When Kevin Skwerl leaked nine new tracks from long-awaited Guns N’ Roses album Chinese Democracy last week, he expected some fallout. A visit from two “Mulder and Scully” types courtesy of the FBI was not quite what he had in mind, reports Rolling Stone. “It‘s a little creepy they know where I work, "says Skwerl, who posted tracks received from "an anonymous online source" on his blog.
The agents arranged a meeting at the former Universal Music employee’s home to obtain the original song files, which he had already erased in compliance with a cease-and-desist order from Axl Rose's attorneys. “It‘s a legal grey area,” said Skwerl, adding, “I feel like I might survive this.”
