Legendary Axeman DJ ASHBA Inks Major Solo Deal
Legendary GUNS N’ ROSES and SIXX:A.M. guitarist DJ Ashba will release a solo project this year. It was previously reported that the man, the myth the legend DJ ASHBA was working on a new project with SIXX: A.M. bandmate JAMES MICHAEL on a new band named PYROMANTIC. JAMES MICHAEL has since left the band and it’s now pretty much a DJ ASHBA solo project.
story continued below:
DJ ASHBA appeared this week on Fox5‘s “More”. He revealed:
“I just signed a huge deal. I have a thing coming out called ASHBA. It’s a solo deal. So, for the first time, I get to spread my wings and fly. So I’m excited about that. I’m gonna be featuring different singers from different genres on every song. And then I’m gonna tour with just a VJ — just a guitar and a VJ.
“I spent three years in the studio creating this new sound and I took Latin, pop, rock and EDM and I just threw it in a blender as a producer, I’ve done the rock thing, I’ve done that my whole life, but I wanted to create a new sound — something fresh, something anybody could latch on to. If you like Latin, there’s enough of that; if you like rock, there’s enough of it in there. So it’s a really cool, unique sound. I’m pretty proud of it.”
Last year, DJ ASHBA revealed to“Vegas Junkeez” how the project first started saying:
“It started off in the beginning, me and the singer from SIXX:A.M., JAMES MICHAEL we had some time off and we started writing like we did. And it eventually evolved, and obviously, it went in a direction, and I pushed it really hard in a direction, and then JAMES MICHAEL kind of got busy and went off [to do] his thing. But it’s evolved into this incredible thing that’s just awesome. And to have congas and horns… And it’s very worldly. It’s designed to make the body move. It’s full-on dance stuff, but it’s great.”
SIXX:A.M. had originally called it quits in 2018, but appear to be working together again releasing a new song called “Talk To Me” last September. The band, which also features MOTLEY CRUE bassist NIKKI SIXX and drummer DUSTIN STEINKE.
