BareBonesMusic.com conducted an interview with GUNS N’ ROSES/SIXX: A.M. guitarist DJ Ashba on the “black carpet” of the third annual Revolver Golden Gods Awards, which was held last Wednesday, April 20 at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, California. You can now watch the chat below.
When asked about what he has planned for the rest of the year, Ashba said, “As of now, we’re gonna be doing more touring for GUNS, and we’re working on new songs every day for GUNS N’ ROSES. [The new] SIXX: A.M. [album, ‘This Is Gonna Hurt’] comes out May 3, and I’m scoring a new movie, and I’ll tell you more about that later. [Laughs] But it’s a horror movie, so it’s good.”
In addition to Ashba and sole original member Axl Rose (vocals), the current lineup of GUNS N’ ROSES includes guitarists Ron Thal and Richard Fortus, bassist Tommy Stinson, keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Chris Pitman and drummer Frank Ferrer.
Ashba joined GUNS N’ ROSES in March 2009 following the departure of Robin Finck.
As previously reported, “Chinese Democracy”, the 2008 album released by the current edition of GUNS N’ ROSES after a 15-year wait, can now be purchased at BestBuy.com for $1.99.
Best Buy was the exclusive U.S. retailer for “Chinese Democracy”, reportedly paying $14 million for 1.6 million copies. But the album was a major sales disappointment, moving less than 620,000 copies despite the curiosity and hype surrounding its release.
