Will Chinese Democracy Come Out In 2006?

Axl Rose talks to New York mag about GN’R’s next album, which has been delayed for 34 years.

“It’s about being maybe smart enough to go, ‘No, that’s a bad idea.’ That’s all it’s about — keeping the ability to at least have a shot as opposed to something that’s just and obvious disaster. I want to make a good record. I don’t want to throw a brick. This cannot be Shaq at the free-throw line.”

He promises the album will be released this year. Really. It will.
