Guns N' Roses Now What Axl Wanted It To Be Says Former Member

(hennemusic) Former Guns N' Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke was asked his opinion about the current version of his former band. Here is what he had to say:

"As it stands? Well, knowing Axl, and knowing Axl 20 years ago, and knowing what he wanted to do, I would assume that he's a happy guy," says the guitarist.

"This is, [from] what he explained to me, what he wanted the band to be. When we had our, what I call, a disagreement, he wanted to take the band in a new direction. He wanted to bring in lots of people and this is what he envisioned. I assume he is happy. Is it the kind of music that I enjoy? Some of it, some of it. I think it's creative and I think it's what music is supposed to be. It's supposed to be original and creative and I think it is all those things. It's just, to me, when I think of Guns N' Roses, it doesn't sound like Guns N' Roses to me. But as I say, if this was an Axl Rose album, it'd be fantastic, because it's good music. It is! I can't say it's not good music." more on this story
