Guns N' Roses: Gilby Clarke Vs Axl Rose
Clarke joined GNR in 1991, at the peak of their powers, as a replacement for rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin and toured extensively with the band on their global 'Use Your Illusion' tour. But despite several of the songs from that tour appearing on the final double album, both Clarke and drummer Matt Sorum, who had also joined the band in the midst of their rise a replacement for Steven Adler, were left off the sleeve note credits.
"I think it is personal actually. I was very surprised when I first saw the record, as I hadn't seen it until it was done, that they didn't credit myself or Matt as band members." Clarke told Dani Buarque of the Lokaos Rock Show. "So yeah I think that was something he (Axl) was trying to say to us. You know it's funny that all through the years we were band members, and we were a band, but as soon as things went sour we weren't a band anymore. It's just the way it is."
