Loder: Hi, here we are again backstage again. Axl Rose - he's back!

Axl: [laughs]

Loder: What took you so long?

Axl: I was just trying to put this monstrosity together.

Loder: What's gonna happen now? Is Chinese Democracy going to come out? Are we gonna see it soon?

Axl: Umm, you'll see it, I don't know if soon is the word. But it will come out and we will, we'll go back, we'll do some more recording and then we'll start the American leg of the tour... And see how it goes from there.

Loder: This has taken a long time.

Axl: Yeah, but it's also how do you rebuild something that got so big and replace virtually every person on the crew, every single thing.

Loder: Yeah.

Axl: And how do you make a whole bunch of guys that are something else into something that already was. I don't know if it's exactly been done like this. And not with the intensity of these players wanting to play the material.

Loder: This is one of the great performances. Congratulations. You really....

Axl: Thanks.

Loder: This is a great band.

Axl: Thanks for that Rio review.

Loder: My pleasure, my pleasure.

Axl: [laughs]

Loder: Axl Rose.

Recap of the interview by MTV News, August 30, 2002:
Axl Rose Says GN'R Waiting Game Won't End Soon

Axl Rose brought Guns N' Roses back to the MTV Video Music Awards Thursday night for the first time in 10 years, but the frontman indicated that the wait for a new album from the band will continue.

"You'll see [the album], but I don't know if 'soon' is the word," Rose explained to MTV News immediately after unveiling the current GN'R lineup to an American television audience for the first time.

"It will come out, and we'll do some more recording and start the American leg of the tour," he promised.

Thursday night's VMA performance marked GN'R's first since 1992, when the band performed "November Rain" with Elton John. The band remained largely off the map in the decade that followed, shedding members and bringing in fresh blood. Axl and his current lineup — which includes drummer Brian "Brain" Mantia, former Replacements bassist Tommy Stinson and guitarists Buckethead and Robin Finck — have been working on an album, Chinese Democracy, for years.

"How do you make a whole bunch of guys into something that already was, and with this intensity of these players wanting to play this material?" Rose said of the delay.

So while Guns N' Roses may be back on the airwaves, they may not be back in record stores any time soon.
