Gilby Recalls Firing From Guns N' Roses (Top Story)

On Wednesday Gilby Recalls Firing From Guns N' Roses was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Former Guns N' Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke recalls how a "pissed off" Axl Rose brought his spell with the band to an abrupt end. He spent three years with GNR after replacing Izzy Stradlin in 1991 and says Rose was the one who wielded the axe.

Clarke tells Front Row Ravers: "Axl one day just wanted to change things up. I honestly didn't know what he wanted to do. He never talked to me directly, I always dealt with Slash.

"There was one week I was in the band and then the next week he was just pissed off with something. And finally one day, the checks stopped coming. That's how it all ended."

Clarke, who recently said couldn't see Slash reuniting with Rose in GNR, is still on talking terms with the guitar hero. And he says Slash is even more famous now than he was at the height of GNR's fame. Read more - here.
