GUNS N' ROSES: 'Greatest Hits' Tops Belgian Album Chart

May 31, 2004

GUNS N' ROSES' "Greatest Hits" compilation rose to No. 1 on the Belgian charts in its tenth chart week, replacing the solo debut of ARID singer Jasper Steverlinck at the top, according to Ultratop. This feat is especially remarkable if you consider that "Greatest Hits" is a collection of previously released songs from a band whose last studio CD, "The Spaghetti Incident?", came out more than a decade ago.

As previously reported, singer Axl Rose and fellow original members Slash and Duff McKagan argued in a lawsuit that Geffen Records was putting out the album without their input. Geffen officials countered that they wouldn't have released the album if Rose had delivered the long-promised album "Chinese Democracy", which has been in the works for seven years.
