GUNS N’ ROSES Alumni GILBY CLARKE Releases Brand New Song “Rock N’ Roll Is Getting Louder”
Probably one of the worst kept secrets for GUNS N’ ROSES fans is that the band’s former guitarist GILBY CLARKE is releasing a new solo record. Titled “The Gospel Truth” the first single from the record titled “Rock N’ Roll Is Getting Louder” came out today through Golden Robot Records. Check it out below! No release date has been revealed for the new record
Last year it was announced he had signed a deal with Golden Robot Records and he wasn’t the only person associated with GUNS N’ ROSES to do so. Current GUNS N‘ ROSES keyboardist DIZZY REED put out his record “Rock N’ Roll Ain’t Easy” in 2018 and has a new album in the works.
Last year at NAMM in Anaheim, California, GILBY CLARKE addressed the long delay in getting his latest solo album finished saying
“For me, I can’t do a record unless I feel good about the songs. I wanna make a record that I wanna listen to. So, these songs I’m really excited about. They’re new songs. It really is classic rock. There’s really nothing new on it — it’s just a new version of what I like to do, which is loud guitars, man. So, I went in there. I used guys like Kenny Aronoff on drums, Steve Perkins — some really great players. I played all the guitars and did all the singing on it. But I think it’s good — I think it’s a good fresh approach on classic rock, really.”
GILBY CLARKE will be joined on his latest solo record by members of his solo band he tours with including EJ CURSE (bass/vocals) and TROY PATRICK FARRELL(drums/vocals).
If you remember your GUNS N’ ROSES history, GILBY CLARKE replaced original guitarist IZZY STRADLIN in 1991, but was eventually fired in 1994. He’s also had some stints in other groups playing in SLASH’s SNAKEPIT, ROCK STAR SUPERNOVA and HEART. His solo debut “Pawnshop Guitars” was released in 1994 and is a favourite of many GUNS N’ ROSES fans. GUNS N’ ROSES Guitarist SLASH even played on the song “Tijuana Jail”
GILBY CLARKE was supposed to make at least one appearance with GUNS N’ ROSES as part of the “Not in This Lifetime Tour,” but schedule conflicts prevented that from happening with the guitarist revealing
