At this stage no replacement has been named. Could we see a return of the KFC loving Buckethead? Or will Axl finally bury the hatchet and invite Slash back into fold? Unlikely…but never say never.
Following six years, DJ Ashba has walked away from Guns N’ Roses.
Ashba confirmed the news in a hand-written letter posted on his official website and explained that he will spend his time focussed on his ‘other’ band, Sixx A.M.
The hand written note reads: “It is with a very heavy heart and yet great pride that I announce that I’ve decided to close this chapter of my life and encapsulate the wonderful times that I’ve shared with Guns N’Roses into fond memories”.Rumours have swirled constantly from a host of Guns N’ Roses band members ever since 2008’s Chinese Democracy (Yes…it’s been 7 years already!) of new material, double albums, and multiple records, yet fans still wait. It’s not the first time. Patient fans of the band waited 15 years before a GNR album surfaced following the woeful, The Spaghetti Incident.
