Ray Charles

2005 “Chinese Democracy” history: The New York Times publishes a detailed article about the making of “Chinese Democracy,” claiming that it cost $13 million to make, which is later refuted by the band’s then manager. The album's prospects feel dim. The world outside of “Chinese Democracy:” “The Osbournes” and “ Star Trek: Enterprise” come to an end.” “Million Dollar Baby” is named best picture, and the Grammys are Guns N’ Roses-less again, with Ray Charles winning for “Genius Loves Company.”
