AXL ROSE GIVES KUDOS TO KNAC.COM

DOWNLOAD OF EXCLUSIVE GUNS N’ ROSES TRACK "COMA" GENERATES 75,000 DOWNLOADS IN FIRST THREE WEEKS


SANTA MONICA, Calif., January 19, 2000 -- KNAC.COM (http://www.knac.com), the loudest dot com on the planet, announced today that its exclusive Guns N’ Roses track, "Coma," has been downloaded more than 75,000 times since the song became available on the site December 22, 1999. The announcement prompted a rare comment from the band’s elusive front man Axl Rose.

"KNAC was the only station in the country playing us back when we were in the clubs in Los Angeles, and the fact that they have gone online with the same people working who were around before is amazing," Rose said on why the band chose to give this very special track to the fans through KNAC.COM. "Giving rock fans a technology-based alternative to some of the crap radio...and doing it internationally, I feel very strongly about supporting their efforts. It was also a way to give the fans a cool live version of "Coma," and I felt this was the best way to get it to the fans."

KNAC.COM’s exclusive "Coma" download is a 10-minute plus live version (mixed by Andy "Nirvana" Wallace) of the song that originally appeared on the seminal hard rock band’s 1991 opus Use Your Illusion I. One of the band’s favorite tracks, it simply leveled the audience with pure theatrical intensity when Guns N’ Roses performed it live.

"Coma" does not appear on the U.S. version of the recently released Guns N' Roses Live Era '87 to '93 CD on Geffen Records. Fans will find the song only on the Japanese version of the record or through KNAC.COM’s exclusive download. The track is available on the site in Microsoft’s Windows Media format.

"The popularity of this download proves that the appetite for Guns N’ Roses is still strong," said KNAC.COM’s founder and general manager Rob Jones. "It demonstrates how KNAC.COM is fast becoming the Internet's official home for hard, pure rock around the world."

Guns N' Roses singer Axl Rose has spoken out in support of KNAC.com, the Internet site spin-off of former Los Angeles metal station KNAC-FM. "KNAC was the only station in the country playing us back when we were in the clubs in Los Angeles, and the fact that they have gone online with the same people working who were around before is amazing," Rose said in a statement issued by KNAC's publicist. The Guns N' Roses live track "Coma" has been downloaded more than 75,000 times since it became available late last month on KNAC.com. The song, which originally appeared on Use Your Illusion I (1991), was available in the live version only on the Japanese edition of the band's recently released Guns N' Roses Live Era '87–'93. KNAC.com was established as a metalhead community site on the Web in November 1997, after the radio station went off the air.
