Former GUNS N’ ROSES Guitarist GILBY CLARKE Completes Recordings For New Album; NIKKI SIXX Among Guests

Guitarist Gilby Clarke (ex-Guns N’ Roses) is working on a new album. The recordings are complete, however it still needs to be mixed. The album will feature many prominent musical guests including Sixx:A.M./Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx.

“I’ve finished recording the new record, but it still needs to be mixed. It’s a solo record, but with that being said there are many guest drummers and bassist. I play all the guitars and vocals. On drums I had Kenny Arronoff, Stephen Perkins, Matt Starr and many others; while on bass Sean McNabb, Muddy Stardust, EJ Curse, and Nikki Sixx make appearances,” Clarke tells The Seeker.

During his time in Guns N’ Roses, Clarke toured the world, and his fondest memories with the band are those live concerts. “My fondest memories are from the live shows with Guns N’ Roses. I really felt like we were a band of brothers going to war every night to play those wonderful songs, the way they were meant to be heard through blood, sweat, and beers,” Gilby revealed.

In 2017 Slash and Alx Rose reunited Guns N’ Roses for the Not In This Lifetime tour. Clarke was invited to play as a guest, but unfortunately he couldn’t make it due to other commitments. “I think it’s great that Slash and Axl are back together. I think together they can write some great music and finish what they started in putting Guns N’ Roses up there with the best bands ever,” Gilby shares.


Clarke has announced a string of seven headline shows in Ontario, Canada; as well as his participation in a charity event to benefit Cystic Fibrosis. Details are as listed:

21 - Mavericks - Barrie, ON
22 - Maxwells - Waterloo, ON
23 - Col Mustards - Newmarket, ON
26 - This Ain't Hollywood - Hamilton, ON
27 - The Warehouse - St. Catharines, ON
28 - The Rockpile - Toronto, ON
29 - The Brass Monkey - Ottawa, ON

Then on September 30th, Gilby will return to Toronto for the KISS CF Goodbye Event at The Opera House.

This special concert will raise awareness and funds for Cystic Fibrosis - the most common fatal genetic disease affecting Canadian children and young adults. At present, there is no cure. CF is a multi-system disorder that mainly affects the digestive system and lungs.

Joining Gilby at this charity event will be: Rock And Roll Over (KISS Tribute), Ozone Baby (Led Zeppelin Tribute), Staring At The Sun (U2 Tribute)​. Further details can be found here.
