Guns N’ Roses Central Interview: Jimmy Ashhurst (Izzy Stradlin & Ju Ju Hounds, Buckcherry, Broken Homes)

Jimmy Ashhurst Interview

This past Saturday Geoff and I had the opportunity to sit down with Bassist Jimmy Ashhurst who played with Izzy Stradlin in the Ju Ju Hounds, Buckcherry and the Broken Homes. Big thanks to Jimmy for his time as we talked for almost 2 hours about his early beginnings, hanging out with Guns N’ Roses, playing with Izzy, Buckcherry and his thoughts on the music industry today.

Mitch Lafon Posts News About Slash

Music journalist Mitch Lafon posted on Facebook that Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash will be writing music for the newly released ‘MX vs ATV All Out’ video game.  Slash worked with Nicholas O’Toole to co-write the theme song for the game. The pair had previously collaborated on the music for Slash’s first ever produced horror film “Nothing Left to Fear”. MX vs ATV All Out is available now for $49.99 on consoles and $39.99 on PC. The game got pretty mediocre reviews on Metacritic getting a 54 for PS4. Check out his post below and a trailer for the game!

One in a Million Removed From Upcoming Guns N’ Roses Box Set

This week, Guns N’ Roses made a big announcement: they would be reissuing their most famous album, 1987’s Appetite For Destruction.

The album, which included Welcome To The Jungle, Paradise City and Sweet Child O’ Mine, would reappear as a five-CD, seven- LP extravaganza, comprising not just the original record but a follow-up EP, G N’ R Lies, and a whole bunch of extra recordings.

But there was one song among that collection that would not be making the cut this time around: One In A Million.

That might have had something to do with the lyrics.

The song was controversial at the time. Rose defended himself in a 1989 interview with Rolling Stone, saying: “I don’t like being told what I can and what I can’t say.”

But the fact that the reissue is appearing without One In A Million still raises questions about how to judge a piece of culture in the decades after it was made.

What’s going on here?

Bands, particularly big Baby Boomer and Gen X acts, re-release classics like this from time to time — it’s a way of milking some extra cash out of the back catalogue.

This re-release comes with buttons, stickers, flyers, posters, patches and photographs, and all up will set fans back nearly $1,000.
