Default Guns N’ Roses Announce New Guitarist - 03-31-2009, 02:28 PM

Guns N' Roses got a new guitarist? No more Bucket Head? That blows!

Guns N’ Roses have announced who will replace former NIN guitarist Robin Finck in the band.

DJ Ashaba, co-founder of Nikki Sixx’s side-project Sixx A.M. and a former member of Beautiful Creatures, has been announced as the new guitarist in Guns N’ Roses.

A statement from Axl Rose on the GN’R official website says: “Dj’s a gifted, energetic guitarist that Guns N’ Roses is proud to have on board!! We’re very excited to have the opportunity to work together. Guns’ radar has silently been aware of Dj’s presence for quite some time. He brings a fresh approach to our particular brand of mayhem expanding the tapestry of Guns N’ Roses live. Once Dj’s name was in the hat, the hat disappeared!!”

“It’s an honor to have the opportunity to be a part of a band that I have always loved and respected,” says Dj Ashba. “I’m looking forward to working with Axl, who is not only one of the few great front men of our generation, but a true artist.”

Dj Ashba co-wrote and co-produced Motley Crue’s latest album Saints of Los Angeles, as well as co-writing and co-producing the Sixx AM album, Heroin Diaries.

In other Guns N’ Roses news, the band are said to be weighing up a worldwide stadium tour with Van Halen. This announcement of a new guitarist would seem to support this claim, wouldn’t it?

Interesting that he wrote on the Crue album as well. Wonder if Axel will let him have any songwriting input in this band.

Of course, since it'll take at least 20 years for the follow-up to Chinese Democracy to come out, I may never know!

Wonder if they have to re-write their lyrics after each decade they delay? What might be true about Chinese democracy 10 years ago may not be true tomorrow. Lol,

Talk about procrastination at its finest....

I know i'm in the minority here, but I love Chinese Democracy. It's an epic album with some stellar guitar playing on it.

I haven't heard it.

But then, I don't own a single GnR album either.

It's a very, very challenging album. There's a lot going on in it.

While GNR was on tour (2006 and slightly earlier), Buckethead would do "The Robot" during the solo section of "Nightrain". Hilarious!
