VIDEO: Axl Rose felt pressure to release Chinese Democracy

Another clip from VH1’s That Metal Show’s interview with Axl Rose has surfaced.

This time out, Axl is asked about the pressure he felt from media and the fans to release the “Chinese Democracy” album before he felt it was completed.

“It was a torrential downfall,” says Axl of the pressure directed his way during the process. “You have people just screaming ‘release it!,’ and that’s good that they want it, but what does it mean? I don’t even know what means.”

“My favorite one,” he continued, “I saw a post, it was about Steven [Adler]. And they go, ‘Axl and Steven are having a race to see which one could put out their album last.”

The full session airs 11/11/11 as part of the station’s “National Metal Day.”
