GILBY CLARKE FORMER GUNS N ROSES GUITARIST RELEASES NEW SINGLE
Gilby Clarke is best known for his time in bands like Candy and Kill For Thrill. No that ain’t it, Rockstar: Supernova? Nope, that ain’t it either. Oh yeah, he was once in Guns N Roses. He did actually appear on the Spaghetti Incident, Live Era 88 – 91. As a result, he made it onto the band’s The Greatest Hits album. But, he is best known for taking over the rhythm guitar spot in GNR for Izzy Stradlin. He would tour with the band for several years behind the Use Your Illusion albums.
Over the years he’s worked with Slash’s Snakepit, The MC5, Heart, Kim Fowley, and Nancy Sinatra to name a few. Kim Fowley is known for the Runaways and co-writing with people such as Kiss, among other things. He caught the eye of one Saul Hudson because of his ghostwriting with Fowley. Slash called him one night, and it would change his life forever, making him part of GNR folklore.
