Guns N' Roses' recording company Geffen Records have reportedly put the blame on Axl Rose regarding the market's not-quite-positive response over their latest LP "Chinese Democracy". A source told The Sun, "The label is really glad to have him back. But it is frustrating because the album would have had a much better chance of going to No. 1 if he had only been prepared to show his face."

Since it was released on November 23 in the U.S., "Chinese Democracy" has pulled an estimated 300,000 - 500,000 copies sold but only managed to climb to number two on U.K. Albums chart, beaten down by The Killers' "Day & Age" which landed at the top spot on the chart.

In further statement, the source said that the disappointing result happened because the band missed out the album's promotion project. "People have been trying to contact him for two months and he's been completely AWOL. You would have thought after spending 15 years on an album you might do a few weeks promotion," the source explained.
