WRITTEN BY

Axl Rose says the reason we've been waiting so long for Chinese Democracy is because he wants to make sure it's "a good record." The Guns N' Roses frontman told New York magazine that he's waiting to get the album just right. "It's not about being a control freak," he said. "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." Rose told the magazine the album will be released by the end of 2006.
