If it’s not a running joke, it should be: Democracy may come to China before Axl Rose finally releases “Chinese Democracy,” the eternally-awaited Guns N’ Roses album that Rose has been “perfecting” for the better part of the millennium.

What’s taking the guy so long? Lawsuits, for one thing.

Rose filed papers in a federal court last week; he’s seeking sole ownership of “all creative works” stemming from his GNR heyday. Rose also claims ex-bandmates Slash and Duff McKagan want to “commercially exploit Guns N’ Roses’ roster of hits.”

That’s funny, because last I checked Slash and McKagan had moved into a successful new outfit and were “commercially exploiting” their own hits.
