Calling Chinese Democracy the "new" Guns N' Roses CD is a little misleading — bandleader Axl Rose has been working on many of these songs for 14 years. Host Andrea Seabrook samples a few tracks from what has been dubbed the most expensive album ever recorded.

Rolling Stone senior writer David Fricke joins us to tell the story behind "Chinese Democracy."
