DJ Ashba Reflects On His Time With Guns N' Roses

Sixx A.M.

(Classic Rock) DJ Ashba has recalled Guns N' Roses as a being weight on his shoulders now that his six-year term with the band has ended. The guitarist bowed out in 2015, ahead of the return of classic-era members Slash and Duff McKagan for a reunion tour that's gone on to gross nearly $5.5m at each show.

Ashba - who's now concentrating fully on Sixx AM alongside Nikki Sixx and James Michael - tells Overdrive: "It really does feel like a humongous weight has been lifted off my shoulders.

"That was a huge responsibility for me, and to be honest I didn't know how big that weight was going to be. I learned a lot and I'm very grateful for it all - I experienced something for six whole years that money can't buy, and I was able to take away a huge amount of self-growth, and an insight into the workings of a huge band like that."

He adds: "I didn't for one moment anticipate that there was going to be so much criticism, as well as a lot of praise. The whole experience made me grow thick skin. Looking back, I took away so much which I apply to my everyday life, as well as my role in Sixx AM." Read more here.
