GUNS N’ ROSES Guitarist DJ ASHBA: Writing New Material Is ‘Definitely Our Main Focus Right Now’

K5 TV conducted an interview with GUNS N’ ROSES members Dizzy Reed (keyboards), Tommy Stinson (bass) and DJ Ashba(guitar) on July 16, the day before the band’s concert in Split, Croatia. You can now watch the chat below.

GUNS N’ ROSES lead singer Axl Rose skipped the band’s induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in April and declined to be inducted along with the rest of the group. The singer also reaffirmed that there is no chance of the original lineup reuniting, and seemed to speak directly to fans still hoping for a reunion when he added, “Time to move on. People get divorced. Life doesn’t owe you your own personal happy ending especially at another’s, or in this case several others’, expense.”

In at least a partial nod to his former bandmates, however, Rose wrote, “For the record, I would not begrudge anyone from GUNS their accomplishments or recognition for such. Neither I or anyone in my camp has made any requests or demands of the Hall Of Fame. It’s their show, not mine.”

Original GN’R members Slash, Steven Adler and Duff McKagan, along with later members Matt Sorum and Gilby Clarke, performed three songs at the induction ceremony in Cleveland. They were joined on vocals by Myles Kennedy, who sings in Slash‘s solo band.

In addition sole original member Axl Rose, the current lineup of GUNS N’ ROSES includes guitarists Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, Richard Fortus and DJ Ashba, Stinson, keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Chris Pitman and drummer Frank Ferrer.
