Guns N' Roses Guitarist Reveals Secret To Longevity In The Band (Top Story)

On Wednesday Guns N' Roses Guitarist Reveals Secret To Longevity In The Band was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Richard Fortus puts his longevity in Guns N' Roses down to his and Axl Rose's desire to make the music the most important focus for the band. Guitarist Fortus has been with GNR for 15 years and has seen the lineup change regularly. But he's remained a fixture alongside the frontman since joining the group.

While many on the outside focus on the fanfare that surrounds GNR, Fortus insists his and Rose's focus is always on the music. Fortus tells Social Magazine: "We get along really well. I guess we come from a very similar place as far as our influences and definitely relate on that level. Essentially, with Axl, all that really matters to him is the music. So if we relate on that point, then everything else sort of falls into place."

Fortus also reveals that his other band, The Dead Daisies will begin recording a new album early next year. Their last album, Revolucion, was issued earlier this year. He adds: "We will be recording a new album, probably in February. You just have to keep putting out material and keep going, keep touring. You want every record to grow." Read more - here.
