The Queen guitarist flew out to L.A in 1999 to record lead guitar tracks on a song called Catcher N´ The Rye, but now says that Axl has mixed him out.

"It is a shame, perhaps..." says Brian. "I did put quite a lot of work in, and was proud of it, but I could understand if Axl wants to have an album which reflects the work of the members of the band as it is right now."

'Chinese Democracy' is set for release on 24th November.
