GUNS N' ROSES has announced that guitarist D.J. Ashba has joined the band for the upcoming tour!
DJ Ashba who's best known as co-founder of SIXX AM and Beautiful Creatures will officially be replacing current NINE INCH NAILS guitarist Robin Finck in the Guns N' Roses line-up! This should work out well, D.J ASHBA's amazing! He's an all around talent; this should be a good match.
"D.J.'s a gifted, energetic guitarist that GUNS N' ROSES is proud to have on board!" exclaims Axl Rose. "We're very excited to have the opportunity to work together. GUNS' radar has silently been aware of D.J.'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 D.J.'s name was in the hat, the hat disappeared!"
Ashba stated, "It's an honor to have the opportunity to be a part of a band that I have always loved and respected. I'm looking forward to working with Axl, who is not only one of the few great frontmen of our generation, but a true artist."
D.J. Ashba co-wrote and co-produced MÖTLEY CRÜE's latest album, "Saints of Los Angeles", which garnered a 2008 Grammy nomination for "Best Hard Rock Performance", as well as co-wrote and co-produced the SIXX: A.M. album "Heroin Diaries".
