Yesterday, Classic Rock magazine reported on a recent chat with Axl Rose’s manager Beta Lebeis. She revealed that production on Guns N’ Roses’ long-anticipated sixth album, Chinese Democracy, was completed before Christmas. “Everybody knows that,” said Lebeis, who has worked with Rose for 15 years. Furthering speculation that the marketing of the album is a source of some conflict between Rose and Geffen Records, Lebeis said that Axl is “in negotiations.” Chinese Democracy will be the first collection of original Guns N’ Roses material since the Use Your Illusion I and II releases in ’91. The band reportedly began writing the album in 1994, but progress was halted due to disagreements between Rose and Slash, who left the band in ’96. In 2005, the New York Times reported that production costs on Chinese Democracy had reached $13 million, making it the most expensive recording never to be released.

Who better to handpick an actor to portray her scruffy, pained husband than Courtney Love? Kurt Cobain’s widow has named Ryan Gosling as the actor she’d most like to play Kurt in the film adaption of Charles Cross’ biography of Cobain. After considering Kirsten Dunst, Love reportedly chose Scarlett Johansson to play her role. “Courtney wants the best actors to portray them,” a source told NME.com. “She will be on set all the time giving Scarlett and Ryan advice on what it was like being one part of the most notorious couples since Sid and Nancy. It will be explosive.”

In the flurry of Oscar nominations announced this morning, there were two missing names of particular note: Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder and Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood. Vedder, whose original score for the film Into the Wild has garnered him a heap of praise, had been considered a shoe-in for an Oscar nod, especially following his Golden Globe win for Best Original Song this month. But the music branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences deemed the soundtrack ineligible for consideration due to “predominant use of songs.” The Pearl Jam frontman still has the Grammys to look forward too, though. His Into the Wild song “Guaranteed” has been nominated for Best Song Written for a Motion Picture, Television, or Other Visual Media.

Stone Temple Pilots are prepping for a reunion, according to the band’s lead singer Scott Weiland, who announced his plans on-stage during a recent solo performance in Florida. This isn’t the first fans have heard from Weiland about a possible reunion. In 2007, his comments in a Washington Post story hinted that he wasn’t done with Stone Temple Pilots, and this month he confirmed to the Miami Herald that there would be a reunion in the coming months. Interestingly, Weiland was absent from his show with current band Velvet Revolver, scheduled for the Sundance Film Festival this past Sunday. Instead, the band enlisted vocal help from the audience. It’s been speculated that Weiland missed his flight to Park City, Utah.

An upcoming photography exhibit featuring the work of the late Linda McCartney was announced last week. Paul McCartney, his photographer daughter Mary, and curator James Hyman went through thousands of Linda’s photos—many of them family snapshots, landscapes, and celebrity portraits. Also in the mix, of course, are photos of the Beatles. “Hyman, my daughter Mary, and I have worked on it for three years,” Paul McCartney told the Guardian Unlimited. “The result is a sensitive selection of works that really demonstrates Linda’s prodigious output. The photographs not only illustrate her incredible talent as an artist, but as someone who was very much connected to the culture of the times, and wasn’t afraid to challenge herself, or her subject.” The exhibit will open at the James Hyman Gallery in London sometime between April and June. It will be the first major exhibit of Linda McCartney’s work.

Against Me! and Jimmy Eat World have joined the Foos for the first leg of the tour, and Serj Tankian and Hi-Fi Hand Grenades will take over as tour mates for later shows. “We played together [with the Foo Fighters] at a radio festival in the fall,” Against Me! frontman Tom Gabel told Rolling Stone of the pairing. “My bandmates were hanging out in the Foos’ dressing room saying, ‘Come on, take us on tour!’ We didn’t think it would actually happen, but here we are!”
