How a New York Doll and Guns N' Roses Stars Became Compulsions

Compulsions frontman Rob Carlyle told Rocksalt.mx how he ended up in a band with Sami Yaffa from Hanoi Rocks and The New York Dolls; and Frank Ferrer and Richard Fortus from Guns N' Roses.

He explained, "In 2003, I drafted Frank and Richard to record a bunch of songs with me after seeing them play together in other local bands. I wanted them in The Compulsions but Richard had already started playing in Guns N' Roses and it wasn't long before he moved from New York to LA.

"Then Frank started playing with Guns, too. So for the next few years I tried building another perfect line-up with different players around town. But obviously that didn't work out too well because now that GN'R has some downtime, I've been calling on Frank and Richard, again. Both of them had played together with Sami before and it was Richard who recently recommended Sami." Read the full interview here
