The rockers seem to be very upset with the website that leaked their songs from the band's upcoming LP "Chinese Democracy" as they even included FBI to investigate the case.
Guns N' Roses are serious with their legal threat against the website that leaked 9 of their songs from the band's long awaited LP "Chinese Democracy" and proving it the band have even asked the help from the higher rank of the U.S. authorities. The band reportedly have called in the assistant of FBI to investigate the website, Antiquiet.com, that was leaking their songs.
According to the latest reports, the website owner Kevin Skwerl was being visited by two FBI agents on June 23, at lunch hour and on June 24, at 7:00 A.M. The agents were asking Kevin where he got the GNR's tracks from and asked him to hand over the original files of the songs. Unfortunately, he could only give them the copies since he has erased the original ones.
Revealing about that story, Kevin told Rollingstone.com, "It was kind of an ambush. When I came back from lunch they were waiting in the lobby for me. It's a little creepy they know where I work. I wasn't sure if they were going to come by with a warrant and trash the place, like in the movies. It was nothing like that."
Kevin also revealed that his action has caused him lots of trouble, other than the legal problems as the blogger stated he also received a shout from his web host. "My host contacts me and says, 'What the f**k did you do? I go, Uhhhh. I posted some music. He goes, What exactly did you post? I go, Uhhhh. New Guns N' Roses. He goes, 'Motherf****r.'" Moreover, the web owner also believes that despite the seriousness of the investigation he won't be facing any charges saying, "I'm not so worried about that. It's a legal grey area since it wasn't for download, it wasn't a finished product. We aren't sure who owns the recordings. I feel like I might survive this."
