Former GUNS N' ROSES Guitarist GILBY CLARKE Completes Recording New Solo Album

Former GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Gilby Clarke has completed recording his new album. The disc, which is expected next year, will feature many prominent musical guests, including MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx. "It still needs to be mixed," Gilby tells The Cornwall Seeker. "It's a solo record, but with that being said, there are many guest drummers and bassists. I play all the guitars and vocals. On drums, I had Kenny Arronoff [CHICKENFOOT], Stephen Perkins [JANE'S ADDICTION], Matt Starr [ACE FREHLEY, MR. BIG] and many others; while on bass Sean McNabb [QUIET RIOT, DOKKEN], Muddy Stardust, EJ Curse and Nikki Sixx make appearances."

Clarke replaced founding guitarist Izzy Stradlin in the GUNS lineup in 1991, during the "Use Your Illusion" tour, and stayed with the band for three years.

He has continued as a producer and solo artist since then, while also playing in ROCK STAR SUPERNOVA, HEART and other acts.

Clarke reunited with GUNS members Slash, Steven Adler, Matt Sorum and Duff McKagan at the band's Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction in April 14, 2012, although he himself was not inducted as part of the band.
