simply cannot respond to everybody. Here is the latest on what went down:

“My friend and occasional co-host Mike Piazza paid a visit to the show close to Midnight. As you could imagine, Mike gets a tremendous amount of fan mail, and being a hard rock and GN’R fan, lot's of CDs in his mail. Mike came in with a CD that was labeled as new Guns. It was packaged anonymously. Mike wasn't sure if it was legit, but we put it on the air, and the phones went nuts. The song was called ‘IRS’ and sounded like Illusion-era GN’R, with a few modern touches (loops, samples in intro). I don't think it was 100% complete, but sounded pretty close. We took live calls about it, and people were blown away at the exclusive they just heard on my show (not to mention it was a star baseball player that came up with it!). I like GN’R, but I'm not a fanatic, but I must say, the song was really good. There were other tracks and music on the CD as well, but I only had a chance to listen to them on the ride home. Mike left the CD with me, so I could determine what to do with it from there. Questions of how legit this recording was were quickly squashed when I started to get calls and email from the bands management on Saturday. This was VERY legit! A few facts here:

“It will NOT be played again! Now that I know it was legit, I have co-operated completely with the bands management, and have been asked to turn over the CD, which I did. I no longer have it. It was not labeled in anyway, it was just a burned CDR.

“The song will not be included on the replay show. I have been forced to edit it out (another reason why my show is best heard live!) There are legal issues if you don't comply, and I will be served with papers to prohibit the repeated airing even if I still had it and wanted to!! It will not be heard again until it is an official release.

“The rest of the CD was also cool. It sounded like a total of 3 songs, with instrumental versions of each of the 3, making a total of 6 tracks (I think). The last track, which I did not play, was the best. A great rocker, with tons of shredding guitar from Buckethead. I don't know what the title was, but I kinda wish I had the chance to play that one as well. Mike and I didn't really know what we had, so we just played the first track ‘IRS’.

“We have no idea where this came from. Mike threw out the packaging when he went through his fan mail weeks ago. I would say it was somebody that works in a studio, or perhaps an intentional leak to build buzz. Of course I'm just thrilled they picked my show and Mike to send it to! If you remember, there were also reports a couple months ago of Axl playing this music in strip clubs, maybe another source? Again, we have no idea!

“Again, I have co-operated fully with the bands management. It will not be replayed and I no longer have it. Like I always say, you never know what's going to happen on the show! This is just another reason why you should be hammering your local stations to carry my show live. It is available anywhere in the US. Your voice counts! If you don't get the show, tell your local stations program directors you want it!! Piazza hung out for a couple hours total, and the always hysterical Jim Breuer dropped by after a Metallica club show. Just a great way to kick off the Labor Day weekend. A great mix of music, talk and giveaways, and of course, exclusive music!”
