Guns N’ Roses are always a hot topic when it comes to rock’ n’ roll and lead guitarist DJ Ashba has been one busy axeman. He is also the guitarist of Nikki Sixx’s band Sixx: A.M., so when DJ Ashba spoke to Sandman of Loudwire Radio, he dished on everything from the future of Guns N’ Roses and uncertainty about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as well as working with Sixx: A.M. and their upcoming performance at Revolver’s Golden Gods awards. Check out the interview below:
Guitarist, songwriter, and producer DJ Ashba has seen his career skyrocket over the last few years, first as an integral part of Sixx:A.M. with Nikki Sixx and James Michael and then as the guitar player of Guns N’ Roses, joining Axl Rose on his tour across the world. Ashba recently opened up to Bravewords in an interview about his future with Guns N’ Roses, how he prepares to write for individual projects, and how Nikki Sixx and Axl Rose have become his best friends.
Nikki Sixx, who doesn't appear to have a moment of downtime thanks to the fact that he pulls double duty in both Motley Crue and Sixx: A.M. and writes books, posted a Facebook update to share some good news about Sixx: A.M. The group is already writing its third album and is possibly eyeing a 2013 release.
