GUNS N' ROSES frontman Axl Rose insists the bands's new album has taken so long to produce because he refuses to release a bad album. The PARADISE CITY rocker has been working on CHINESE DEMOCRACY for over a decade, but Rose defends the time it's taken for the album to come together. He tells New York magazine, "It's not about being a control freak. It's about maybe being smart enough to go, 'Nah, 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 an obvious disaster. "I want to make a good record. I don't want to throw a brick." The band continues to tour and Rose insists the album will be completed before the end of the year (06).
Corgan took to Instagram to confirm rumours of new Pumpkins material, saying the first songs could arrive as early as May.
