The Guns N Roses Aren't Satisfied With Dr. Pepper
The soft-drink maker said in March it would give a free pop to everyone in the country if the band's "Chinese Democracy" album were released this year. Notorious for being delayed since recording began in 1994, the album went on sale Sunday.
Dr. Pepper did offer free Dr. Pepper for 24hrs in its site however the site had several problems and was very unsatisfactory. Lots of people were left with no drinks.
According Gutman the band's lawyer, the band made good on their promise however Dr Pepper did not. This has severely damaged the release of "Chinese Democracy" the Guns new album. The lawyer now demands a full page apology in several high visualized newspapers in the U.S. including the NY Times, LA Times, USA Today, and The Wall Street Journal.
This is not the first time big time artists have problems with these times of companies, 50 Cent has sued Taco Bell Corp. for $4 million in damages by using his name without permission.
